Michelle's Story



Hello!! Thank you for visiting my blog!

Well a little bit about me is I am a wife to my incredibly loving and supportive husband of 12 years. He is everything I am not, and I think we compliment each other perfectly with just the right strengths and faults that allow us to be an incredible team. God allowed me to find my soulmate at a very young age and we married when I was 18 and he was 21. We both re-dedicated our lives to the Lord before our engagement and asked God to write our love stories, because we weren't having much luck on our own. We grew up in church together and I guess you could call us "church sweethearts".

I am also a mother to two boys. I am having so much fun watching them grow up and seeing the little men they are becoming. There is rarely a dull moment in our house. They are the reason I write and blog. If I never touch another person's heart with any of my words, then I pray their lives be encouraged and strengthened by the faith and prayers their mommy sends up for them. 

Life sounds perfect right? Blessed, yes...perfect, no. I've had my share of turmoil which I believes makes me an authority on the things I write about. Expert? No. I am still trying to figure out this crazy world, but thank goodness for God's holy word and His son, Jesus. Otherwise, I may have turned out to be someone else completely without the Holy Spirit alive in me. 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 says, "We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed".

Satan has tried hard to strike me down with:
- parental divorce
-depression
-anxiety
-prodigal family members
-financial issues
-a child born with an extremely rare and dangerous birth defect

But praise God, "No weapon formed against me shall prosper..." Isaiah 54:17.
-restoration
-peace
-joy
-healing
-strength
-courage

These things have allowed me to rise above my circumstances and praise Him for the answered prayers and believe Him for those He is still working on. 

" May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit" Romans 15:13
