Hi friend, I’m Michele-Lyn. I am a wife to a wonderful man who loves me unconditionally, as Christ loves. I have been married 15 years, December of 2012. I am also a homeschooling mama of four beautiful children — three spunky, confident beautiful girls, and one tender-hearted handsome son, ranging from 3 years to 18 years. I would not trade for anything the HAPPY CHAOS we make as a family — together.
Before I was 16 years old, I lived a godless life. When I was 16 and pregnant, Jesus found me — hurt, lost and wandering. He reached out in love I never knew, rescued me from darkness, and saved my soul. Since then, I have belonged to Him, and willingly live — A Life Surrendered. Jesus is still my everything.
How could I contend with the One Who saved me?
How could I wrestle with the Guardian and Lover of my soul?
A Life Surrendered is living for a purpose greater than my own.
“An ongoing narrative of a wife and mama,
whose life’s Author is her God.”
I’m more of a mess than I care to admit, but I will. As I share my stories, I hope you find you are not alone, and that God wants to meet us where we are. How I met Him, walking out my days — trials and triumphs by His GRACE; the stories of how I navigate my way through this life in pursuit of God, living to love better, desiring to bring encouragement and hope, especially to weary mamas is what A Life Surrendered is all about. I love sharing my passions and the truths I hold tightly to, in the fight for the family — a most holy and powerful unit the devil seeks to destroy.
You’ll find me writing about motherhood, missions and beautiful messes.
My favorite stories to write are the real-life ones filled with beautiful, grace-filled messy moments.
My Story Part 1 may be a good place to start.
Then, On Days Like These…
And, Mamas can dream…
