Disciple, Cultivator, Journeyman Scribe, Outdoorsman, Projectile Enthusiast, Foody, Learner. Twenty-two years of experience in capturing the world with my pen and in my lens.
Oftentimes I write for my church at http://thewellsa.com/blog, and create print content with the aim of helping the reader understand the God of the Bible. Additionally, I’ve overseen and contributed to teams that created devotionals for the book of Genesis, and study guides for 1 and 2 Timothy.
I want to know Jesus more and help others know Jesus more. I want to use the skills and talents he gave me for good work. Writing is one way I keep my hand to the plow. I have preached, taught, researched, learned, written, edited, served, failed, got stuck, and moved on, but by God I keep going.
I have been married since 2013 to my beautiful wife Amanda and have a wonderful son named Sam who was born in 2021. For those interested, I got my Bachelor’s in Ag Communications and Journalism at Texas A&M University in 2008, and a Master of Divinity from Southern Seminary in 2020.
In addition to spending time with my family, I am an avid outdoorsman and enjoy gardening, cooking, hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, writing, studying, and reading. I’m old enough now that I read way too much about World War II and smoke a lot of meat.
