Hey There! I’m Rachel Clair!

I live in Chicago with my lovely husband, Dan, and I’m so grateful you’ve decided to visit my website.

You’ll notice a few things on this site. First, I like to write. I’ve always written and I really don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t. I primarily write about my faith and the intersection it takes with creativity. We serve a creative God, and for that I am grateful. Creativity has been a big part of my redemption story. Read the blog long enough, and you’ll probably find out more.

Second, I love Chicago! If you ever need a recommendation, please reach out. I LOVE telling people about all the fun things there are to do here and why this city is so great. Those of you who are lucky enough to subscribe to my monthly email letter get to hear about one of my favorite Chicago things each month. It’s so fun to share!

Third, this website is a little bit undone. For whatever reason I just don’t enjoy working on my website so it’s taking forever for me to complete. So, I’m sorry (especially to those of you who really appreciate good design aesthetics!).

And fourth, I teach art classes occasionally! This has been the most unexpected of things that I’ve done in my life and I’m really excited to see where it goes. Six years ago I started working/serving in children’s ministry and through that, I became familiar with a concept called process art. I’m in the process of writing a blog post about what exactly that means so just hold tight, and I’ll tell you more.

I’m passionate about sharing my story and helping people of all ages creatively connect to God. It is my hope that as you explore this website you will find inspiration and deeper call to creativity and creative thinking across all aspects of your life. Thanks again for visiting!

Other fun facts about me!

I currently work as a content writer for World Relief.

I bake a mean chocolate chip cookie and have been known to make the best grilled cheese you’ll ever eat.

I’m gluten free, but have trouble resisting chick-fil-a, soft pretzels, and corn dogs (I have an inexplicable love for corn dogs). the heartburn and upset stomach is somehow always worth it.

I grew up in Tennessee, but sadly, the accent is long gone.

I moved to Chicago in 2012 just because I wanted to.

I met my husband at church (how sweet) and we got married in 2015.

I’m a 4 on the enneagram with a VERY strong 3 wing.

My husband and I are really good at vacation and traveling with him is probably my favorite thing in the world to do. If you have money and would like to pay us to travel and make insta stories about it we will gladly go anywhere you want!

Current favorite podcasts are: Armchair Expert, Discipleshift, Pantsuit Politics That Sounds Fun with Annie F. Downs, and The Next Right Thing. Check ‘em out!

I love coffee shops. But I’m a writer, so what did you expect?
