Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here!

It’s my passion to encourage others in their faith journey through writing and speaking. I’m likewise inspired by my family, friends, and you—my fellow sojourners—as we walk through this life together. It’s my hope that the words among these pages will be a friendly hug to fill your soul and buoy your spirit.

Stay a while, pour some tea, and browse through my blogs. Visit often and make yourself at home. Most of all, feel refreshed and blessed in the things of the Lord.

Released September 17th, 2019: One More Tomorrow
