welcome to my blog

welcome to my blog

i'm Michelle Gregory, a 55-year-old wife, mom, Jesus-follower, beginning French learner, and Arizona native who moved to Montana 6 years ago (yeah--that was a huge change). i collect way too many craft supplies (and occasionally use them), spend way too much time on Instagram and Facebook, obsessively check my email, and own 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 1 very large black cat. i've been working on the sequel to my one fantasy novel for 9 years (don't you feel better now?). i haven't done anything here for a long time, but maybe jumping back into blogging will get the writer side of my brain humming again.

all of that may be more than you wanted to know, but anyway...

encouragement from a friend

a few years ago, my dear friend Donetta gave me this poem. i appreciate her encouragement. this is my writing journey down to a tee.

She Who Believes in Herself

Trusting her instincts was the hardest thing she ever did.
There was that wimpy little voice inside her,
Cautioning her not to take the risk.
There were times along the way
When she was so scared she almost quit.

But she listened to the whisperings of her heart.

She pushed forth with faith.
Faith in her skills
Faith in her work ethic
And faith in her knowledge that she could succeed.

And she did!
In the end, trusting her heart
Was the smartest thing she ever did!
