In just a couple of pushes, Eden Grace enters her new world, and I was there to witness her take her first breath of air. I wonder what emotions were going through God’s mind as He watched His children take their first breath of air. Was He mesmerized by the beauty of His new creation?… Continue reading Eden Grace, the New Journey
For a pessimist and cynic like me, hope is hard to come by. I tend to view a cup as half-empty over half-full. One day I believe in God and the next day I’m an atheist. But if I lose hope, what do I have to hope for?… Continue reading Hopeful Pessimist
Not too long ago, I’ve shared some of the struggles my wife and I have been going through, specifically with infertility. For about two long years, we’ve been trying to get pregnant. For over a year, Sarah has been to the doctor countless times, going through different testings and medications. After our miscarriage several months… Continue reading A Daddy to Be

Needless to say, we’ve accumulated many bills. Finding a part-time job has proved to be difficult. Employers rarely… Continue reading A Difficult Journey
Perhaps God does not find favor with me. He loves me, at least that’s what I’m told. But He need not like me. Why should He? If anything else I probably annoy Him. I question His existence, wonder whether or not the Bible carries His Word, think twice about the claims of Jesus’ divinity. And… Continue reading Does God Like Me? Probably Not.
For years Sarah and I have been thinking about what we could do to keep Jesus at the center of Christmas. As it turns out, it’s difficult to counteract the consumer culture surrounding this holiday.… Continue reading What does Christmas Have to Do With Jesus Anyway?
I lost my job… This isn’t a surprise. The company was beyond rolling down the hill. It was hanging on the edge of the cliff by a finger. What did surprise me, however, was the timing. In a meeting on Thursday, the CEO told us that as of next week, the company will no longer… Continue reading I Ain’t Got No Job
