Cherish The Moment to read all about her life with 5 kiddos and a rather rustic living situation. Here is my interview with Rachel.
Who are you anyway?
I'm a joyful, animated: wife, homeschooling mommy of five and child of God. I laugh easily and smile a lot, but I'm also quick to feel the pain of others. I dream big and I'm not easily discouraged. I feel that my personality has been shaped more by the times of trial and hardship than of the times of ease.
What are you passionate about?
I am passionate about encouraging and helping mothers and wives to live lives of joy, peace and freedom. I am also deeply passionate about children. I long to be a mother to the motherless; to foster and adopt waiting children.
What is your greatest asset?
I used to be quick to judge, but over time I've learned to look for both sides of every story. This has been such a help to me in understanding others, problem solving and building relationships.
What inspires you?
I am inspired by people who give their lives to joyfully serving others. I long for a servant's heart, that doesn't look for praise, but finds joy in blessing others.
What makes you feel capable?
When I recognize that I am weak. I have found that when I feel like I'm doing really good-that's when everything falls apart! But when I lean on God's strength- then I'm strong.
If you could share one message to the world, what would that be?
Being interviewed is a great way to learn more about yourself.
But more seriously... Life is a gift; don't take it for granted.
