Brother Michael is a such a blessing

His raw transparency is so real and you can’t help but feel so connected to him through his journey. I’ve listened to everything he has posted and his story is so relatable to anyone who is honest with themselves.
Continue the work Michael. God is doing great things through your struggles and blessings.

True Christian

I love these podcasts. Michael Chriswell is through and through a true Christ follower. I am so thankful for these podcasts and that the Lord has him make all of these. They have helped me get closer to God in ways I could never figure out on my own and are chalked full of Godly wisdom and knowledge all backed by scripture. I can’t recommend this channel enough!!

A cup of fresh water in the midst of an Ocean

This an the other journal entries are priceless. In 2013 the Lord started depositing The Fear -of-the-Lord within my soul/heart. There’s NO-ONE who remotely understands where I’m at . That is, until I came across Michael Chriswell’s story/journey. Yikes, I’ve misunderstood SO much!!!
Talk about relearning.
