My Ministry

Hi, my name is Michael and I'm a recovering type-A workaholic.

My story stems from my acceptance being rooted in performance, intelligence, and the desire for a better quality of life.

The quick version: it all came to a crashing head at the pinnacle of what the world would define as success.  I was in my 20's making six-figures as a school principal (yes, in my 20's!) but my health, relationships, and spiritual life were completely out of order.

Then God changed it.

I began a journey of renewing my mind and my worldview of work in light of my faith.  Jesus led me to practice proper work-life balance and order as a husband, father, minister, friend, and worker.

Now I write and speak on the intersection of work and faith because of my own testimony.  Because of our culture which encourages 24/7 grinding and performance as identity.  Because of people answering 'what do you do' with their careerwhen they first meet, not their identity in Christ.
