Hey, I’m D. Welcome!

I’m a Jesus follower, boyfriend, friend, son, writer, musician, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner. Also, I drink way too much Diet Dew.

One thing that breaks my heart is when Jesus’ followers get it wrong and consequently maybe don’t win over others quite how we should.

My goal here is for everyone to have better and more fulfilling relationships: with other people, with God, and even with self in some contexts.

I’m glad you’ve stopped by; I hope you find something useful, and I hope to see you again soon.

I would also like to add that I’m heavily influenced by Andy Stanley, and if you have any interest in reading/listening to the things I write about but in a better communicated format see here for a fantastic read (most of my copy is constant underlines and circles) or here for the YouTube channel. He does a much better job than myself.

Quotes I Try to Live By

“Direction, not intention, determines your destination.”

Andy Stanley

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.


. . . the only thing that matters is faith working through love. . .

The Apostle Paul
