Rebekah Pierce grew up as the loud, outspoken child of quiet, reserved parents. She has never been one to shy away from a conversation, controversial or otherwise, and enjoys listening to and learning about different opinions. It took her awhile to figure out that she could learn more by listening than by talking and that being right is not always the most favorable outcome. As she has aged, hopefully she has gained a modicum of wisdom that will someday be of use to someone; otherwise, she sees herself with a second career writing greeting cards for Hallmark. Rebekah fancies herself to be a defender of social justice around the world and will work tirelessly to convince the world that “All We Need is Love”… and maybe a Diet Coke. In all seriousness, she values her commitment to raising strong, principled and kind humans and is the mother to four, wonderful children (and one most excellent son-in-law.) She was lucky enough to meet the love of her life in high school and despite the fact that they fully recognize how boring they have become in their maturing years, the life they’ve built and the journey they are on is one that she always has a “go-bag” packed for. The world is a big place and we are small people…. but even small people can bring about big change.
