As a Christian, Republican, and out member of the LGBT community, it is no surprise that Rachel’s writing reflects the diversity that is so present within her everyday life.
Her blog offers a fiercely honest look at the struggles of LGBT people and highlights the inability of man to match Christ’s grace. It also provides a smart commentary on politics and current events through the lens of a “Jesus loving, Grand Ol’ Partying, Equality advocating… Millennial.”
