What I Believe

I believe life has meaning.

I believe this crazy messy painful beautiful world is not a result of random mutation, but rather shows the fingerprints of our Creator.

I believe questions are worth asking, and that answers exist.

I believe in depravity because I've seen the inner workings of mine.

I believe we are all in need of a savior, and we pursue satisfaction of this need regardless of whether we call ourselves believers, atheists, humanists, or scientists.

I believe art, truth, and beauty are love letters from God.

I believe modern life is freaky weird and that most of us struggle to flourish in this age.

I believe Jesus is who he said he was, and who the prophets said he would be.

I believe in belief.


A Bit About Me

The older I get, the more I understand the power of words. Words change lives for good or bad. They can start wars and they can form marriages. They can be seeds of hope or pain. I am amazed by the power of words, and I intend to use them to positively impact other people to the best of my ability.

My first book, Walking Through Walls, is aimed at helping the reader connect the two worlds of work and Christian 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.

I'm a family man with a lovely wife and two wonderful children. I like to write (including poetry), lift weights, train Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and spend time outside.

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