Welcome to the site! I have been writing, ruminating, and rambling for years. In the fall of 2017, I had to begin a blog for my Gospel of John class during my undergraduate studies. I grew to enjoy the medium and decided to continue blogging. As a bonus to this site, I have included the original posts from the John blog. With messy inconsistency, I write a couple of articles per week. Early in the week, expect a piece of a more theological bent. At the end of the week I have a column called “From the Hermitage” is comprised of reflective prose pieces that feel like we are having a conversation over tea or coffee in my study.
My other social media includes Instagram, Facebook, and GoodReads.
More about me…
I grew up in the small town of Zachary, LA. I fell in love with reading and writing as I was growing up. I placed my faith in Jesus at a young age. During the fall of 2012, after several difficult circumstances had piled up, I experienced an amazing personal revival. My life was never the same. In early 2013, I began to pursue discipleship and mentorship to prepare for vocational ministry. In 2016, I moved to Lynchburg, VA in order to attend Liberty University. My time at Liberty University was incredibly interesting and fruitful to say the least. My senior year was completed through online study while I worked at my home church, First Baptist Church Zachary. I graduated in the spring of 2019 with my Bachelor of Science in Religion and Music. I am now pursuing a Master of Divinity degree at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. I am a member at Wornall Road Baptist Church.
Through the years, I have written on many subjects: book, film, and album reviews; pens and pencils; and journaling. To an even greater degree, I write on theology, the Church, biblical spirituality, and all manner of topics.
I want to thank you for being interested in this blog. My hope is to make much of Jesus through my writing. I hope you find this blog edifying and a place where great conversations begin.
