About Jim

Empowered living

Jim Hohnberger, a distinguished author and the co-founder of Empowered Living Ministries, was born in 1948 in Appleton, Wisconsin, a town 25 miles south of Green Bay. Hohnberger earned a degree in Conservation, Forestry and Land Planning from Michigan Technological University before marrying his high school sweet-heart, Sally, in 1972.

Originally Jim had little to no interest in religious matters as he felt as though there was a great deal of hypocrisy present. But Jim’s life began to change for the better and after a friend got him interested in studying the Bible, he and Sally sold everything and moved to Glacier National Park in Montana. 

A Ministry Grew

They bought a little log cabin in the wilderness for their growing family, that now included two young boys aged 4 and 6 at the time. After moving 50 miles from pavement and electricity, they found what they had been missing – that God was in fact real, and was ever present, full of wisdom, and goodness.

God had many changes in mind for Hohnberger. First, by asking him to be the priest of his own home. Hohnberger credits God for improving his marriage and teaching his family how to be Christ-centered. Out of this experience, a ministry grew. It was never the Hohnberger’s intent to form a ministry, but it was certainly in God’s plan.

Over the years, Jim and Sally Hohnberger have travelled all over the United States, and to more than 20 countries around the world to share what God has taught them about marriage, raising children, and life.
