Born in 1965, Michele endured mental, physical and sexual assault for most of her adolescent and teen years. Michele was molested at the age of eleven, raped at the age of seventeen, mentally and physically abused by men she dated. Michele's brother was tragically killed when she was sixteen years of age, which was another terrible emotional blow. Through all of Michele's disappointments she has clung to the knowledge she has acquired about her loving, faithful God.
In 1985 Michele met Marty L. Davenport and they married in 1987. Michele and Marty realized that for their marriage to work they needed a relationship with their Creator and less of other influences in their life. Two years into their marriage Marty and Michele dedicated their life to the Lord. Marty and Michele have two beautiful girls: Whitney, and Dakota. They are beautiful young women and a source of happiness and support for their parents.
After the death of Michele's biological dad in 1996, Michele realized her call to preach the Word of God. From that moment, God has orchestrated everything in her life and family to fit His perfect plan.

Both Marty and Michele served together as Altar Prayer Ministers at "Eagle Mountain International Church." God's love and forgiveness has inspired Marty and Michele to forgive without ceasing and to love without condition. Michele demonstrates the joy of the Lord everywhere she goes. Her excitement about God is heard through the messages God has given her to preach.
