Be Near To Me, Lord

No matter where you are today. Allow these words in this song to wash over you:


Do you want to transform your time with God?


About a month ago, I downloaded this new app from Proverbs 31 Ministry. And I absolutely love it! I just wanted to share with my readers. This app has allowed me to refresh my quiet times in the morning. I spend a little longer than 5 minutes 🙂 But the great thing is you can make it your own.

Here is a little bit about the app:

Throw Back Thursday


Hello world! This is a throw back Thursday post to the time when I used to blog! HA!

Remember when I used to blog all the time? Yeah, it’s been a while. Over the last two years, I need to give myself some margin. So I had to give up a few things. Blogging was one of the things I stopped. But it’s been almost a year and I have missed writing so much. So i’m back!

Now the question is…what do I write about?

I think I will write about the ways God teaches me. It’s through dreams, sermons, books, people, nature, His word, and so much more. So starting next week, I will begin to share. Hopefully you will want to come along on my journey. And share with me how He teaches you!

Love, Rachael

To That Mom.

To That Mom,

The one who is missing their mom.

The one who is missing their kids who are now in college.

Or the mom who just misses a child who was lost or a child that never came.

Maybe you are the mom who is over-worked from out of the home job.

Or are a single mom raising kids without any help.

The one who feel like a failure at the end of the day.

The one who collapses once the kids get into bed.

The mom who was up all night with a sick toddler.

Or the mom who was up off and on with a newborn.

Maybe you are pregnant for the first time or second or third and you are just exhausted.

You could be the mom who cares for little children all day long and craves for bedtime.

Or…maybe, just maybe…

You could be the mom who works a little harder,

finds joy,

sees improvements,

finds success even in failure…

But most of all you could be the mother who depends completely on Jesus.

Whoever you are mom, know that being the mom who completely leans on Jesus is the best you can always be.

This world will always suck you dry, but Jesus always fills up. And your children are a blessing from God…Don’t ever forget that!

Moms, I need to hear this myself most days. Being mommy to little kiddos is hard work! But we must persevere. Perspecitive changes everything!

Happy Mother’s Day!


I am Yours, You are Mine!

Yesterday at church we learned a new song. It was so powerful I was literally in tears during the service. So I just wanted to share the song with my readers. This particular video has the words. I pray they wash over you as they washed over me.

This has become my prayer:

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

New blog structure!

So I have been thinking about what I want this blog to be lately. And here is what I came up with…

1- A record of my family.
2- A place to share ways/devotions to bring others closer to my Heavenly father.
3- An attempt to teach others what I have been learning.

So with that being said, I’ve decided about doing themed days. So starting next week you can expect to get 4 posts a week from me. Hope you enjoy!

Maniac Monday (used to share recipes, meal plans, advice on organizing your home)
Wordless Wednesday (used to reflect on the blessings in my life, without words)
Thirsty Thursdays (used to share devotions or verses that have spoken to me)
Saturday Stories (used to share a fun story or sweet moment from my family)

3 weeks ago…

Three weeks ago I went back to work. And the last 21 days have been a whirlwind. It is a lot of work to work outside the home.

Anyway, my blog has taken the bottom of my to-do list. I have bigger, more important things like caring for these guys…

I will be back soon…I do have lots to write about!
