Hey there, I’m Ryan. permalink

I live in a suburb of Atlanta, Georgia (Fayetteville, if you’re interested) with my wife and three boys. As two working parents (my wife’s a teacher) with a house full of boys, you could imagine that we stay pretty busy, but we love every minute of it.

What I'm Writing About permalink

For too long now, I feel like I've had nothing to say. But recently, I've felt the need to speak up. If not for myself, then for all those around me who don't have a voice (or at least don't feel like they do).

And then I'm thinking about my children. I want to show them what a life fully-lived looks like when it comes to loving the whole world and those in it the way Jesus does. I want to show them that living in genuine, Jesus-aligned community allows us to be engaged in real, honest dialog with the culture we exist within without the hateful, dismissive rhetoric we've been seeing for the last few years (or 100 years, or 2000 years for that matter).

To carry on the conversation, hit me up on Twitter.
