In Called Along the Way I describe my faith journey from unbeliever to believer, from cultural Christian to active disciple, from disciple to realization of call, and from seminary to early ministry. Unlike Adam and Eve, my story does not begin the Garden of Eden. If you too have struggled with your faith walk, then my story may offer solace. Even in our baby steps of faith, God promises to walk with us.

Hear the words; Walk the steps; Experience the joy!

Life appears most confusing when we fixate too much on the present, forget our own history, and lose sight of the future. As Christians, we know that our future is in Christ and because we know the end of the story, we also know that present afflictions are temporary, not the end of the story. The past reminds us of the many afflictions that we have already overcome, God’s gracious work in our lives, and the many blessings that God has given us.
