I grew up in Orange County CA as a very apt rebel. Being the "man of the house" at 14 was more than this kid could handle. I rejected Christianity despite knowing without a doubt it's veracity. I was the kid who mocked Christians when I saw them on the roads. But God....oh those two words! At 24 I was radically transformed by a Sovereign God. Today I'm just a simple guy zealous about my Lord while walking in truth. I've spent most of my life under the shadow of Grace Community Church and the faithful teaching that has come from GCC and The Master's Seminary. For reference sake, I am a Doctrines of Grace guy, all five without apology. I met my dearest bride at a bible study in 1994 and quickly married her before she thought twice. I currently live north of L.A. in the mountains with my wife, 2 children and our critters.
I lived my life as a false convert from the age of 5 until I was 33. In February 2004 God reached down and knocked me to my knees. He snatched me from out of a pit of death and sin which I was dragging my family. I was on the outside, in public, everything I was supposed to be, but in private and on the inside I was a wretched and wicked man. I have grown in the 10 years since then. I am nowhere near where I should be, not by a long shot. I strive everyday but at the same time I fail. It is only the work of God that holds me and I joyfully rest in His strong grip as I walk the path He has blazed for me. I hope my offerings by way of my articles compel you to pursue God and pursue holiness, without which you will not see the Lord. I pray my words will push you to find your joy alone in Christ. SOLI DEO GLORIA!
