I never knew I could teach until I found myself in a classroom in Kenya with 60 children and no translator. Years later, my absolute favorite thing to do is teach God's Word. I currently work full-time as a children's pastor for a non-profit organization that focuses on outreach in our city. When I am not speaking or working on my book, I enjoy time with my bloodhound and laughing with friends!

Episodes

Contrast Camp Day 1: Life and Death

7/24/2019
More
If contras is the "difference of degree of difference between the lightest and darkest parts of a picture," then what is the difference between life and death itself? The Bible is actually a story of contrast, highlighting the epic adventure of a good God who pursues evil man with the light of His love in the midst of the darkness and we find ourselves in the middle of this story, but we get to choose how it plays out for us.

Contrast Camp Day 2: Relationship over Religion

7/24/2019
More
Why does God pursue us? Is He a control freak? Are we mere puppets on strings? Is following a Jesus about a list of do's and dont's, or is there more? God simply wants a relationship with each of us, and relationship trumps religion every single time. Religion shuts doors while relationship opens them. In the story of the prodigal son, we see the contrast of religion and relationship and what set free was relationship.

Contrast Camp Day 3: Are You In the Game?

7/24/2019
More
How do you spend your life? Every human on the planet has the same amount of time and access to that time/ 365 days in a year, 24 hours in a day, yet 1 life to live. Are you wasting your life building your own sandcastle kingdom? Or are you living a life that will live beyond your human years on this tiny blue dot we find ourselves spinning on?

Contrast Camp Day 4: Freedom Over Shame

7/24/2019
More
When we encounter God and we find ourselves forever wrecked, how do we maintain that heart change? How do we ensure that it wasn't just a camp buzz, conference high, or believe the lie that nothing actually changed? When I struggle with sin that I once repented of, did Jesus not forgive me or set me free? How do we go home different and truly walk this thing out?

Where Is Jesus

6/30/2019
More
As believers, what's the first thing that we ask when the storm hits? Where is God? Why has He left me? Is He not listening to my cries for help? Could it be that our questioning of Jesus, especially in the midst of hard times, points to a deeper issue that we don't fully know who He is? All throughout Scripture, we see story after story of those who have found Jesus right in the middle of their mess, even when they themselves were a hot mess.

Diaries of a Wimpy Gideon

6/30/2019
More
Could it be that our lives are so consumed with self and what others think of us that we are missing out on the bigger picture of God using us to display His glory? Have we exchanged the glory of God for the cheap praise of man? Gideon proves to us that when we believe the truth of who God says we are, then God can rewrite the history books for His glory, fame, and honor.

No Tomb Without a Cross

4/25/2019
More
What does Resurrection Sunday mean for us as believers? Is there more to it than "Dead Jesus, quiet Jesus, alive Jesus, hooray"!? The exact life and death and resurrection of Jesus was actually a blueprint for you and I and yet, we often want the resurrection power life without first dying to self. There could be no empty tomb without first a crucifixion. Only in the dying of ourselves and sinful, selfish ways will we be resurrected with Christ and find the newness and abundance of life that...

Wee Little Men and Whataburger Wrappers

3/26/2019
More
God created each of us to live legendary lives; lives that are full and rich, far bigger than anything we could ever hope for or imagine. What if our tiny stories of pain and brokenness were actually apart of something much bigger that we can't always see and understand? We will never live out the part we have to play in this big story if we don't understand the Story that's being written and you cannot possibly understand the Story when you don't know the Author. Because there are going to...

Good and Hard Soil

3/26/2019
More
If God's Word doesn't return void and is powerful and active, then why do we often not see good fruit growing in our lives? We often waste incredible seeds of truth that are planted in our hearts not because it's too high and lofty or something that is unattainable for us to grasp, but simply because the soil of our hearts is hard instead of being good soil.

Positions and Perspectives

2/18/2019
More
Your position determines your perspective and your perspective shifts everything. There are countless examples of people in the Scripture who found themselves in precarious positions and yet what they held to be true deep in their hearts, is what affected them most in their outcome because how we see and view the things of life greatly affects how we live our lives.

2/18/2019
More

Living Water

2/18/2019
More
Anytime you and I drink from something or someone other than Jesus, we will not only be thirsty but we will end up being dehydrated. Jesus is the Living Water and only He can satisfy the deepest longings our hearts and souls. The reason we are thirsty is not because Jesus isn't better or good enough, but because we are drinking from the wrong water source.

Recalibrated

2/18/2019
More
We often need to be recalibrated to who we are, whose we are, and what our lives as God's children are to look like. Can we say with confidence that God can indeed rescue, but even if He does not, He is still good and He is still God and we will still do the right thing?

The Tension of Christmas

2/18/2019
More
