A Little About Me

Welcome to myheartsmission- so glad you stopped by to visit.  My name is Rachel, I am a SAHM (Stay at Home Mom) of two precious children and a Golden Retriever.

My husband and I met almost twelve years ago and have been married for 11 years.  For more about Him, please see my post Why I Love My Husband.

I am a cracked pot, praying that the light of Christ might shine through this broken vessel.

I am a humbled Mama who sees daily how much I need the love and forgiveness of Christ- and I hunger for Him to walk with me.

Sometimes I get led astray- I fall into bad habits, discouragement, shame and doubt- but by the grace of our Savior, he continues to beckon me from his Word and slowly open my eyes and draw my gaze back to Him.

I cling to hope.

1 Corinthians 13:12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known.

I want to abide in Him and yield to the work of his Holy Spirit in me.

I love God’s Word and desire to learn it- to hide it in my heart- and in the hearts of my children.

I am passionately pro-life (see My Heart Ache).

I pray that you may be encouraged- that you may catch a glimpse of God here- and how precious you are in His sight.  How He longs to draw near to you, and to offer you a love like you have never known.

Please feel free to e-mail me with prayer requests- I will be faithful to keep them confidential.

For more about me read My Testimony.

Psalm 62:1-2, 5-8

For God alone my soul waits in silence;
    from him comes my salvation.
2 He alone is my rock and my salvation,
    my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.

For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
    for my hope is from him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation,
    my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
On God rests my salvation and my glory;
    my mighty rock, my refuge is God.

8 Trust in him at all times, O people;
    pour out your heart before him;
    God is a refuge for us.

    Your web site or is it a blog is truly wonderful
    Thank you I am going to put it on my favorates.
    Thanks again. and God Bless!

  2. Jennifer says:

    How awesome you and your site truly are. How sad is it that in the “other world” I google “how to lift your husband” and the majority of the sites refer to bodybuilding sites. WOW!
    In this day and age it is all too easy to think of ourselves and the grass being greener, putting ourselves first……. It’ s nice to hear of someone else like minded who is devoted to “lifting up marriages, spouses and wife’s”. God bless you!

    • Rachel says:

      Yes, Jennifer, I agree. Thinking of ourselves and living in a state of discontentment- always wanting more- are two earmarks of our culture. Only by God’s grace can we live in newness of life. I am so glad you stopped by. God bless you.

    Just ran across your blog, and I cannot wait to look through it some more. I love that you have requested people to send you prayer requests (and the promised confidentiality). What a wonderful way to reach out to others!

      Tia, so glad you came by too! Prayer is powerful, and a way that we can serve and love each other no matter how close or far we may live physically. God bless you.

    Thank-you for My Heart’s Mission. Enjoyed all.
    I have been seeking more teaching of the Bible and have been taking it and breaking it down by book and verse. I have been using several websites that are a great help for me. I Thank God everyday for all my Blessings and to keep my heart open and learning. Bless you and your family.

    Hi Rachel,
    Tonight I Goggled prayers for loss of faith and your website was the first one that came up. Although I am 37 and have I’ve been a Christian my whole live and was rebaptised at 14 I’ve really been struggling with my faith. Even though I’m still faithfully attending services I feel so torn when I’m sitting in church, I just lost faith in people and the whole concept of religion. Anyways, thank you, for putting yourself out there and wanting to help others.

    • Rachel says:

      I am so glad that the Lord brought you here, and I pray that He will continue to encourage your faith as you seek Him. Yes, we lose faith in people- I can relate- but God never fails us. In His word I have found comfort for my weary, discouraged, depressed, and beaten soul. He has brought peace, comfort, and strength for what I face each day. I believe with all my heart that no one can love us like Jesus. :)
      Praying for you. God bless you.

  11. Dawn says:

    Thank you, I appreciate your prayer and encouragement.

  12. I appreciate your love for the Lord. I have seen the body of Christ cling to a political party more than clinging to Christ. God has reminded me that our job here on earth is to reflect Christ to the world. To make what is Gods priority our priority… which is obviously the 1st Commandment to love God snd our neighbor.
    Blessings!
    Jenny

    Dear Rachel,
    I am returning to your blog after several years of blogging on WordPress. I included your post Waiting on God as a related article on my post Waiting is Not a Game in 2012. Not following many other blogs then, because of Jerry’s amputation, now I relate to many in the WordPress Christian community.
    I remember that you quoted Andrew Murray in your post. Last year I began publishing some of my books after writing twenty-five years. A Broad Review of Andrew Murray’s Humility was one of the seven. I, like you, have benefited much from his books. Humility is one that I continue to study, and in 2014 shared this review of how humility has worked in my life on my blog. If you are interested in reading, I would be glad to send you a PDF copy.
    I have enjoyed reading some of your posts during this visit, and will be back to read more. I am blessed to see how the Lord has been working in your heart and life these past years. Are you still in Ga.? Where? We live in Buford, northeast of Atlanta.
    I pray the Lord’s blessings for your ministry to your family and others. ~ Fran

      Dear Fran,

      Thank you for sharing this memory from so many years ago. I just got done reading Humility again; it is a book that blesses and challenges me with each reading. We are now in TN, south of Nashville. My husband’s job changed so we have been here for three years this summer. The change has stretched us, and it has been good. May God bless your ministry as well. I will try to stop by and see you too. I am not blogging as often as I used to- this season has demanded greater attention to my children and other duties- but I decided (and my husband encouraged me) to keep this blog and try to just write a few times a year. There is something therapeutic about the process, and I hope as I send it out across the internet, that God might use it to reach and encourage one of my brothers or sisters. :)
