Are you looking for a new Bible study to start the year off right? The Woman at the Well, written by Rachel Tucker, just might be what you are looking for.
While I have not had the opportunity to work through this Bible study just yet, I did get to know the author a little better through our interview. Watch the video clip and enjoy the interview below.
Let’s Chat with Rachel:
Do you snack while writing?
No, I like to be fasting while writing. Fasting is a spiritual discipline I have really mastered this past year. The closeness I feel with Jesus and it really allows the Holy Spirit to take over. You are fueled by the Holy Spirit, something eternal, vs. food, which perishes. I desire to hunger more for HIM.
How do you find the time to do all you do and be a Wife and a Mom?
That one is easy. It is something I teach to other’s as well. When you have your priorities straight, everything else falls into place. I wake up early, 5 am, to spend time with Jesus and in the word of God, putting on my armor to face all the darts my adversary will throw at me! Then my husband comes next, then my kids, then everything else. This is God’s design. Women think it’s the right thing to do when they put their kids before their husband, but actually, it is the wrong thing to do. It takes faith. But, speaking from experience, you will be blessed for your obedience when you do this.
What is your favorite travel spot?
Well, I’m not sure it’s considered a “spot”, but I love to go on cruises with my husband and 4 kids. We have a blast! it is way more fun going with our kids, then just my husband and myself!! Kids spell love TIME, and they will never forget these magic moments. Ask your kid what they got for Christmas last year, I bet they don’t remember! But, when you spend the money on making magic moments, they last a life time! Best investment ever!
Do you have another profession other than writing?
Yes, my husband I run a large nutritional company (direct sales) from home. We also own an Anytime Fitness, and I have my ministry. I am a former fitness trainer/nutritionist and former fitness competitor. I did that while having 4 kids. It was my “hobby” and how I stayed in shape! And, it was a check mark on my bucket list!
How long have you been writing?
This is actually my third book. My first book was an ebook entitled, “Secure your own mask before assisting others”, and my second book was a 30 day daily devotional “How Jesus and Yoga changed my life.” So, it has been about 5 years since I wrote my first book.
Thank you Rachel for the peek into your daily life. You are an encouragement to the rest of us. Keep reading because we have a giveaway and some information about the book below.

About the Author
Rachel was born in Dayton Ohio to a already large family of 5. She was the baby of the family, and literally about killed her Mother on her entrance into the world. Rachel was the 5th child to a school teacher and truck driver and soon found herself as a child of a single Mom of 5 who was forced to work 3 jobs to support her children. So Rachel is no stranger to seeing and living what it means to be a virtuous woman, as she watched her Mother do it, and continue to do it. Rachel is a devoted wife, Mother of 4 and Founder of Women at the Well Ministries. She is an author and currently writing her first in-depth Bible Study. She has been the keynote speaker at Mother’s of Israel conference, and several of her local church’s women’s events.
Her passion is studying scripture and then teaching those lessons to others, with the goal that they will then turn around and pay it forward. Her #each one #teach one philosophy is her mission. She is passionate about helping women by giving them tools to help them break strong holds so they can pursue whatever the Lord has for them. So, training them up for the call! That is what spurred her ministry.
She knows that God didn’t create women to just sit around and get pedicures and swap recipes and tackle the dust bunnies everyday, but to be side by side with the men in fighting the war against evil and taking as many people to heaven with them as possible.
She now does life with her best friend, her husband Curt and will tell you, her children are the best kids on the earth. They love to do Bible studies together and love traveling with their family.
If she isn’t at home with her family, you will find her checking something off her bucket list! Her biggest so far would be competing in figure competitions, competing at the Arnold class in fitness, being in a beauty pageant representing her county as Mrs. Miami County in the Mrs. Ohio America pageant, and authoring a 30 day bible study devotional. And, she is only getting started.
She loves to weave her own personal stories in with her message, because she believes she is living her calling day by day, and sometimes it gets pretty funny!
