From Boy to Man

If you are reading this article, you probably already know the clichés I’m about to spout: “God has called you to be greater”, “The media portrays men as egotistical and prideful”, and so on. It’s always been said – but when push comes to shove, we, as men, don’t really understand the gravity of what […]

You Are Loved

Love requires sacrifice. We all know this. This line has been engraved in our heads for so long. We know that in our friendships, family, faith, and relationships sacrifices need to be made in order to offer the best versions of ourselves to whoever we are loving.

Romans 15:13

“Rycon season” [Regional Youth Conference] is notorious for being one of the busiest times of the year, and maybe even considered the most hectic time. This year was no different for me.

My Family and I

I don’t know about you, but I love my family! I always get excited whenever I get the chance to share about them because they are God’s greatest gift to me.  My family consists of 4 people who love to spend time with each other.  There is my dad, who is the most selfless man […]
