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!

Do you have a before and after you'd love to show off? Send me your pictures!
