The word “evangelical” has many meanings and connotations, most of them negative and most of them having nothing to do with the person and claims of Jesus Christ. This website has three parts. The first part is my attempt to explain what evangelicals believe. If you have a negative impression of evangelicals, you may be surprised by what you read in this section. If you consider yourself an evangelical, you may have trouble explaining what that means. I hope you will find the first section helpful.
The second section explains eight keys that have helped me develop a closer relationship with Jesus. If you are feeling stuck in your Christian walk, or want to go deeper, I believe this section will help you.
The third section I have called The Story of God’s Faithfulness To Me. It is the story of how God took the poor choices I made and habits I formed in my mid-teens to mid-twenties, and the pain those choices and habits caused others, and used all of it for His glory. Along the way, He turned a coward and a quitter into a godly man of character. It is a remarkable story, not because of me, but because of what God did with a very unremarkable person.
If you are suffering in chronic pain, you may want to go to Chapter X of the third section to read about my wife's ten year struggle with daily migraine pain.
This website is posted anonymously because I'm nobody special, just one of many pilgrims on the journey. I want the focus to be where it belongs -- on God.
