When Michelle first asks “Why not?” I was cheering her on. By the time she revisits that simple/complex question near the end of her book, I was asking if “Why not?” would change the tapestry of my Christian walk of faith.
Michelle has the gift of painting a moment of joy or laughter into a lesson for my spiritual journey. Her insights on growing in our faith transformation, learning to pray as the first response to anything, and giving up control of our lives are spot-on when we want to live like Jesus.
As I read “Spiritual Misfit” I could imagine swapping everyday life over coffee or tea with Michelle, laughing at her joyous interpretation of life, refreshed, and inspired to continue making the choice for God’s transforming power in my life.
For anyone who has serious doubts about the initial leap of faith, or a believer needing encouragement out in the trenches, Michelle’s book will challenge you to ask yourself, “Why not?” and then take the next step.
