LIFE IS RELATIONSHIPS.
Principles To Live By empowers and equips people, pastors, and churches. Our biblical resources, coaches, teachers, and counselors magnify God and ignite hope for better relationships, healthier Christians, thriving churches, and vibrant communities. We hope to reach hundreds and thousands of people with God's principles for transformational change.
We are made up of God-honoring coaches, counselors, and Bible teachers, who use their gifts and talents to declare, apply, and demonstrate God's unchanging principles for a healthy life. We want people to understand how to fulfill their unique purpose and fully express the good works that God has designed for them. We believe your greatest life is achieved when you have great relationships (Matthew 22:37-39). Our books, online courses, classes, and audio sermons are built around how to have the best possilbe life. We would be happy to come to your church or event to talk to your group or sit one-on-one as a pastoral mentor or counselor. Let us know how we can best serve you.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
"Michael, thanks for your counsel and godly insight. THANKS for being a part of our lives and being a godly influence on our son. We appreciate you!"
"Holly Eaton is an exceptional therapist. I really appreciate her delicate, authentic and truthful approach. And that she invites the Holy Spirit to lead the direction for the need of the day. Sometimes the need is digging in on an issue, calling out some disruptive beliefs or talking about a health issue that is causing depression. She sincerely cares about her clients for their good and welfare. Thank you Holly! —J.B."
"Gil, your book titled "Weapons of Righteousness: Spiritual Disciplines" has been life-changing for my prayer life. This book I keep near my bedside table. Blessings, Adele"
"If you have ever been frustrated that marriage didn't come with a manual, you just hit the jackpot! "Marital Intelligence" by Gil Stieglitz will provide you with a roadmap for increasing the health, stability, and foundations of your marriage. Gil's book is organized around the five problems in marriage; but rather than being a book about how to avoid or resolve conflicts alone, this book equips you to build a healthy marriage in each of the five problem areas. I strongly recommend the book for pastors, counselors, and anyone wanting to build or bless others with a strong marriage." —Dr. John Jackson, President of William Jessup University
"On behalf of the Board of Elders, the staff, and the members of First Baptist Church of Davis, I wanted to personally thank you for your steadfast and godly leadership in our search for a new senior pastor. You really kept us focused on God’s leading, and encouraged all of us to rely on the Spirit’s prompting as we looked at the daunting challenge of replacing our beloved Pastor Glen after 20 plus years, and to evaluate well over 100 applications. We all owe you a debt of gratitude for the time, prayer, and ideas you provided to us. I personally know that sometimes when it seemed overwhelming, you kept us looking to our Lord to guide the process. Your experience with other searches, principals of church leadership, and links with other resources, kept our eye on God’s kingdom and FBC’s role in bringing His glory to our world." —Rick Standiford Chair, Board of Elders, FBC of Davis
"Our church hired Laurie Kelley as a consultant to renew and refresh our ministry to families and children. Laurie has trained our volunteer leaders to develop clear goals and objectives to refocus our ministry for children. Laurie is also assisting us in our search for a staff person to lead this vital ministry. She has an energetic desire to serve the Lord and to reach people for Christ. Her unique skill set, along with the vast experience in working with leaders and volunteers, has been very helpful for our ministry teams. I wholeheartedly recommend to you Laurie Kelley!" —Pastor Bob Yule, Celtic Cross Presbyterian Church, Citrus Heights, CA
"I would highly recommend Laurie Kelley as a Ministry Consultant. She not only recommends for the Sunday Ministry but also for personal growth as a leader. I have since joined the Children’s Ministry Network of Sacrament and love it! This has been a great wealth of information and idea sharing! Laurie has the gift of leadership and training and has used it in many ways to help other Children’s Ministry Leaders. I was recently at her old church and you can still hear her praises and see the legacy she helped build." —Lovina Kirkpatrick, Antelope Springs Church, Children’s Ministry Director
"Michael, I just wanted to thank you again for meeting with us yesterday, and what you did for our family. Spiritual warfare is definitely out there, and after our meeting, I am more aware than ever. I am working on strengthening my faith within my family and myself. You are truly amazing at what you do, and I feel so blessed to have met with you. We will continue to practice the counsel you have given us."
"Gil, just wanted to let you know that I have really gotten a lot out of your Breakfast with Solomon Daily Devotionals. They have been an amazing addition to my morning time with God! I appreciate getting them! Thank you, Tim"
"Gil, I am so glad you have started this devotional series! I am looking forward to my coffee with Jesus every morning!" —Cindy
