“I speak and write to encourage courage — because right now, courage matters more than ever.” 

— Michael Anthony


No one is born courageous. Courage is something anyone can develop.

Michael Anthony Paolicelli (pronounced powl-ee-chell-ee) knows a few things about overcoming fear. His life has been marked by adversity, including four brushes with death, surviving two kidnapping attempts as a child, and being estranged from his father for many years before a powerful reconciliation. He simply uses his first and middle names for simplicity. 

A Call For Courage, along with Michael’s blogs, op-Eds, appearances, livestreams, and podcasts will help you and your friends develop courage as your new way of life. It’s time to stand up and speak out in a sit-down, shut-up world!

They say behind every good man is a great woman, and this is absolutely true with Michael. His wife, Janet, plays an indespensible role in his life and ministry. She homeschools their two boys and loves mentoring women on how to live maximized, God-honoring lives characterized by truth, love and joy.

Janet’s also a fantastic editor, adept in art, and speaks French and a bit of German. Humble, gentle, passionate about God and people, she’s a real class act all around.
