Ree Drummond, also known as the Pioneer Woman, has always been open about the importance of faith in her life. On her last visit to Vail, Colorado, our favorite goddess of home cooking attended a healing church service that took her right back to her childhood days.
Ree Drummond's Visit to Colorado
Drummond and her family went to Colorado this past weekend, and she posted a pic of the Vail Interfaith Chapel with a heartfelt caption about her personal connection with this church. In 2018, Ree Drummond opened up about her religious beliefs in an interview with People, explaining that she and her husband feel that their faith is the driving force behind all that they do.
"We're Bible-reading folks, and we love that verse that says, 'Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven,'?" she said. "We're very mindful of storing up our treasures in heaven rather than on earth. We don't want to bury them in the backyard and sit on them. It's exciting to use whatever success we've achieved to do things that aren't just about us."
She also posted about the Vail Interfaith Chapel in 2016, affirming her personal connection with this particular chapel. She and her family often attend services on their visits to Colorado, and they're open to different sects of Christianity when they attend.
"The mountains are my church, but this is my church in the mountains," she wrote in an Instagram caption at the time. "They have different forms of worship here, and I have attended Lutheran, Catholic, Presbyterian, and Episcopalian services on various trips with my family through the years."
A Reunion With a Special Place
On her most recent visit to this special church, she said posted about how meaningful it was to recite the same prayers she learned as a child, saying that the liturgy "is forever written on her heart."
Ree Drummond also shared how thankful she is to have her faith, saying "I wiped three or four tears from my cheek during the hour-long service, not in an ugly cry kind of way, but out of gratitude," she wrote. "I consider my faith, which has stayed close to me through the many ages and stages of my life, to be a gift...one I hope I never take for granted."
One of the most relatable things about the Pioneer Woman is how open she is with her emotions, from crying at church to shedding tears at her daughter's wedding. We're happy that she was able to have this special moment in a healing place.
