Who We Are

Established in 2001 just 1 hour from Boise, Living In the Light Ministries is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt Christian organization born out of a vision given to Mike and Iris Gallegos to teach God’s people how to rely on Jesus in their marriages.

Mike and Iris’ burden for marriages grew out of the pain involved with having early marriages fail & feeling God’s heartbreak over the fragmentation of families.

They have been following Jesus since their conversion experience 30 years ago, have been married 35 years and have 4 grown children. Iris is a retired clinical social worker and Mike is a retired certified rehabilitation counselor.

Their love for Jesus is seen in their total dedication to following God’s call. They mentor and minister to individuals and couples weekly & lead small group retreats. Their ministry has taken them to Peru, Finland, Mexico and Russia.

With the help of many faithful friends, they have answered God’s call to build a place where God’s people can come for healing, reconciliation and restoration through couples ministry, small group retreats or practicing the spiritual disciplines of solitude and silence.



We provide a place to escape from the noise. A place to recover from the outside influences and hear God's voice, and sometimes even your own.


We want to help you restore your relationship, first with God, and then with the other important people in your life.

Counseling / Mentoring

We'll give you the training and sources to turn to when life gets rough again, because it will.
