Anyone can be a victim; and unfortunately, many times abusers are well-respected leaders in society and even in the church. Hiding behind the mask of charisma and charm in the public eye, abusers are monsters behind closed doors. Michele exposes the abuser’s secrets and dispels the victim’s shame, while advocating for healing and victory. Hope starts with a deep and much needed read of Hidden Bruises in Holy Places!!

Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I’m Michele and I’m glad you’re here!

Let me tell you a little about myself. I live in the beautiful hills of East Tennessee with my amazing country-boy husband. I adore him. I really do. My 2 sons and their families are my very heartbeat, and my treasures. I love hearing the name “Mimi”. It means I get to cuddle and snuggle and giggle with my granddaughter. She makes me constantly aware that I am leaving a legacy.

I love music and singing, travel and exploration, fireflies on a summer evening, and a crackling fire on a cold morning–the little things that make life full of wonder. And laughing. I love laughing–especially at myself. I love sparkle and I believe in leaving a little of it everywhere I go.
