A native Coloradan, Michala fell in love with Arkansas during her childhood visits to the Ozarks. After graduating from Arkansas State with a degree in theater, she became the Assistant Campus Minister at Williams Baptist College. There she met her husband, Michael. They have two wonderful children, Mary Grace and Nehemiah. Despite a varied vocational path that included being a stay-at-home mom, a paralegal, and currently the office administrator at a wellness clinic, the one constant is her call to ministry. She served as a children's minister at The Neighborhood Church in Littleton, Co and is the current children's minister at The Table. She loves board games, the arts, movies, and all things Hygge.
