Michele has recently partnered with Daughters of Destiny and
Prison Fellowship. These valued partners affords her even more opportunities to
travel the country and share her testimony.
The Lord has given her a unique way to share her story. Similar to that of Joshua 4, she carries
each stone of her past across her “Jordan into the “promised land” God
has promised to her. Her oft-repeated
and personal revelation of Mark 11:25 "And when you stand praying, if you
hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may
forgive you your sins" becomes the revelation of all as she stacks
her faith-building stones. The last stone is her mother’s tombstone and by far
the heaviest she’s ever carried but with God's mercy and grace she is seeing
the promises of God come to pass.
Her message is two-fold. Forgive and move forward making
Her perspective on Noah, post-flood, reminds us that even
though all appears lost, Noah and his family were not. Recounting the tragedy of
the flood and the significance of the
ark ending up on a mountaintop, Michele takes the opportunity to step
into Noah’s story and to peer into what Noah’s mindset may have been when he
saw the devastation.. Her insight for the biggest storm ever recorded takes her
audience on the journey to an unexpected reality. After the “inventory process”
Noah built his altar of praise to the Lord.
Her personal journey has also led Michele to an “inventory process.” As
she lays her family portrait upon the altar …with everyone in her family, her
dad, mom, and brother have all died, she refuses to take inventory of what was
lost but chooses to look at what He chose to save…herself. Today, she makes her life count for His Glory
and she knows that “Choices Are For The Living.”
Our Missions & Outreach guiding Scripture is Matthew 25:34-46 (ESV Translation)
34 Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, 36 I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.' 37Then the righteous will answer him, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?' 40 And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers,  you did it to me.' 41 "Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.' 44 Then they also will answer, saying, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?' 45 Then he will answer them, saying, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.' 46 And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."
