Music for The Soul Podcast

Jan 18, 2023

When trauma impacts our lives, our soul feels like it is shattered. One wound that cuts particularly deep is with women who have been abused, misused or simply cast aside in a relationship. That is why we are so excited to have Michael Cusick as our guest today, as he explains how to restore a broken soul.

Michael shares the story of how he wrote The Apology, a letter of apology to women around the world who had been wounded in relationships with men. He talks about working with Steve to turn The Apology into a song and how music "can get past our watchful dragons" so that we may find peace and healing through God's grace. 

Michael then talks about how sharing our brokenness with others leads to understanding and connections with them. Often times we can begin to think "there is no one worse than me" and by speaking to others about our brokeness and asking for help, we can find restoration for our lives and our soul.

Who is Michael Cusick?
