I am an attorney and academic writer with training as a minister. Hailing from Nashville, I currently work for the federal government in Kentucky. I am the author of Heaven's Muscle and the forthcoming book My Body Is a Weapon. I am blessed with a unique wife and three entertaining sons.
My mission is to encourage people to love in spite of their pain, to sense the closeness of God despite their doubts, and to glimpse their full potential in Christ. I do this by offering myself as a faithful conduit - a conduit of love flowing from the heart of God and of wisdom flowing from his scriptures.

After earning bachelor's and master's degrees in biblical studies from a conservative Christian college, I abruptly became an atheist, then an agnostic for almost three years. The circumstances surrounding my marriage rekindled my faith, and I returned to school and earned my M.Div. My plans on pursuing a doctorate fell through, and I obtained an exciting job as a campus minister in Tallahassee Florida, where I lived for three years. After all three of my sons were born, I applied to law School at Vanderbilt. My wife became very ill during this time and the strain on our marriage was immense. But suddenly supernatural events changed everything. You can read all about this story and how God transformed our lives and showed us the power he's made available to all his children in HEAVEN'S MUSCLE. Thanks!
