Singer. Songwriter. Speaker.


I love Jesus, good conversation, strong coffee, and helping people have light-bulb moments with God through music, speaking, and writing.

I live in Nashville, TN with my husband Derek, our neurotic cat, and our lazy & lovable dog, Joey Smiley Wiggle Socks.

For the last 15 years, I have struggled with chronic illness.  In high school I played three varsity sports and was a busy kinda gal. But shortly after I graduated, an unknown illness crept into my body, and it's hung out there ever since.  Through this struggle of chronic fatigue, migraines, body ache, and stomach pain - I have learned so much about faith and grace.  In fact, God has taken center stage in my life.  My aching body is a daily reminder that I get the divine opportunity to trust God one day at a time. Mercies somehow meet me every morning.  I know my pain has not gone unnoticed.  And neither has yours.  We all have a unique story.  The one I am living is probably not the one I would have chosen for myself, but call me crazy, I'm grateful for it.  It's been quite a #Detour. But the brokenness of this world pushes me toward the unbroken Healer.  And that is an undeniably good thing.


What's YOUR story?  What's YOUR #Detour? Drop me a line and let me know!

(by Rachel Barrentine) 

Dear Jesus,

For the glory of Your name,

Open my eyes to see what You have prepared

and divinely highlighted for me today.

Open my ears to hear Your whispers,

Your direction, and Your Word.

Open my mind to think Your thoughts,

for they are higher than mine.

Open my heart to greater surrender

and deeper dependence.

Open my hands to receive and take hold of

every spiritual blessing and every promise

You have died for, purchased, and granted to me.

Move my feet to go and be active where You lead,

confidently trusting that You will guide me

one step, one moment, one breath at a time. 




"I Run To You" Written by Rachel Barrentine & Matthew Reed
