The Repurposed and Upcycled Life by Michelle Rayburn with giveaway

Have you ever wished you could...
  • Unpack emotional baggage and deal with the past
  • Confront perfectionism and negative attitudes
  • Change your perspective on your circumstances
  • Let go of regret and shame
  • Build positive healthy relationships
  • Dream big and live with purpose
Discover the repurposed and upcycled life. With her laugh-out-loud Erma Bombeck way of looking at life, Michelle will help you see how some of your greatest disappointments, mistakes, and hurts can be beautiful treasures from God. Part memoir, part inspiration and self-help, this book will help you: Through inspiration from God's Word and examples from everyday life, you'll discover the joy-filled, hope-rich way of viewing your past, present, and future.

I found this book to be a very excellent tool to help me gain a new perspective in life.  Rayburn uses humor and everyday things to get her point across.  She is a down-to-earth, been there done that, speaks from experience author.  She relates to her readers.  Repurposed and Upcycled is a very encouraging and inspirational book to read.

Rayburn has graciously offered to give one of my readers an e-copy of her book.  I'd love for you to visit her Trash to Treasure Decorating blog and tell me one item she has upcycled and repurposed that you just love.  Look around at the different posts.  You'll love her ideas and maybe even want to try some for yourself.   Be sure to come back and leave a comment on your favorite item, along with a way to contact you.  This giveaway will be open until Sept. 15th.  I'll draw a winner from the comments on Sept. 16th.  

Bonus if you follow my blog, either way:  gfc or email Just be sure to tell me which way.  

Michelle wants to help you connect the dots between faith, creativity, and everyday life and discover the joy of finding God in the most unexpected places. Years ago, she left her career as a registered nurse to raise her family, and along the way, she discovered her true passion for writing, speaking, and singing.

Michelle has written more than 100 articles for publication, and this is her debut book. Her writing has also appeared in Christian Communicator, Focus on the Family, Chicken Soup for the Soul, Vista, Queen of the Castle Magazine, and more. She has also written several Bible studies for, and does freelance editing and copy writing.
