Dr. Michele WhiteDr. Michele White is a Christ-Focused Wife, Parent, Licensed Counselor, Psychologist, speaker, and best-selling author. Her first book is “Against the Grain: Raising Christ-Focused Children from A to Z.”  Dr. White will release her second book “Digging in Family Style: An Interactive Bible Study Feast” early in 2021.

Dr. White and her best friend Paul were  married in 1993.   They have been blessed with five exceptional children and a beautiful granddaughter. She admits that they do not have every answer after more than two decades of raising children but have a strong love for the Lord and a desire to obey His calling to raise Christ-Focused children.

Dr. White is excited to share with you what He has shown her about biblical parenting.

Dr. White is the first to admit that she does not have a perfect family. They experience tantrums, fights, disobedience, and all the things that make parents drop to their knees in prayer. They have decided to go against the grain. This terminology, “against the grain,” is fascinating to Dr. White. She heard this terminology once in a sermon. The pastor talked about Christians needing to have the mentality of going against what the world says is acceptable and choosing a different path.

As a mother of five and grandmother, Dr. White’s goal is to share parental encouragement, biblical knowledge as a Christian, and clinical insight as a professional dealing with behavioral issues.


 Dr. Michele White welcomes the opportunity to speak to groups about the faith-based principles she discusses in her books. She has traveled the country as a speaker for various organizations. Dr. White also presents on multiple topics about living a Christ-Focused life. Dr. White held a Lecturer position at Wayne State University for many years.  She also designed, implemented, and lead an online course in biblical parenting for Cornerstone University.

Dr. White offers beneficial insights on dozens of parenting principles that are supported by Scripture – and she does so in a highly-engaging manner that resonates with those who are raising children or grandchildren. She will work closely with you to customize a presentation that meets an audience’s needs.

Dr. White is actively involved in ministry at her church. She is a deaconess, Chair of the Finance Team, and a member of the Praise and Worship group at her church.

Dr. White incorporates the most important pieces of her life in everything she does. God, her husband, and her children. She is truly and woman who not only walks the walk but talks the talk.”
