I am an educator and write online at www.michellewallishurst.com My favorite topics are faith, chronic illness, hope, relationships and middle age. I love to read, write, hike and nap. I drink in all the coffee, tea, wine and books I can get my hands on. I used to run long races, but now I mostly run errands. I struggle with faith, questions, complicated relationships, pain and details like where I put my keys. I often don’t know how I feel until I see it typed out. I know both how important and scary hope can be. I find myself questioning my small and ordinary life one minute and the next minute being absolutely overwhelmed by the beauty of it.
