Grafted In: My Interview on the Ordinary Faith Podcast

Sep 19, 2018

Hey everybody! Here is a link to my very first podcast interview about my book, Grafted In. It aired on the Ordinary Faith Podcast, hosted by Dan Jackson, on Monday, September 17, just prior to the official release of the book on the 18th. I met Dan a little over a year ago, and we connected over shared interests of blogging and adoption. Dan is an adoptive parent himself, and a pastor at Southland Christian Church in Kentucky. I had the honor of guest-posting on his site just about a year ago. You can read that post here. Since that time, Dan has begun to host a weekly podcast highlighting people’s ordinary faith and God’s extraordinary grace, and I was overjoyed to be asked to share a little of my story behind Grafted In in my interview with him this week: 


5 kids, 4 adoptions, 3 continents.

That’s where Michelle’s journey began. Then, after losing a friend to a terminal illness, losing a church to a unexpected crisis, and nearly losing her mind while trying raise a multi-cultural family, God intervened. Since that time, Michelle has been on a process of discovering what it means to be grafted into the family of God.

In Episode 09 of the #ordinaryfaithpodcast , I chat with Michelle about what it means to find healing in the welcoming arms of the Father, and wholeness within his lavish, extravagant, and reckless love.
