With so much uncertainty in the world today, anxiety and stress are on the rise. It can be especially challenging to break through negative thoughts and unhelpful habits. But Rebekah and Gabe Lyons are on a mission to bring renewal. In the Rhythms for Life podcast, the couple guides listeners toward practices that lead to wholeness and a flourishing life.
Launching along with the 2019 release of Rebekah’s book, Rhythms of Renewal: Trading Stress and Anxiety for a Life of Peace and Purpose, the Rhythms for Life podcast is all about cultivating spiritual and emotional health. Each episode centers on one or more healthy lifestyle patterns: rest, restore, connect, and create. These rhythms are explored from a faith-based perspective and intertwined with different topics throughout the podcast, from mental health to marriage to the workplace.
Rhythms for Life is quite refreshing—largely due to the abundance of wisdom and practical advice. Gabe and Rebekah approach every idea with thoughtfulness, and the experts they invite onto the show offer enriching conversations. What’s especially helpful is the focus on ordinary, seemingly mundane practices that can actually leave lasting impact.
It’s also important to note that this podcast does some justice to mental health struggles, which are often misconstrued within the context of Christianity. Rebekah frequently shares her own personal struggles with anxiety along with complete empathy and support from Gabe. Several episodes also cover this topic in-depth, such as the discussion with John Mark Comer on the root of anxiety. In every instance, there seems to be a healthy mixture of practicality and biblical truth.
For those who crave a more meaningful life, the Rhythms for Life podcast is an ideal place to start. New episodes are released (somewhat) weekly and are available for listening on most podcast platforms.
