Fifty-four years ago, a baby was born. She was the tenth child and was adopted out soon after she was born. Her daddy didn't want anything to do with her so the baby was given up. The baby had only one name, Dorothy, which means gift of God.

I was renamed Michele, which means who is like God.

As life went on, I met a man – a cruel hurtful man. He broke me down and destroyed my life. I lost all hope in living. I felt so alone and broken and had nothing to live for anymore after making a complete mess of my life. I felt worthless.

That all changed and even though the situation happened in a way I am glad I got to that point. If I had not experienced life in the way that I did I would never have ended up where I am today – working for others like I was destined to do.

Jesus appeared to me that fateful Friday on a bus and showed me I was worthy.

This is my story.

Michele lives and works in Brisbane, Australia, with her husband, Tommy. Together they have seven children. Michele has written a children’s series based on her deceased rescue puppy and a separate story about a magical tree. Michele is a creative writing therapist. She has a degree in counselling, is a Reiki practitioner and has worked for the Salvation Army as a telephone counsellor. She has also achieved the ‘Excellence in Leadership Award’ during her working life. Michele has recently been to Cambodia on a mission trip. She aims to give 10 percent of the proceeds of all her books to a church-based charity that helps keep children safe from prostitution and trafficking.
