About This Site

Hello dear newcomer, I’m so happy you’ve stopped by 🙂

My name is Rachel, and I started this website with the hopes of sharing my heart with others who struggle with chronic illness (though you’re most welcome to stay no matter your circumstances!). Being a 23-year-old with a severe Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction Syndrome, I deeply understand that the trial of illness can often leave sufferers feeling misunderstood and disconnected. It is my hope to share the warm and tender encouragement of our loving God with you and offer you empathy through these times so you don’t have to feel alone. I would love not only to speak out to you through these posts, but to offer you a listening ear as your friend. I believe in the beauty of your heart and the potential of your dreams despite the agonizing ways pain can affect them. I hope you will feel warmly welcomed, accepted, and inspired to live out your unique purpose despite the overwhelming obstacles that your illness (or pain of any sort) has presented.

I look forward to our journey together, and consider myself blessed to have you along for the ride.

Praying peace to you,
