My Story

A journey of faith through laughter and tears to inspire others to greater faith

Rachel Williams-Smith



n my book, Born Yesterday: The True Story of a Girl Born in the 20th Century but Raised in the 19th, I share my story of growing up in a truly isolated childhood due to religious extremism. Though I was born in 1965, my story could have easily been set in the 1800s – I wore long dresses and bonnets and lived with my family in isolation in the wilderness of Tennessee without modern conveniences including electricity, telephone, radio, television and indoor plumbing.

I share my story to nurture hope in people that transformation is within reach, no matter what the challenge and inspire them to not give up, to not lose hope, and to believe that new beginnings are possible.
