At least that’s how I see myself. Jesus is my life; the rest is just the means at which I get to serve Him and show that He is my life. While I blogged four years prior to 2011, I wrestled for 9 months with a new life and new skin having been diagnosed bipolar.  I was in the hospital just 2 weeks before Charlie Sheen’s famous “winning” interview.  While discovering how to live as a bipolar Christ follower, I was re-diagnosed (a.k.a. correctly diagnosed), to simply a different concoction of neurological challenges (this was quite the back and forth diagnosis – “on second opinions”). Through ups and downs, an amazingly faithful wife and three great kids, I am learning what it means to be bornagainagain, regardless of diagnosis or label. While the birth pangs of life are tough and the journey is often slow, I’m hopeful. Hopeful in Christ alone, but hopeful for the Kingdom of God both now and yet to come for eternity.

This blog began out of my wife and my journey in 2011. The story as we shared (nearly verbatim) can be found on the blog entitled onhope:bornagainagin. So many thoughts have welled up within me as a result that have led me to a passion wanting to share in writing so much of what God has breathed in me and it’s exciting to share both for others and myself.

May you be blessed as you read, laugh, cry, get frustrated, disagree, have “ah ha!” moments and more. I encourage you to email or post any questions, thoughts, responses or your own blog that you’d want to share either privately or publicly.

  1. Hi ,

    My name is Curtis Hoyles and I am the author of ‘Cracking The First Time Dad Code, The 9 Step Guide to Pregnancy, Childbirth & Beyond for Fathers-to-be’

    In my quest to connect with new readers I see you might enjoy reading books in the Parenting genre. I hope you don’t mind me reaching out to you but I’m seeking reviews for my book and thought you’d be a good match. I am looking for reviews on Amazon so that I can get some feedback from readers, people just like you!

    I would greatly appreciate it if you would check out my book and leave me a review. I would really value your opinion! Please let me know and I’ll send you the book straight away!

    1. Hi Curtis, I would be interested in reading an e-version of your book, or listening to it. Let me know a link and I’ll try to do so before the end of the calendar year.
      Thank you,

  2. Hello, I saw your review of “The Reason for God” on Keller’s Amazon book page. I’m a huge Keller, Lewis, and Piper fan myself, and I just released a book that is in the same genre/category as “The Reason for God.” Anyways, wondering if you’d be interested in reading it and maybe leaving a review if you liked it?

    I have some free codes for the audiobook I can give out, and it’s also in eBook and Paperback format.

    If not, no worries!
    Here’s a link to the book so you can glance it over and let me know if it’s something you’d be interested in:

    Thank you!
