I received a copy of this book to help facilitate my review. I received no compensation. The opinions are my own.
The offer will indeed recycle the "junkpile quote of your life and present it with a new image that will spring forth hope for the soul. "Re-purposed" and "upcycled" will be new terms too many and will be the catalyst for change. If you struggle with any of these areas this is a resource for you:
– Weight loss
– Lack of joy and a sense of hopelessness
– Fear of failure
– Juggling family responsibilities
– Comparison traps
Each chapter centers on a different theme relevant to every day issues women face. This book could be used in a small group setting to elaborate on issues and generate healthy exchanges among woman. I found Rayburn's work to be very encouraging, helping to unpack painful pieces of emotional baggage. Each area is backed up with biblical remedies. Be challenged to study God's word and still yourself before Him.
Michelle Rayburn holds a master's degree in Christian leadership and serves as a speaker and worship leader at women's events. She also is a monthly Columnist for Wisconsin Christian News called "Simply Faith".
Michelle Rayburn explores this question from every possible angle throughout her book, The Repurposed & Upcycled Life. She walks the reader through a myriad of situations, some from personal experience, some from the experience of others. Michelle takes the Scripture and teaches transforming truths about successfully navigating life in a fallen world. She uses her unique talent of repurposing “junk” and applies the practical truths of the Bible to each step of a transformational journey. She wants everyone to walk in the freedom and purpose of God’s plan for their lives, and her book equips folks to do this!
Each chapter packed with things you will want to remember, so please read with your highlighter at the ready! At the end of the chapter Michelle offers a section called Getting Personal. Here you will find a section entitled Faith where she asks purpose-filled questions of self-examination. She follows this with a section entitled Creativity where she offers ideas of creative activities that give your situation a concrete re-purposing. The last section is entitled Everyday Life gives practical ways to put what you’ve learned into action.
This is a book that will bring healing and hope to many people in a variety of situations. Don’t rush through this. Take time to absorb what God has for you in these pages. This book has been a love note from God in my life!! How I praise Him for Michelle Rayburn’s ministry!
In The Repurposed and Upcycled Life, Michelle Rayburn does a masterful job of examining the issues that plague women and then helping them to "clear out the trash." She frames every chapter with candid examples from her own life, and then decorates that frame with how God can repurpose our difficulties.
I admire Michelle's sense of humor. I laughed out loud quite often as I read, causing a few raised eyebrows from onlookers. (I read a lot in waiting rooms.) Michelle uses her humor well in communicating the difficult issues discussed in Repurposed. Here are three chapter titles to illustrate my point: Tooth Fairy Decay, Better Homes and Varmints, and Chicken Coup for the Soul.
Included in every chapter is a "Getting Personal" section that encourages a deeper look into the Bible, and a creativity section with with a craft idea often crafted with recycled items. A good read for all women, but especially fun for those who like crafting. A marvelous example of Romans 8:28 in action.
