“She’s kind,” according to her daughter Faith.
“She will put family time and put aside work time,” her other daughter Kaylee said.
“Probably the most selfless person I have ever met,” Brandon, her husband, mentioned.
All three of these things were stated about the loving, caring and empathetic woman that is Rachel Newell, and all three of these things reign true about her. Well… these and many other things.
Rachel was raised by her strong single mother Denise, Rachel learned early on in life the amount of sacrifice it takes to put your loved ones first in everything. She does just that when it comes to raising her twin daughters as well as remaining a faithful wife to Brandon.
Rachel also does not take for granted anything to do with family, and she has even built a strong bond with her husband’s father, who they all know as Papa Dan.
Whether it’s building a relationship with their grandfather or being a devoted wife to their father, Rachel shows her girls the importance of family. She makes sure that they know family is everything, and even more so, she makes sure they themselves have everything they need.
“She helps us get through stuff,” Kaylee said “I used to struggle going to bed and she would help me. She stayed in the room with me and helped me become comfortable. If I was scared or had anxiety, she would always be there.”
Rachel is ever-present. She is there for her daughters in all they need, and her love for them never wavers. She is a beacon of support, and she nourishes and teaches them many things.
She shows them the way of life as well. Rachel knows the importance of independence as well as treating others with respect, and she teaches her girls a great balance of both.
“She is kind, caring, loving and puts a lot of hard work into taking care of us,” Kaylee said.
Faith and Kaylee come first, no doubt about it. They are Rachel’s number one priority.
To Brandon, that is the most important thing when it comes to parenting. Knowing that his wife is a mother whose love for his daughters will never waver is more than enough for him.
Well, that and the fact that she treats every friendship and relationship the way she treats being a mother.
“She’s so empathetic and compassionate, and the relationships she has are very deep,” Brandon said. “Anytime one of her friends is going through something, she is there for them.”
Rachel loves to make her presence known by just loving people who deserve to be loved. She makes it a point to make sure her family and friends all have a shoulder to lean on, and her selfless heart makes her reliable.
Her amazing personality helps make the people around her better as well.
“She pushes me every day to become a better man, husband and father,” Brandon said. “She is also the glue to our family. She models amazing traits for our daughters every day with how she treats people.”
The one thing Rachel cannot push her husband to do, however, is become a morning person. While she is very much a morning person, he would rather sleep in and work a little later.
“She gets up, gets her workout done in the morning and by the time we get up she has already started her day,” Brandon said. “She says, ‘I get to do this.’ Her positive outlook on life is tremendous.”
Whether it’s getting to work at her real estate job, running her girls to gymnastics and dance, or just getting to raise her twin daughters with her husband, Rachel sees every moment as a precious one along with an opportunity. She gets to do these different things, and her mindset helps her see that clearly.
It is clear Rachel is loved by many and she is cherished for good reason. She is an impactful presence and the light of many people’s lives. Without her, the Newells know they could not survive. She is their lifeboat and their anchor all at the same time, and they love her for all that she is.
“I would love my wife to know that I would not be the man that I am today without having her in my life. She doesn’t get any credit for everything that she does. She is the best mom and wife our daughters and I could have ever asked for.” – Brandon
