“I celebrate with Mike the establishment of a coaching practice focused on the needs of men and women caught in the traps of addictive dependence on alcohol and drugs. As a family counselor, I had the privilege several years ago to assist Mike in the initial stages of his own personal recovery from his dependence upon alcohol and the resulting challenges that were threatening the stability of his marriage relationship. I realized early on that Mike had unique intellectual and compassionate gifts that were propelling him to pursue his professional training in the field of addiction counseling.
During the past year, Mike has willingly reached out to men who needed an understanding ear to hear their pain. I applaud his efforts in launching NEW LIFE RECOVERY & COACHING. Those who choose to utilize his professional expertise will not be disappointed!”
Dan Lundblad, Blue Water Center for Christian Counseling
“I was struggling with drugs and alcohol and my therapist asked me to meet and talk with Mike. I did, and found him to be very real and open. Mike gently listened, discussed, informed, and guided me through ways to change that I could accept and move forward with. Mike is so informed and open to any method or ways that can make a difference in our lives. He has been where we were or are and is an invaluable guide, mentor and friend. I appreciate Michael beyond measure or words."
"We feel blessed to have been there through so many of the years in helping you achieve your dreams! We are so proud to see your obedience to God in doing His lifework for you. Praying for those who come into your path along this journey we all call 'lifework'."
Kent and Robin Barber, Celebrate Recovery Coaches
“Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven,
Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.
For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses,
but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin.
Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence,
so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need."
“There's only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving,
and that's your own self.”
