“An expert is a person who has made all the mistakes that can be made in a very narrow field.” — Nikki Giovanni
It is not by any virtue that James Bars has discovered how to help others. Rather his failures are the bedrock upon which God began to reach him and move him to share the hard lessons learned.
James has dedicated much of the last three decades to the practice, study and research of Biblical Teachings, Christian Counseling, Neural Science, Faith and Health Counseling, Human Behavior Consulting, Addiction Recovery Counseling and Master Life Coaching. He currently serves as a Christian Counselor/Coach and Author at MyNewMADFATs.com.
James Bars was born and raised in Lewiston, Idaho. He served in the 82nd Airborne during the Vietnam War. After the war, James was honorably discharged and moved to Oregon—his heart’s true, earthly home, where he resides with the love of his life—his beautiful wife Suzanne. He has six awesome children and a handful of beautiful grandchildren. His life experience has been wide and adventurous. He has gone from living like a native in the wilds of Oregon’s Eagle Cap wilderness to upper management with a Fortune 500 international corporation.
His joy’s include spending time with his family, traveling, being out in God’s creation and watching the light come on in someone’s eyes as they realize their true worth and value as a child of our awesome God!
He writes, consults, counsels and coaches with one consuming, Holy Spirit-inspired purpose—to help others enhance their personal relationship with God and enable them to discover His will for their life.
