For many years, I have wanted, with all my heart, to proclaim the profound and amazing truths of the Christian faith. I know that in this faith is the complete fulfillment of the deepest longings of every human heart; the desire to love and be loved in a heroic way, an overarching and eternal purpose for every life as a whole and for every little decision that gets made, the chance to make a difference in this world and for eternity, and to find the strength to hope and believe and battle to become the person I was truly created to be, which is the one I most deeply want to be. The Gospel not only calls to the deepest longings of our hearts but challenges us intellectually to meditate and understand profound mysteries that are beyond anything we could imagine. It calls us to peace and beauty and goodness. It is what this crazy world needs right now.
And so, with the encouragement of friends and family, I am endeavoring to make what I have to offer available on a larger scale. I want to teach and speak more, I want to do more small group evangelization and I want to try to create a digital platform where others can be taught.
I entrust my hopes and plans to God. I make no pretense of knowing his plans and have no desire but to fulfill the passion he has put in my heart, to know him more deeply and to make him known. Please pray for me in this process, as I am easily distracted, overwhelmed and discouraged. Please pray that I am responsive to his lead and timing and that he will provide exactly what I need when I need it. Pray that God will bless this little work. The fields are truly "ripe unto harvest."
