We don’t have to do this alone, but first, we have to find each other, and that’s hard to do without the light of hope.
Deconstruction, the Evangelical Church, and the Worship of Christian Celebrities
What if we’ve been the problem all along?
Are we sure we understand the concept of “big things for Christ”?
I Don’t Care
Once upon a time, I found Jesus. More accurately, He found me. After spending a really long time not knowing how much I need Him, I finally saw myself for who I was, and I called out to Him in response to His call to me. That was almost seven years ago. I had no […]
The Irony of Sad Songs
For those of you who don’t know, I’m making a record in 2016. I’m really excited. I’ve spent the past two months recording some basic demos for 14+ songs while I wait for responses from potential session musicians and make plans for the crowdfunding campaign.

The Sin of Confession
We say that nobody is perfect, and that applies to us, right? Okay. Good. What about others? Do they have to be perfect, unlike us? Are they held to a higher standard by the Lord than we are, are we better than they, or is our perception of equality severely skewed? I’m by no means saying that we […]
