Articles

The new blogzine format includes posts that have three elements:  1) a practical real-life article to inspire you to repurpose your own struggles or challenges into growth opportunities, 2) a fun repurposed or before-and-after idea, and 3) a reading recommendation for you to consider. Check out the podcast or vlog for this content on the go! Michelle loves books, all things trash-to-treasure, and helping women discover hope - something she hopes you enjoy in every issue!
