Let me tell you, friend, how I LEAPED out of the shower when I got an email from this guest agreeing to be on our show.

Today on the podcast, I'm thrilled to welcome Blake Guichet, a content creator, entrepreneur, author, and the founder of the Crappy Christian Co. Blake did something that was neither "typical" nor "expected" after her reckoning with what the Bible actually said about the Proverbs 31 woman. This realization inspired her to establish a platform that fosters open discussions about challenging topics such as shame and mental health—issues often avoided in Christian circles. Listen in for our candid conversation as we delve into issues like legalism, breaking free from a performance-based approval mentality, speaking truth to power, and what it means to be both Crappy and Unpolished Christians.

In this episode, you'll be able to:

  • Build strategies to counteract toxic messages of legalism to break free from a performance-based faith;
  • Gain insights on engaging with the world during challenging times and strengthening your faith amidst darkness;
  • Learn techniques to strengthen your faith and navigate through challenging questions.


Blake Guichet, better known as the Girl Named Blake, is the host of the Confessions of a Crappy Christian Podcast and the author of her book with a similar title, Confessions of a Crappy Christian Real-Life Talk About All the Things Christians Aren’t Sure We’re Supposed to Say and Why They Matter to God. Blake's mission is to teach women how to use their God-given gifts for the Kingdom. She is a proud Enneagram 8, American history buff, and playlist enthusiast whose primary goal in all aspects of her ministry is to tell the truth while always pointing people to Jesus.
