He is all we need.


I am passionate about helping those who feel hopeless see that they have choices.

I love to walk alongside-either in person or online-those who are hurting to give them the encouragement and hope they deserve. My Facebook page has over 575,000 followers and continues to grow daily. I love my wife of sixteen years, Kristie, my four two-legged children, my four-legged children, and appreciate God’s gifts of donuts, surfing, and Maui.

I am a bruised and broken man who has been restored by God’s grace and I want to share it with the world!

The simplicity and security of my Southern Californian childhood quickly came to a halt the day my parents divorced when I was eight. I was raised by my father, a Vietnam vet afflicted by the demons of his past. Being a father never came naturally to him, and to say my childhood years were rough would be an understatement.

Imagine the environment it would take for a ten-year-old child to consider suicide…

Want reminders of the love that Jesus has for you, even at some of your darkest hours?


Using the lessons I’ve learned as a firefighter, I help the hopeless find hope and the hopeful find purpose. Join our 500,000 readers on Facebook
