I am a father to an amazing, almost 2-year old son and a husband to a beautiful wife that I have been married to for over 3 years. I have been a Christian since August 2000, when I heard David Nasser speak at Olive Baptist Church in Pensacola, Florida. Before that time, I had been living my life for myself. Because I had a church upbringing as a pastor's son, I had always assumed I was a Christian. My days before I was a believer consisted of me and my buddies tracking storms for big surf, and creating mayhem which almost always ended with the police chasing us from skateboarding on school grounds. Since that time my life has had its ups and downs with the biggest when I enlisted in the military. Since that time I have had a set of new challenges, having my faith tested through many different situations. After moving to the San Francisco area in 2009, a friend gave me a video series put on by Kirk Cameron, and Ray Comfort Called  The Way of the Master. After watching this I began to feel convicted about the way I shared my faith with others, going from a relationship with the individual with the hope that maybe they would ask me about the joy I have in Christ...which almost never happened. I realized that I needed to be bolder in the way I shared, but still wasn't sure how to refine the way I shared my faith. I went to visit my parents on the East Coast and randomly picked up a book called Seal Of God written by Chad Williams. After reading it, I discovered the world of apologetics. Unbeknownst to me, I had always been an apologist I just never knew it. I always felt a need to share my faith with my friends, but I just didn't know how to answer certain questions they would ask me. Most of the time it ended up with me saying something like, " it just is," or "just have faith." Little did I know that there were answers to the questions they were asking like, "Why should I be a Christian?" or "How do you know the Bible is true?" The more I study Scripture, the more I desire to share with both non-believers and believers what I am learning and how to answer those questions. I want this blog to be a space where I can do just that!
