Hi! Thanks for stopping by.
If you were here I’d make us a London Fog latte and invite you to sit at the table and chat. While we might attempt to do this, Maggie, our beloved puppy would manage to distract us from any quality conversation.
Here’s a little info about me. I teach Bible studies. You already heard about Maggie, our one-year-old Beagle/Aussie puppy. I am married to a wonderful man and our blended family of four adult kids and eight grand-littles is full of lots of different personalities and lots of love. They are my heartbeats right after Jesus.
You might find me tucked away in my office searching for the right words to type. As I type and re-type I search for acceptable words for the person on the other side of the screen. Words that heal. Words that help and words that move you closer to Him.
Writing helps me to know what I am thinking and process whatever life hands me.
I’m a verbal processor so give me a pen, keyboard or person to talk with and I start understanding where I am. I’m also a strong feeler which makes me sensitive.
I used to apologize for this until God said, I gifted you with feeling for a purpose. I relate to the struggle other women go through.
You might find me in a bookstore, a coffee shop, or junking to find a treasure. I am an Enneagram 8 w 3.
I lead Women’s ministry and walk with women to help them apply biblical truths in their everyday life.
Many of the women I have ministered to have come or are coming out of broken places. This is my life story. Many broken and dark places kept me bound but the truth of God’s word set me free and His word continues to heal my life, holding me together in his love and grace.
I wish my story wasn’t a story of broken dreams and broken things but it is. But God was with me. He promised me He would use my pain for good. That’s where you come in. You matter to me. If I could share some of my story to help in a small way, I would be honored to serve you with words that heal and give you hope.
I wish I could say I have it together. I don’t. I limp. I lean on the one who can carry my weight, my waywardness, and my impatience. Like you, I look to the one who holds my whole messy life together.
My story is the pain of a divorce and growing up in a family with mental health struggles. It wasn’t easy but God was there. I can throw others a hope line because I have been given one. We are all in process.
This life isn’t all there is but there is beauty in it. We are meant to enjoy it. There is joy to be found even in the hard places.
We have an anchor for our soul and His word gives us the strength, stamina and grace we need. Let’s run the race of life together. side by side, all the way to the finish line.
Cheering you on, Michelle
