Interview with Rachel Zwayne - Becoming Joyful Mothers

Watch this full conversation on our YouTube channel.

Rachel Zwayne was born and raised in New Zealand. At the age of 14, her father’s ministry (Ray Comfort / Living Waters) relocated to Southern California, where she eventually met her husband and became the mother of five children. Rachel has been homeschooling for the past 21 years and finds great delight in encouraging other women in their role as mothers, wives, and homeschoolers. She has done this in her capacity as a leader and teacher of multiple women’s groups, and as a conference speaker. Rachel has been married to Emeal (“E.Z.”) for 25 years and they live in Southern California.
