In the playroom of the old farmhouse in which she grew up, 5-year-old Rebecca began her journey with Christ. During college, after a few difficult challenges, the childhood faith seemed to shrink prompting a search for something with a more sizable fit. After searching other religions and spending a couple years in doubtful questioning, the mercy of God reached down to meet her in unprecedented ways. In 2009, she rededicated her life to Christ. He had given her mercy to wander and grace to return. It is from her own personal questions and wilderness droughts, that RAW and The Prayer Crossing emerged—helping her gain solid footing on previously rocky terrain.
Rebecca is a certified Nuclear Medicine Technologist who carries a Master's Degree in Theological Studies. Although holding a "tent-maker" profession by day, she has an unrelenting fire in her bones to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to others through the power of written art. Rebecca's been active in her community by leading worship and spiritual formation activities. She was the keynote speaker at the Lovely Women's Conference and recently returned from a mission trip to Haiti. Although she firmly believes the mission field starts in the four corners of one's own home, her hope is to one day share the calling God has placed on her heart for His Kingdom to those beyond.
