Stasi welcomes Nancy Carmichael back for an engaging conversation on the power of Christ in us. Through the pressures of life and outward circumstances, Nancy noticed herself shrinking back and losing focus on God’s deeper truths. God began to strip things away, bringing Nancy to a very vulnerable place, and it was there that she saw Christ in her. Friends, Christ dwells in us and remains with us. And we desperately need his life to infuse ours, to pour out of us, so that we can live the lives we were meant to live. Hiding is a form of self-protection, and Jesus is asking each of us to Come Out.
Hebrews 13:5 (NIV) — …because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
Galatians 2:20 (NIV) — I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. …
John 6:68 (NIV) — Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.

NANCY CARMICHAEL BIO:
Nancy Carmichael is the Proprietor and Chief Misfit of the IsleofMisfits.com, a blogging and podcasting Oasis for self-proclaimed square pegs, far and wide. Through it, she hopes to build a community of people who own their awkward, love their fellow misfit and embrace beauty and truth in the weirdness of life. Aside from this, one of her main claims to fame is being merely 1 degree separated from Kevin Bacon, thanks to a friend who once played a stand-in for his leading lady in the 80’s classic “She’s Having a Baby”. As if it could get any better, Nancy is married to a man so good it took EHarmony to help her find him, and a daughter she will obnoxiously brag about if given even half a chance. She has spent her life communicating good news wherever in the world the door opens, through writing, singing, speaking, coaching, counseling and advocating for those whom society often overlooks.
