Rebecca appeared as a guest on CL Gammon’s radio show to discuss her journey from mental illness, eating disorders, addiction, and more. The interview is about twenty minutes long, and you can listen to it by clicking HERE.
Rebecca Aarup is a redeemed prodigal, set free from the guilt of suffering with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, addiction, and more. She was also freed from the oppression of legalism and living life as a Pharisee. She now enjoys sharing her story of coping daily with the stigma of mental illness while living a full life in Christ and pursuing His purpose, as well as teaching about spiritual warfare and the importance of understanding our identity in Christ in order to embrace the fullness of life Jesus wants us to experience (despite the struggles and imperfections we all have!). If you’re looking for authenticity and “realness”, this is the place for you!
Rebecca is also an author and freelance writer; she contributed several articles to The Christian Online Magazine as a health columnist, created S.E.R.V.A.N.T. Sisters women’s online devotional ministry (no longer active), and has written nearly 50 devotionals and articles for both print and online publications including Light from the Word (Wesleyan Publishing House), The Vision (Word Aflame Publications), The Secret Place (Judson press), Evangel (Light and Life Communications), and Mustard Seed Ministries. She also released a Bible Study, The Word: Six Lessons from Psalm 119, which is available as a free download on her website or in print form from Amazon (all proceeds from purchases of this Bible study are donated to the Shalom Orphanage in India). Beyond writing, Rebecca is a wife, mom, and Bible student at Liberty Home Bible Institute, a division of Liberty University, currently pursuing a certificate in General Biblical studies. She lives in Glendale, Arizona with her husband Chris, and daughter, Samantha. You can read more from Rebecca by subscribing to her blog (it’s free) and following her on twitter and facebook.

Hi Rebecca, hope this note finds you doing well.
Rebecca, I have a question: how do I post pictures (logos, etc.) so they show up on the side of my blog? Thanks! 🙂

I enjoyed visiting your blog today. I am a Liberty U grad and author as well. I enjoyed your post about David Platt’s booklet. Blessings!
Thanks for stopping by, I am thrilled to have met a co-Liberty student! 🙂
I just wrote a blog about your title verse, the undivided heart. You might enjoy reading it, even though the same verse has already blessed you.
I’ll have to check that out!
I’ve nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award. Click here for more info: http://pastorchrisjordan.wordpress.com/2012/06/16/one-lovely-blogger-award/.
Your daughter is so cute, Rebecca!
Thank you, Joe! Well, actually I can’t take credit, she is all the Lord’s making (but He did a superior job, if I may say so myself!)
Yes, He did! I have two kids myself. Both boys: almost 6 years and 8 months.
Just wanted to let you know that I nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award. I appreciate the transparency and truthfulness with which you write. Keep up the good work.
Wow!! Thank you! What an amazing gift to grace me before I sleep tonight. I truly appreciate your comments and support!
Thanks so much for following my blog. I like the way you differentiated between being a s0-called Christian and leading an abundant Christ-centred life!
Thanks! Its true, once you’ve experienced authentic freedom you see things from a much different perspective. I feel like my life has just began!
So nice to meet you! God bless you as you live for Him! 🙂
Thanks! You as well!!
Wonderful work, Rebecca! Keep persevering!
Thank you so much for the encouragement! I enjoyed your blog and look forward to reading more.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I hope you enjoyed your time there. I am looking forward to reading some of your stuff here.
Thanks for reading mine as well! I am always on the hunt for great writers who love Jesus, I’m glad I stumbled across your blog!
John Eldredge is a favourite of mine too..
I’m in a place in my life right now..where God is healing me from years of pain..and I’ve only really recently (over the past 2 or so months) reconnected on a level where I can finally recognise who *I* am..
I thank you for stopping by my blog..your posts are really a blessing..
I’m looking forward to reading more..learning more and being blessed!
Thanks for dropping by my site. Lord bless!!
Thanks for visiting my site. It gave me the chance to see yours – and it was a blessing. I can relate to you since I was brought up in a very legalistic church. I, too, am starting to walk in the realization that I don’t have to earn God’s love. I’m glad to have found your site. Keep spreading the good Word!
