Author, speaker, and 3-time GRAMMY and DOVE nominee, Michele Pillar has a testimony everyone should hear. Her journey of courage began early in life while hiding under her twin bed to escape her parents’ addictions. Looking back, Michele feels only gratitude. “There is no better way to experience the powerful hand of God than to watch Him heal the human spirit. Once healed, these negative experiences are dwarfed and become useful in order to heal others. I am no different than anyone else, I simply talk and laugh about what many are afraid to reveal. I’m comfortable with it because God’s word and love erases all shame. He’s bigger than our stuff. God knew I would be restored, He’d be glorified and others would be empowered to new life. It’s amazing to watch.”—Michele.
Michele's strong name recognition in Contemporary Christian Music and her #1 radio hits in the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s may be the bedrock of her ministry but is not what she’s leaning on to carry her book, Untangled/The Truth Will Set You Free (BroadStreet Pub).
“I love demystifying the process of restoration with humor, the power of God’s word, and even DIY homework assignments! The Holy Spirit taps each woman on the shoulder and begins working immediately”- Michele
