Rachel Goode has many passions. Among them are adoption advocacy, orphan care, studying and teaching the Bible, and eating sugary candies. Rachel especially hopes to encourage women suffering through difficult waiting periods… especially women waiting to become mothers, whether because of infertility or long adoption processes. Scripture shows that God’s people have always been a waiting people. There is purpose behind the pain (James 1:2-4), and God makes beauty from ashes (Isaiah 61:3).
Rachel lives in Alabama with her pastor husband and two beautiful girls, ages four (biological) and two (adopted from Uganda). She writes obsessively and teaches Bibles studies. Find her blogging about faith, motherhood, adoption, Jesus, and racial harmony at www.heirswithchrist.com.
