I'm Moving!!!

I have been writing on blogspot for several years. It has been a great start to gain momentum in my writing and I feel like I have found my groove. 

I have also been working on a book, actually a couple books, for a couple years. I am in the final stages of my first book entitled Made For More. I am really excited and there will be more updates going forward.

I have created a private Facebook group for people interested in joining my book launch team. If you're interested, send me a message on Facebook and I'll get you connected.

Now, this is the big news...

Since I am getting ready to enter the final stages of my book

2 Ways To Leave A Lasting Legacy

My wife’s grandmother has been in the hospital. She is in her mid-90’s and, up until her admittance into the hospital, has been going strong. It has been a heavy load on the family, but it has been a wonderful experience to see the family pulling together to care and nurture a woman who has cared and nurtured all of them for so many years.

Her grandmother is a wonderful woman and a testimony of faith and perseverance. Every time you enter her home you are offered something to eat or drink. She does not want to sit down and strives to serve everyone who comes through her door. She is a wonderful example of a servant.

Her nephew came into visit her yesterday and said a beautiful prayer over her which included these words: “Lord God, bless your servant. She has cared for so many and has shown your love. Continue to give her your love and care.”

Her legacy is that of a strong woman who has loved and cared for so many, whether they were family or not.

Why The World’s Pain Is Our Pain And How To Respond

“…the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now. And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved.”-Romans 8:21-24

As I shared the video of the 5 year old boy who was pulled out of the rubble from a Syrian airstrike, my heart was and is still broken. I can only imagine the pain his family is feeling and the emotional scars that child will hold on to forever. The look of confusion and fear speaks enough. We cannot live in a world that allows a child to experience this pain in their life. (Hard to watch:

The crazy thing is, right now, many around the world are watching the Olympic games. These games were established to celebrate athletes from all over the world and bring countries together in competition and celebrate humanity. I have been watching these very games, making funny comments, and finding joy in the experience.

After seeing the images of the sorrow, I can’t bring myself to watch the games right now. I most likely will go back to them, but I had to turn them off for this time. I know this is not a new tragedy in Syria, this happens almost every day, but it is painful nonetheless. How can I strive for empathy if I can’t step away from what brings me happiness for a little while?

3 Important Reasons To Support Your Spouse

“‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.”-Ephesians 5:30-33

Right now, I am sitting in a hotel room in New Jersey. I’m not here for a business meeting. I’m not here for an interview. I’m not here for me. I’m here for my wife.

My wife is a Physician Assistant. She is currently serving as a PA in pediatrician’s office. She loves her job. She is passionate about her work with children, but she is also very passionate about serving new mothers.

She wants to assist new mothers in the birthing process by giving them support, encouragement, and love. So, for the next few days, she is at a conference to enhance her knowledge of breastfeeding in order to advance her steps in becoming a lactation consultant.

I seriously would not have ever thought I would take a six hour drive for such a conference, but I have.


Simple: I love and support my wife.
