To the parent with mental illness:

Imagine this: you're playing with two of the most important people in your world. The two year old is giggling his head off as he and his 4yo sister try to 'boop' your nose. You too are having fun. Suddenly, you're under attack. You're pinned down, suffocating under the pressure on your chest. You go... Continue Reading →

A hole in the head

We often hear about biblical heroes doing amazing deeds. Performing miracles, saving nations, changing the hearts of kings. However there's one story that sticks out to me more than any other. About someone so fragile destroying a powerful enemy and saving an entire nation inchained. No it wasn't David. It wasn't any other man mentioned... Continue Reading →

If this is what it means to love yourself, I hope you believe that you're not broken when you bleed. If this is the day you see hope in your soul, I pray you see you are loved even when you say you'll never be. Forsaken is the feeling like you can't be valued. Your... Continue Reading →

Learning To Believe

Everyday we need to encourage ourselves that we can do it, change is a progression, not towards perfection, but being comfortable in your... Continue Reading →

Imitating Intimacy

Often other guys ask what's wrong with me. They mistake me as being homosexual because I treat women differently. I don't "check out" random women who are pretty. I don't complain about my wife. I look at women entirely differently. In fact, and it's sad to say, differently than even other Christian men. All of... Continue Reading →
