Welcome to my little home on the Internet. My name is Rachel, and I’m a 20-something writer with a passion for topics of faith, compassion (and self-compassion!), holistic wellness, authenticity, and heart-centered living. I’m all about the inner journey of life.
One of the biggest influences in my writing (and in my life in general) is my battle with the chronic illnesses Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME/CFS), Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), and Fibromyalgia (FM). Those are some pretty fancy names, so you can just call me a “spoonie” (which is an agreeable nickname for people going through ongoing health troubles.)
Living with pain is a difficult reality, but this experience has given me a deeper compassion, tenderness, and understanding for others going through difficulties in life. I love the friendships and community I’ve built with others as we go through our battles together, and I hope you’ll join in! That’s what my space and my writing are all intended for: authentic connection with each other and with Jesus as we brave our brokenness together.
