Michelle Alicea is the Founder of Kingdom Princess Pen, an organization that cultivates a Kingdom culture mindset – particularly within Christian women who struggle with understanding their true identity in Christ. Michelle knows the problems associated with this struggle only too well, having personally overcome obstacles from bad decisions to domestic abuse. She understands the fears and challenges facing women who are not yet strong in their faith.
Michelle is the mother of two adult children whom she raised single-handedly while obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Training and Organizational Development from DePaul University. Now, in her second failing marriage, she understands women who too often make the wrong decisions in their search for love. Her goal? Conveying that there is no substitute for Christ.
She writes under the name Michi J (short for Michelle Jackson, her maiden name). It’s her way of connecting back to her God-given dream to free people from prison and restore them to their true position in Christ: from “Prison to Palace.”
Spurred on by her twin brother’s repeat offenses, Michelle set out to find a cure for an ailment which she found was also her own. She now humbly calls it her “twin sin.” Acknowledging her own rebellion and the condemnation it deserves, she finds the only answer is a pardon. Her book A Prisoner’s Pardon delves deeply into the issue of prison reform as an answer to recidivism, because it’s both a legal and a spiritual problem which only the Word of God can address.
As the host of the weekly podcast Prisoner’s Pardon, she delves even more deeply into these issues, focusing on spiritual prisons and how they can even hold people of faith.
Her fiction and non-fiction writing explores, through storytelling, the parallel existence of physical and spiritual laws. Her favorite authors include Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Charles Spurgeon, C.S. Lewis, A.W. Tozer, Dr. Tony Evans, Erwin Raphael McManus, and Kitty Foth-Regner.
Michelle’s voice telegraphs her love and excitement for Christ and His coming Kingdom. Her books, blogs, podcast, public speaking venues and products are designed to help women overcome fear, combat victimhood, and achieve the dreams the Lord has promised His disciples. Her objective is to proclaim and cultivate a “Thy Kingdom Come” mindset, glorifying Christ rather than self.
