Rachel G. Hackenberg is an author, speaker, ordained minister, and soccer mom. Her book, Denial Is My Spiritual Practice (and Other Failures of Faith) with Martha Spong, searches for faith through life’s trials.

A Goodreads reviewer describes Denial as: “Water and deep nourishment to my soul. In so many ways. At so many levels. Their beautiful, artful writing of the most vulnerable areas was so life-giving.” Read an excerpt of the book, “I let the Holy Spirit see my dirty laundry,” at The Christian Century.

Rachel’s popular devotional Writing to God introduces the spiritual discipline of prayer-writing. For young readers, Writing to God: Kids’ Edition offers simple prayer ideas to encourage kids to talk with God about everyday life in everyday language.
