Glory and Joy.

These two words define my life's mission, and they are complementary.

By glory I mean God's glory, and by this I mean I believe God created everything and is the source of everything worth pursuing. He is due awe and glory (which has been also translated as fear) and I hope to bring highlight his glory through my writing, art, business, and just life in general.

Joy is not happiness, though they might feel the same. Joy is seated in the soul, while happiness is more like a pleasing scent on the wind–here for a moment and then gone again. Joy sticks around in dark places, whereas happiness vanishes when times are tough. Joy is magnified in my heart when God's glory is magnified, and thus Glory and Joy.

My first book, Walking Through Walls, is aimed at helping the reader connect the two worlds of work and faith. My second book Show Yourself a Man, is a book which helps men pursue fearless manhood under the kingship of Jesus.

I love art and creativity in various forms. It is a delight to my soul to be creative and to encourage others to do the same. We all have cool stuff inside and it will beautify the world if we'll let it out.

In addition to my writing here, I write (or have written) for The Gospel Coalition, The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, and The Door Church.

I am the COO/EVP of Suntech Building Systems, Inc., a commercial general contractor. I am also the co-founder of Suntech Realty Services, which is the real estate arm of Suntech Building Systems. I believe the marketplace is a mission field and I hope to make a positive impact on those I do business with.

I'm a family man with a lovely wife and two wonderful children. I like to bird hunt, fish, draw, write, lift weights, and train Brazillian jiu-jitsu. 

My hope is to shine light into your life by illuminating the truth.
