Category: Christian Faith

I am unapologetically, critically Christian, and this channel is where I consider the complexities of my faith and the ways I live it out in my day-to-day existence.

Love is Beautiful.

I met my wife when I was 12 years old, and I started dating her when I was 17 years old. Yes, we were high school sweethearts. Shannon is the only girl that I've ever dated (unless you count that one awkward time when I went to a dance with a fan of my comedy... but that's […]

Imitation Masculinity

If you know me, you know that I'm not a super masculine guy. Let me give you some examples: I would rather watch basketball than play it. I don't lift weights (or even work out, really). I am not the "boss" of my wife. I don't have "my" football team that I cheer for. I […]

Change on Purpose

I've got crap in my life. I'm a screw-up. I hold grudges. I bend the truth. I'm opinionated and rub it in people's faces. I break things and try to hide them so no one finds out. I take so much pride in my work that I unfairly criticize the honest work of others. I […]
