    Testimony

    Today is Valentine’s day. You know what would be a good thing to write about today. Love and dating and marriage! I can also talk about how I tried to buy flowers at Ralphs last night at 9pm, because I couldn’t make it in time to get it at Trader Joe’s. Then I didn’t, because the flowers were super expensive. So I bought chocolate instead.. Yeah.. I’m not going to do that even though that’s the whole story. Maybe another time.. Anyways, I will share my personal love story of how I came to know Christ and how I continue to live as a Christian. Fair warning, it’s kind of…

The primary reason that I want to go back to writing is to get better at sharing and teaching topics to other people. I don’t want to be a teacher by any means, but I don’t want to stumble in my words when trying to…

    What Matters

    This post was originally posted on December 6, 2016. It has been edited for the author’s sake and for your’s.. I originally wrote this post to kick off a series called ‘The Fact of the Matter” and labelled it FotM. However, I have stopped that due to the difficulty of the standards that I have set on myself and am helping my friend contribute to this blog with an incredibly ambitious website title. We hope that what we write really does point all things to Christ and that God would use this as a means for you to know Him. “If God gives you truth it is not humble to…
