A LOOK
INSIDE MY HEAD

When I was only ten, I learned how to type on a manual typewriter. A-S-D-F...J-K-L-;...since then, I’ve written over 2,000 blogs and enjoy sharing my words with others. 

As a writer, you see the world around you as a story waiting to be told. Every experience acts as an actor for this beautiful story we’re fortunate enough to call “life.” I hope you appreciate my writing as much as I’ve had, living the story. 

Surrender

Writing
Last Sunday, our group was arriving to brunch to celebrate Michael's birthday. As we were arriving,  we lost our seats at a large table due to our party being incomplete/parking. Seeing a couple seated at a six-top, I asked them if they wouldn't mind relocating to a smaller table being cleaned..

Inner voice

Writing
There’s a story in the Hebrew scriptures, telling the story of Moses. Upon receiving the message from God, Moses began to clammer about his inability to speak properly. T.D. Jakes does an excellent impersonation of Mashah during this story… When I think about that story, I’m reminded of my own.

Parades & Playoffs

Writing
Last night, I sat in the living room to watch the golden state warriors game. (Dub nation - at least, I think that’s what it’s for.) I realized it was the first time I voluntarily watched an NBA game.  My parents turned off the family TV during my kindergarten years;.

Dive

Writing
“A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for.” There's a saying in the bible that says "don't cast your pearls before swine" which refers to wasting your talents on things that do little more than trample them without appreciation/value. I've been unpacking this idea in.

Charity + Love

Writing
"Life isn't fair. Anyone who tells you otherwise is selling something." I recently read an article that discussed the  process we go through when meeting others. During the first few moments of conversation, we decide if we can trust, and respect, the other. I have found myself guilty of snap.

Weekends With Azar

Writing
Last year, I moved to San Francisco, after four years in Dallas, TX. What brought me here was a job and the prospect of having a different life than the one I had grown accustomed in my early twenties. As a homeschooled kid that grew into a self-employed career, I.

Conversion

Writing
“I could tell you my adventures—beginning from this morning,” said Alice a little timidly; “but it’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.” As a child, I wondered about a lot of things. My older brother, Steve, enjoys reminding others about my "monster machine".

Jesus

Writing
I remember reading a book in college called Jesus With Dirty Feet. It talked about Jesus in a way that made sense to me. Instead of a high and lofty man with white robes, it painted a picture of a man that would answer the phone when you needed somebody to speak.

Charity

Uncategorized / Writing
Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. You could say that words have become a large part of my life since I was a child. I was one of the first in.

Alma mater

Uncategorized / Writing
Today, we  celebrate Mother's Day and recognize the wonderful gift we have in our mother. I'm personally very thankful to have a mother that has poured limitless love over all of her children, each in a unique and special way. Mothers make many sacrifices for their children.  As an adult, I now appreciate.
