Interview: Rachelle Dekker, author of The Choosing

May 18, 2015

A lot of older siblings want to inspire their sisters and brothers --- to teach them to be kind human beings, to go after their goals and stick up for their beliefs.

But Rachelle Dekker went above and beyond --- she wrote an entire book (and soon-to-be series) to teach her sisters that “they are worth everything.”
