(7 Minute Read) Last month my friend asked me to write a guest post on her blog Dear Tizaporah for her “Fully Man” series. The series was centered around the question, “When did you realize you were becoming a man?” The following post is what I wrote: a letter to my thirteen-year-old self. If you […]Read more "To Be A Son"
(3 Minute Read) A couple of weeks ago I read through the book of Acts. I’d never actually read it in-depth so I decided to spend the first couple of weeks post-Easter diving into what the disciples and followers of Jesus did right after his resurrection. I was blown away by what I discovered. So […]Read more "Actions"
(3 Minute Read) In spite of nearly every person on earth offering up their opinion on the coronavirus, I want to give you mine. This will be a quick post because I don’t want to add to the noise and the clutter of life, so if you feel overwhelmed by the amount of opinions you […]Read more "Me, You, and the Coronavirus"
I know it’s the middle of October and summer was over many months ago, but I’ve really wanted to share some thoughts from this summer and I’ve unfortunately let time get away from me. So here are a few things I learned from the summer of 2018. I went back home to intern at my […]Read more "I’m Learning"
I know I haven’t written in awhile, but I’ve been thinking a lot. Lately, I’ve really been thinking quite a lot about identity and how significant it is in our lives. It plays such a huge role in shaping us and motivating us within every situation of life, but I think we often times forget […]Read more "Identity"
Uganda, Africa. 2018. It has taken me a long time to even think about writing about our trip to Africa (or write at all, really), and although I’ve now thought about it a few times, I don’t know how to put it into words, really. But I’m going to try. There was so much that […]Read more "Becoming A Child, Again"
A couple of weeks ago I was sitting in class and we were watching a debate between an atheist and a theologian. Both of them were brilliant, absolutely brilliant men, with Doctorate degrees, and the debate was very interesting, with both sides presenting conflicting but still intertwining points. What I mean is that science and […]Read more "Homesick"
This is a pretty personal post but I think it’s one of those things that I just need to share. I’ve never really struggled with body image issues or self-esteem, I’m a fairly confident person, but there is one thing that continues to nag at me. It has to do with skinny jeans. I love […]Read more "Skinny Jeans"
To introduce this post I want to tell a story. The story is of a man who went to battle and won many, many victories. He was a fearless warrior who seemed invincible because of his ability to leave battle without any injury. But one day, he was pierced by an arrow that had split […]Read more "Band-Aid Effect"
Our sexuality is at an all time crossfire. With the world giving us this “do what you feel” mentality it’s no wonder we are seeing so many sexual harassment and assault cases arising. We say, “Do what makes you happy” or “Do what you feel” but then when someone does what they feel and it […]Read more "Scandalous Times"
