My desire is for God’s truth to so penetrate your heart that it transforms you by the Holy Spirit and gives you real hope!

My Dear Friend,

When I say “The Word” I’m talking about the two greatest realities of all—the Living Word of God, Jesus Christ, and the Written Word of God, the Bible.

So, when I ask, how is your life in the Word, I’m really asking two questions: How is your relationship with Jesus? And how are you learning and living the truths found in Scripture?

I have dedicated my life to helping people come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior, and to connecting them with the Bible at an ever-deepening level.

I pray that as you explore this website you will get to know me a little better, sense my heart for the Lord, and see my desire to connect you to God and His Word. Though I have faced many challenges in my own life, God has been faithful through every one and my greatest joy is to impart His faithfulness to you, no matter your circumstances.

May God bless you richly as you learn and live In The Word!

Michele's Small Group Studies provide an in-depth look at various books of the Bible. These studies are perfect for personal study and groups. Filled with historical background references and real-life truths, each study has been prayerfully crafted to inspire and inform.


Saved by Grace, Living in Power
The people of the church at ancient Ephesus were very much like us today, and the letter the Apostle Paul wrote to them is just as relevant to our lives as to theirs. Ephesians reveals the transforming power of Christ, making ones who were once darkness into light in the Lord. This brief but potent epistle teaches us who we truly are in Christ and how we can live worthy of our calling in all our relationships and circumstances.


Draw Near... Hold Firm... Run with Perseverance
Hebrews is a foundational book of Scripture, one that every Christian should understand. It reveals that Jesus is unsurpassed! All of the Old Testament worship practices pointed to Him, the one born to die as our guiltless substitute. In Hebrews we see the bridge formed between the Old and New Testaments as we discover how the Old Testament shadows are fulfilled and brought to life in Jesus, the Lamb of God. Hebrews also introduces Jesus as our Great High Priest and helps us learn about how to draw near to Him, hold firm in faith, and run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

Six Eye-Opening Studies in the Old Testament
There is an all-too-common misconception that the God revealed in the Old Testament was not kind or compassionate. The opposite is true, and in this six-lesson study we see glimpses of grace in the lives and experiences of several Old Testament characters. In each one we find something entirely relevant to our own lives and our own walk with the Lord, and we learn the reality of His grace at work in us.

Jesus Messiah (Gospel of John)

Lamb of God, Light of the World
Only Jesus the Messiah can bring salvation to mankind. He is the Light that shines in our darkness. He is the Lamb of God, sacrificed as our substitute and reconciling us to the Father. The Gospel of John reveals Jesus as the one who is full of both grace and truth, who meets us where we are, and loves us beyond measure. Yet He calls us to live a life transformed by His power. Irrespective of our circumstances, our age or stage of spiritual growth, this study helps us to know Christ more deeply and enables us to share the Good News more effectively with others.


Integrity in Tough Times
The Old Testament Prophet Daniel held steadfast and faithful to God despite his circumstances. So can we! While living in Babylon, Daniel not only prophesied concerning the end times that are still yet to come, he also showed us how to stay faithful to God even in an unreceptive and often intolerant culture. He stood with integrity, consistently placing God above his circumstances as he clearly pointed to the Messiah, the Promised One who was to come. This study deals with prophetic events, yet it has solid application as to how we live out our faith today.
