064: Best of TLR with Michele Cushatt

“If life was ice cream flavors, I wouldn’t have chosen pain and suffering…”

Today’s Best of The Living Room Summer Series features Michele Cushatt and her book I Am: A 60-Day Journey to Knowing Who You Are Because of Who He Is.

Michele’s personal journey through cancer forced her to discover her identity in Christ alone and has inspired many women to do the same. She reminds us that it is often the crucible of suffering that brings purity and depth in our walk with God. While life doesn’t always turn out the way we planned, it doesn’t have to shatter our confidence or steal our joy.

BONUS – Don’t miss your opportunity to win Michele’s book bundled with books from all of the authors featured in The Best of the Living Room Summer Series plus a $75 Amazon Gift card! Find out how below.

Important Takeaways from Show

  • Faith is not a transactional relationship that depends on doing all the right things.
  • Cancer and trauma can make visible on the outside our brokenness on the inside.
  • Our natural reaction to pain is to shut down in isolation or push ourselves too hard in perspiration.
  • Rather than running or hiding, we are invited to sit and work through our pain with Jesus, the One who knows and understands it all.
  • We often don’t realize what our identity has been tied to until it is taken away.
  • People often source their identity in careers, roles, talents, appearances, and relationships. But if it can be taken away, it’s not who you are.
  • Our identity must be entrenched in God’s love, the one thing that never changes.
  • In the moments of our pain, we need God’s presence, not His performance.
  • The foundational cement under true confidence is humility.
  • Humble confidence is found in honest self-awareness, owning our mistakes and recognizing areas for growth.
  • We are invited to love God for who He is rather than striving to earn His love for what we do.
