Overcoming Abuse and Finding Faith with Michelle Elizabeth Williams

Hey family and welcome to Da Fixx. In this episode, I had the privilege of sitting down with the incredibly inspiring Michelle Elizabeth Williams—a name that resonates with strength, resilience, and talent. As a singer, author, and CEO, Michelle has navigated a life filled with challenges, yet she emerged victorious, using her voice to uplift and empower others after overcoming abuse.

The Journey of Overcoming Abuse

Michelle’s story is one of overcoming the darkest of times. She opened up about her past, marked by abuse and rejection, and how these experiences shaped her search for love and acceptance. It was through her faith that she found solace and strength. Michelle poignantly shared, “Rejection is God’s protection.” This powerful realization helped her see that what she perceived as rejection was, in fact, a divine shield, safeguarding her for a greater purpose.

Discovering Faith in the Midst of Darkness

One of the most profound moments in this discussion was when Michelle recounted her introduction to God. It wasn’t through traditional means, but rather through a series of life-altering events that led her to seek and find a higher power. Her story is a testament to the idea that sometimes, we find light in the most unexpected places. Michelle’s encounter with faith was not in a church, but in the midst of a storm, both metaphorically and literally.

The Healing Power of the Word

Michelle’s journey to healing began with a simple, yet profound act of placing a Bible on her chest as a child, struggling to breathe due to a severe sinus issue. This act, born out of desperation and innocence, became a pivotal moment of divine intervention. She described how the red letters of the Bible—words she didn’t yet understand—brought her healing and comfort. It was a physical and spiritual awakening that set the stage for her future encounters with God’s love.

Embracing Therapy and Counseling

Addressing the often-stigmatized topic of mental health, especially in certain cultures, the discussion delved into the importance of seeking professional help. She candidly shared her own experiences with therapy, emphasizing that healing from childhood trauma is a journey that often requires guidance. It’s a powerful reminder that seeking help is not a sign of weakness, but rather a courageous step towards self-discovery and recovery.

Marriage, Communication, and Boundaries

In the real talk segment, DJ Focus and Dice Gamble discussed the delicate dynamics of marriage. Dice spoke of the lessons she learned in communicating with her husband and the significance of understanding each other’s unique communication styles. Our hosts also discussed the necessity of patience, compassion, and understanding in resolving marital conflicts. The importance of setting healthy boundaries and avoiding toxic communication patterns was underscored, highlighting that respect, positive intent, and friendship are the cornerstones of a strong marriage.


As the episode drew to a close, our hosts were left with a profound sense of admiration for Michelle Elizabeth Williams. Her resilience, her unwavering faith, and her commitment to self-improvement are a beacon of hope for anyone facing adversity. Her story is a powerful reminder that our past does not define us; rather, it is the strength we find in our struggles that shapes our future.
