I learned that love conquers all. I learned that this life is but a vapor, no matter how much we desire it to last forever, without God being the central part of it. Thank you sharing this, and I will be sure to pass it along.

Even though she has gone to be with the Lord, her words portrayed here, and the love it took for her to do this against her physical odds, will last as long as there is written words, and a video to be displayed. Again, thank you.

I was very moved by this video as it showed a very devoted woman to God even in the midst of her terminal illness. As Rachel stated cancer does not define me but it is her personal relationship with Jesus Christ that does.


This video is definitely worth watching.

I can second that. Very moving. As you watch, realize that she is an otherwise very normal wife and mother who, like millions of others, faced the same fight, but who, unlike most, used her illness to bring a message of hope in Jesus to all who would hear. What I learned from watching it is that the more you are attached to this world and the worldly blessings God has seen fit to bestow on you, the harder it will be to face death if and when all of it is abruptly snatched away from you. The rules then are simple:
1. Obedience. Obedience. Obedience. "He who obeys My Words, it is he that loves Me".
2. Do NOT become attached to the blessings God has given you, whether a loving spouse, beautiful children, great parents and siblings, successful career, material blessings. Give thanks for them; appreciate them beyond words, but realize they can become distractions and can be taken from you in an instant if they start interfering with your #1 priority: your relationship with God and making HIM #1 in your life.
3. Come to understand that those Christians who have not been blessed with these distractions just might be the real ones who have been "blessed".
