Sistah Girls, I’m so excited to have Rachel E. Cargle on the podcast!

Activist, philanthropist, and CEO Rachel E. Cargle grew up in the Christian faith, she went away to college and made Christian friends, she even found a good Christian boyfriend who would later become her husband.

On the surface Cargle had it all, but what does having it all mean if you’re not fulfilled?

Have you ever thought about what your life would look like if you decided to live out another version of your story? That’s exactly what Cargle did, after being married for a few years she decided marriage wasn’t for her and got a divorce. She left college, let go of her Christian faith, and became a feminist.

I know… and that’s not even me giving away her story; we didn’t scratch the surface.

In Cargle’s memoir, A Renaissance of Our Own: A Memoir & Manifesto on Reimagining, she takes readers on a journey into reimagining what life could be outside of what society tells you.

At the end of each chapter, she invites readers to question and wonder with writing exercises what their life could be if they decide to reimagine a different version.

What are your highest values for yourself? What does intimacy look like? What is your life work? What does rest look like? These are all questions that Cargle asks us to investigate as she uses her life as an example.

Using her umbrella company The Loveland Group Cargle has created social ventures that include The Great Unlearn, a self-paced, donation-based learning community, The Great Unlearn for Young Learners, an online learning space for young folks launching in 2022, and Elizabeth’s Bookshop & Writing Centre, an innovative literacy space designed to amplify, celebrate and honor the work of writers who are often excluded from traditional cultural, social and academic canons.
