A Neat Trick to Cleanly Highlight a Document for Presentation

Over the summer I interned at the Wake County Public Defender’s office. I developed a bit of an expertise in working with Electronically Stored Information (“ESI”). Those of you in the law know that ESI is a tremendous part of any type of litigation–both civil and criminal. Working on this case, I knew we would need to present portions of …

Billy Graham

This morning we lost one of the legends of Christianity. Billy Graham has died at the age of 99. Mr. Graham was an incredible man of faith: humble, caring, compassionate. He preached, not himself, not politics, but the Gospel. Matthew 25:23 seems particularly fitting for Mr. Graham: “His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful …

We are not our GPAs. A reminder to law students.

We have fully entered the Spring semester here at Wake Forest, and first year law students like myself are wrestling with new questions, challenges, and doubt about who they are and what they are capable of. I was reminded of an apt analogy watching the super bowl this weekend. You see, every single player on a professional football team, from …

Drum Major Instinct

A few years ago, while at JesusThoughts, I worked on an Album called JesusJams. These were sermons from various speakers, edited down and placed over a backing track. We made and released several tracks, but never released one by Martin Luther King Jr. that we titled “Drum Major Instinct.” In the sermon King talks about pride and its pervasive impact …

Scoring at the 2017 Middle School Mock Trial Competition

Folks who know me well know that I love working with students. This weekend, after finishing up my last final exam of my first semester of law school, a friend and I drove to Durham to volunteer with the North Carolina Bar Foundation. It was great to be back, at least near, home. I was a scoring judge for the Justice …

Valued. Treasured. Loved. God is Perfect.

In High School, I went to Camp Bigstuf in Daytona Beach, Florida. There is this guy named Andy Stanley, he’s a pretty well known pastor, who every year would speak. One year, I remember this line he kept repeating: The most important thing about you, is what you think about, when you think about God. Human nature is to ignore …

As many of you know, I started a Nonprofit ministry in high school that lasted through college called, JesusThoughts. I wanted to share this track from on of my favorite projects we took on, this is JD Greear on our album, Alpha. Thanks for reading,

My Journey to Choose A Law School

In the middle of last year, somewhere around my trip to Colorado, I decided to go to law school. This was a huge decision that took a lot of prayer and thought, but once I decided to go this route, I jumped in head first. This will be a long post, so if you’re not in the mood to read, …

Creating Mockups for Websites

So I just rebranded my Web Design “business” as 1887 Design. I figured a separate site to advertise my Web Design services may help me gain some new clients (PS, I am super affordable!) During the process, I was looking for a way to showcase my work. You’ve seen what I am a talking about: when a site or app …

Training Leaders Through Trial

I’ve been meaning to share this story for a while. Last school year I served as a huddle coach at one of our local middle schools. As I’ve written about before, I’m now serving as a staff member with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Every Friday morning we would meet together in one of the classrooms and we’d share a …
