You may have already met Rachel Yeo Burtt by emailing in to the Sacred Ordinary Days inbox. In fact, Gayle commented on Rachel's introduction post "Rachel sent me the SWEETEST email after I shared my birthday plans for my BFF! 💗." And, of course, we weren't surprised at all. Rachel joined the team in October 2019 and we are beyond thrilled to have her.
Rachel says, “Coming on board as the Executive Assistant for Sacred Ordinary Days has been a truly exciting opportunity for me...Spiritual formation has been revolutionary in my journey and rooted me through many, many transitions. I'm proud to be a part of this team that creates such amazing tools to that end!”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Among the many other qualities and skills that make her a wonderful fit, Rachel also brings with her an MA in Theological Studies from Regent College in Vancouver. We are grateful for her serendipitous move to Waco that led us to connect when we opened applications.

✈️Unpopular Opinion: Every meal should be family-style. On one of our first few dates, I inadvertently burst into tears at a restaurant when my now-husband said "no thanks" to my request to share meals. He learned that lesson quickly. #cultureclash
