In the attempt of being transparent, I must say that outside of my speaking engagement and teaching overseas this past summer, this has been the hardest year of my life. I cannot go into detail about what has happened but vaguely I can speak slightly on it. Everything from seeing someone in the E.R. several times, things with my family, my job letting me go, and things not working out on a relational level, has challenged me intensely. Add on depression, anxiety, panic attacks, etc. and its a year I would not like to repeat.
However, my trip overseas and my experience with the youth there brought me the closest that I've ever been with God. As much as it pains me to say, I would go through all of it to experience that closeness again. Its difficult to explain but its something worth suffering for at the very least.
I have a great deal of goals and a lot planned for this year for all those that are following me. Included are goals that wasn't reached this past year. Thank you for your support and I ask that you keep me in prayer as I strive to do better and to be better.
