    How can you honor God this halloween?

    So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God. – 1 Corinthians 10:31 Supplies I needed? Printer Paper Bags ($1 store bought) Candy Scissors LOVE– the most important Ever since finding my new church I always have this bee buzzing in my head asking if what I am doing brings God glory. Sometimes I get annoyed because I am not sure how EVERYTHING I do can glorify God… But the more I have allowed myself to see God in things, I am able to notice how he uses me for his own purpose. So, every year we go to Yogi Bear for…

    Why did I start Rachel’s Craft Room

    What: Rachel’s Craft Room is a Personalized Gifts and D├ęcor shop. This “Business” came from months of feeling like I had no meaningful purpose…Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my kids, and my husband but that wasn’t enough for me… I can’t possibly love my kids and husband the way I want because we live in a world full of hate and I am doing NOTHING about it because my voice is too small. I realized I didn’t have a real “dream”. I went through a lot of emotions to figure out who I am and what I desire. So I made a list of things I can do that will bring glory to God, that I…

    Can you Love someone whom your fighting with?

    My Husband and I got into a terrible fight last week. The kind of fight you leave from feeling not only worse about your relationship, but also about yourself. The kind of fight you’ll continuously replay in your head trying to figure out what could have gone differently. This got me thinking, is it possible to argue with someone while still coming from a loving place? I cannot be alone in this struggle. If I am being honest, I left our argument feeling like my husband and I would just have to live as roommates, that is just going to have to be enough. And seriously, God bless my husband, because…

    Love Wins

    If you don’t know me, my name is Rachel. I am a Wife, Mother, Daughter, Sister & Friend. The more I thought about blogging, the less I wanted to do it. I honestly have HORRIBLE grammar. But, after a good bit of research, I decided I wanted to give it my best shot, and get started. For years I have felt misunderstood and alone with a lot of my struggles. This isn’t to say I didn’t have any one to go to, because I did! I have the most supportive and loving people in my life, especially my husband. I have always felt uneasy about not knowing my “why.” Who really am I? I…
