Benefits of my Work

The chaos in our world creates turmoil in our souls. The overwhelmed and overworked hold a special place in my heart, because I've felt imprisoned by both. 

My work will help you take responsibility for the one life you have, and to experience the abundant life Jesus promises (John 10:10). Mainly, I'm concerned with helping you reconnect with Jesus in increasing and meaningful ways.

If you don't do this inner work to anchor yourself in Jesus, then you will be tossed back and forth by all the difficulties of this life. 

My writing focuses on helping people grow in spiritual and emotional stability. I believe the following topics are essential on this journey:

  • Intentionality

  • Rest

  • Stillness

  • Relationships

I continue to walk my own journey from instability to stability, but I've learned some tremendous lessons along the way. I'd love to share them with you.

If you're new to my work, I'd highly encourage you to start your journey here.

Other things I Love

If you spend time with me, you'll discover that I love:

My family. I love the work I get to do as a pastor, but nothing thrills me more than heading home to Rachel, Justus, Haven, and Atlas.

My friends. Through hard work and a lot more grace from Jesus, my friendships are phenomenal. You'll hear more about them.

Movies. From a blockbuster to an obscure foreign film, I can't get enough. The only thing better than a fine film is enjoying it with friends. 

Backpacking. There's something magical about heading out into the wilderness with everything you need on your back. 

Food. Sushi, anyone?

Books. I like them a lot.

Jesus. I could list many more things that I love, but I hope at my funeral that people say, "Man, he loved Jesus!"
