He advocates 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.
