#ReinventYourself: Interview with Rachel Leigh
Here's a little note from Rachel: "I am Rachel Leigh from Tennessee. I value living in the Bible Belt and Southern Hospitality as much as I value multiculturalism and being one small part of a huge diverse body of believers, all united in Christ. I have a Masters level college education in Business and still consider my Fathers business of spreading the gospel of Christ my most important assignment. What lights me up is seeing the moment the Holy Spirit is invited in and first recognized by a new believer or the awe-inspiring world-shaking moments when a believer is given a new revelation of Gods glory. I love these “light bulb moments” and love to share my own. I just love that God chose such a humble creation as us to grow His Kingdom and to be His Kingdom. I’m a grateful daughter of the Most High King!" Find out more at https://www.facebook.com/WarriorAngelMinistries/
