Chatting with Michelle DeRusha, Author of Spiritual Misfit (In Which Michelle Turns Tax Day into Something Fabulous!)

Bear with me. I know. This is the second Spiritual Misfit post in two days, and I hardly ever post anything two days in a row. But, in case you don’t know, I’m really excited about this book. Yesterday, as you know, Michelle and I had (what turned out to be) brunch together. What you don’t know is, after brunch, we each went home, did a little bit of work in our respective houses, and then logged on to Google+ Hangouts to talk about the book.

Let me warn you—my laugh gets a little out of hand in this conversation. But, Michelle holds down the fort with her professional demeanor and insightful answers. I can’t tell you how much I’m enjoying this Year of All the Books! Have fun watching this interview, and hit the mute button when it seems I may be getting ready to laugh, again.

Spiritual Misfit! Finally!

So his hands remained steady until the sun went down." Exodus 17:12  I take great pleasure in watching my family and friends see their dreams come true. It's … [Continue reading...]
