A Place to Ponder

About me


I'm Mike. I’m many things to many people—a husband, father, friend, teacher, leader, listener, writer, and traveler. Over the course of my life, I've worn many hats—educator, businessman, coach, pastor, and leader in another land. I make my home in Londrina, Brazil with my wife loving Luciana. Our wedding was one of the happiest days of my life. You can check out our wedding pictures on this site.


My life doesn’t fit into nice, neat boxes, but I try to live it with integrity and passion. My burning passion is to make a significant and enduring difference in the lives of others as a servant-teacher-leader, while trying to figure out my own stuff.


An invitation to a journey


I'm on a journey. I'm constantly pursuing new discoveries, pondering deeper meanings beneath the surface, and searching for ways to make a difference. I don't know it all. I'm without a doubt a work in process. I've had many successes and just as many failures. But I’ve learned some things and maybe something that I've learned along the way will stir up something in you.


I’m inviting you to connect your journey with mine. This is an invitation to dwell and contemplate some essential ideas for living a meaningful life.

Feel free to write on my guestbook. If we haven't had the opportunity to meet, please add a personal note introducing yourself. Again, welcome.

Foz do Iguaçu, Argentina
