about me

I am Rachel J.
I am a wife, mamabird, and homemaker in her mid-twenties.  I am a writer, singer, poet, and pianist.  I am a lover of the simple, natural, and beautiful.  I am a daughter and sister.  I am imperfect, learning, and growing.  I am a Christian.
I am married to Andrew (since May 2012!), who is a clever (and hilarious) man, gifted musician, bible school graduate, worship leader, carpenter, and loving husband and daddy.  He is my best friend.  We both love ministry, music, laughing, talking, movies, God, and each other.  We are excited to be growing a family together We have one dear baby, Promise, in heaven, a precious daughter, Serenity Faye (aka Rennie, Renniebird) born in August of 2015 (you can read her birth story here), and another sweet girl, Haven Rose, due June 2018! 

  • I am a daydreamer.  I am a reader and thinker who also enjoys movies and those few fantastic TV shows.  I drink my coffee black and my tea with honey.  I find windblown hair most becoming.  I love big windows, sunbeams, rainfall, starlight, and thunderstorms.  I am a joy-seeker and anxiety/depression-wrestler.  I enjoy many types of music.  I believe in a minimal-ish lifestyle (in other words, I'm a "cozy minimalist").  I am a born and bred Hoosier who has lived in Utah (my hubby's home state) for a few years.  We are currently back in my beloved Indiana, hoping to settle down and raise our family here.

I am a free-flyer.  I feel deeply.  I'm an outgoing introvert.  I am weird, nerdy, honest, random, saved, and blessed.
So welcome.  Welcome to my little corner.  I hope you enjoy your stay!
