Welcome to the blog! I am so happy you are here!
My name is Rachel and I live with my husband in our big yellow house where I spend time doing all things home related. I also work at a church, drink coffee like it’s going out of style, and spend a lot of time cooking for my Low-FODMAP diet.
Being outside is our jam. You’ll catch us doing things like hiking, archery, kayaking, traveling, hanging with friends and taking evening walks around our neighborhood.
Life threw us a curve ball when I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. You can read more about that story here. As a young, newly married couple we were forced to figure out a new normal for our family. We both have faced a tremendous amount of challenges, heartaches, disappointments and grief. But God is in the business of healing and restoring us and bringing good out of our suffering.
I know what it feels like when life doesn’t go the way you hoped or planned. I know how it feels to live in fear, worry and anxiety, unsure of what the future might bring. But when life feels chaotic and hope turns to despair, Jesus is still there.
God deeply loves you and has great purpose and plan for your life. It may not always look the way you expect but you can still be confident of this: that God is good, He is in control and He can be trusted. No matter what you face, God has been there and He is with you, providing the power and strength you need to handle whatever comes your way. You are not forgotten or alone. God knows your situation, He sees your pain and He cares.
Keep holding onto Him. He is worth it.
I am learning more with each day that God’s way of doing life is the best way. A personal relationship with Him and obeying His Word will bring more peace, love, joy and hope than you ever thought possible. The Bible is still relevant today and can transform every area of your life!
My goal and passion is to use writing and my post-graduate training in Spiritual Formation and Discipleship to teach you how to apply the Bible to your life, become stronger in your faith and learn how to remain steadfast in challenging circumstances.
So grab a cup of coffee…must…have…coffee…and feel free to browse around!
