I’m Rachel. And I want to love, to live, to disciple and to teach, like Jesus commanded us.

I write. About how I try to live, love, disciple and teach and the struggles this brings. It’s not easy being a true follower of Jesus, so let’s stop pretending it is. No one is perfect, no one has all the answers and that includes me. That doesn’t mean we stop trying to become better at loving, living, discipling and teaching. It does mean we are honest about it.

Teens are my favorite people in the world and I have a background in youth ministry, which shows in the teen or youth ministry related posts. My first published book is a also youth ministry book. It’s called Beyond Small Talk and it’s a great practical read for anyone who struggles making conversations with teens.

I also write fiction, as of yet unpublished. I’m hoping that will change.
