I grew up in my Hometown of Cary, North Carolina as the youngest of three kids. My family seemed solid, and well off, until I entered middle school and my parents divorced. Right about the same time the housing market crashed and the affluence I had grown used to was taken a way from me. To put it bluntly I was falling and searching for something to grab a hold of.
You see I had always gone to church as a kid, we were a southern family – that is just what you do. I attended all of the camps and retreats that were open to me and I am sure that at one of these weeks away, someone asked me to “pray the prayer” and “ask Jesus into my heart” and I become a Christian. But that was the extent of it for me, being a good kid, nothing in my life really changed. And I believe, to this day, that if God hadn’t shaken things up I would still be living a very comfortable, but pointless life.
When my parents divorced it seemed as though God was beginning to shake me from my foundation, to shake me until I was so desperately disoriented that I no where else to turn to but to him for support. As I started to question what I had known, I remember there were some men in my life who kept telling me that God had something amazing in store for my life. That if I would go all in for him, that I would not only have a life beyond earth – but that I would also be able to experience the most fulfilling type of life possible here on earth: a life spent pursuing God. I decided that if Jesus went all in on the cross for me, that I would go all in with my life following him.

In addition to using the site to connect with others, I also occasionally write about other things I care about. They can range from my work in Ministry and Design to other topics in Travel, Faith and any thing else of interest.
Take a look below at what I’ve been thinking about recently.

“One of these days some simple soul will pick up the Book of God, read it, and believe it. Then the rest of us will be embarrassed.”
– Leonard Ravenhill
When it comes to faith, I try to be as authentic as possible. Speaking past the one-liners and Christian platitudes that can leave people feeling dry. I know what it feels like to feel spent, but still have responsibilities as a leader.
For me, Faith is about a constant return to the foot of the cross, and allowing God to work in whatever ways he sees fit. That, of course, is easier said than done.
I serve at the Fellowship of Christian Athletes in the Triangle. I get to inves directly in the lives of students, coaches, and athletes across North Carolina.
Along with some of my good friends, I founded JesusThoughts, a ministry to Equip People to Encounter God.

Over the years I have picked up Web Design as a hobby. After building many websites for myself and others, I have gotten pretty good at it. If you have a site you need designed, I would be honored to help you. Every now and then I write about my experiences too. If you’re a designer like me, or want to do it yourself, take a look at the resource bar.
I’ve worked one a few different sites recently, you can see some of of them below. I am not a hardcore coder. I build my sites on a WordPress platform using what I consider to be the best theme out there. The X Theme. I don’t get paid for that endorsement, thats how much I love it!
