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.
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.
