Hey Ya'll

I'm Rachel. Take your shoes off and stay awhile ...

Here I Am

Here I Am

Hey ya'll, it's just me. You know the fragile, worrisome, some days bitter woman behind Rejoice & Crow. Although, I have an about section where you can learn more about me. I wanted to touch base for a hot second and let you know really what this whole thing is truly about. 

I write a little about homeschooling, I write a lot-I mean A LOT about my kids. I write about my marriage, mostly how I'm a failure. But at the root of all those topics my goal is to emphasize the hope after sexual abuse. Primarily I write about my faith; that is: my belief in Jesus Christ.

My mission is for my story of recovery to inspire others to live out their faith boldly. My hope is that no matter what sarcasm, criticism, or attack against me and/or my writing I will continue to shed light on an important issue.

I write a lot about my kids and about homeschooling because that is the season that I am in and where I am comfortable. I write also about parenting my children to prove that I'm imperfect and God's guidance has been absolutely perfect. I write about my marriage to illustrate my failures and flaws while attempting to give hope to others who have a similar story. I write about my daily life because living on the other side of sexual abuse or truly any sin (self-inflicted or otherwise) is a constant learning and growing experience.

I want you to believe I'm perfect because I still hold onto delusional sins. My writing, my testimony,however, will say otherwise about my hopeful perfectionism. Prayerfully my testimony will glorify God.

I say that because, I do not identify as a victim of sexual abuse. I identify as a follower of Jesus. My story and my struggles are not specific to one demographic but rather inclusive of everyone.  

In The End
