A Better Wife in the Bedroom

SEX! Whoo! Its the blogpost on Song of Solomon we’ve all been waiting for! But perhaps to the disappointment of some and the relief of my mother, this won’t be a cosmopolitan type post giving 10 ways biblically to blow his mind in bed. While this book is explicit, it’s not porn stars and popsicles… Continue reading A Better Wife in the Bedroom

A Better Wife in Friendship

I love my single friends. They remind me to serve others and be involved with people outside the four walls of my home. I love my dating friends. They remind me of what that spark and excitement looks like in relationships. But I gotta tell you, there’s no friends like your fellow wife friends. There’s… Continue reading A Better Wife in Friendship

A Better Wife in Pursuit

I have a confession to make. I have a tendency to be lazy. I can be lazy in my marriage. When we first started dating, it was easy to pursue Devin. But as the years went on and as we are now married, its getting easier and easier to simply live in the same house… Continue reading A Better Wife in Pursuit

Jesus in the Street, Freak in the Sheets: how Song of Solomon is making me a better wife

I’ve been reading through my bible starting in the old Testament. As Ecclesiastes came to a close and Song of Solomon came up, I determined I was going to see what God’s heart is in this obscene book. I read through looking up in my notes all the oddities but it still seemed way past… Continue reading Jesus in the Street, Freak in the Sheets: how Song of Solomon is making me a better wife

Radical Love

I secretly have always wanted to celebrate Valentine’s day. Maybe it’s my gender or my personality, but there’s something about taking a special day to express to the most important person in your life how deeply you love them. I love the idea of getting all dolled up, getting flowers and a hand written card,… Continue reading Radical Love

Radical Perfection

How quick are we to rise to our own defense yet slow to give love? As Christians, we should let God be our defense and love others without hesitation or condition. But I think most people have been hurt by someone who professes christianity yet fails to live it out in these aspects. In the… Continue reading Radical Perfection

Radical Commitment

Jesus tackles some difficult subjects in the Sermon on the Mount. This week’s blog highlights a section that is no exception. In fact, I prayed pretty hard on how to write this in the most palatable way possible as to not step on any toes. But I believe Jesus preached this sermon in the order… Continue reading Radical Commitment

“If I were to take spoons and pluck your eyes out, it’d be more embarrassing and uncomfortable than painful because your eyeballs would be dangling out of their sockets by strands.” The things teenage brothers say to their 5 year old little sister to scare them for eternity… For some reason, perhaps the scaring, these… Continue reading Radical

I Took Back What He Stole From Me

How many Christians out there feel broken? How many of you are discouraged by the situations around you? How many daily sit face to face, knee to knee, toe to toe with their past and all the guilt and shame it brings? How many feel like they’re living life, but not to the fullest? I… Continue reading I Took Back What He Stole From Me

Who am I?

I did a terrifying thing today. I told a group of church ladies my dream to be in ministry. Instantly after doing so I was overwhelmed with a disempowering question: Who are you, Rachel, to accomplish such a feat? After several years of being a prodigal then quietly dedicating my life to Christ, I go… Continue reading Who am I?
