Hi there, and welcome to Compositions for the King!
My name is Rachel, and I'm a sinner turned saint; saved by Jesus, and I'm not ashamed of His love for me! Without Him, I am nothing. He makes life worth living!
I am the oldest in a family of 10, which keeps life exciting! I love music, both listening to it and playing my piano and harp whenever I get a chance. I love life, I love to laugh. I love to make people happy. I love color, books, crisp fall days, fresh bread or cookies straight out of the oven, hand lettering, friends.
I competed in the National Bible Bee from 2011 to 2015, and by God's grace I qualified for the National competition twice.
I guess you could say I am also somewhat of a modern day abolitionist, as I can't stand to see horrific crimes such as abortion and human trafficking prevalent around the world, and even in my own state. I pray and wish to see these evil deeds brought to the light and discontinued.
Most importantly though, I want to use my one life to glorify the Lord in whatever avenue He calls me. God, being my Creator, is the only reason I am here in this world, and I know He has put me here for a reason. This life is so short, we must use it for Him!
Writing is a passion and a gift I believe God has given to me, and I want to use it for His glory and the benefit of others. That's why I named my blog Compositions for the King: I write for the King, and I write so that other citizens of His kingdom may hopefully be encouraged. I felt lead to create an avenue in which I can share my writing with the world. I post on a variety of topics and in different styles...from articles, to stories, to just thoughts about what the Lord is teaching me.
