I am a college-educated freelance writer who loves Jesus, people and the arts, particularly discourse and literature. I have a degree in psychology, lots of restaurant experience (mainly serving) and a desire to have a vibrant ministry that involves teaching, counseling and evangelism. I would very much like it if I could make my ministry and my livelihood one thing. I enjoy music, social recreation, movies, board games, hiking, camping and biking (not necessarily in that order). I am passionate and energetic. I carry a good measure of gentleness, compassion and personal integrity from my travels with the Lord Jesus. I want my life to honor God and bless others.
I grew up in a godless, abusive alcoholic family "without hope and without God in the world." The pain and confusion of my stunted world propelled me into a life of drug use, social isolation and despondency. Finally, the good Lord found me and brought me out of the ashes into fellowship with His blessed Son. I have learned the hard way that I am a hopeless sinner, bankrupt, hapless and clueless without Jesus at the very center of my life. He is the reason I live and the source of my hope, joy and purpose. I have blessed meaning in life because of Him. I want to be about the Great Commission, sharing the life of Christ with our starving world.
Reading, writing, music, social activities, biking, camping, hiking and movies.

Good morning to a fresh start! Everything is clean. Everything is new-- except his love for you which has been from the beginning. It is more today then it was yesterday and it will be more tomorrow then it is today. He is by your bed as you wake up, ready waiting to love you and listen to you.
