I am a Marketing/Social Media Lead and Fundraiser. Christ-follower. I am married to an incredible wife with three awesome kids. Earned my MBA from Kennesaw State University, my Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and a BS from Samford University. Originally from Tallahassee, Florida.
This blog is a place for me to post my thoughts, struggles and inspiration. Isaiah 61 speaks of those who will undergo great struggles and disappointments. Isaiah is offering his hearers/readers HOPE by encouraging them their hardships are not to be wasted. Their pain and suffering will be redeemed so they “will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of God’s splendor.” The process of becoming an “oak of righteousness” can be very messy in real life. I strive to be an “Oak of righteousness” as I seek to navigate this messy life. My life is committed to investing in others so they too can become “oaks of righteousness.”
Writing/blogging is a way for me to express what God is teaching me. May you be richly blessed!
