About me: My name is Andrew. I have two preschool boys, eight teenage girls, a wife, a dog, and camera. I live in Boys Town, Nebraska. I enjoy storytelling, whether it be through writing or through photography.
About the Blog: I have few of blogs these days, but this one is used for my more thoughtful posts, ones in which I have taken the time to step back and think for a while before writing. That means that I do not post here incredibly often, however, I do post every day in response to WordPress’s daily one word prompt on another blog. If you’re interested you can visit that blog here. I also have a blog in which I post daily photos on a regular basis, and you can see that one at Andrews.photos.
Bio: 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 December of 2014. My wife Sarah and I were married in 2010 and we have two sons, Micah and Ezra.
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.
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 live in a big apartment with eight at-risk teenage girls. We love our job, and everyday is adventure!
