Guard Her Heart Syndrome

Over the past few years I’ve noticed a problem among single, Christian guys when it comes to dating. It’s something I like to call “Guard Her Heart Syndrome.” Its symptoms are simple and widespread. Many of us have grown up around this adage when it comes to dating, “Guard her heart.” Guard your heart above all else, for it determines …

The Nazis. Our Countrymen.

Last week was a tumulteous one not just for me, but for everyone. As I am starting Law School at Wake Forest, the world seems to continue to fall to pieces: scandal in the White House, internal political division in congress, outside threats from North Korea, and far right and far left protests across the country. Most notably at the …

My Journey to Choose A Law School

In the middle of last year, somewhere around my trip to Colorado, I decided to go to law school. This was a huge decision that took a lot of prayer and thought, but once I decided to go this route, I jumped in head first. This will be a long post, so if you’re not in the mood to read, …

Having It All Together

Often times they will sing a few worship songs, before picking up their backpacks and heading to class. When I was in high school and FCA did see you at the pole, to be honest, I hated …

Creating Mockups for Websites

So I just rebranded my Web Design “business” as 1887 Design. I figured a separate site to advertise my Web Design services may help me gain some new clients (PS, I am super affordable!) During the process, I was looking for a way to showcase my work. You’ve seen what I am a talking about: when a site or app …

Our Journey (Almost) Across the Country

This past weekend me and two of my closest friends drove across the country (almost) from Raleigh to Chicago and then on to Denver. Here is the story of where we went and how. So I have been very good friends with this fellow named matt since we were both in middle school. Over the past two years, Matt has …

Training Leaders Through Trial

I’ve been meaning to share this story for a while. Last school year I served as a huddle coach at one of our local middle schools. As I’ve written about before, I’m now serving as a staff member with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Every Friday morning we would meet together in one of the classrooms and we’d share a …
