hello there!

My name is Michaela and I’m in the midst of revisioning this space, making the blog a section of the site vs the mainstay. It’ll take me a while to get to where I want it to be…since I’m not 100% sure of where I want it to be. Life! Here’s to changes.

In the meantime, look around and listen.


Check out my podcast. I try for a new episode every other month. You can find it just about anywhere podcasts are played. (Apple, Spotify, etc) I’d love to hear from you. Share a word that means a lot to you and in 100 words, describe what it means so much. Use the form just below.

19: Sojourner wordhabit

Wendy writes, I have “sojourner” tattooed on my leg. My greatest spiritual growth and encouragement happened at a church named Sojourner. The life of Sojourner Truth is inspiring and reminds me not to be complacent. But mostly, as a person who always longs to be at home, the word “sojourner” encompasses my calling to travel and bridge cultural gaps; to be inclusive and open; to trust that my home is always where God is, and God is always with me; and finally, to bring others along on the journey toward wholeness, healing, and the new creation we are all called to birth. Our word for today is: sojourner Thank you for joining me here at wordhabit where all the words matter. My name is Michaela Lawrence Jeffery and I invite you to send me a word that matters to you (just like Wendy did) and a 100 word max description of why it matters. I will then share what you’ve written or a modified version of it, and talk about how your word is part of my world. Send your words to michaela@wordhabit.com or go to wordhabit.com and submit your words there. In between your words, I’ll share the words that matter to me, how they came to matter and more. Let’s do this together.
