Ole, Ole, Ole

I saw this online today....and I wept. I am a weepy girl, so that is not unusual for me. Elizabeth Gilbert has different beliefs and understandings of god and life, but her words and ideas resonated with something I deeply believe, and have even experienced!

My teenage years were my "writing" years. Actually all of my life I have been writing silly poems and stories, but as a teenager I began to feel the "rumble across the landscape" as Ruth Stone puts it. I have realized that there are words and ideas that have been given to me and I have been so honored to write them and share them with the world....or, rather my small circle of influence.

Creation is always something we do WITH God....regardless of the form in which it comes. There is a burning desire within me to create! I have always wished to be a window to the divinity and love of our Heavenly Father, and I believe that we do this, not only in writing, painting, composing.....but in creating a safe, clean home. We are alight with this divine fire as we prepare meals, and teach lessons. We shine when we support and create confidence in those around us!

It is a beautiful thing. I thank my Heavenly Father for allowing me to work so closely with Him....for allowing me to create!


  1. Can I just say I think you're AMAZING? I love you Michelle and always have.

  2. Heather, thank you so much! I love you too! I don't think I express enough how inspired I am by you and the woman you have become! How are you doing? I hope your mom is well. Please tell her hello for me.

  3. Hi Michelle-

    It has been a long time, and I have missed having you live close. I hope one day you will come back. It would be fun to see our kids play together again and talk about good times again. Love you and Hope all is well with you and your beautiful family.
