I love God and love people.
I’m after the best possible life. And I’m after that life for me and for the people around me.
These motivations have led me to my ongoing search for God, which has led me to Christ, which has led back to God, which has somehow given me a taste of the life I long for.
Currently, I want to be just like Christ in heart, character, mission, and priorities. And I’m working to believe in and surrender to him, his teachings, his ways, and his message.
It has made me into a joyfully suffering soul.
Joyful, because I am quite satisfied in the adventurous life I have. And quite discontent in my unsatisfied longing for more.
The current cast of characters from whom I find myself learning most often and most intimately include Carrie, Shade, Callie, and Jakin – my wife, my son, my daughter, and my son. They are my favorite and most terrifying teachers.
I confess that I write out of my longing to be real, to be heard, to love others, to be tested, to be sharpened, and to explore what matters.
I have found truth, on occasion. Enough to know that I have found very little of it, and what I have found is incomplete. Therefore, I’m on the move looking for what is truer.
So that I can become truer.
