My name is Michelle L. Potter, founder of mi-Chalet (me-sha-le) boutique. As a young girl, I loved hair, makeup, and fashion. In fact, I had hopes of becoming a model and actress while growing up. Little did I know that my failing health would temporarily halt me from pursing those dreams. From a very young age I suffered from health issues which progressed into chronic conditions in my early twenties. Then I was diagnosed with Lyme disease and all of the horrible coinfections associated with Lyme. In addition to the debilitating physical aspects of this disease, few knew that the unresolved emotional traumas I had experienced as from my childhood and teenage years were now manifesting as mental health issues. Near death experiences occurred from being pushed to the edge. I actually believed that my life was hopeless, so I set aside my dreams and passions until now.
My upcoming book, From Hell to Rebirth will take you on a roller coaster ride of pain, sickness, suicidal thoughts, and addictions as I rose from the flames of hell to rebirth. The second book, The Awakening: Truth Be Told will detail this rebirth experience that will dive deeper into personal freedoms and rediscovering the true self and living life filled with purpose.
During my darkest times, my faith was tested abundantly. However, in those darkest hours there was still a faint spark of light and hope. I thank God immensely each day for the gift of opening my eyes and a beating heart to spread faith, hope, and love to others who so desperately need to be heard and for them to know they are not alone.
Also, I can’t imagine my life without my amazing husband and soulmate, Steve, of 21 years, and our 2 beautiful children, Brynin and Kylie. For me life is about going on adventures, making memories, and being an inspiration to others by showing that they too can rise from the flames and make their dreams a reality, just as I have with mi-Chalet boutique.
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for visiting mi-Chalet boutique and making a person’s dream become a reality. I hope you come to love mi-Chalet boutique as much as I do by Being Uniquely You!
Love and gratitude,
