About Me

Bio: Rachael grew up an “Army brat” and moved all over the world with her family like a tumbleweed. She danced her way through life and at 16, landed herself in New York City on a scholarship. She planned to attend NYU’s TISCH School of the Arts until an eating disorder almost took her life. God had better plans for her and though she fell 98 times, she stood up 99. She has her Master’s degree in Social Work and works full time as a Therapist in the addiction field. 
Rachael swore she’d never marry military and learned the hard way never to say never since she did it not once, but twice! She is now the proud single mama of three wild angels: identical twin 5 year olds and an almost 3 year old. She spends her “spare time” writing, helping others, loving on her boys, and enjoying her crazy, messy, beautiful life. Stick around and join her for the ride!

  3. I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  6. Wow, I really relate to your story! I am an about to be single mom to three boys, ages 3, 2, and 9 months. I am originally from NYC, currently living in Seattle. I am a recovering addict so I completely understand your struggles. You sound like you are handling it well. It’s so chaotic all the time!!

  7. I just commented on another page with your blog titled, “one mothers plea.” Didn’t realize I wasn’t on your actual page. Your story hits so close to home. I was married to a military man as well and God has also been my rock during all the trying times. This is what I wrote over there since I don’t know if you will see it.
    Rachael, this piece makes me feel like you are describing my life/thoughts. Every last word. I tell people so often how sad I am, not only for our 3 kids, but their dad. He can’t possibly understand what he is missing. And yes, he always pretends life is great and he’s got women and freedom all the while suggesting that those things must be my priority as well. How can he not see what has happened and what he has lost out on and will continue to lose out on? I always feel like no can understand when I say I am sad for him and they must assume I’m angry and bitter because of all he has done and the way he has abandoned his children. But it is the truth because this is not what I ever envisioned happening when we got married and started a family together.
    I would love to talk to you, but have never commented on a stranger’s blog/page, so I don’t know if that is weird.
    Thank you for your words and I will be sharing this with my family and friends so they might have an inside look into what happens as a result of a failed marriage with an alcoholic and young children involved.

  8. I’ve been following your blog off and on for a few months now. I am not of the same faith but I feel a connection to you through motherhood. I just wanted to tell you that I am rooting for you and your boys. I also struggle with knowing the right time to put my heart out there. Anyways, you’ve got a friend out here in cyberspace. I hope you are well.

  11. I enjoyed reading your blog. It’s hard to find stuff to relate to being a single dad (3yo daughter and 2yo son). I can at least relate to a lot of what you wrote. Thank you and keep it up!

    • Oh man I’m sorry that’s the situation you’re in but so glad you’ve landed here and have found some comfort or things you can relate to. It’s nice to have some dads around here too because we can all relate to each other and support each other through the process and journey of life. Hope you stick around!

  13. I have never commented on someone’s blog before, I liked us. I guess I just need to tell you that you are life-saving. I truthfully cannot explain how much your words mean in the lives of women out there in this world that are going through the same things you have gone through. I pour over your readings with such intensity, because they deserve such thought and attention. They are truthfully beautiful. Thank you for being vulnerable and real and thought-provoking. We are blessed to read your words.

  14. I’m the same age as you. My kids are the same age as yours, though opposite — my identical twins boys are 2 and my oldest boy is 3 1/2. I’m in the middle of a divorce. I have to admit I haven’t actually read your blog yet — I was just doing a little research, thinking of writing my own. The similarities are too striking…it’s uncanny. You’ll have my email, I assume, if you feel like getting in touch — how many of us can there possibly be?

  15. I read your your article about finding your missing piece. I started to cry. I am alone. No girlfriend no friends. I don’t drive. I have epilepsy. All I have is my computer. There must be a reason I am here. I have been in five situations were God could have taken me. But I am still here. I pray to God to help me fill that void in my life. I just don’t want to die alone.

    I was wondering if maybe you would be interested in posting an article we made. After going through your site we came up with: “20 Useful Tips for Single Parents Traveling with Young Children”. We made the list after doing some research and we were able to come up with a comprehensive list with the most recent and updated information on single parent travel. I believe it is a good match for your site and readers.
