Undone: A Story of Making Peace win an Unexpected Life

A storyteller at heart, Michele Cushatt speaks nationwide with Women of Faith and Compassion International and is cohost of the popular podcast This Is Your Life with Michael Hyatt.  She has written for Today's Christian Woman and MOPS International and blogs at  Michele and her husband, Troy, live in Denver, Colorado, with their six children.

Connect with Michele:

Sometimes life's greatest beauty shows up in life's greatest chaos.  Michele Cushatt wanted a well-ordered life...peaceful, predictable, and happy...a life she could control.

She never expected devastating divorce and single motherhood.
Or a second marriage marred by the challenges of a blended family.
Undaunted, Michele worked hard to put her upside-down life back in order.  Until, at the age of thirty-nine, she received a cancer diagnosis.  And eight months later, she opened her near empty-nest home to three little ones in crisis.  The resulting chaos proved far more than she could contain.

Undone is Michele's story of discovery, of learning that all her attempts to control her life were robbing her of its vibrancy, and that faith in the midst of the unknown is the only real kind of faith at all.  It is her call for each of us to relinquish perfection and embrace what is.  To lean in. Because right here, right now, in your unfinished story with its missteps and misfortunes, there is peace.  And there is Presence.  Because sometimes life's stories are written right in the middle of the mess.

My Thoughts:
In Undone, Michele Cushatt shares candidly about the mess and chaos that has characterized so many parts of her life.  The mess, which Michele holds nothing back in sharing has been great, but her God has been greater.  She also holds nothing back in pointing to God and His grace as the sustaining thread that has held her life and heart together.  Cushatt helps readers to evaluate their own life in order to find the diamonds of God's grace and mercy among the heartbreaks we suffer in a fallen and sinful world.  She helps us have the eyes to see what is sometimes buried in the dark.  And that is a gift we are blessed to have been given.  Read this book and be encouraged to see God's hand and trust His heart.
