A Story Of Making Peace With An Unexpected Life
“Sometimes life’s greatest beauty shows up right in the middle of the mess…” – Michele Cushatt
Listening to Michele on This Is Your Life podcast with Michael Hyatt, I knew how much she had to offer. Then I heard Michele speak at the Platform Conference. She made such an impact on me that I knew that we had to share her message on our podcast.
What I didn’t know was that Michele had been diagnosed with tongue cancer and was about to start her treatments! Since she would not be available for an interview anytime soon, our podcast is the speech from the conference that she poured her entire heart and soul into.
Michele has published a book, Undone, detailing how you can find peace in the presence of your own turmoil. Due to her health, Michele can’t be part of the book launch, so we want to help her get the word out–and so can you!
Order Undone at amazon.com; you will be blessed!
Then, go to Michele’s website and share your own “undone” story!
“Faith in the midst of the unknown is the only kind of faith at all” – Michele Cushatt
From the Author, Michele Cushatt:
Life seldom turns out like we imagine. Oh, we try to make it everything we’ve dreamed it to be. We work oh-so-hard on our marriages. We exercise, eat right and care for our health. We parent with feverish desperation. We read books, go to conferences, take notes and then try a bit harder. But regardless of our efforts, sometimes the unthinkable happens.
A marriage disintegrates. A child run aways from home. A doctor calls with bad news. A church splits right down the middle. In the span of seconds, ordinary life turns upside down. And everything you thought you knew and loved about your life is gone, evaporated in front of your eyes.
What you’re left with resembles nothing of the life you dreamed. It’s messy, uncomfortable, and just plain hard. Painful, even. And no matter what you do, no matter how many times you pick yourself back up again and try to fix it, the life you dream about remains out of reach.
So if you’re at the end of your hope, if you wake up and wonder how in the world you can go on with this unexpected life you’ve been given, if you’re tired of fear and desperate for a drowning of peace, pull up a chair, my friend. You’re not alone.
And, believe it or not, undone is beautiful.™
