Show Notes:18. Michelle Ule — The Story Behind The Most Popular Devotional

Michelle Ule is the biographer of Mrs. Oswald Chambers: The Woman Behind the World’s Bestselling Devotional, an essayist for Utmost Ongoing: Reflections on the Legacy of Oswald Chambers and a bestselling author of inspirational historical novellas. 

She became interested in the Chambers family after using My Utmost for His Highest as a devotional for many years and then writing an as-yet-unpublished World War I novel in which Oswald and Biddy Chambers appeared as “marquee characters.”

Michelle writes an “Utmost Response” to each day’s reading on her Michelle Ule, writer Facebook page–for all those folks who seek insight into what that day’s My Utmost for His Highest means!

A 35 year Bible study teacher in a variety of Christian settings and denominations, she studied English Literature at UCLA and trained as a reporter. Michelle’s also an amateur genealogist.

Long married to a retired naval officer, Michelle and her family live in Northern California.

It wouldn’t be a trip without books. Most dads have enough sense to bring home toys. But my kids get used books. I found a kids book about a horse named Smokey and the author’s first name was Will. How do you pass that up?
