IMG_5829Hey there! My name is Rebekah Edwards, and I am thrilled to have you here at Capture Hope.

I’m a 27-year-old writer, photographer, worship leader, and online media specialist in Franklin, TN. I graduated from the amazing Trevecca Nazarene University in May 2012 with a double degree in Worship Arts and Psychology. Currently, I am self-employed and, in addition to the tons of fun I have coordinating Capture Hope, I write copy, manage social and other online media, and build simple websites for some incredible clients.

But that’s enough resume for you – on to the important stuff!

I am married to the coolest guy in the world. No, really… He’s the best! My husband, Josh, is one of my heroes. He works crazy hard for our family, and has a deep passion for preaching the gospel and showing loves to teenagers he identifies with – the kind of kids who are often overlooked or pushed to the side.

We attend Grace Church: Nashville, here in Franklin. Our community there plays a huge part in this ministry – they are some of my biggest cheerleaders, and the connections I’ve made there have very often led to meeting some of the people you read about here on the site.

If you’ve gotten this far in my bio, bravo! I’m impressed. Here’s a few fun bonus points… I love puppies and obnoxious lime green (just like it says in my short bio), I love to pretend I’m Whitney Houston when I sing karaoke, and I’m as bouncy and fiery as I look like in my photo! I have a heart for injustice to shut its mouth (Job 5:16). Part of how I hope to participate in this (in addition to sharing these awesome stories, of course) is to travel the world and sing hope over the captives.

I believe that Jesus is 100% capable of and willing to restore even the most desperate situation. I will never apologize for my relationship with the Creator of the universe, though I can assure you I personally will make the occasional mistake along the way. If you are hurting, broken, and want to get to know Jesus, I would greatly appreciate the chance to talk to you. Click here to contact me!

Above all, I want you to leave your visit to Capture Hope finding some hope and freedom you didn’t have, or to be inspired to spread the message of earth-shattering hope in a new way.

The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.”
// John 1:5
