Hey there friend!
WELCOME to It’s Me, Michelle Castro, THE PODCAST!
If you’re here…then you’re probably like me…you’re a wife and a mom and probably running a business or two chasing after that elusive balance everyone seems to be talking about.…
But REALLY at the core of it all, your deepest desire and #1 top priority is to serve and honor the Lord, your God, Jesus Christ!
If that’s YOU…I see you…and you’re in the right place!!
Here’s the thing I’ve found over the last 50 years on this earth…the things of this world are FIGHTING against us Christians at every. single. turn.
So friend…if your deepest desire is to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and mind.
If you want to be the wife your husband needs and the mom your kids crave…then, I’m gonna go out on a limb and boldly say…it’s no accident you’re here!
And it’s NOT because I’ve got 5 easy steps to getting your life in order, but because I’m a sinner saved by grace learning each and every day what it means to stop striving for the things of this world and, instead, seek the face of the Lord, MY GOD, my King, MY REDEEMER.
If you’re ready to grow a life against the grain of this world…then sis…hit subscribe, cause you’re not gonna want to miss an episode.
Go Grab that coffee that’s been beeping at you from the microwave or better yet…just pour it over some ice, grab a straw…and…
LET’S GET STARTED!
303 // A MONTH OF GRATITUDE: GOD’S WORD
Aside from the fact that Jesus paid my penalty on the cross...the Bible may be my 2nd most favorite thing! I can't imagine living without the written word of God!
That's what we're chatting about today!
Let's get started.
Also...if you haven't done so...I'd love to hear from you!
302 // A MONTH OF GRATITUDE: GOD IS JUST
Today we're taking a few minutes to talk about the fact that God is JUST! He NEVER over punishes or under punishes!! I don't know about you...but that gives me A LOT to be thankful for!!!
Hop in and let's get started!
IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY DONE SO...I'd LOVE to hear from you!
301 // A MONTH OF GRATITUDE: God is UNCHANGING!
Hallelujah and AMEN!
I think I speak for all of us when I say I'm so glad that God does not change!!!
This month we'll be talking about gratitude and thanksgiving from a little different perspective...yes! we should be thankful for the things the Lord has given us...but what if we also spent some time in gratitude and appreciation for WHO our God is!
So...that's what we're doing!
Grab your coffee and let's get started!
300 // Praying The Scriptures With Jodie Berndt
EEEEEEPPPPP!!! I'm so excited to share Jodie Berndt with you today!
I've shared all about her books in the past, but TODAY...she's ON THE PODCAST!!!
I like to take bold action and a month or so ago I decided to reach out to some amazing women who are definitely outside my sphere and Jodie responded almost immediately.
If you're new here then you may not know who Jodie is - she's the author of the "Praying the Scriptures ... " books. She's a wife, mom, and grandma who knows the ONLY way through each day is with Jesus by her side!
You can find her and all of her resources at jodieberndt.com.
Stick around...after my interview with Jodie I'm sharing what's coming up for November.
If you listened to Ep 298 (apple podcast link) where I got super vulnerable and shared a big piece of my heart with you...or if you've ever struggled with understanding exactly what Biblical intimacy in your marriage could and should look like...then would you mind taking a minute to fill this out for me?
299 // Proverbs 31 From A Different Perspective
I'm fairly certain you've heard about this woman from Proverbs 31 and maybe you're even tempted to skip over this episode...I get it! How many times have we heard about this woman and walk away feeling "less than"...yet again!
Well...I don't believe the author, or our Lord, intends us to walk away with that feeling. In fact, I'm very confident that He wants us to walk away ENCOURAGED and CHALLENGED!
Take a listen to my perspective on this woman.
Here's the Link to the Bible Recap Ep on Proverbs 31

Felt super convicted by your recent episode on social media. Been discerning the same — whether to let go of it, and surrender my business more fully to God. I’m currently in a 30 day detox and believe it’s the start of something new and beautiful He’s doing. Thank you for helping us have courage to go and grow against the grain to follow the Lord! -Megan Gephart, Armed to the Heart Podcast
Love the energy you bring and the foundational focus on GOD.
Even if you're not in an MLM, Michelle's business advice is solid, helping you break through to the next level while keeping God's plan for you front and center. Plus she's super fun to listen to and learn from!
