“Being the ‘normal’ that God created you to be is an incredible step towards realizing your full potential and positively affecting the people who surround you,” says Pastor Matthew S. Miklasz. “Great freedom and confidence emerge when we live according to who God created us to be.”
Miklasz has witnessed the power of authenticity first-hand, drawing from both his theological training and his thirty years of coaching experience that has led him to work with both athletes and other pastors. With the encouragement of his eldest daughter Angela, Miklasz decided to share this message with the world by penning his first book, “A Normal Guy.”
Publisher Lisa M. Umina comments, “This is such an important read today and for future generations. We should each be able to embrace our ‘normal’ selves, and Miklasz is equipping readers with the tools to do this.”
“I want people to discover the deep conviction that God created them uniquely and that He loves them very passionately,” says Miklasz. “When we live with these two convictions, it allows us to impact lives in greater ways. The more authentic we are, the more authentic our worship is, the more authentic our relationships are, especially the deep inner relationship with God.”
With four children of his own, Miklasz is well aware of the pressure the next generations face to conform to societal expectations, whether iterated on the television or through pervasive social media. To deal with these social pressures, Miklasz encourages people to turn to God and find their “normal.”
On his book, Miklasz comments, “I hope to share what I really believe, my deepest convictions. Through my Christian walk, I have journalized many impactful moments about insights and teachings from God that informed my writing process.”
