About Chris Grainger

The journey of creating The Lion Within Us has been fueled by my desire to help others and glorify God. I am blessed to be in several leadership positions in a professional and spiritual capacity. First and foremost, I’m a devoted husband to a loving wife, a true “Proverbs 31” Woman and the strongest person I know. Together, we lead a family of three beautiful girls. I’m currently a deacon at my church and a Certified Financial Coach. Professionally, I work as an Engineering and Services Manager in Raleigh, North Carolina.

There was a point in time where my life was spiraling out of control and I felt helpless. By the Grace of God and sheer willpower, I was able to take inventory of my life, analyze and improve my habits, and become the man that God has called me to be. Though I’ve faced difficult storms involving love and loss, I’ve been blessed beyond measure and God has never left my side. I want to use my testimony to encourage others and let them know that they too can find joy and fulfillment in the midst of the most difficult storm.
