#239: A Better Life with Rebecca Smith

Are you racing towards your goals? Running away every chance you can? I sure do. We could all use a gentle reminder to slow down and listen to what God may be telling us. This week we are bringing you an exclusive interview with our very own Rebecky (https://www.instagram.com/rebeccasmithonline/) ! There are no problems this month as we celebrate Rebecca Smith’s vulnerable and sweet page-turner that launched this week. In A Better Life: Slowing Down to Get Ahead (https://www.amazon.com/Better-Life-Slowing-Down-Ahead/dp/0310357578) , Rebecca tells us many personal stories of how she took baby steps and followed God’s lead to find her purpose. Even though she is one of my dearest friends, I didn’t know the sweet story behind Better Life Bags (https://betterlifebags.com/) before reading. I loved each chapter more than the last and I’m so happy she shared her heart with all of us. Rebecca Smith lives in a low-income area of Detroit, Michigan with her husband, four children, and many miscellaneous pets. She started a custom handbag company in her basement with a mission to hire women who have various barriers to employment. These women are adopted into the Better Life family and given a chance to succeed in life, family, and friendship.  WHAT WE CHAT ABOUT: an update on Better Life Bags (https://betterlifebags.com/) Rebecca and Katie - who’s Emily’s sister?
