About

Hey there — thanks for checking out my website. If you take a look at my essays, posts, op-ed pieces, and bi-monthly emails, you’ll find messages about how God is at work in the ordinary of our lives.

My journey to becoming a writer began in 2010 when my first child was born. I found myself wanting to tell strangers about the lessons I was learning every day from being a dad. So I started blogging, kept at it for a long time, and eventually, I got new opportunities to share beyond my blog.

Why I write: Regardless of who’s in the audience, the thing that makes me feel like a success is when people tell me that I’ve helped them see God at work in the ordinary. If you’re interested in noticing God in the ordinary of your life, click here for a bi-monthly email and hopefully, my articles will offer some insights.

Where I’ve appeared: My writing has appeared at FoxNews.com, Washington Post, ChristianityToday.com, Thriving Family, and Boundless.org. I’ve appeared on Fox and Friends, Sunrise (one of Australia’s morning shows), and I’m a regular guest on The Boundless Show. I’ve also received two Evangelical Press Association awards for my writing.

My book: Confessions of a Happily Married Man (pre-order here) is an invitation for readers to walk through a day in the life of their marriage, take a second look at their own stories, and pay attention to the ways God may be at work. As you learn along with my wife and me in the book, you’ll gradually become more self-aware along with us, increasingly grateful for your marriage, and surprised to discover what God has been doing in the middle of it all.

Opportunity for you: God is at work in your life, usually in the ordinary. It’s not that you don’t want to see it; you may just need some help at paying attention to it. Like I mentioned before, the best way I can help is writing, and the best way you can read my writing is by clicking here to sign up for my bi-monthly update.

Find me online: If you’d like to see more of my writing, you can check out my Facebook page or follow me on Twitter @MrJoshuaRogers.  You can also subscribe to a spam-free recap of what I’ve written by clicking here.

How to contact me: If you’re interested in contacting me, use this address: Joshua@JoshuaRogers.com.  You can also subscribe to my bi-monthly email and just hit reply. I will definitely read your email, but pardon me if I don’t respond quickly. I’ll definitely get to it, but being a family man, a full-time attorney, and writer makes it a challenge to be prompt about it.

Thanks for checking out my writing and God bless you as you seek Him in the ordinary of your life.


Beliefs

People occasionally write to me and ask what I believe. I am a Christian and I have been since a young age. I attend a non-denominational, theologically conservative church. The best summary of my beliefs can be found in the 1,700-year-old confession of faith known as the Nicene Creed.

WE BELIEVE in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father.
Through Him all things were made.

For us and for our salvation
He came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
He became incarnate from the virgin Mary,
and was made man.

For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
He suffered death and was buried.
On the third day He rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and His kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son He is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy universal and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come.

Amen.
