Discover the repurposed and upcycled life. This is a life where no experience is wasted. Like the best trash-to-treasure decorating project, it's a life where God repurposes our junky experiences. It's where he upcycles turns hopeless situations into something so much better than we ever imagined when we let him work with the trash. When we surrender to his leading, God demonstrates his creativity in revealing how our greatest disappointments, mistakes, and painful experiences can be priceless treasures.
Through humor and stories, Michelle Rayburn addresses how to unpack emotional baggage and let go of the past. Readers will learn how to confront perfectionism and negative attitudes, change perspective on circumstances, and let go of regret and shame. It's an opportunity to learn how to build positive healthy relationships, and dream big and live with purpose. Through inspiration from God's Word and examples from everyday life, readers will discover the joy-filled, hope-rich way of viewing their past, present, and future.

Then the color makes us look sallow, the waistband is too tight or too loose or it or it just isnt us anymore? We should toss it, yet we put it back on the shelf to play the same scene over and over.
Humor is the spoon Michelle Rayburn uses to dish out funny, inspirational and applicable personal stories that inspire us to clean our spiritual and emotional houses, give up the guilt, and to embrace the positive aspects of our current lives. Her experienced guidance helps to examine 11 negative types of baggage, to peel away the trash and look for the treasure in every area all those things we kid ourselves into thinking no one else knows about.
Emotional garbage, guilt and bitterness out healing and changed attitudes and perspectives in. Each chapter is short enough to finish in a 10-15 minute devotional time, but has enough depth to keep you pondering and asking yourself if this (action, habit, emotion, reaction) will build up your life or not. If not, Rayburn empowers the reader to carry out the trash, and keep only what builds you up so you can turn and build up others.
Well written, engaging and practical, this little book is a treasure you will want to glean from time and again
SuzEWausau, WIAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5MotivationalApril 8, 2013SuzEWausau, WIAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The words in this book are knit together with strands of honesty, the author's transparency and her willingness to share personal experiences. It's like sitting down to have a chat with a good friend. She shares wisdom she's gathered, and has lively sense of humor. I especially appreciated the interaction of "getting personal" sections at the end of each chapter. The author first gave me Bible verses and thoughts to consider, then suggested creative ways to act on those verses on a personal level, and then ways to move out in order to invest and get involved in the lives of others. The ideas and challenges presented in The Repurposed and Upcycled Life have given me many things to consider and act upon.
