Welcome! I’m glad you are here. Truly. You could be doing a lot of other things with your time, so I’m honored you are taking a few minutes to pause here.
I would also love to get to know you as well. I hope you will contact me to share a bit of your story.
I earned a Master of Divinity from Beeson Divinity School. I have over ten years experience in non-profit, church and para-church ministries, including five as a pastor of a community church in Birmingham, Alabama. Now I am a writer and a once and future pastor.
I am married to Jamie. Together, we make a home with our two daughters, M and E, our dog, Isis, and several beloved outdoor cats that have chosen us. Our 100-year-old home typically contains books, houseplants, coffee, bread, breakfast pastries, and craft beer. I’m a Myers-Briggs INTJ and an Enneagram 8, if you are in to that sort of thing.
Here on No Ordinary Life, I write of Jesus – God with us – real and present in the human experience. I write about God with us, and the ways that we experience him in the bodies we inhabit, the days we live, stories we live and share, tell, and re-tell.
I share my personal writing and some of my published essays here. I hope that you find that you too have No Ordinary Life. I hope you find this to be a thought-provoking space of rest, honesty, encouragement, and grace.
