Brothers & Sisters... fellow HEIRS of God... we are under attack.

The world wants to silence you, belittle you, distort your identity, and destroy your strength in God's kingdom and as Christian warriors in the world.

But God.

But God has so much more for you and for me.

And our families, friends, communities, and our God needs us to not sit as slaves to culture, politics, or sin, but to Stand as heirs of God through Christ! (Ref: Romans 8:17)

I'm here to encourage you, to sharpen you, and to join with you (through truth, authenticity and even humor) within the authority and strength God gives us, so that we may live in the fullness God has for us here on earth and eternity to come.

And guess what? No matter how hard you fight for it, your WORTH only comes from God.

So join me as we do life together in community and let's discover together what it truly means to be FREE and live life to the fullest.

Nobody's perfect. And that's why together, we are stronger.

I'm proud of you. I'm here for you. And God's not given up on you (and never will).

Your brother,


“And since we are his true children, we qualify to share all his treasures, for indeed, we are heirs of God himself. And since we are joined to Christ, we also inherit all that he is and all that he has. We will experience being co-glorified with him provided that we accept his sufferings as our own.”

Romans 8:17 TPT

Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him.

- James 1:12 ESV
