Hey! I’m Rachel! I go to a private Christian school, and I have been since kindergarten. I love to hang out with my friends, play my piano, and I LOVE to paint!♥

This year has really been very difficult for my mom and me. Five years ago my grandma was diagnosed with dementia and she has gotten way worse. My mom is so upset right now. My grandpa is trying so hard to make her better, but she’s not ever gonna get better. I have really felt alone and depressed this year. I don’t get why this had to happen to her! Why her??? She was such a great Christian woman I feel guilty, like I deserve it not her…

I have been a Christian since I was a little girl and never really doubted or ignored God. But this year I have gotten way stronger and have prayed way harder and more. My belief in God, leads me to believe that God put this in our lives for some reason that He only knows. Reading my bible has encouraged me and I could never have made it through this difficult time without my God. I really believe that God wanted me to give it all to him so that he could protect me and guide me through my hard time.

I know not everyone believes, but if you do, try to remember that God loves you and made you, he is always with you and will never leave you…he loves you sooo much!♥ Remembering this has really helped me.

This is my new life verse now : Isaiah 40:31 Read it and hide his word in your ear…it will help you through this time.
