Serving God Where You Are with Michelle Triebold

Raise your hand if you’ve ever thought or said something along the lines of, “I wish I could help, but I don’t have anything to offer.”


Remember that God doesn’t ask us to change the world; He asks us to obey and trust Him—wherever He leads.

This is exactly where Michelle Triebold (podcast guest today) found herself.

About a decade ago, Michelle hesitantly agreed to travel to Liberia, West Africa, to help a nonprofit with some photography and marketing materials. Little did she know that the Lord had so much more in store for her. She and her husband have now adopted two children from Liberia, and Michelle only recently transitioned out of directing the nonprofit’s adoption program in the country.

Now, Michelle partners with artisans in Liberia to sell their handmade goods to others around the globe at The Mango Tree Boutique. Each piece is handcrafted and packaged with a photo and note about from the artisan. It’s truly, “Style with a Story”. All proceeds go back into supporting the local artisans who create the beautiful pieces.

Michelle also leads a Facebook page and group called ‘Prioritizing Home‘. Her efforts there focus on monthly accountability challenges that encourage other moms to declutter and enjoy their homes. She’d love to have you join her group!

“Don’t assume that you have nothing to offer until you know what it is that someone else needs.”
