"Michele is a friend that I absolutely adore and trust to speak truth over deep places in my life where I need a confidant. If you have ever felt burdened with unanswered questions and prayers, this book is a must-read. God’s truths are woven through her many beautiful words and heartbreaking stories. She is wise. She is funny. She helps her reader find God's comfort, love and revelation in the midst of hardship. And best of all, she offers up bouquets of the sweetest grace on every page."

Lysa TerKeurstNew York Times best-selling author of The Best Yes and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries

Michael Hyatt

"While this looks like a book, it’s not. It’s actually a life preserver, disguised as a book. Hearing Michele’s story helped me understand more clearly my own story—and connect it to the even bigger story of God’s fierce, persistent, and gracious love. It made me laugh, cry, and ponder anew the mystery of suffering and the meaning of life."

Michael Hyatt, New York Times best-selling author, Former CEO, Thomas Nelson Publishers

Crystal Paine

"Do yourself a massive favor and read this book! I cannot recommend it highly enough. Michele is one of the most gifted communicators I've ever met, but more than that, she's one of the most Jesus-filled people I've ever known. Michele's story will inspire you, move you, and leave you feeling empowered that you, too, can face overwhelming odds and unknowns with courage and bravery.

Jeff Goins

"This is a hopeful, heartfelt memoir about finding the hidden beauty in the midst of life's greatest struggles. In Michele's story, you will see your own story — and find something beautiful to hold onto."

Jeff Goins, Author, The Art of Work

Renee Swope

"The hardest things in life have a way of showing up unexpectedly, as do the most beautiful and breath taking. Through Michele's story, I found mine. Through her remembering, I was reminded. Reminded how God has shown up when I least expected; how Comfort and Peace have pulled up close when I felt alone. How strength came in the most unexpected ways. If you feel like you’re coming undone, read this book and let Michele’s words awaken the hope and courage your heart needs today!"

Renee Swope, best-selling author of A Confident Heart and Proverbs 31 Ministries' Radio Co-Host of “Everyday Life with Lysa & Renee”

Ruth Soukup

"What do you do when life doesn’t turn out the way you always thought it would?  Masterfully written, poignant, and real, I found myself immediately captivated by both Michele’s personal story and her ability to tell it, and I started reading I found I couldn’t put it down.  In the end, it offered hope amidst the messiness of life, and provided a powerful reminder that while God doesn’t promise a life free of pain, he does promise to never let us go.  Undone is a must-read—one of the best books I’ve read all year."

Ruth Soukup, founder of LivingWellSpendingLess.com and author of Living Well, Spending Less: 12 Secrets of the Good Life

Lisa Whittle

"I knew Michele Cushatt has amazing artistry with words. What I didn't know was how Undone would settle into my bones, with startling impact. Michele has spoken for all humanity in its pages, pointing to the Master Creator, reminding us of our imperfect lives and how they are beautiful, no matter the unexpected struggle. Bravo, Michele, bravo. I'll be reading this, again."

What Others Are Saying

"Undone by Michele Cushatt is a rare treasure indeed! It is a heartwarming and brave testimony of the workings of our Lord in our lives, even and especially when we are fighting the greatest adversities we can ever imagine. You will smile, you will cry.... you simply cannot read this book without your heart being changed!"

Lisa P.Peoria, IL


"The unexpected life is something we all have in common, however it is how we choose to walk the journey that makes the story uniquely our own. Michelle Cushatt's Undone is a refreshingly transparent memoir that tackles some of the biggest obstacles that one can encounter on life's path; pain, heartbreak, divorce, blended families, betrayal, forgiveness, and cancer. A master story teller, Michelle easily draws her readers in with her honesty and sense of humor. But it is the vulnerability in which she shares her deepest struggles and the grace that flows through her words that reminds us we never struggle alone. It is in the raw truth that we truly see how God's story intersects with our own story, if we would just open our scared, bewildered, and broken hearts to Him. One cannot read this book and not walk away blessed by the beautiful soul that is Michelle Cushatt. Her handprint highlights to us that God is good...all the time He is good!"

Nikki C.Fraser, MI


"As many of us do, I had my life all figured out when I was 18. Twenty-five years later, my life doesn't look much like what I had envisioned. Thankfully, Michele Cushatt has come alongside me with her new book, Undone: Making Peace with an Unexpected Life and is teaching me that God's plan is the only life plan that brings lasting peace."

Heidi K.Winona Lake, IN


"The Lord has a different path for each of us as we walk this earth. Undone is a book that will encourage and inspire you no matter what your path looks like at the moment. Michele's honesty is a gift to all who open this book!"

Jennie N.Rockford, MI


"From page one I found this book hard to put down. Not only was I immediately engaged in the story, but I found myself underlining all the nuggets of wisdom dispersed throughout each chapter. I love how real and inspiring Michele is, she puts into words what I have felt a thousand times. Love this book! "

Share Your Undone Story

The funny thing about living an unexpected life is that it often tricks us into believing we’re absolutely alone. Pain, grief and fear are isolating. And if we’re drowning in any of those, even just a little bit, we start to wonder if somehow we’re the only ones living in a less-than-perfect scenario. After all, everyone else seems to be living the dream, right?

“My Undone Story” is a chance for you to break your silence. To leave the dark of your isolation and give voice to your story. Your story is worth telling. It matters. YOU matter. In the process, not only will you see beauty and purpose taking shape in your unexpected life, you’ll also end up discovering you are not alone. There is a great big world out there of men, women and children who are living their own undone stories. And in finding the community of each other, we find just a bit more peace for ourselves.
