Client Testimonials

Our original motivation for meeting with DayStar Ministries was our children. We needed understanding how to guide them through some negative circumstances our family was encountering.

Through the application of the principles provided to us, we have gained a life changing opportunity. Our marriage is better, our children are better and we have confidence we are growing into the full potential God has planned for our lives.

Dr. Sirstad didn’t fix our problems, but he equipped and encouraged us with tools to overcome the circumstances we were facing in our family, in ministry and as well as individually. His biblical and practical approach made the goals throughout our time with him achievable.

We highly recommend Dr. Daniel Sirstad of DayStar Ministries. God has given him a gift to counsel people through their obstacles to be victorious in Christ!
