Author and Mommy Blogger: Becky Thompson

Today, RCW is a blog for those women, like me, who want to live their lives sold-out for Jesus. They want everything in their entire world to be overshadowed by His divine presence. They desire their children to be on fire for the Lord and not stray. They are willing to lay down their own lives for their husbands.
They are RADICAL in a country that insists on being mundane. These aren’t your run-of-the-mill Christians who are satisfied with Sunday service and a few good Christian self-help books, these are the women willing to get dirty for the cause.
