The Workshop

Mike Nygren: Author

The Ten Balloons. Principles of Leadership, Life and Love captures the spirit of what it means to take an intentional look at your life. This realistic approach to a balanced life is personal and practical in outlining steps for creating intentional purpose statements in ten areas of your life.

Mike’s story telling approach to life brings great inspiration and motivation in the areas of family, career, relationships, education, finances, health, and adventure. This multi-generational topic is designed for young people and adult audiences of all ages who like personal challenges.


Mike’s Journey Into Discipleship

It is been an exciting and purposeful journey traveling alongside others with a heart for discipleship throughout my lifetime. Thanks to all who have shared memorable moments, risk-taking adventures and remarkably challenging situations locally, nationally and globally.

I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. John 10:10
