Hi Friends! WELCOME!
For those of you that don’t know me, I’m Rachel!
I’m a Southern California native living in Paris, Texas with my husband, Cameron, and our sweet pup, Lucy. We’ve been married since July of 2014, and have been on quite the adventure since.
I cannot even begin to explain just how excited I am to be (re)launching this space! A new look, new content, new vision and new purpose, so you know that means we’re going to have a good time!
I have had a blog for several years now. *Rachel, I had no idea!* Don’t worry, you’re not alone.
Over the past few years, I’ve struggled greatly with the vision of this space, and have had a really difficult time getting it off of the ground. I have always loved sitting down and writing, letting my ideas come to life through words and pictures, but I was never confident enough in what I was sharing to make anything out of it. I was posting and sharing things that I didn’t feel much of a connection with; things that I thought a blogger was supposed to share. My heart wasn’t in any of it, and I gradually began to post less often, all the while questioning this call that I truly do believe in. Since day one I knew I was called to create this space, and, through this platform, connect with people, sharing Jesus with anyone who would listen, but I didn’t understand why it just never seemed to work out the way I had always envisioned. It wasn't until recently that I realized that I never once asked God what HE wanted this space to be. I was so excited and caught up in my own opinions and thoughts of what it should look like, that I took the call and ran with it, never bothering to stop and ask which direction I was supposed to run in. This has always been my happy place; my place to pour out my thoughts, revelations and life-moments, and to share things that I love with others. Now, however, instead of being a blog with no vision or motivation, we are a community with bold purpose, clear direction and a huge and exciting calling.
I’m extremely passionate about helping and supporting others in and through life, and even more passionate about loving them entirely, no matter what. This space gives me an incredible opportunity to do that, and share Jesus at the same time. It’s an opportunity for me to experience what the Lord is bringing to light in this season and share it with you, inviting you to join in and learn with me along the way.
So that is why you’re here! Welcome to the Happily Ever Ginger Launch!
Happily Ever Ginger is more than a blog - it's an interactive online ministry designed to cultivate community and bring people together as they grow in their relationship with the Lord. Our mission is to provide support, resources and tools for people to grow in their faith and walk in their calling and purpose in life. We promote purposeful relationships and encourage positive discussion and fellowship through our various groups, events and the Happily Ever Ginger Blog. Most importantly, we meet people just as God meets them – right where they are. No matter who you are or where you are in life, there’s a place for you here.
My dream is that everything that stems from Happily Ever Ginger helps you in some way; that it encourages you to be authentically YOU – the beautiful you God created you to be. I pray that it is a space of community and friendship; a place where people feel welcome, encouraged, and a part of something that means something. It is here where we will share lessons learned, revelations and adventures, life-moments, fun projects and worth-while words. May this space be one that motivates you to live your life the only way it was ever intended to be lived – nothing but loved!
