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' when they first meet with their career, not their identity in Christ.

Do Meaningful Work

Are you tired of doing work that isn't fulfilling, isn't contributing to the world, and is draining you of your joy?


What if work became less about doing and more about being?  If you have grown tired of doing work that feels like existing without fulfillment, I invite you to allow Do Meaningful Work to become the beginning of your journey towards loving your career and loving your life!

This isn't another hoorah motivation book.  This is a new way of thinking - a framework to find your identity, chase your purpose, and do your meaningful work.

So are you ready?  Because once you read this, your work won't be the same.
