The Upbeat Offbeat Humor of Rachael Phillips

On Friday, June 14 of 2019 The Marshall County Museum Historic Crossroads Center opened up its doors and welcomed it’s former Plymouth resident and Erma Bombeck Global Award winner, Rachael Phillips. Rachael first began her unplanned writing career that became very successful as she began creating Christian articles as her church music director whenever her secretary demanded them. These articles were then sent off to South Bend Tribune to become her church newsletter. Rachael attended Bethel, Indiana to study English Language. Through this, her career grew and expanded throughout the state. Both Rachael and her work are greatly known for their upbeat, offbeat humor “that embraces the extraordinary ordinary” as Rachael would say. In fact, that is where her blog title came from, in this blog she hosts virtual Coffee Corners and OMG Prayers, if you would like to keep up with Rachael visit her Facebook page here or if you would rather visit her blog click here. Throughout her long career, Rachael has won a large amount of awards and recognitions. She has published thirteen novels, three novellas, more than seven hundred articles, columns devotions, stories, and four biographies.

As she’s made all of these accomplishments Rachael has had a very special man by her side, her high school sweetheart. Who has been her husband for forty-four years, Dr. Steve Phillips. Both Mr. Phillips and his wife Rachael have been teaching at Taylor University preparing and helping students grow professionally as well as hoping to inspire others to go after their dreams. Plymouth, Indiana community was pleased to host and welcome back such a talented woman. Thank you Rachael Phillips for sharing “A Writer’s Journey” with your community, we wish you nothing but the best.
