Michelle is such a sweet spirit! From the moment I met her, I knew she was destined for greatness. She always manages to uplift my spirits with her encouraging words of wisdom on her blog. From always keeping it real, spreading love and light, to reminding us of God’s goodness and grace, she is definitely doing work for the Kingdom!
Here’s her story:
Tell me a little bit about yourself? How did you meet Bree?
I’m a young married woman with a sweet baby girl on the way! I have worked in the physical therapy world for about four years now, but ministry and people are my heart. I met Bree at Cal State Dominguez Hills. She was a mentor of mine and I always knew that she had something everyone else didn’t. Come to find, it was the light of Jesus!
What inspired you to start your blog? How long has it been up and running?
What inspired me to start my blog at @allthingsrealtalk was the need to have a safe community where women could find solutions to real life issues. So many times we try to cover things up in our walk of faith and feel embarrassed to be vulnerable about our struggles. I wanted to embrace these issues and provide a source of strength through Gods Word. My page has been up and running for about two years now.
What is the main focus of your blog?
My main focus is to draw people closer to God and for those very people to see Him for who He is. A loving, kind, forgiving, and close Father and friend.
What do you hope your audience gains from your reading your content?
I hope my audience gains confidence in who they were called to be and fulfill their calling in life to the fullest.
What does influence mean to you?
To me, influence means to live and lead by example. It means putting my words into action and letting my life speak greater volumes than my words. At the end of the day, I want those around me to do greater things!
What words of encouragement would you give others who may want to start a blog?
PRAY. PRAY. PRAY. Don’t jump the gun. Make sure it’s what God wants and not something you are trying to do for you own gain, acceptance, or popularity. As long as you keep God first, your blog will have His breath all over it and it will succeed.
