Meet Raychel Chumley
So often I’m asked the question, “How do I…?” The blank is filled with handle stress better, find time for personal time, forgive someone who has hurt me, balance life, family, and career successfully, pick up the pieces after major life changes, and so many more. Real women with real struggles come to me each and every week looking for hope and answers. It’s my honor to walk beside them, encourage them, and equip them to overcome obstacles and live passionately and with purpose.
Maybe you are walking through an incredibly difficult season in your life and you don’t know what to do next. Or, maybe you are feeling stuck and you don’t know how to find hope and joy in the midst of every day living. Possibly, you are trying to juggle career and family and you feel like a failure. Let’s face it…you might be stressed, overwhelmed, unhappy, and just looking for something more.
It’s OK. You are not alone. We all struggle and sometimes as women we struggle even more because we refuse to slow down and ask for help. Getting help doesn’t make you weak, stupid, or a failure. It makes you an Overcomer!
I learned so many powerful lessons because of the struggles I’ve overcome in my life. These struggles have molded me into the strong woman I am today. God designed me to be an overcomer. He designed YOU that way too. It would be an honor to partner with you. If you are ready…so am I!
If I were a shoe…
A RED shoe. Flat, stiletto, wedge, flip flop…doesn’t matter just love red shoes!
My favorite color is…
Red and Black.
Favorite thing about my job…
Working with my best friend and watching women have the “Light Bulb Moments” when her life changes forever.
Favorite quote or Bible verse…
Proverbs 31:25 She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.
That’s like asking someone their favorite child! Here are a few of my favorites though: Sense & Sensibility, Anne of Green Gables, Dark Tower series, Wheel of Time series, Harry Potter series, and the Divergent series. I also loved the books The War of Art, Thou Shall Prosper, and Crucial Conversations.
How do you take your coffee?
What is the bravest thing you’ve ever done?
Said out loud, “I think I have Postpartum OCD.”
What is one useless fact no one would realize about you?
I can’t drive and talk at the same time. Well, I can. But we could end up ANYWHERE.
If you could have a super power what would it be?
