Start Here

If you’re like most of my readers, you’re a self-motivated person who is always interested in making life a little bit sweeter. You are committed to making yourself better and making the world better in a way that only you can. You may not fully understand but in the deepest part of your heart you feel that there is a level of greatness that hasn’t been exposed. I want to help you release that.

But how? I believe that greatness is achieved one step at time and every post you read is an effort to take you one step closer.

I Invite You On My Journey

I know what its like to feel like I have so much potential that I am not utilizing. I remember what it feels like to not know where to start and to be overwhelmed by the constantly adjusting environment around me.


But What Do I Know?

I’m nothing special. A part-time graduate student, a full-time employee and an All-the-time teller of truths. I’m an aspiring entrepreneur and a former pastor. At the end of the day, I am just some random guy doing what I can in my small world to make the world a little bit better and life a little bit easier. I promise, the stuff you get here will at least be worth what you paid for it.

What You Should Expect

The content here typically revolves around the five main categories listed below from a variety of authors. Check out below and have a look around. Oh, and don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE!


  1. This is really amazing! Thank you so much for sharing this.
    p.s My bucket list has a lot of similar things on it πŸ™‚ best of luck you with your adventure that is life ❀


  2. Hi Brett, you should read She has a letter for her future husband. Lauren is a Christian and maybe you would like her blog. He brother, Rich DeMoss has a blog boldandunashamed – you would like that too. I like your note to your future girl! RMD


  3. In regards to “run a marathon,” I recommend doing the couch to 5K (podcasts found on iTunes). It’s really helping me become a distance runner! They also have a 10K one and then you can gradually work your way up to a marathon. Just a thought πŸ™‚ I hope you accomplish everything on your list!


  4. So I found your blog from the “infamous” sharing of your “To My Future Wife” post on Facebook (loved it by the way… glad to know there are still some of you Prince Charmings out there.) From that, I went through and read most of the rest of your posts. Just wanted to say I have enjoyed your blog so far! It’s very down-to-earth and practical, for Christians and non-believers alike. Keep it up!


  5. We share the ‘Be on Ellen’ πŸ™‚ There’s also a bunch more, but if I listed every single one it would be crazy! I had ‘Have a Foodfight’ as well but I managed to cross it off last year! I talk about it on my blog ('m on blogger)

    I hope you get to experience a food fight as well! I love reading your posts! You’re a great writer! πŸ™‚



  6. Huskies are GREAT dogs! You should get one! Found your blog shared on FB today. Good luck in life! When priorities seem to be straight, wonderful, beautiful, and AMAZING things happen!


  7. 1st I read your letter to your future wife and I just wanted to say thank you for writing that, I am totally sharing that with my high school girls I disciple! And thank you for me, because being in my twenties, a Christian, and hopeful missionary its hard to imagine that there is guys out there who still hold to biblical standards, thanks for the encouragement 2nd your before your die list is AWESOME! one thing you should add…pet a shark!


  8. It’s crazy to think how many of those I’ve already accomplished without knowing it’s on someone’s bucket list. Must be the benefits of being a third culture child. πŸ™‚


  9. My bucket list is almost exactly the same, plus some more! I’ll actually be marking the “have dinner in Italy” one off in about a month!
    Thanks for sharing!


  10. Hello,
    I would be interested to hear about your experience of being a college student and a youth pastor. How has this experience been? How has God been using this opportunity to work in your life and the life of the youth you are leading?

    Also, I want to thank you for posting your letter to your future wife. It is refreshing to know that there are still young men out there with a desire to follow God and want to encourage their future wife to strengthen themselves, appreciate the beauty that God had In mind when he created them and to wait for the person that will fight for them, because they deserve it.



  11. I just read your blog posts, and they are really good! I could probably use some ideas from your bucket list lol! I also want to be in a food fight, as well as some of the other things you put up there! Keep up the good work!


  12. I just found your blog and love it. But I have to ask, since you are obviously single from your “to my future wife” post {which I loved}…… what was your perfect date that you crossed off your list above and who did you go on it with?


  13. Good people like you give me faith in younger generations. Keep up the good work, and if you want to drive across the country, you have a place to stay in North Carolina. I’m not trying to hit on you in anyway, but you can never have enough good people in your life. Let me know if I can ever help you with anything πŸ™‚


  14. I found your ‘To My Future Wife’ post on Facebook from a friend. First off, that was really good. Definitely a good thing to read. Second, reading your “Who Am I” post, I just wanted to comment that if I can quit biting my nails (its tough and I still slip up from time to time) you can too. πŸ™‚

    You seem like a great/inspirational person. Keep it up.


  15. I, as I’m sure many others have, found you through the “To My Future Wife” letter. I found it to be truly inspiring and it really spoke to me with where I’m at in my life. It’s wonderful to see guys my age sharing my ideals, makes me feel a lot less alienated and lot more like there will be somebody to grow with one day.

    Thank you so much!


  16. Marathon you say? Well buddyo, once you’re ready, come run the “ultimate human race” AkA the Comrades in South Africa! 91Km of pure beauty. Don’t worry, the lions are all in nature reserves (some think we live in the trees with Tarzan’s leaopard skins wrapped around us) , so you won’t be running from them πŸ˜‰


  17. I read your letter to your future wife first and then this. I thought your letter was really great and had plenty of truth in it. I am currently going to school to become a youth pastor and hope that I can do well at it but I know God will be with me to the end. It is great to know that there are more younger youth pastors out there.


  18. What is your testimony? What are some of the things that the Lord has done in your life? What needed transformations has He reveled to you that you have allowed? Heart operations by the spirit? What fruits of the spirit do you think you bear and which do you still struggle with? When you read “if you want to follow me, you must pick up your cross daily,” what does that mean to you and for you?


  19. impressive, especially the last part
    “I know how to hustle, foxtrot, waltz, cha-cha, salsa, and swing dance”

    nice to meet you….
