Rachel Greening is a University of Toronto graduate, wife, mother, and day-dreamer.
While Rachel enjoys all kinds of writing, poetry is her first love. Her debut children’s book If My Oak Tree Could Speak was inspired by the large oak tree in her former backyard. She captures the fascination of children as their minds wander and wonder, creating a world of their own in their imaginations. It is told through anapestic tetrameter and is filled with a myriad of questions to capture the curiosity of childhood and wonderment. If My Oak Tree Could Speak is stunningly illustrated by local talent and friend Janice Barber.
Rachel's other writing includes guest blogs for the websites Her View From Home, Motherly, and The Grit and Grace Project, etc., as well as articles for the Christian publications Just Between Us (Spring 2022) and Joyful Life (Winter 2022). She desires to encourage women in their walk with God and to embrace the path he has set before them. Samples of her writing are included under Writing Gallery.
You can find Rachel with a coffee in hand at her historic stone home in Campbellville, Ontario where she lives with her husband and three young children.
