A Little Bit About Me

I thought it might be a good idea to introduce myself to you. There is a lot I could tell you, but I thought I would keep it short. It’s best if you take me in small doses anyway. (That’s a joke. It’s okay to laugh.)

  • My name is Raelyn Pracht (like Procter and Gamble) and I am about to turn 50 in March. You would think I would be sad, but I am not. My 40’s have been the most difficult decade, so I am ready for a new chapter!
  • I love Jesus! and my husband, daughter and my dog and your dog, if you have one.
    • I currently live in Texas, but I want to win the lottery and move to Germany or Italy.
    • It took me 28 years to get my Bachelor’s Degree, but I finally finished in 2018. My journey took me to two community colleges, a year at George Mason University, a year at Wright State University, a semester at Virginia Commonwealth University, and finally, finishing my degree in Marketing Management at Western Governor’s University (WGU). Side note: my favorite team is the Ohio State Buckeyes because Ohio is where I really consider myself from.
    • I have the blessing of working for a Christian organization as a Marketing Specialist. In January, I will have been there 11 years!
    • I started my writing career with writing Advent and Lent Devotionals for my church. For a long time, God had me on the path of writing devotions, but has since brought me into different genres that have challenged me and helped me grow as a writer.
    • My published titles include:

    -Restoration (Haiku) https://whispersandechoesmag.home.blog/tag/raelyn-pracht/

    -Falling Leaves, Warm Memories (Short Story Contest Winner)

    -Restoration of the Baker Hotel (Non-Fiction) https://roadtrippers.com/magazine/baker-hotel-mineral-wells-texas/

    -Be Still and Notice (Tales from the Next Step Community) https://www.amazon.com/Be-Still-Notice-Tales-Community/dp/B09K281YWN

    -Take My Moments and My Days (Tales from the Next Step Community)https://www.amazon.com/Take-My-Moments-Days-Community/dp/B0BKS5QHBB

    • I am currently working on my first ever Christian fiction book. This story was prompted by God and He more than nudged me to write it. In fact, He pretty much shoved me ( in the most loving way possible )
    • When I am not working or writing I love to watch all types of movies, laugh way too hard at Mystery Science Theater episodes, read, do jigsaw puzzles and pretend I actually know what I am doing on my Cricut.
    • I am a Dunkin Donuts fanatic, am obsessed with “The Greatest Showman”, adore Snoopy, love music from the 20’s – 40’s with Nat King Cole being my favorite.
    • I love anything to do with Sherlock Holmes or Jack the Ripper.
    • My favorite classic authors are Sir Author Conan Doyle, Edgar Allan Poe, Jules Verne, Shakespeare and Lord Byron.
    • I love sports!
    • I have survived Melanoma four times and other skin cancers too many times to count. In fact, 2022 is the first year I haven’t had to have any surgery, praise the Lord!
    • My new dream in life is to become a minimalist.
    • Finally, I am a nerd. I love to make lists of practically everything.

    Tell me some things about you!
