After enduring tragedy through losing his dad and older brother in a plane crash, Colin’s perfect life was crushed. Through his faith in Jesus he had hope to keep pressing on through the pain. During his junior season of baseball at Pepperdine University, God did some amazing things on the baseball field. From hitting a game-winning walk off homerun while his nephew throughout the first pitch to receiving a Gold Glove Award using his older brother’s glove, these things weren’t coincidences, they were miracles. After Colin’s baseball career he endured many challenges not having his dad around to lead him and help teach him how to be a man. These things he faced were emotional lions that came against him trying to defeat him and keep him from being the man that God created him to be. Through his realness and honesty about his wound and the depression, anxiety, and fear that he has experienced as a fatherless man, Colin hopes to encourage others who are facing similar struggles so that they will see that God wants to use their weaknesses and challenges that they are facing to do great things for His glory.

About the Author

On January 11, 2009 my life was changed forever. Both my Dad and brother died in a plane crash. It was the worst pain imaginable knowing I would never see them again on this earth. In the midst of it all, I felt this indescribable joy and comfort. I felt Jesus in a way that I had never felt before. God has done indescribable things in my life since their passing and continues to father me through the challenges that I have faced as a fatherless man.
