S2 E4: Rachel Joy Welcher - Talking Back to Purity Culture
Show Notes

In S2E4 of the SheRecovery Podcast, you'll hear from Rachel Joy Welcher. In this interview, Rachel discusses the impact purity culture has had on the generation that grew up in it. Many of the messages of purity culture offered promises of a kind of life that real life couldn't keep, nor does the Bible actually offer. If you grew up in purity culture and have found that life doesn't match the narrative, you don't want to miss this candid interview full of truth and redemption. 

Rachel is a columnist and editor at Fathom magazine. She is the author of two books of poetry: Blue Tarp and Two Funerals, Then Easter and her most recent book Talking Back to Purity Culture: Rediscovering Faithful Christian Sexuality. Her writing has also appeared in Fathom magazine, The Gospel Coalition, Mere Orthodoxy, Relevant, and The Englewood Review of Books. She lives in Glenwood, Iowa, with her husband, Evan. You can learn more about her at RachelJWelcher.com.
