Whenever I leave the house, I hear the same sentence: “You have your hands full.” And depending on the day you may hear me say, “Yes, full of good things.”

Full of God. Motherhood. Life. Full of children and household needs, full of homeschooling and preschool pick ups. Full of words for little people, grown people, and all the people in between.

But friend, your life is full too. And the road is long, and sometimes dry, isn’t it? That’s when God’s Word is water for the soul. The Word in season lifts our faces and slips a hand in ours.

Jesus said to her, “Everyone who drinks of this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks of the water that I will give him will never be thirsty again. The water that I will give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”

The woman said to him, “Sir, give me this water, so that I will not be thirsty…” John 4:13-15

That’s the water we’re after, isn’t it? For the dry places of life? Day after day, water for the soul and hope for the road. If you long for that water welling up to eternal life, I write for you. I write to make you thirsty. To show you a bit of Himself and how He’s changed my life. So that you will be like that woman who opened her soul wide and just asked Him for water. Join me, and we can drink deep together.

And If you already have that water welling up in you, then I write for you too. I write to remind you to look up, drink deep and stead on. Join me, because the days are long and the journey short. And we’ll soon be Home.

So who am I? I live in Detroit, Michigan with my husband four little girls. I would describe myself to be a functional introvert. I am married to Joel (the true introvert) and my work is to raise our family and to return library books on time. I am doing the former, I rarely do the later. My passion is to write. I love well written sentences, the sun filtering through leaves, cooking new things, hearing “yes, mom”, strong coffee with cream and whatever season is next.Whoever you are, friend, make yourself at home. Pull up a chair and pour yourself a coffee. I’m so glad you’re here. Rachel
