Exploring Faith is all about people, experiences, relationships, and faith.
Our passion is exploring what truly matters in this life and beyond.
I really enjoy authentic conversations with a wide range of people and discovering how everyday life is spiritual. A graduate of Dartmouth College, my curiosity about faith began there. In an Intro to World Religions course, I began to sense that there was far more to this life than what meets the eye. After surviving several close calls with death, I am truly grateful for every new day and opportunities to encourage people in their journey.

AUTISM ADVOCATE | STORY COLLECTOR | WIFE AND MOM OF 3
Hi there! I’m Michelle - a mom of three spunky kids, and wife to my former battle-buddy and best friend, Phirun. Laughter is one of life’s greatest pleasures, and I do it often. I love the quiet of the morning, as God greets me with a beautiful display of my favorite colors in a sunrise. I love the smell of coffee beans and lavender plants. The best days are spent at the beach, with sand between my toes and a good book or three.
I’m captivated by people’s stories and how they choose to tell it. A person’s journey can be described as a tragedy, including a series of unfortunate events. I am moved when, in those dark moments, they choose love, joy, triumph, and grace. A person’s story feels so intimate, as though they’re letting you in on a little secret. I’d love to hear your story!
No one is better than someone else - all are welcome here.
Everyone's story is significant.
Love wins and is the greatest motivation, method, and result.
Looking beyond ourselves and serving our community is very healthy.
It is important to listen to each other and be authentic.
There is great joy in knowing and following Jesus.
