I never wanted an ordinary life.
Growing up, my worst nightmare was not being eaten by a shark or stranded on a desert island. I was utterly terrified of cruising through life without accomplishing anything extraordinary, scared stiff of waking every morning to a reality void of adventure.
After struggling to find this excitement in my everyday existence, Jesus swooped in and rescued me from my lowly, human, ideas of an “unboring life.” We don’t have to wait until we’re famous, or accomplish something “huge” to find fulfillment. ALL of life becomes a grand adventure when we learn to live in fellowship with Christ.
If you thought following God was boring…think again.
Since making the decision to live every moment with Christ, life has become one GIANT adventure. This blog is a forum to chronicle the marvelous and sometimes ridiculous happenings that occur when we choose to live everyday in fellowship with Jesus Christ. To name a few, I once made Oliver North cry, led a tiny band of Buddhist monks around the Atlanta airport, was mistaken for a model when auditioning for the X-Factor (I think they were blind), was a passenger on a plane when an engine blew out, and was trapped on a train with a Russian government worker who bought me a hotdog and forced me to watch Avatar on his cell phone. (Yes, that really happened.)
Despite all these beautiful fiascos, the greatest adventure of all, has been my fellowship with Christ Himself. Join me on this journey of discovery, romance, and all-consuming joy.
For those of you who have lost the wonder of a life lived with Jesus, buckle up. You’re in a for a wild ride!
