About the author…


Who am I? Hmmmm…

I’m a Christian, a thinking one, who isn’t satisfied with assumptions or irrational thinking. Christ and his Word make sense, are True, and are relevant to the world God created. I want to have the answers for those who doubt that this is true. That said, my logical, academic, sometimes detached thinking needs to be increasingly balanced with the emotional depth and love that comes with a relationship with Christ. My strength is in the mind; my challenge in the heart.

I’m a husband and – soon – the father of an as yet unnamed daughter. Marriage is way better than I even expected and, by God’s grace, not as difficult as some said it would be. 

I’m a teacher. Primarily, I have worked with struggling high schoolers in an alternative setting. This is a difficult population, one that I never expected to work so extensively with. It is, to say the least, a challenge.

I’m a writer. By hobby and increasingly by necessity. The Apostle Paul said that he was compelled to preach the gospel: “Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!” (I Cor. 9:16). This is how I feel about writing. Not perhaps as honorable a passion as Paul’s, but God grants such things as He will.
