What it is Like To Have Anorexia

This was recorded a month or two ago, but I felt like it was a good time to release it. I get a lot of questions about living with anorexia, so hopefully this answers some of them and provides some perspective.

Healing Wounds – Life After Purity Culture

The Scarlet VirginsLegalism in purity culture produces shame, which in turn can cause internalized self-hatred. Addiction, mental health issues, and self-harm are all a result of this internalized self-hatred.

In this episode, Rebecca talks about the scars we carry, whether they are physical or mental, and introduces a new way of thinking about our permanent marks. Jesus has scars just like us, and ours serve as a perfect way to point us to Him.

Hangups In Marriage After Purity Culture

The Scarlet Virgins
Many purity culture “graduates” experience hangups when they get married when it comes to their sexual lives and relationship with their spouse. The fear and shame learned from purity culture often leads them to stay silent about their private thought lives and other intimate details that should be freely shared with their spouse.

In this episode, Rebecca addresses a few of these hangups and encourages spouses to love one another fully by working together to overcome these hangups.

Mindset in Marriage – Life After Purity Culture

In this episode, Rebecca challenges some of the common mindset problems that disrupt healthy sexuality such as the nasty rumor that women aren’t sexual. She also addresses some of the insecurities that crop up for both sexes, like body imagine issues and previous sexual encounters or assaults.”

Why I Talk About Taboo Topics

My Experience With Prenatal Depression

I recorded this video after one of my friends requested it because she is currently suffering from prepartum depression. When I was pregnant, no one told me there was even a term for depression related to pregnancy WHILE you are pregnant. All I ever heard about was postpartum depression.

Some of the factors funneling in to my own experience included a high stress environment at the university I was attending, in addition to several difficult health problems in pregnancy like ICP, Preeclampsia, and Hyperemesis Gravidarum.

If you currently struggle with prepartum (or prenatal) depression, please reach out to a safe person! You can always email me and talk about your feeling or lack of feeling bonded to your baby. Prenatal depression doesn’t make you a bad mom.

Body Image, Bloating & Dieting

Hey y’all!

I had to start a new special diet (on top on my diet for food allergies) recently due to candida. I was a bit nervous about it because of my struggle with anorexia so I wanted to shoot a video to talk through it and explain what is going on in my life with this particular battle front. I’m an open book, and I’m here for you if you struggle too! Any questions, just ask! 🙂
