My Story

I Spent 7 Years (yes, 7 years) in High School Before I Learned the Keys to Happy and Successful Living!

 

Can you imaging spending 7 years in high school? That is just what I did! At the time, out of more than 1500 students in my high school I was one of only two so-called “7-Year Men.” At the time, in Canada, high school was a five-year process. So, even in Canada I spent two years longer in high school than was normal.

 

I’m sure that few, if any of my teachers, ever thought I would amount to much. In fact, the Head of Guidance for my high school told me, “Why don’t you quit? You’re just wasting your time.”

 

I didn’t quit and later proved her wrong!

Testimonials

Display the best words your students have ever spoken about the course & how it helped them.

  • “When I was ready to move forward he provided me with the support and encouragement I needed to make important changes in my life. ‘Thank you, Pastor Gary Page, for generously agreeing to counsel me. You did it with Godly counsel, in a way that was most productive, supportive and enlightening. Thank you for generously sharing your wisdom and for directing me to tools and resources that helped me to grow into a better person. Thank you for asking me all the right questions and for being so positive and encouraging.’ “Most of all thank you for never giving up on me. I will be forever grateful to the Lord for directing my path to you.”

    Ms. S. Berger - Parent

  • “Gary Page and I have had a professional consultative relationship for over 30 years. I have always found him to be kind, wise, caring and superb at understanding situations from all angles, spoken and implied. Gary Page is an outstanding counselor and I know he will do a superb job at whatever challenge he faces.”

    Judith Gabor, Ph.D. - Executive Coach

  • “As a parent, I would jump in and scold my children every time a problem came up. This created angry arguments and sometimes resentment that lasted for days. Gary Page’s book certainly helped change this response. It offers specific examples and an easy-to-follow communication skills program that a parent can customize to fit their own parenting style. I wish this book had been available years ago.”

    Duane Newcomb - Author

  • “I recommend Gary to those who seek assistance to cope with life’s challenges, or to those who seek to find resources to move on to make a greater contribution to their world. Gary is creative in seeking solutions to the challenges facing all of us. His positive outlook is supported by an energetic commitment to see movement. He is a compassionate listener as he discerns ways in which those he works with can make a positive step in their lives and in the life of the greater community.

    Claire Braun - Pastor
