In this episode, I chat with Michelle Krieg.
Michelle Krieg is a trained primary school teacher and art therapist from South Australia. She has been teaching over the course of 20 years and in 2010 decided to follow her God-given passion to study art therapy. After completing her study, Michelle started working as an art therapist with people who are socially marginalised due to mental illness. Her clients include elderly people who suffer from social isolation, people who are homeless and the intellectually disabled. She also runs a small private art therapy practice called Artfelt Ventures and still teaches in schools when she can. Michelle is married to James, who works full time in ministry to university students and they have 3 children aged 20, 17 and 14.
Michelle and I open up our conversation talking all things Australian. She then shares how God moved her from being a elemetary school teacher to being trained in and practicing art therapy.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosperyou and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
Trust in the Lord and do good;
dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Take delight in the Lord,
and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord;
trust in him and he will do this:
He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn,
your vindication like the noonday sun. Psalm 37:3-6
I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. Revelation 3:8-10
Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness will go before you,
and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. Isaiah 58:8
