Les and Kristin brought a very real, heartfelt, life changing and Christ-centered message. People are still referencing the impact of their ministry here at our church. I know that God is using them to confront issues in our culture today and bring true transformation.
For years, Les Norman has been inspiring corporations with his no-nonsense, high-energy presentations about enhancing their personal brand, the value of teamwork and success and the importance of authentic, servant leadership. Les’s passion and commitment is to help others reach their fullest potential despite past, current or perceived future obstacles.
Many of today’s youth are dealing with broken families, addictions, social pressure/bullying, and much more. Such was the case for Les Norman, who grew up with an alcoholic, abusive father that left him fatherless by the age of 12. His path could have easily pointed to destruction and tragedy; however, he overcame improbable odds to become a Junior Olympic Gold Medalist, Major League Baseball player, TV Sports Analyst and Syndicated sports talk radio host! He now inspires organizations and schools across the country, teaching them the importance of a strong will, discipline and a perseverance that creates an unstoppable way of life!!
Churches/ Men’s Groups
In today’s society, many husbands and fathers are hurting, living with the wounds left by abuse, anger, loneliness and fear. Left unchecked, this past pain can cause troubled marriages and shattered families. Such was the case for Les Norman. Introduced to pornography at the early age of 7, Les endured a life of fear, anger and addictions that would eventually create further issues into adulthood. Through a saving faith in Jesus Christ, he is now experiencing a transformed life in which he helps others do the same. Norman speaks to men’s groups and churches across the country on the following topics:
• The lures of porn, how it ruins lives, and how to be liberated from the addiction
• Dealing with, and healing from, the pain of the father wounds
• Becoming the husband and father God desires
• Servant Leadership in the home
In many churches today, certain topics aren’t addressed because they are considered to be ‘taboo’, and too often political correctness rules the day out of fear of ‘rocking the boat’. Couples are hurting, yet many don’t get the help they so desperately need due to a lack of openness and fear….
Les & Kristin Norman openly and boldly share about many of the issues they’ve faced in their seemingly ‘perfect’ marriage. Together 20+ years, the Normans’ have faced pornography, anger, lust, father wounds, and more, and help couples along the healing road of forgiveness.
With their signature conference presentation, “The Perfect Masquerade-Living Beyond The Masks”, teaching on the roots of sin and pain, how to find TRUE identity in Christ, and most importantly, how to live the amazing, transformed married life God designed it to be!
As a troubled, angry teen, Les Norman struggled to find his identity in life. After an abusive father left the home when he was only 12, he was left to navigate life on his own, taking only the lessons the world would teach him. Facing pitfalls of alcohol and addiction by age 15, along with peer pressure and a desire to be famous, Norman wore many masks to cover up his pain. He shares his inspiring story of survival and strong faith in Christ to youth groups, camps and churches across the country.
