It’s the night before my 33rd birthday. Some have asked me what I’d like as a gift, but it’s hard to answer that question. Understand, it’s easy to list things I want, but I already have everything that makes a heart and a life full. When I turn 33 I will have a beautiful wife, two beautiful boys, a wonderful family, a loving God, and another day to savor and live in the gift that it all is. When happy birthday is sung, it is the happiest birthday. When I blow out the candles on the cake, every wish has already come true.
Then, there is that mysterious way that God can take something that’s full and add even more to it. I look forward to this next year, and all that God has in store.

I am married to the love of my life, and am a father to four beautiful children.
It’s been made clear to me that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. In the pursuit for truth and meaning, I have found there is no higher calling one can aspire to than to do that which God has planned for them.
When writing "response" pieces (as opposed to some personal work I post here), I seek to develop content that doesn’t merely take a stance (“for” or “against”), but goes to the heart of the matter to reveal an ethic that speaks louder than opinion. Developing content for A Response gives me great satisfaction as I discern and highlight overlooked truths in situations that confront us on a daily basis. View all posts by A Response
