Official Transition: Thanksgiving 2013 Mom

This will be the last post on this blog, well second to last post. I need to make a redirect page. Besides the point I am moving here. I will continue to post from that site, I will still be on the reader following people. Thank you to all those that have liked and followed this blog. It is much appreciated. So here is the last post:

I am very thankful for my mom. She deals with my little brothers and babysits for multiple kids.  She is absolutely crazy, but an awesome mom. I will keep this short but thank you mom for everything you do! and of course for proof reading my posts.

Moving up in the world

After days of debating, thinking and certainly praying I have decided to invest in my own domain. I will keep this guy going for a while until I have the other site up and running and spam free. If you would like to check it out feel free! Until a date later specified I will continue to post here with hopes of reaching more people, followers and followers of Christ. 

I posted on Sunday a bit of a story, a judge and no jury, (read it here). The story goes as any supper hero story goes; bad guy is defeated and the innocent bystandered gets to go with the hero. The sad part here is that you have to know the hero. You have to know Jesus, or else as you are standing in the courtroom, no one will come. The harsh reality is that hell is very real, and Satan is realer, and death is the most real thing in life. The bible speaks and I will leave references at the bottom, that we are damned to hell. Our ancestors have sinned, and no ones perfect right? We all have sinned, and we deserve death. There is 2 ways out of death. Either you are completely and 100% perfect, or you can trust Jesus Christ as your personnel savior. He took the sin away from us, and put it on himself. All you have to do is believe. 

It goes something like this: “Jesus, I know I am a sinner, I know I have screwed up, I believe in you and confess my sins to you. I ask forgiveness for my sins and pray that you will come into my life.” 

Here is the kicker, FAITH. The reason I said this prayer more times than I can count is because I lacked faith. Don’t! He is real, he has risen, and he will come again. 

In love AND faith

Let Love Prevail


I’m sorry for multiple posts in a few minutes, I didn’t want this in the other post.

I’m my junior high English class we are doing what is called a social change ad, this is mine. I did not have to actually pay for it but I thought it might be interesting. We have the option to share our in the class. Yes it would be a great way to share what I am passionate about, but I’m not sure the impact. I want to change the world, but why does my school seem bigger? I would ask for prayer in this scary time. I want to see lives changed, but I don’t want to be ridiculed for the rest of my high school years.

Why We Fall

One of the greatest quotes from batman comes from Wayne’s father. “Why do we fall? So we can pick outselves up.”

As a guy I am constantly failing. It is way to easy to let my mind wander just by walking threw the hallways at school. I fail constantly on a hour to hour basics. I am not the only one. I know there are other guys out there that struggle the same. That fail constantly. This is my hope, that you will quit hiding and be real. Quit faking through life, enough of the lies, enough of the guilt. I encourage you to tell your sexual l brain to shut up and to let you be in control. This is my goal, please, don’t hesitate to email me, or comment. I love the comments. I don’t want this blog to be like every other blog. I want it to be engaging and challenging. I want to see lives changed.

Reasons why: It is about 10:50 pm here. I was insanely close to going to a favorite porn site. I don’t know why but it was one of those days. Then I remembered my blog, I remembered who I am fighting and who I am fighting for. It’s time to get real.

In love

Life is a vapor, so make the most of it.

3 Years

Over the next 30 days I have signed up for a free promotion system. My goal isn’t a large fan base. My goal is to help other guys that struggle with lust and pornography. Whether you are here from headliner or here because you know me, you should read this. Please bear with my as I explain the past 3 years of guilt. (great way to start a post, right?).

I will try to be as transparent as I can but would like to keep this PG if I can. Three years ago it’s the summer of 2010. Life is going great. I am spending the night at my dad’s side grandparents. They put me up in a room with a comfortable bed, and a room filled with pornographic magazines. I have seen them before but never actually seen them. They were always classified as “Grandpa’s reading material”. Slowly I take a look. I feel great and free looking at those magazines. I actually sat by the door just in case anyone came by, but for hours that night I scanned through them.

Months went by and my birthday came up in October. I had been saving up for an iPod touch. Finally, I bought it. Excited by the whole thing, I played and watched movies with that thing like crazy. It was the end of October 2010. I was up late playing on my iPod and wanted to do some research on a certain app. I went to a site and saw an ad. Right away the ad reminded me of what I saw at my grandparents. That’s when my addiction started.

The rest is what you would call history. I was hooked. During the last 3 years I was challenged more times than I can count to stop my addiction. But I wouldn’t.

A great guy I met at Lake Ann told me that as guys, we love porn. We love it, but the thing is, we can only love one thing, either God or porn.

It was that week at Lake Ann that I gave my sin to Christ. I have failed many times after that, but overall have been better. The reason why I say the last 3 years were hell is because when you are watching porn, you are always guilty, you always think someone will hear or someone will walk in. Or the people at school will hear. Who cares? They might give you looks, but it is worth it to get it off your chest. You don’t have to tell the world either. I did, but you don’t have to. So my story is over, well not just yet. Through this blog I want to see people come clean with their sin. I want to see lives changed just like my own. That is my mission, that is my goal.

If you want to beat it, here is what you need to accomplish.

1. Confess. Don’t you dare tell Jesus you are sorry and it won’t happen again. Get down on your knees and cry over your sin, confess it to God.

2. Buddy System. Just the same as swimming we must always have a buddy, or buddies. Every time I was challenged about my addiction there was no one behind me. Having a strong group of guys behind you is great, even one or 2 will help.

3. Be Open and Honest. First off be as open and honest as you can. Easier said than done.

4. Stay in the Word. This is crucial in the battle against sin.

5. Last, but certainly not least, J.O.Y




Remember that you must put God first before anything and everything. He must come first! Then others: put other people before yourself. No matter how much you hate them (I really struggle with this). You: We all need time to sit back and reflect. Make time to relax, but do no become selfish with it. Take time to read the Word, but never forget your real mission.

The battle has been won, but the war has just begun. Get ready, it only gets worse. This is the truth about our sin, it won’t get easier. Now that you are conscious that it is a sin and ready to fight it, it only makes Satan try harder to make you stumble. He will be hiding, ready to trip us up. Get ready, get some buddies, and get back to what really matters.

If you have lasted this long reading this post please like, comment, share it. Whatever you are challenged to do. Don’t be ashamed by your past, but be conscious of your future.

In Love

What I Look for in a Future Wife

Right away people always ask girls what they look for in a future husband. No one ever asks us guys, but I’ll share anyway just to entertain you.
1. Strong, scratch that, very strong faith

2. Modest, I’m not saying ankle length dresses, I am just saying that I wouldn’t marry someone that walks around like a prostitute. Sorry to be straightforward but seriously….

3. Smart and funny, ok well that doesn’t matter too much, but doesn’t hurt.

4. Someone that doesn’t mind my weirdness.

5. Last: someone that puts God above anything and everything.

Well that’s it. I don’t care if they are short, tall, skinny or fat. I do not care. I want someone that will put God first in everything. That right there is true beauty.
