I live in the greater Denver area with my wife Jodi and four kids. Jodi and I both grew up in Des Moines, Iowa in evangelical churches. Seriously, we were the family that was there every time the doors were open. After we married in 1997, we moved to Chicago to attend Trinity where I received a degree in Biblical Studies.
Like all good Biblical Studies students I went to seminary, also at Trinity. But that was when I started to feel something missing in my life. We had tremendous upheaval in both of our families from health problems to divorce, relational issues to the exhaustion after our first child’s birth. In it all, I wondered where was God? Why was I not experiencing the abundant life Scripture promised?
God is never far and always working even if we can’t see him. Jodi and I began to develop relationships with some people who were into this thing called “spiritual formation” which sounded nebulous and strange to us. Really, though, they were teaching us the ancient ways of interacting with God that millions of Christians in centuries past used. We learned that you could know a lot about God and not know Him at at all.
After a short hiatus (three years and two kids!) we moved to Denver to finish my Master of Divinity, with an emphasis in spiritual formation.
I wish I could tell you that was the best time of my life but seminary was far more challenging than that. Not the schoolwork. I loved that part. The lifework of making money, trying to raise a small family, and keep a marriage in tact nearly sunk my ship and when it was over we had a number of holes to patch up. It turns out that navigating the rocky parts of the path is also part of spiritual growth. We had to choose whether we would settle for less, give up, or keep pressing into what God promised whether we felt like it or not.
And that’s where my story meets today. I’m learning as much as I can from as many as I can about God and how to live with Him.
Seldom in life do you get the chance to meet someone who has a powerful story of overcoming fear, adversity, and tragedy. Even less frequent do you meet someone who can deliver that message with life changing impact.
