Michael Stickler affectionately refers to himself as a "recovering fundraiser." After 20 years of a successful career in fundraising, Mike's direction changed dramatically as he began to rethink raising funds in accordance with God's Word; ultimately leading him to a new 'holistic' approach to 'generous living.'
Today, Mike spends his days writing and speaking on his passion of living generously. Mike travels the globe to witness first-hand the generosity of God working through the lives of HIS people in order to share these stories and celebrate the generosity of our God and Savior, Jesus, to a lost generation and a desert-wandering Church.
Mike is an author, radio host, ex-felon, and a highly sought after motivational speaker. His best-selling book, A Journey to Generosity, is widely acclaimed throughout the Christian community. He is the publisher of Generous Living Magazine and writes for the Christian Post, 'A Generous Life' column.
He lives near Lake Tahoe in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada range with his wife, Kim, and has two grown sons, daughter-in-law, and three grandchildren.
