Welcome To My Blog
Many of you have just started reading my blog and I wanted to share with you a little bit about this blog.
First off. THANK YOU!!!!! Thank you so much for reading and sharing the different posts.
I wanted to take a post and tell you a little about myself and this blog. First let me share with you about myself.
I was born in a Christian home (my father was a pastor my first 9yrs) and raised by amazing parents who demonstrated to me a a strong Christian walk and marriage. I have 3 siblings so there is 4 of us total. There is three boys and one girl. I have a twin brother and we are the oldest.
I became a Christian at around 4 years of age. Having become a Christian at that early age, I often questioned my salvation as I grew up. But looking back I realize that I truly did become a Christian at that time.
While growing up and going to church I learned a lot about the Bible. However all my Bible knowledge was from that and not because of owning my faith for myself. I would often be challenged to read my Bible and would do so for about 2 weeks before getting out of the habit again.
Before my freshman year of college I finally became serious with my faith and started spending consistent time praying and reading the Bible for myself. I soon fell in love with my new relationship with God.
Between my freshman and sophomore year and college, God used this relationship and working at a camp for a summer to call me into full time ministry as a student pastor. I graduated from college with a degree in youth ministry and started an internship at one of the largest student ministries in the country.
I then met my wife and shortly after getting my first ministry position we were married. We have 2 handsome young boys, 2 years old and 8 months.They are my pride and joy. As you can tell I have my hands full. I am extremely blessed to have an amazing wife and family.I have enjoyed being in full-time student ministry for over 5 years.
About this blog
I started this blog as a place to encourage and equip people that are not in my student ministry. This is for the everyday person. I strive to write shorter posts so that you can read a post in five minutes or less. Also, I post about 2-3 times a week. Typically I write one in the first half and one in the second half of the week.
I write articles that will help you grow in your faith and walk with Christ. I also write articles for people in student ministry or people that work with students.
Sometimes I write posts that will equip you with practical truths for today’s topics whether that is on apologetics or a current event. Or maybe this is a post on family or being a parent.
I greatly desire for all to grow in their faith, wether they are a parent, grandparent, student, college/young adult or even someone who is just trying to figure out what Christianity is all about. If I can help you grow in your faith and you in turn can help someone else that that is AWESOME!!
I am passionate about the Word of God and making it applicable in your daily life. Also, I love taking theology or harder topics and making them easier to understand and apply.
It is my desire to equip and encourage you. If there is a way that I can better do that please let me know.
I know that I am not perfect and that I have a long way to go to make this blog the best that it can be. With that said I would love to hear your feedback.
