Embrace the life you have while pursuing the life you want.

Welcome to my blog! I write about the deep stuff – stuff I think really matters in life: identity, emotional health, spiritual freedom. Faith. Growth. The pursuit of a full, thriving, beautiful life.

My prayer is that what you read here will inspire you to go after all of it with everything you’ve got.

BTS, Pandemics, & the Loss of My Soulmate

I’m going to try really hard to not make this a stream of consciousness type of thing, but this whole pandemic/quarantine/epic-world-crisis situation is sending my emotions into overdrive. I’m feeling all the feels pretty much every day, but my biggest recurring...

You might want to keep scrolling if you don’t want real and raw, because that’s where I am right now, writing this piece. There is a certain, maddening pain when someone or something you love is ripped away from you, but it’s when you finally concede and let go that...

My Real-life, Mid-life (Mom) Crisis

When I was a kid, I thought a mid-life crisis meant you bought a sports car because you felt bad about getting old. I also thought it was a guy thing — an old guy thing. Yet here I am, proving myself wrong: a 50-year-old mom with no sports car on the horizon, standing...

What ‘Self-Love’ is Really Supposed to Mean

Let me start right off the bat by saying that I think the term ‘self-love’ is super cringy. Like…ew. But it’s everywhere right now. The topic and its moniker are headlined in psychology articles, pop music lyrics, books, blogs, and memes galore. And it begs the...

Why Deconstructing Your Faith is Good For You

Why Deconstructing Your Faith is Good For You

Have you ever had a crisis of faith? I’ve always thought that meant questioning whether you believe in God anymore, but for some people like me, it’s not exactly that. It’s more that you begin to doubt the specifics of what you believe. You wonder whether what you’ve...

Danger! These 5 Things Can Kill Your Marriage

Not too long ago, I wrote a couple of posts about marriage that were incredibly well-read. They seemed to have touched upon deep longings most people have within their relationships: To be known. Loved. Affirmed. Cherished. I believe when you read these kind of lists,...

Spiritual Freedom Isn’t a Free Gift

Spiritual Freedom Isn’t a Free Gift

As Christians, we are the beneficiaries of so many good things from God, it’s nearly impossible to list them all. We spend a considerable amount of time in prayer and thanksgiving acknowledging that we are undeserving of them, which, of course, is true. He gives us...

How I Finally Overcame Mental Illness

Whoa…overcame? That’s a pretty bold statement in the title, even for me. Mental illness (anxiety, depression, PTSD) has dogged me most of my life, and handicapped me for a good portion of it. But not today. Not for a whole year. And now, I’m going to do my very best...

My Latest Book

Do you struggle with being able to feel the Father’s love for you? Are you tired of trying to shake that restless feeling and nagging loneliness you’ve been carrying all your life? You don’t have to go it alone anymore.

You’ve been adopted. 

|

Biblically sound and inspiring, Grafted In by Michelle Wuesthoff will empower you to see your own identity and worth in light of God s powerful plan. You are not abandoned. God has beautifully adopted you into his forever family. The implications of this truth will positively affect every aspect of your life!

Mary DeMuth, author of We Too: How the Church Can Respond Redemptively to the Sexual Abuse Crisis

Grafted In is full of healing power for those secret, painful places we seldom acknowledge or reveal. It’s as if God reached through Michelle’s words to my tired soul and breathed the Spirit back into me. Whether you are in the midst of a painful situation or in recovery from one, this book will disciple with gentle, loving authority. Transparent, honest and humble-thank you, Michelle Wuesthoff, for sharing your mighty God story with us.

Wrought from Michelle’s own orphan-heart experiences, Grafted In guides those of us who feel disconnected from the Fathering heart of God on an important journey. With this book, you will clearly identify your need and find the path to become grafted in as a true son or daughter of the Father. Grafted In is everything I hoped it would be–and so much more.

Anna LeBaron, author of The Polygamist’s Daughter

Michelle Wuesthoff has done the body of Christ a great service. She blends her powerful testimony with biblical insight, scientific understanding, and wisdom from others. She shows the way for us to follow her in the path to adoption. Even if you read this book to help someone else, you will be touched and grow in freedom yourself. Grafted In will help many to move from living as orphans to enjoying the loving embrace of Father God. We welcome and celebrate this valuable book!

Grafted In was one of the best books I read in 2018. This companion study does not disappoint. As stated by another reviewer, it can stand alone and does not necessarily need to be used alongside Grafted In.

This is not your normal Devotional/ Small Group book. I loved the unique approach this study takes. You’ll find thought-provoking journal prompts, write your own Psalm, and go deep into finding your identity in Christ.

I love that Michelle was able to cover a wide breadth of topics without making it feel like she was jumping around too much. I think this would be an excellent small group study or a personal Bible study. It especially spoke to me in this season of life I am in right now. My family is coming out of a time of deep personal struggle and suffering, it’s helped me remember who I am in Christ, evaluate my priorities and remember His love for me.”  — Amanda O.
