About Me


Hey, I'm Rachel.

I'm a daughter of God.

I grew up as a MK in a third-world country.  It was a great way to grow up!

I left home when I was 18 and traveled half-way around the world to attend a small private collage in Wisconsin where I met my husband, Philip.  He is the most amazing & wonderful man and I fall more in love with him every day.  He is a great provider, a fun Daddy, and a lover of theology.  Together we have weathered some hard storms and I am so blessed to walk through life beside him!  We currently live in North Carolina so he can attend seminary.

We have 3 crazy boys, Matthew, Daniel & Thomas.  They are God's way of ensuring that my life will never be boring or quiet.  They drive me insane and make me laugh and I love them to bits.  I also love when they go to bed and I get to enjoy a few brief moments of peace & quiet.




This blog is a collection of bits and pieces of my life-journey.  All of it.  The things that make me laugh and cry.  The things I'm learning about myself and my Abba and a million other things from parenting and forgiving to cooking and taking pictures.


Thanks for keeping me company!
