ABOUT ME

GROWING UP, I WAS ENCOURAGED TO READ THE BIBLE. I TRIED. IT FELT LIKE, WELL, READING THE BIBLE. I DECIDED, DOING THIS REGULARLY WAS FOR THE UBER DEVOUT--AND I WAS ON THE FENCE.

 

SURE, IT HAD WICKED STORIES, BUT THEY WERE ALL SPREAD OUT. I COULDN'T READ IT LIKE A NORMAL BOOK! IF I TRIED, IT TOOK HOURS OF BORING (AND CONFUSING) STUFF BEFORE I FOUND SOMETHING I COULD UNDERSTAND.

FOR ME, THIS WAS THE BIBLE; A LITERARY RUBIX CUBE. THEN, EVERYTHING CHANGED. I STARTED TO DISCOVER THE BIBLE AS ONE SEAMLESS STORY. EVERY MOMENT, EVERY WORD, TOLD ONE NARRATIVE. I STILL COULDN'T READ IT QUITE LIKE A NORMAL BOOK, BUT A POWERFUL STORY WAS THERE. 

IT'S BECOME MY PASSION TO HELP PEOPLE ENCOUNTER THIS STORY. I KNOW COUNTLESS PEOPLE FEEL THE WAY I DID ABOUT THE BIBLE. I ALSO KNOW THAT MANY PEOPLE KNOW THE BIBLE TELLS ONE STORY, BUT THEY'VE NEVER READ IT FOR THEMSELVES. I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE EXPERIENCE THE BIBLE AS A STORY THAT IS NOT STUFFY, BORING OR CONFUSING. IT TRULY IS A STORY THAT WOULD CAPTIVE ANYONE, WHETHER THEY HAVE A RELIGIOUS DEVOTION OR NOT!

I AM NOW AN AUTHOR, WRITER, SPEAKER, STORYTELLER, AND ACCREDITED PASTOR. THIS WASN'T ALWAYS MY AIM. MY PLAN WAS TO PLAY PROFESSIONAL ICE HOCKEY. I ACTUALLY HAD A "CUP OF COFFEE" PLAYING PRO IN EUROPE, BEFORE HANGING UP MY SKATES, BUT THAT'S A STORY FOR ANOTHER TIME.

I SPEND A LOT OF TIME SPEAKING AT CAMPS, CONFERENCES, CHURCHES (BASICALLY ANYWHERE I AM INVITED). WHEN I'M NOT ON THE ROAD, BEAUTIFUL BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, IS HOME. I ENJOY HOCKEY, GOLF, THE LAKE, HAVING A TAN, WORKING OUT, MY MOTORBIKE, READING, AND SPENDING TIME WITH MY FAMILY (ESPECIALLY MY NEPHEWS & NIECE).

HOW IT STARTED

WRITING AND SPEAKING WAS NEVER MY PLAN, THEN AGAIN, NEITHER WAS A HORRIFIC CAR ACCIDENT.

 

MY FIRST YEAR IN COLLEGE I WAS IN A BAD ACCIDENT, WHICH RESULTED IN A SERIOUS CONCUSSION, AND BRAIN DAMAGE--WHICH SOME PEOPLE SAY EXPLAINS A LOT.  THIS LEFT ME WITH A CLINICAL DEPRESSION, AND NEWS THAT I WOULD NEVER PLAY HOCKEY AGAIN. DEPRESSED AND LOST, I STARTED READING MY BIBLE. IT CHANGED MY LIFE. IT SAVED MY LIFE.

I STARTED TO DISCOVER THAT THE BIBLE IS ONE STORY. IT QUICKLY MOVED FROM A BOOK I READ FOR FAITH AND DEVOTION TO A STORY I COULDN'T PUT DOWN. WHY HAD NO ONE TOLD ME THIS WAS POSSIBLE?

YEARS LATER I HAD A FRIEND WHO WANTED TO READ THE BIBLE. LIKE MOST PEOPLE, THEY STRUGGLED. WANTING TO HELP, I DECIDED TO WRITE DAILY EMAILS. MY HOPE WAS TO HELP MY FRIEND CONNECT WITH THE BIBLE EMOTIONALLY, AND IDENTIFY WITH THE PEOPLE IN THE NARRATIVE. I WANTED TO HELP GUIDE THEM INTO THE STORY SO THEY COULD EXPERIENCE READING IT FOR ENJOYMENT, NOT DUTY.

 

MY FRIENDS RESPONSE, "THE BIBLE IS COMING TO LIFE!" 

THESE EMAILS SPARKED MY PASSION FOR WRITING, RESULTING IN MY FIRST BOOK, Q830:GENESIS.

 

I NOW WANT TO HELP EVERYONE ENCOUNTER THE BIBLE THE SAME WAY MY FRIEND DID. I WANT TO SEE PEOPLE DISCOVER THE PIERCING STORY INSIDE. I'M WORKING TO SEE MORE PEOPLE RESPOND THE SAME WAY MY FRIEND DID. I WANT TO BE YOUR GUIDE TO THE BIBLE.
