Hey there, I’m Rachel.
I help busy moms reclaim the joy in their lives by adding a simple, rest-filled family Sabbath to their week.
A few years ago, in the middle of a very exhausting season of life, I was introduced to a question that I couldn’t let go of:
“What could it mean for my life if I spent one day a week observing a Sabbath rest?”
I shared this question with my husband and together we implemented a weekly family practice of Sabbath. Soon, I had the answer to the question:
Physical rest. Soul Care. Stabilizing peace.
A return to my whole self.
Now, I teach other moms how to shift to a Sabbath-focused week and experience a renewed joy in their lives.
what others are saying
“I am a doer, so resting is hard because it can often feel frivolous. Rachel teaches how to “do” rest. And she makes it so simple! There is nothing frivolous or self-indulgent here. Only a life-giving practice that everyone needs.”
Jenn Uren, host of This Mom Knows Podcast
“Even after a few weeks of combining this journal with a consistent practicing of Sabbath, I noticed a huge difference in my life. I found myself feeling more rested, calmer, and more connected to God, my family, and myself.”
Emily Canfield, Blogger at Begin Again Mom
