Meet Rachel


My name is Rachel.

I’m a storyteller + follower of Jesus.

You can currently find me sipping on coffee while studying the afternoon away in the lovely city of Birmingham, Alabama.

Flowers are my love language, with words of affirmation being a close second.  I’m a huge fan of waking up to sunshine pouring in through my window and a firm believer that prayer is the most powerful way to start your day.

Chocolate chip cookies are my go-to dessert. Psalm 103 is my favorite psalm. And, for all of you enneagram people, I’m a 2! I’m also a huge fan of worship music. (no joke, I have a playlist with 24+ hours of worship music on Spotify).

But anyways, like I said, I’m a storyteller.

And my favorite story to tell is the one that changed my life: the good news of Jesus Christ!

Through this blog & my life, my goal is to share testimonies of God’s grace, love, and goodness experienced and encountered day by day.

My hope is that Greater Gaze will be a compilation of these testimonies and a place where Christ is constantly glorified and souls come to a saving knowledge of the Truth.

I hope you will join me on this journey of gaining a greater gaze on Jesus and rejoice with me as we declare the praises of Him who has called us out of darkness into His marvelous light.
