Hello, my name is Michele Brown, I am the Founder of Faith Based Writing, Self-Discovery Story Circles, Your Path to Purpose and The Renewal Experience.
I feel fortunate to work with groups and individuals as they unravel, decipher and share their stories. Part of what I bring to these collaborations is my ability to see through the default story they've been telling for years to the authentic story that reflects their true gifts and wisdom.
I've facilitated hundreds of group discussions while leading workshops over the last 20 years.
It's clear that each individual has a very unique perspective about their journey. No two people are on the exact same path with identical views.
I've been blessed to witness many life journeys as people like you share their stories with me. I've been listening closely. Listening to not only the words you say but also to what you don't. Hearing the pain, disappointment, learning, wisdom and personal growth between the lines of what you share.
The beauty is in the journey.
Your journey is your treasure.
The gems are in the wisdom gained through your experiences of overcoming.
Even though your specific circumstances may be unique to you, the ways in which you found your way out of the darkness and into the light can be the exact healing balm someone else is searching for.

Since early childhood I’ve been fascinated by listening to my parents and grandparents share their stories. I can remember sitting at the feet of my grandmother many times and asking her to repeat my favorite stories about her life. These stories always included some crossroads or serious dilemma looming in the background. I felt that her stories gave me another glimpse into the real woman my grandmother was and not just this older woman in front of me who’d grown tired and weary. She passed away before I was 12 years old and I can still vividly recall these moments of sitting with her and listening intently as she shared her stories.
As I grew into adulthood it was natural for me to draw out stories from strangers who would often tell me “I’ve never told anyone that before”. My passion and interest in listening to people share their story has continued through the years. In 2002 I began conducting 'Story' group workshops and mentoring individuals in various aspects of life story writing and self-discovery.
