Michelle R. Acker

Hello there! It’s so nice to see you here!  


I’m Michelle, and regardless of what my bio says, I want you to know I’m just an ordinary girl trying to get my act together.  I’m often overwhelmed, usually over-scheduled, and always clutter-challenged, despite my best efforts to remedy those issues.  I’m also wife to a wonderful, funny guy, who has been by my side since way back in 1995.  We have two ridiculously fun boys, own a small business together, and we think Sunday afternoon naps are the best! Journaling, creating pretty much anything, gardening, or soaking in a hot bath are where you’ll find me when I carve out a little time for myself.Michelle R. Acker

A long time back, I realized I couldn’t do it all, and I didn’t want to keep trying, either. I’m still learning to slow down, let go, and surrender to following God’s lead.  I write here at MichelleAcker.com as an outlet for the lessons God is teaching me, to leave a legacy for those coming behind, and to empower and equip women to be still and live lives filled with purpose.

 I want to show you how the practice of Being Still can transform your life.  

I want to teach you how to Leave Your Legacy for friends and family.

I want to help you embrace the practice of regular Rest and self-care.  

I believe these three elements work together to give your life purpose and meaning and the energy to make it happen.  They are the first steps in learning to follow Him and live a life of purpose and wild obedience.  I’m still learning and taking those same tiny steps.  Join me?

Together we can Be Still, Leave a Legacy, and learn to Rest.
