Show Notes

Rachel Snider has written and published 3 books. 

The genre is Christian historical fiction, which requires quite a bit of research to get the details right.

But in her storylines, Rachel weaves in painful and difficult topics, like sexual abuse and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Interestingly enough, Rachel began writing the story before she was ever diagnosed with PTSD and she's continued to write and develop the characters, even as she begins to cope with mental illness.

We Talk With Rachel About:

  • How on earth she has written and published three books, even with three young children.
  • Why she chooses to tackle tough topics like childhood sexual abuse in her Christian historical fiction novels.
  • What can happen when Rachel **doesn’t** feel emotionally safe inside her own home and how she and her sweet husband Kent are helping each other and their children set healthy emotional boundaries.
  • Plus, Rachel offers up some sage advice about fostering and adopting children.
