I don’t claim to be an expert on life or on counseling others, but a fellow traveler on the trails of life. Life is like a trail, with its peaks and valleys, its unexpected turns, its smooth and rocky terrain, its change of scenes and seasons, its wonders and its wanderings. It never seems to end, and I’m excited to see what lies over the next hill. So join with me as we explore this life together, and as we meet adventures and challenges along the way.
Probably the best Bible verse to define this blog is Ecclesiastes 4: 9-12:
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
I want to walk through this life with you. Sometimes behind you, sometimes ahead, but most of the time–beside you. Like iron sharpens iron, we can all learn from and encourage each other.
I encourage everyone to be involved with community. First with your church or small group, because we really need that face-to-face interaction and accountability. But please consider this blog an extension of your immediate community. And, who knows, maybe some of us will become friends and meet each other face-to-face in the future.
Here are the primary areas I focus on:
Spiritual Growth and Personal Development-living up to our God-given potential.
Creative Writing – I enjoy entertaining and educating others through writing.
Influencing others through our leadership and creativity – God makes us all unique. Let’s help each other achieve more in life.
Leading and loving our families – Whatever we do or wherever we go, our families need to come first. Let’s help each other be better parents, sons and daughters.
Enjoying the outdoors and being a good steward – The outdoors continues to inspire me, and it teaches important life lessons.
I will discuss a variety of topics on this blog, but the main thread will be about community and spiritual growth. I hope that we can make a connection and find some things in common. Please jump into the discussion anytime.
Who Am I?
I am a Christ-follower, an engineer by trade, a part-time writer, an author and an outdoorsmen. I’m just an ordinary guy. No theology degrees, no special credentials. I enjoy flexing my creativity through writing, blogging and arts & crafts. I look forward to hearing your opinions and seeking your perspective. Please come walk with us as we head down the trail.
Thank you for visiting this blog!
