Hello and welcome to my personal blog! Lord willing, today marks the first of many posts in which I aspire to write on topics and subject matter that will bring glory to my Savior, and hopefully be interesting and entertaining to my readers. I have been encouraged by many people in the recent past to start my own personal blog and this site developed in fulfillment of that counsel and to satisfy my own love of writing.
I specifically want to encourage single, young men in avenues of biblical manhood and preparation for effective marriages as godly husbands and fathers. The Lord has turned my heart in recent months toward the ministry of encouraging other young men and I have begun to see a disturbing pattern of departure from the Scriptures by those who profess to be young “men” but maintain the attitudes, disciplines, lifestyles, and non-sacrificial living of little boys. Don’t misunderstand me, I knew this disappointing trend was alive and well – I just (perhaps naively) underestimated how thoroughly it saturates our culture. Through this site, I hope to have at least some small part in revitalizing the push for much-needed influence of the truly Christ-seeking man of God.
Other topics I intend to write on will include theology, politics, literary criticisms, book reviews, author reviews, technology and social media, economics, entrepreneurship, personal news, law school progress, and really anything I feel needs being said 🙂
Finally, most of you are personal friends or acquaintances and are familiar with me as a person, but in case you don’t know me, I will be posting an introductory section on the about page in the very near future.
But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ… – Phil. 3:7-8
