Who am I?

This is a problematic question at its very core. I know that you’re not searching for an existential exposition on my understanding of who I am as a person, you probably just want to know if I am trustworthy, educated, and worthy of being read.

Let me save you some time.

Am I trustworthy? Well, when people started to “believe” in Jesus in spades at the beginning of the gospel according to John, it is said, “But Jesus did not entrust himself to them, for he knew all people [what was in the heart of man].” You should do the same. Don’t entrust yourself blindly to anyone, especially to me. Test all of my words against Scripture. I’m still learning. I grow in Christ just the same as you. Let’s try to give each other a lot of grace as we stumble upward, shall we?

Am I educated? Does a bachelor’s┬ádegree in Creative Writing from a state college count? I’m praying that God is still in the business of using the weak and foolish things to shame the wise. He is my only boast. That is my only hope.

Should you read these words? I’m not even sure why I asked that question. You should be reading your Bible, or a book by a trusted author or pastor. If you’ve finished with all of those words and you’re still hungry for more, well, then I’m super happy that you’re here. Read on!

If you don’t find me at my favorite coffee shop clicking away on the keyboard, then I’m probably hanging out with my lovely wife. I’m a servant of God first, a husband way second, and if there is any time left over then you could call me a writer. I spend most of my days hanging out with the kids in our neighborhood playing tag, chess, or Cranium. It’s a rough life, but someone’s got to do it.
