About life: For me, life moves fast and my schedule keeps me busy that I don’t often take time to reflect. It’s not hard for me to get caught up with what’s going on at this very moment or preparing for the next moment. I’ve found that when that happens I fail to look at the bigger picture. But when I decide to take a step back and look at life as a whole, my understanding of the world around me because much more balanced.

About the Blog: This blog is not focused on one topic or issue. It’s simply meant to be a momentary pause of reflection. I write about faith, being a dad, current events, and other topics that get my wheels turning. Oftentimes this blog is simply me working through issues or topics that I want to process and ramble about publicly.

In January 2016 our son Micah was diagnosed with a very rare genetic syndrome called Kabuki Syndrome. I wrote about his journey to diagnosis and continue to write regularly about Micah’s progress on the blog.

Me and my wife, Sarah – 2010

About me: I was born in Omaha, Nebraska. My family moved into a south suburb of Indianapolis, Indiana when I was five years old and I spent the rest of my childhood and teenage years growing up there. I attended Pensacola Christian College in Pensacola, Florida from 2005-2009 graduating in May 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in Bible with a concentration in Missions and a minor in Biblical Languages. In 2012, I graduated with my Master of Divinity from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. I have nearly completed a Masters of Arts in Counseling Ministries from Trinity as well. After living in Chicago and the Chicagoland area for a little over five years, we moved to Omaha, Nebraska in January of 2015. My wife Sarah and I were married in 2010 and we have two sons, Micah and Ezra.

In the summer of 2016, my wife and I accepted the position as a family-teaching couple at Boys Town in the Omaha area. We moved to Boys Town at the end of July. I will be blogging from time to time about my experience as a family-teacher.
