“We live by faith, not by sight.” – 2 Corinthians 5:7.
That’s the life verse for our family. We try to live by faith, not by sight. It’s not always easy to do. In 2001, Sara and I got married. At the time, I was a sports writer for a community newspaper. I did pretty well too. Things were going great, then, in 2002, God began calling me to ministry. I surrendered to the call and took my first church position—a part-time youth ministry position. Things were going great there too. The youth group was growing. My wife finished grad school. In 2006 God began tugging again—this time for full-time ministry. In 2007, I accepted that call too, uprooting our lives to move to Eastern Kentucky for a full-time youth ministry position. In 2008, Sara and I had a daughter, Elizabeth. In 2010, we were serving at a church and things were going great. Yep, you guessed it, God called again. This time he led us to Western Kentucky to be nearer to my wife’s family. We didn’t know it at the time, but the next three years would see us deal with death and illness with Sara’s family. In 2014, things were going great again. We served in a great church ministering to youth. Sara was teaching. Elizabeth was playing soccer and dancing. I published my first novel, Sheep Among Wolves. Then God called. He wanted me to be a pastor. So, we answered that call once again and moved to Glasford, Illinois to serve as senior pastor. We also blessed with the birth of our son, Anakin. We live by faith, not by sight. I hope you’ll join us on the journey.
