About Me

Thanks for stopping by.  If you check out my essays, posts, and op-ed pieces, you’ll find that I like to write about messy Christian spirituality, social issues, and family life.  I’ve been published at Fox News Opinion, Washington Post,,, Thriving Family, and Inside Journal.

If you want to read some of my most popular articles, you can find those here.  And if you’d like a weekly recap of what I’ve written, you can subscribe here.

How I Got Started

I spent the first part of my life in rural Mississippi, where I grew up swimming in creeks, climbing trees, and being the class clown in school.  Despite my classroom antics and my general distaste for homework, I always liked it when my English teachers required me to keep a journal, and I started writing a column for my local newspaper in eleventh grade.

Eventually, those journal entries and columns turned into a love of writing, which came in handy when I finished law school and moved to Washington, D.C., to practice law, which certainly involves its fair share of writing.

In D.C., I met my wife, married her, and we had our children. In my free time, I spend time with family, hang out with friends, work out, volunteer at my church, and write.

Why I Write

In 2010, my first child was born, and I found myself wanting to tell strangers about the lessons I was learning every day from being a dad.  So I started blogging, and eventually, I began writing about other things God was showing me.  Basically, I’m looking for God in the ordinary, and I pray that the folks who read my blog will find Him along with me.
