I am a follower of Jesus, a husband to Becky, a father to Kate, Emma and Lucy, and a pastor of Meadowbrook Church in Milwaukee, WI.

I am attracted to people who are honest and authentic (two of the reasons I married my wife). Often, I fear that I’m constantly putting on masks to hide who I really am. God is taking me on a journey of discovery to discover who I really am in Him in order to free me from a life of hiding. He is forming in me the character and mind of Christ, while constantly reminding me that He will finish the work He started in me (Phil 1v6).

I love to read good books and drink good coffee. I love being with people, but also value my alone time. I guess you could say I am an extroverted introvert. I love to run and have run four half-marathons.

On this blog, I write from the perspective of a parent and a pastor. I find these two roles are significantly shaping the way I view life, relationships, and leadership. My hope is that through my work people will holistically grow in their relationship with God and with others.

In addition to this blog I also write for various devotional magazines from LifeWay and Walk Thru the Bible.
