About

I bring my trophies and my scars to my work as a coach. It’s not just my victories that make me effective; it’s also the lessons I’ve learned from my mistakes and heartache.

My books have sold more than 2 million copies in dozens of languages. And I’ve also unpublished books when I realized they harmed people.

I’ve led a staff of 50 people in a megachurch. And I’ve experienced the relational pain caused by organizational dysfunction.

I’ve built a following of hundreds of thousands on social media. And I’ve also experienced the downside of that attention when I publicly deconstructed long-held religious beliefs.

Through it all, I’ve learned the power of living an authentic story and of claiming your voice. My personal mission is to help people whose voices have been stifled. I want to help them share their message with the world.
