How to Exchange Pressure for Peace

The pressure in my life has been rising for some time now. We all feel it. Some seasons it’s more intense than others. Some pressure can be good because it can shape and mold us into the person we are called to be. The problem with too much pressure is that it has the potential to steal our peace. This morning as I had my quiet time I told the Lord I felt like I might erupt if the pressure doesn’t let up soon. I immediately felt him say, “Rachael, will you exchange that pressure for my peace?”. Of course,...

Hi friends, The day I have been working toward for a long time is finally here! The Real Talk with Rachael Podcast has officially launched!

Why I Don’t Schedule Time to Pray {Book Review & Giveaway}

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing. 1 Thes. 5:16-17 I love to pray. I’m not talking about the kind of fancy prayers that put you to sleep.

We do it so much without giving it any thought. I do not have to write myself a note on my calendar to brush my teeth, it just happens because it is a part of my lifestyle. And if...

Purpose over Position {#realtalkwithRachael}

Hi friends, It’s been a while since I’ve written about a #realtalkwithrachael topic. Mostly because I am working on launching the “Real Talk with Rachael” podcast (more info on that coming soon)! I recently stepped down from a position that some might consider having great influence. When I shared with someone that I stepped down from it, she said: “wow, I can’t believe you would give up that position”. Our conversation has made me reevaluate my “why” on things I do in life. It can be so tempting to stay in a job or position of leadership simply because...

What Do You Really Believe About God?

What do you really believe about God?  Like most Southerners, I grew up attending church at least 3 times a week. If there was an evangelist in town we were literally at the church every day of the week (any other evangelical kids in the house?!). To top it all off, I was a pastor’s kid. Given my upbringing, one might assume that I know the Bible front to back and can quote scripture on cue. But one would be wrong in assuming such a thing. Simply growing up in church does not save us nor does it ensure...
