Who am I? What am I doing here?
If I knew the answers to those questions life would be much less complicated and I probably wouldn’t be writing this blog. To start with, I am a follower of Jesus. To me that means I am trying to understand His teaching and live life like He did, though I mess that up pretty regularly. I am a husband, married to my wonderful wife Julie for 14+ years now. I mess that up too. I am also a dad. We have two school-aged children, Jacob and Jessa. Most days I love being a dad, some days I don’t, but I’m working on that as well. Guess what, this dad thing gets messed up a lot as well. I am also someone who likes to do life with other people. I don’t think God put us here to be alone. When he created Adam, he said it was not good that He was alone. This doing life with other people also gets messy, but it is worth it.
So, basically I guess I am someone trying to be like Jesus, making a lot mistakes along the way, and wanting to journey though life with others who are also stumbling along. Want to join me?
