Hi, I am Rach!
As you can probably guess, I love coffee. As I was growing closer to the Lord, I realized how much I love going on coffee dates with the Him. Everyday, we would go to coffee together and just talk about life. Talk about the hard, the good, the normal, and most importantly: HOW GOOD HE IS!
I am passionate about people, specifically young women knowing their identity in Christ and walking in the calling He has over their life. I enjoy everything 90's (music, cheesy movies, and fashion.) I have a Golden Retriever named Napa, in whom is my spirit animal. I have seen the series Parks and Recreation...6 times through. Follow along with me as I share revelations that the Lord has put on my heart.
A lil' background on me!
I grew up in a great christian family, played all the sports and had all the friends. When I stopped playing soccer, my life crumbled and so did my identity.
I tried putting my identity into everything else around me. I would try getting as much affirmation from guys as I could. A big way I did that was through Instagram and posting pictures that should not have been posted. I would look for comments and DM's saying how pretty I was. Every night I was crying myself to sleep wondering what was wrong with me and why guys only liked me for my appearance. Why was I not good enough?
One night when I was home alone, everything had caught up to me, I had an anxiety attack. I had no idea what was happening at the time, all I knew was that I was shaking uncontrollably and couldn't stop crying. It was almost like it was verbal: "you need to kill yourself, you are worthless, you will never be anything," the voices in my head were telling me.
My friend of 12 years, who proclaims to not believe in anything or anyone, texted me. "Hey I don't know what you and your family are talking about when you guys say God has a plan and purpose for everything, but I know that you have been going through a lot lately. I just want to say I love you and care for you and everything is going to be ok."
God used someone who doesn't even believe in Him, without them ever knowing.
I then got involved at a local church because my dad wanted me to go on their Mexico mission trip. Everything is history from there.
