Articles

 The new magazine-style format of the blog will include posts that have three elements: 1) a fun repurposed or before-and-after idea, 2) a practical real-life article to inspire you to repurpose your own struggles or challenges into growth opportunities, and 3) a reading recommendation for you to consider. Michelle loves books, all things trash-to-treasure, and helping women discover hope - something she hopes you enjoy in every issue!

I went to church last night, and so today instead of being at church I’m out on the deck reading. No makeup. No shower. I’ve scrolled through my IG feeds and there are a billion perfect photos of bloggers, writers and influencers all professionally staged, touched up, filtered. I want to stay real #nomask #nofilter . No fake perfection. But it’s tough. Those photos are lovely! The perfect and polished is such a magnet. I could create my business and public persona that way, but I’m fighting the illusion and wanting to rebel against the norm. To be a #nonconformist in the online realm of writers and bloggers. Can I get an amen from the other rebels out there? This isn’t about how I see beauty but in how I see reality.
