It’s Been Awhile…I’ve Missed You (and the Back Patio newsletter is making a comeback!)

WOW…so much has happened in a few short months. The whole world has shifted on its axis since I published my last blog post on March 5. I didn’t see it coming…did you? I remember watching the news about the coronavirus coming out of Wuhan in February and early March while I ellipticized at the gym, and I thought oh boy, but I never, ever imagined it would come to this. None of us did…or at least, Read more of this blog post »

More of Michelle's books…
“Busyness allows us to avoid the deepest questions of our souls. It keeps us at arm's length from our truest, most authentic selves. And when we don't know our deepest, most authentic selves, we can't know what work and what role God has for us in this world. In fact, when we don't know our deepest, most authentic selves, we don't really God, because it is God who creates our innermost selves, and it's God who invites this authentic self into deep relationship with him.”
Michelle DeRusha, True You: Letting Go of Your False Self to Uncover the Person God Created

“Grace does not make sense. It's not supposed to make sense. Grace cannot be calculated or formulated, earned or even rewarded for a job well done. Grace is a gift, not a salary.”
Michelle DeRusha, Spiritual Misfit: A Memoir of Uneasy Faith

“It's tempting to get lost in the study, to turn to books and study groups and classes, to know all about God but not know God himself, to read about the Bible rather than read the Bible itself.”
Michelle DeRusha, Spiritual Misfit: A Memoir of Uneasy Faith
