Hello, I am so honored you are here.
Yes you…valuable and uniquely you, searching for meaning and belonging in life and relationships.
I get it. Me too – wanting to know and be truly known, flaws and all.
I think we are going to be great friends.
I’m Sammy, not Samuel, just plain Sammy or if you like, Sam. I’m husband to one and father of two, and honestly, still figuring out who I am, where I fit and what is my purpose.
I, like everyone else, want to make a huge impact in the world and the sooner the better.
No one is perfect.
I’m thankful for that, because it kind of takes the pressure off. Even the ones of us that seem to have it all together, struggle at times to keep it that way. We’ve all gotten really good at keeping up appearances. I want to create a space where we can be ourselves and be fully known. There is no facade here, so take off the mask.
Life is messy.
I come from a broken home in a time when it seemed like no one I knew had even heard the word divorce. From 11 yrs old to 18, my dad was not around and even after he returned, our relationship has never been the same. We couldn’t be anymore different. In fact, he stopped talking to me once again.
I have a ton of insecurities, failures, and too many things I’ve wanted to do over the years, but was too afraid to dive in because I don’t want to fail.
There is hope.
The true hope comes from the relationship I have found in Jesus. Not the follow the rules guy that you learned about years ago in a musty old church, but the Jesus that sets us free to be oursleves.
Encouragement, refuge, and strength
I hope to be that for you.
You are important. You have a purpose, you are special, and unique. The world wants you to feel like you don’t measure up to it’s standards. The good news is that you don’t have to because you are perfect the way you are.
We all have times that we need someone we can lean on and realize we are not alone. As we say at my church, “you can’t do life alone.”
I also want to encourage and mentor others whom have grown up without a father.
I want to share my life with you, in hopes that I can lift you up on your journey.
