Michael travels internationally sharing powerful truths and lessons wrapped up in lived experiences that help people to rise up and go beyond their ordinary limits, so that they can see their value and worth. Michael firmly believes that no one is their mistakes, mess ups, or failures, but all of these things and more are opportunities to find a grace higher, deeper and wider than any brokenness we have in our lives. Michael shares this message of hope in leadership settings, conferences, camps, churches, youth groups, schools, on the streets and wherever it is needed.
