Michele Pillar’s first book, Untangled, will release October 1, 2016, from BroadStreet Publishing. These deeply personal tales trace her experiences from her younger years where she met God while hiding under the bed to fateful decisions in her teens that would follow her into adulthood to the spiritual hope and healing that rescued and revived her. The recollections weave between present and past, lending the book a cinematic feel that reads more like a gripping novel.
She may be a new author, but Pillar is well known to a broad audience. This pioneering contemporary Christian singer got her start at just 19, recording for Maranatha! Music. She’s worked with The Billy Graham Association, performed for royalty and lent her voice to the animated hit show The Simpsons. Along the way, she became a three-time GRAMMY nominee, recording several landmark albums for Sparrow Records. More than three decades later, she still holds the record for longest running No. 1 Christian radio single for the track “Look Who Loves You Now.”
Today, she continues to pave the way. In addition to writing, Pillar is a sought-after speaker, taking her innovative The Clothesline live events to audiences around the country. She also continues to make music. Her latest CD, You Untangle Me, will release in fall 2016. Also popular on social media, Pillar’s posts regularly go viral, reaching more than 20 million users. Michele currently juggles her vibrant ministry with life at home in rural Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee alongside her husband, Matt.
