Hey guys, I thought it would be pretty cool to share some things about myself. That way, you have some more insight on who I am, who’s blog you are reading, and what I am all about.
I live in the Pacific Northwest
I am married to an amazing woman who loves the Lord Taylor Tsvyetkov
I don’t spit “fire” on twitter, my tweets are lame.
I am currently an intern at Christ the Rock Community Church
I love coffee
I like to hike the PNW and take photos
I love meeting new people and making friends
I love to read as much as I can in my free time
I am getting my BA in Biblical Studies and Theology from Liberty University
I am a huge community advocate
I think most of the people who look at my blog probably come from my Instagram and maybe some of you have just heard about my blog from someone else and just wanted to check it out; and in either way, I am glad you are here. You are probably familiar with some of the facts I shared about myself and if you follow me on social media, you also know that I am an advocate of grace, I love people, and I am always down to grab a cup of coffee with someone and talk about Jesus.
I think the big turning point in my life was when I went to a camp called Malibu that is located in Canada. I heard about Jesus in a completely different way. I grew up in a Christian home and heard about Jesus a lot, but he always seemed to be this stoic and almost lifeless figure who I constantly had to strive to impress even though he was so distant and cold. What really changed my heart and mind was hearing that Jesus was basically the complete opposite of that; he is a God of relationship and wants to have one with you so badly that He sent His perfect son to be beaten, mocked, and killed so that we could have a hope, freedom, and to have an intimate relationship once again. He saw me in my mess, my struggle, my sin, my pain, and said “I love you, I forgive you, my grace is sufficient enough”. I tried to do what is right and please God all my life, but the problem is that He was after my heart, not my white knuckling, begrudging, pathetic works. I used to think I needed to have my life together and perfect, but the basis in which a relationship with God starts is by realizing that you do not have it all together and that you need help. He is a God of love, relationship, grace, forgiveness, the author of life, my maker, and He wanted me just the way I was.
