My name is Rachel Dione W. and I was born early Sunday morning, July 8, 1973.    Two brothers and four sisters welcomed me into this world.  A year later my younger brother was born.  Due to illness, my oldest sister, Michelle, passed when I was 3 months old.  My father had the priviledge of naming me "Rachel," a beautiful woman from the bible.

Thanks for taking the time to read all about "me."   You don`t know how much this means to me.    GOD bless you and may you follow the path HE has already laid for YOU !

(sometimes I can be very sentimental)
Again, THANKS!

The music I`m feeling now:   Anything Gospel! Don`t get me wrong, I love other music and artists!

A book I`d recommend: The New Standard BIBLE!

Favorite movies out right now: The CORE, Harry Potter, BrownSuga, Big Momas House, The Klumps, Pitch Black, The Green Mile, Patch Adams, Ray & Red Planet.

Nicknames:  Rachel the Racoon (leadership camp), Ray-Ray or Ray (friends) & Raisin (can't remember where)!

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!"
Other scriptures:
"In all thy getting, get understanding!"

Quotes I`ve heard others say:  If you like it, I love it!
               If you've got favor with God, you can get a favor from God!
Some of my heroes:  mother, father, aunt, teachers, & coaches...

A recent accomplishment:
Finished school. Was appointed Young Adult President and Director at church.  Presently serving as Youth Director, 2003.

One of MANY reasonS my friends like me: silly wit, wisdom and outgoing personality..

Last but not least:
I am a Middle School Mathematics teacher!  I love working with young people.  I remember a tremendous influence by my teachers at all grade levels.  My ultimate plan is to become a principal in the St. Louis Public School system.
My mom and dad are both ministers.  My dad and his immediate family have all gone to be with The Heavenly Father. I have 1 aunt, 1 uncle(my aunt recently married) 7 nephews (ages 1-17) & finally, one Niece!  My mom has two beautiful parents. My grandfather recently passed.  I love you POPA!  I love them all so much!

Growing up, I loved having lots of brothers and sisters, and boy did we stay in trouble.   My mom is still a great force in my life.  She has taught me faith and it is the glue that keeps our family together.  My family did not have a lot of money growing up, but we did have lots of love and bible teachin, which shaped me into the womyn I am today.  I know that GOD is not through with me yet!

I accepted my call to the ministry this summer and have given my first sermon.  It was truly a great experience.  I know I am on the right track with my relationship with God.   I am blessed to have accomplished so many things and I know that GOD is my KEEPER!  I try to study his word daily so that HE will show me the right path to take in this life. 

In Memory:
I thank GOD for the ppl I never had the chance to meet but I know I`ll see them in HEAVEN! 

I am also blessed to be surrounded by so many pple who LOVE me, especially my church family!  Therefore, LOVE is my motivation in LIFE!

I thank GOD for my gifts--singing, sports, art, wisdom and leadership! 

Giving back:
I hope to touch many young lives as a teacher and as a principal.  Young adolescents are facing tough times--remember 6-8th grade.  How did you feel about yourself?
