Hi there! I’m Rachel, a piano teacher, farm aide (taxi-driver, sandwich-maker, tractor-part-picker-upper), and writer. A handsome guy named Greg conveniently serves as my best friend, banker, and husband, and we recently had our first baby, the sweetest, most precious girl. My faith in Jesus undergirds everything I do.

I’m a Kansas girl, wind-blown but enamored by our dreamy sunsets and fields of sunflowers. Part of my heart belongs to the Missouri Ozarks, among whose rolling hills I frolicked—oh, I mean lived—the first decade of my adult life.

I studied youth ministry, counseling, and Bible with a side of piano and an emphasis in fun at Southwest Baptist University and the Kanakuk Institute. The through-line of my life’s assorted (That’s a nice word for random.) jobs and volunteer work has been mentoring, simply doing life intentionally with people on different stages of their journeys than myself.

I need coffee, sunshine, and quality time with my people real bad. It doesn’t hurt to have a few travel adventures on my calendar. Speaking of my calendar, I believe anything can be accomplished with a good old-fashioned paper planner and a colorful felt-tip pen. My love of both cooking and eating is really a chicken-egg situation, and either way I want all the Mexican foods all day long. My radio’s tuned to country and my tv to the Hallmark Channel.

Here on the blog I write about what I’m doing, learning, laughing about, and loving as I endeavor to flourish on this side of the fence. Join me!


I'd love to hear from you! Contact me.
