    I have loved seeing your journey through this, Rachel, and your courage and determination to get to the top of this. You have SUCH a way with words and I know for a fact you have encouraged SO many people by sharing your story, I’m pretty sure I dont have a one favorite post because they all speak volumes! <3 I love your spirit, sweet girl, and I cant wait to see what God does through you!

  2. Emily says:

    Im a friend of Rachael’s and can’t wait to check out your book! I am a nurse practitioner who works with kids with chronic illness. But I also have been struggling with chronic pain ever since breaking my back 7.5 years ago.

  3. ahhh, Rachel, i am so excited to see where the Lord takes you with this project, and i am so proud of where you’ve come, and what you have done so far! <3 (and my favorite post – or at least, one of them – is the one with you and Paul. so sweet. and truthfully, i love them all. your beautiful photos, heartfelt and raw words, and your passion for God all combine into a mirage of true beauty.)

  4. Elizabeth says:

    Can’t wait to see the impact of this book. I have loved following your journey via Facebook. One of the posts I liked (there are so many, how was I supposed to choose??) was about finding the right medication for your depression and how difficult it was for you. I can’t imagine having to deal with the side effects… but as always, you are brave! I love you, Rachel, and I can’t wait for the release of your book.

  5. Shyla says:

    Allison, I applaud your steps in sharing the difficult realities of living with a chronic illness. I pray that it serves to generate greater sensitivity and consideration in the world towards others. You never do know what that other person might be going through or living with, so it is a step in the right direction to allow for the unknowns. God bless, Shyla

  6. Charise says:

    I love your raw honesty. I am not sure which of your posts is my fave but I loved the one about your stepdad and the role he has played in your life. It was so beautiful.

  7. Kathy DeFilippo says:

    The post about your book launch is my favorite. Well done. This book is a gift of encouragement and insight for both the person suffering from chronic illness and their families.

  8. Sarah says:

    And my favorite post would probably have to be the one where you talked about depression, how that and a chronic illness can go hand in hand. I have fought battles with depression and it was nice to see someone be able to relate and also share about it with others.

  9. Sarah says:

    I’m glad to hear that you’re beginning to see changes, Rachel. I’m so proud of you as a person and what I’ve seen you accomplish. πŸ™‚ You’ve come really far and I know it’s been a battle. I’m praying this book will help impact people’s’ lives and give a better understanding of chronic illness to many.

    oh my goodness! it’s almost here! I’m so so proud of you.
    and as for my favorite TRCI post, it would probably be the one with you and Paul or the one when you were talking about how weather effects you, that photos is so soulful. πŸ™‚
