Meet Michelle Lenae, Founder & Host of Christ over Culture Podcast. She was definitely put on this earth to inspire. Christ over Culture is a podcast for Christian millennials who wish to seek or renew their relationship with Christ. New episodes air every 2nd and 4th Wednesday on iTunes, GooglePlay and Stitcher. It features inspirational conversations with everyday millennials who share their life stories, lessons learned and ways to keep Christ first in our lives, in today’s society. It’s a must listen! Our favorite is the 3 part series with Brie Daniels.
Here is what Michelle had to say:
What inspires your fire (what inspires you)?
God, my family, my community, and my friends; that’s what inspires my fire! I love all of them! They encourage me, challenge me, and inspire me to give back.
What piece of advice would you give your 16 year old self?
Take a deep breath boo, slow down, but keep the same spunk that you have as a teenager in your later years. You’ll need that. You’ll need that to constantly believe that you are a fearless woman, even when (it seems like) you have everything to fear, and you’ll need that to believe that the world is your oyster, because the world is undoubtedly yours. Never ever give up the spunk. Dream big dreams my love and then pursue them with reckless abandon. You are the co-creator of your dreams…paint your dream life with God.
On boys…because let’s face it, it was the vein of our existence in high school. Nobody said it better than Cristina Yang herself, Grey’s Anatomy “Don’t [ever] let what he wants eclipse what you need. He’s very dreamy, but he is not the sun. You are.”
What’s one healthy habit that keeps you going and why?
I run and pray together. Running clears my mind and prayer keeps me balanced. The combo is a win-win. I can stay fine all year long and spend time with God. I love running outside because I’m reminded of God’s nature and creation, it’s a beautiful thing.
