My online journal provides news with a Christian worldview. My emphasis is providing news of interest to Christians in Tennessee, but I provide national and world news as well. I ALSO PROVIDE NEWS ON CHRISTIAN BOOKS, MOVIES AND MUSIC. Check back soon for podcasts on global Christian news and entertainment under my new Followers of the Cross brand. Posts do not necessarily constitute endorsement; they mean I think you will find the topic interesting.
I started this Christian news site to fill a need I perceived to be missing — applying journalistic reporting to the Christian scene around the state. I pray for God to bless this ministry.
I was baptized in June 2009 after knowing about Jesus but not knowing Jesus. As a messed up person following a perfect creator, I am still on a quest to learn about my savior. I am nondenominational, although I attend a Methodist church. I believe in the Trinity. I believe in the Nicene Creed. Jesus is the co-creator, the son of God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus is the only way to salvation.
I believe God is love. He loved the world so much He gave His only son up to be crucified for my sins, for everyone’s sins, as an atonement. I love everyone. God created them and they are made in God’s image. All people have worth for this reason, whether they are an unborn child, a convicted murderer, gay, an evangelical Christian, a Muslim, and so on. Just because I do not agree with some people’s worldviews does not mean I hate them. Disagreeing with someone’s beliefs or actions is not hate; it’s disagreement. I try to come across as nonjudgmental. If I say something that makes you feel hated, please, post a comment. I would like the chance to have a dialogue. I will reply back as soon as I can; please check for my response.
I’m a reporter at a Middle Tennessee community newspaper. I love writing, the art of crafting words together in unique ways to make beautiful stories that people want to consume.
I live in Murfreesboro but am a native of East Tennessee. My undergrad degree is from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville: Go Vols! I have a degree from Bryan College as well.
My freelance work includes editing a real estate investment book and writing online training materials for small-business owners.
