Today I want to tell you the story of Pauline, one of the first residents of Mercy House. I also want to tell you about Fair Trade Friday, a new ministry of Mercy House and a fun way that YOU can help to change lives around the world.
For several years now I have been praying for Mercy House, a maternity home in Kenya for pregnant and teenage moms. The girls who are brought to Mercy House have all become pregnant as a result of rape or because of forced pr...

I like to keep my hands busy while resting in bed, and one of my favorite ways to do this is by crocheting. I was thrilled this spring when I found out that William was going to be Bluebeard in the Pirates musical at his school and that I would need to make his costume!

I am so thankful to have had some improvements in my energy levels lately. As soon I was able to sit up on the sofa again, I grabbed my craft supplies, and Adelaide and I made little hats!
Last year was a particularly difficult year for me health-wise. Recovering from my "crash" in the winter of 2014 has been a very slow process, but I am excited to say that I am finally making some progress! In the past two mo...

Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Heaven is an excellent resource. This little book will help you to dig into God’s Word to see what it teaches about Heaven, the New Earth, and eternity.

Our family enjoyed another year of Awana at our church. I was not able to attend at all this year, but I was able to help William and Adelaide with their verses at home each week. What a privilege to help them memorize God's Word!

My family is calling 2015 “The Year of Adventure.” We have known for a while that big changes were coming this year. We didn’t (and still don’t!) know what the near future holds for our family, but whatever comes, we are determined to enjoy the adventure!

I recently finished reading "Grace Leads," a unique devotional study. I have been doing this study for the past 5 weeks during my morning devotion time, and it was just what I needed on many of my tired and brain fogged days.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.

Story
Tagline
Living with dysautonomia. Filled with hope. Depending on grace.
Introduction
I’m Rachel, a wife, a mother, and a sinner saved by grace. I like coffee, flowers, the color purple, and painted toenails. I have never reached my chocolate threshold seriously think I may not have one. I have dysautonomia; it’s a chronic invisible illness, and it makes life challenging. I am learning to take life one day at a time, to rely on Christ’s strength, and to rest in God’s grace. Despite the difficulties I face, I am very blessed. God has given me a loving family and blessings beyond what I deserve.
 
I am married to a wonderful man, Will, who faithfully cares for me every day. Being his wife, companion, and friend is such a gift! Will is in pastoral ministry. God has entrusted two precious children, William (9 years old) and Adelaide (5 years old), to our care. They brighten my days while simultaneously wearing me out! I wouldn’t trade them for anything.

Over the years my dysautonomia has continued to get worse, and daily life has become more and more challenging. Barring a miracle I will probably be disabled for the rest of my life. This is a great opportunity for me to learn to be content and trust the Lord! Even in the midst of suffering, God has a plan and a purpose. If living a life with a disabling form of dysautonomia will bring the most glory to God, then so be it. Suffering from dysautonomia for a few years on earth is a small sacrifice to make in light of all that Christ has done for me. It is worth following God and obeying Him at any cost.
 
I invite you to join me at my blog, Cranberry Tea Time, where I share about my life with dysautonomia and the hope and joy that I have despite the difficulties of living with a chronic illness.
