Welcome to the new Mandy and Michele website. We are excited to get to know you.
Mandy, a freelance writer/speaker, desires to support you in whatever storm you are facing. She has “Been there done that”, like the insurance, “We know a lot because we’ve seen a lot”. Mandy married a widowed pastor with two pre-teen boys. She became their mom and then they added another son and daughter to the mix. A 21st Century kind of family.
Mandy was raised on a dairy farm in Ohio and later in Wisconsin. She acquired a bachelor’s degree from Asbury University.
She served as children’s minister for 25 years followed by serving as women’s minister for 5+ years. In 2011, Chronic Pain became her constant companion which led to job loss for both her and her husband. This led to home and financial loss. But God is faithful and has brought them through these storms. She and her husband now live in Savannah, GA near 3 of their 4 adult children and one grandson.
Mandy would like to come alongside you to encourage you, help you, uphold you. (Deuteronomy 31:6) Her heart’s desire is to encourage women no matter what challenges they may be facing. Mandy loves singing, playing the piano and crafting.
Michele Bruxvoort looks forward to encouraging you in your life adventures where ever they may take you! Michele is sure to draw you in with her delightful sense of humor and love for living life. She enjoys reading, repurposing, as well as remodeling the family home with her husband.
Drawing from her life experience as wife, mom, and follower of Jesus, Michele brings you a very honest and real perspective on life. When you don’t find her writing, you can find her mowing lawns, stocking shelves, and tackling her latest life adventure.
Wisconsin native and empty-nester, she now makes her home with her husband of 26 years in the South West Prairie plains of Minnesota.
