About

rachel devault

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. (Mormons.) I LOVE my religion. It is my life! It brings me great peace and happiness.

I was an Army brat. Now I’m an Army wife.

We have three children—two sons, one daughter. They are incredible. This is clearly not an objective opinion, but it is a statement of fact, nonetheless.

My husband and I have been married for around 15 years. He makes me laugh wildly, trust better, work harder, love braver, and remember not to take myself too seriously.

We have two rescue dogs, Livvy Louise and Comet Montgomery. They make our life richer and happier.

I’m enthusiastic about lots of things, especially lists. Here’s a fairly random list of some things I love:

pie
