The Prayer of a World Changer

On August 14, 2011, in Mission, by Michal

Mother Theresa was one of the most inspiring people that has ever lived! She literally changed the world and many continue to follow her example to this day. This prayer of her below is one of the most powerful prayers you can ever pray! I personally pray that I may become more like Mother Theresa [...]


How do you deal with Loneliness?

On August 14, 2011, in Growth, by Michal

We all deal with feelings of loneliness from time to time. You can be a room full of people, even people you love and adore, yet still feel lonely. Married people even tell me that they can sometimes feel lonely in a marriage. What do you do with those feelings? One of my favorite authors, [...]


You were made to make a difference!

On July 24, 2011, in Mission, by Michal

When I was a little girl, my room had a bed that was underneath a slanted roof with a window. Before going to sleep, I would sometimes push the curtains away and look at the stars above me. While looking at them, I would feel a longing grow inside of me; a deep hope that [...]


Dealing with your ‘not-so-great’ sides

On July 17, 2011, in People, by Michal

No one is perfect! We all have ‘blind spots’: parts of our character & personality that are ‘ugly’ and need some serious work. The bummer thing is that we cannot see these parts of us very well, otherwise we would have probably done something about it already. The only way to find out is by [...]


Becoming all that you were made to be

On April 24, 2011, in Growth, by Michal

Recently, I’ve been having to make some decisions that were extremely hard to make. So hard, I actually had to tear up about it. You know why? Because they forced me to sacrifice something really good and wonderful, in order that I could choose for something that was even better. Saying ‘no’ to something that [...]


♥ The Dating Prayer ♥

On April 8, 2011, in People, by Michal

There is a lot to say about dating and what this means for Missionistas, but more about that in other posts. What I’d like to share here is that ‘Singleness’ is not a disease that needs to be cured, nor is it an in-between life phase that needs to be overcome as soon as possible. [...]


Dealing with perfectionism

On April 7, 2011, in Uncategorized, by Michal

Wow– I have not written a post in a really long time! Not only have I been crazy-busy, I’ve also pushed blog-writing aside for a little bit. Wanna know why? I’ll be honest: one of the reasons is because I have a tendency to be a bit perfectionistic. This means that I think and overthink before [...]


How do you get out of your comfort zone?

On March 3, 2011, in Mission, by Michal

I don’t know about you, but I like to be in control. Even though I love surprises and mixing things up in life, I want to know what is going on and what is going to be next. I don’t like getting overwhelmed or for things not to go the way I had planned or [...]


Personal story: How I chose for God in my life

On December 26, 2010, in About, Mission, by Michal

Ever since I can remember, I was big on making a difference with my life. I wanted to do something that mattered. I didn’t really know what that meant, but I just knew it. When I was 6 years old I made a conscious decision to make God a part of my life. I reasoned: [...]


Worries, worries, worries…

On December 26, 2010, in Growth, How to's, by Michal

Have you ever been really worried or anxious about something? Not just a little, but a lot? Worried about your situation… The awful, horrible and dark feeling of wanting to give up, of not seeing a way out… You wonder if things will ever change. Worried about relationships… The pressures and expectations that teachers, parents [...]
