Where’s the place for singles when it seems the church is filled with families? How do single adults fit in to the larger family of faith? Join Steph and guest Rachel Morton as they talk about singleness, the propensity to feel invisible, and the family that exists beyond what is visible.
Bio: Rachel Morton is a transplanted Texan living in Wisconsin. She is the oldest of nine children, the proud auntie of 5 nieces and nephews, and “bonus auntie” and godmother to her best friend’s little girls. She is an extroverted introvert who loves connecting with others through conversations over a cup of coffee. Rachel has worked for the LCMS as a DPM since July 2012 serving St. John’s West Bend as their Assistant Director of Worship. She also helps to oversee Women’s Ministry and their yearly Women’s Retreat. Her whole life would mean nothing, though, if she were not a baptized and dearly loved child of God. Her life’s mission is to help others see their lives through that lens, empowering them to both know and share the life-changing love of Jesus.

We believe that God is the author and sustainer of all life. We also know it can be hard to speak about the intrinsic value of life, health and the family when it feels like the world is trying to drown us out.
We’re right here beside you. In this podcast of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Life, Health and Family Ministries, we’re coming alongside one another as a community of Christ’s redeemed people. Together we’ll explore life, health and family issues in a way that honors our heavenly Father’s value of human life, serves our neighbor, shares the faith and connects us to others who are doing the same. Join us, so that together we can be friends for life.
