Hi, I’m Michelle!

I know a thing or two about adversity. I was a teen mom and single mom. I mentored and taught women in abuse and crisis for 8 years. As a parent, I’ve journeyed with children through mental health issues, which included some really dark seasons. I’m a leader and trainer within the Trauma-Informed Faith Community – a community that is honest about and hardship. While working with and training various organizations and groups, I’ve learned we care for others best when we care for ourselves as well, embrace the slow virtues, and trust Jesus more – one step at a time, One More Truth applied at a time.


I’m a married mother of four, plus two sons in law, and a Mimi of one.

I’ve lived in 5 states all over the map, but right now, home is the desert suburbs of Phoenix, Arizona.

I’m an early riser, sunrise chaser, fitness enthusiast, and Barre instructor.

I’m a Certified Trauma Specialist and a grant writer.

I’m a Board member of The Redbud Writer’s Guild.

Before OMT, I journaled through the entire Bible for each of my children. Took a year and a half, but it was the most defining Bible study I’ve ever experienced. I highly recommend it.

My work has been featured with many publications, including the Women’s Devotional Bible in The Message (2024). You can read my featured work here.

Truth is most captivating when lived sincerely and offered gracefully–at the right time. Jesus gave the best example. One More Truth is a reflection of His love, His simplicity, and His goodness.

Welcome to this safe space.
