LIFE COACHING MATTERS

Ever since Adam hid from God in the garden, we men have been struggling to prove ourselves.

Yet, when pushed, we often hide behind comforts.

We compromise ourselves by not leading the life that God created us for.

We timidly accept the lies that the devil plants in our minds.

If you are ready to step up your game and fight for what really matters, let’s talk about how coaching will help.

Z

Faithful

When you are trying to change your life, you want to be sure that a guide is deeply rooted and connected to the Catholic Faith. It’s just so important!

Z

Rapid

Unlike therapy, one of the goals of coaching is to teach and empower you to help yourself. Additionally, each session you’ll be given homework to complete. Many clients see significant transformations even after the first few sessions!

Z

Confidential

The topics we cover are extremely private and personal. Nothing you discuss will ever be disclosed elsewhere. We call it the “next best thing to the confessional.”

Z

Transformative

The Coaching Process is capable of creating stunning changes to your life. The devil wants us to believe we are trapped; we’ll help you get free from his lies!

CATHOLIC LIFE COACHING WORKS

There is only one thing standing between you and the man God wants you to be.

“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” Proverbs 23:7

Unfortunately, we can’t see it clearly. We’re too deep in. In sports, business, and life, a great coach can see what we can’t see ourselves.

105 – State of the Laity with Dave Plisky

Jesus gave the apostles the Great Commission – and in (a slightly different way) gave it to us as well.

The Christian calling is to become an Intentional Disciple – to all vocations.

Yet, how well are we living that calling?

A new study put out by Desales Media and Vinea Research helps to answer this question, and the answer is sobering!

Join me in this episode as Dave Plisky from Desales helps walk me through the results of this new study. He discusses how active and engaged the Catholic community is – even after filtering down to those who are in deep relationship with Our Lord and the Church. We also discuss what you can do to increase your engagement.

You can read the survey results yourself at https://desalesmedia.org/discipleship/

As you read it, ask yourself where you fit in – and what would it take for you to find that next level of help. If you don’t know, reach out and contact me – we’ll talk!

104 – Pure Desire with Nick Stumbo

In the last episode, you heard Bob talk about how Pure Desire helped him break free from pornography. In this episode, we go to the source; Nick describes his work at Pure Desire.

Like so many other guys out there (including me!), he was exposed to pornography at a young age, and became hopelessly addicted…

…but didn’t want to see it that way.

It was just a problem that came up in some “new” way every so often, that he was for sure going to beat, that never really went away.

Even when a perfect opportunity was handed to him to try something new, he knew that it would be a great opportunity for those other guys who were actually addicted!

Thankfully his wife nudged his ribs and persuaded him to do it. His life was transformed forever. Yours can be too!

Join me in this episode as Nick and I discuss his story, and how Pure Desire finally cracked open his addiction enough to allow the healing love of Jesus to restore him. He shares his struggles starting from childhood and into marriage; escape seemed impossible! Yet, with a new and deeper approach, he found his freedom.

103 – Escape from Pornography with Bob Hood

For over 50 years Bob was hopelessly addicted to pornography. Although he consistently tried to hide it, he was eventually caught at work and lost his job. His wife left him for 9 months when he continued to fall again and again.

Bob eventually lost hope that there was anything he could ever do to escape from this addiction. He even believed that God Himself couldn’t set him free.

Until the day he finally decided to step out of the “boat” of his self reliance, and finally surrender to God.

I invite you to join Bob and I in this episode as Bob shares his incredible story of how God stepped into his hopeless addiction to pornography, and finally set him free forever. This is an incredibly emotional journey through hopelessness and pain.

John Taylor

I was led to Michael at a time when I needed a really good guy in my corner. His devout, patient and often humorous wisdom helped draw out a number of life obstacles that I've been wrestling to address since my childhood. He was a mentor, guide, role model, and sounding board. Throughout the experience, he challenged me to grow, a lot, but was never intrusive and has an extraordinary gift for sensing where someone 'is'.

If you're even mildly interested in a Catholic life coach, I highly recommend speaking to Michael.

Zach B

"Michael's authenticity with faith and advice, and desire to help me improve showed through on each call. I genuinely felt like he sought the best for me. He compassionately challenges what I bring to the table and I always end our conversations with practical action items to help build me as a man."

Jim Johnson

CEO & Founder

"Insightful, deep diving, and sincere! Michael did an incredible job getting me to admit to myself my TRUE personal goals and steps to accomplish them. Thank you for pushing me to be a better man of God"

Skylar C

Michael helped me in both practical and spiritual struggles I was
having as I navigated some difficult life circumstances. He helped me
work on my resume to summarize my most important skills and personal
qualities at the top, and that alone was enough to make the coaching
worth it; I immediately started getting more interviews, and landed a
job within three months after a much longer search. Just as
importantly, Michael shared wisdom about improving my relationship
with God, discerning decisions for myself and my family, and on
communication with my wife as we prepared for the arrival of our first
child. He shared that it is important to be gentle with ourselves
about past, current and future mistakes, while continuing to fight
vigorously to be the man God wants us to be. I know that some of these
ideas helped me boost my confidence so that I could create a strong
bond with my child right away. My life has vastly improved over the
past year, and while that took God's will and some good luck,
Michael's coaching changed the way I presented myself and made
decisions; more men need this.

Jay Coltrain

Mechanical Engineer & Entrepreneur

“It has been extremely helpful to have someone that can look at things from an outside perspective and ask objective, and hard, questions and then follow that up with some great resource recommendations. Michael has helped me question my own assumptions which has allowed me to get clear and focused on my goals and objectives and be able to make changes in my circumstances and life.”
