Jesus Knows You
Jesus knows your works, your toil, and your patient endurance.
But he wants more.
He wants you to live with passion, purpose, and a sense of his presence.
You were created with divine purpose.
Missing a piece of God's plan for your life is like driving with one foot on the gas and one on the brake. You wonder why the car's acceleration and top speed are so far below manufacturer specifications. Symptoms include the following...
Most of us struggle with the same issue over and over again and can't see a way out.
BUT THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY OUT!
We just can't see it because we are too close to our own patterns and habits.
Tired of cliché answers?
Maybe you already tried to get help. You tried sharing your problems with someone, even an expert. And after listening a little while they gave you advice that only made you feel worse.
- Oh yeah, that's easy, just read this book and you'll be fine.
- It's just pride, man. You have to let that go, just be content.
- Well, it sounds like you're just a worry-wort.
- Sorry I can't help you, find someone else.
- You just aren't trying hard enough.
If you've been given trite answers like these, it's not your fault. Don't internalize hopeless messages. Change is possible. In fact, it's inevitable.
My first priority is to listen deeply without judgement.
Only then can I help you find the right path forward.
After leaving academia, I made a living in the commodities and futures markets with 6/7 profitable years. I was managing my own money with massive "skin in the game" every single day.
Sounds like life, right? Every day you harvest what you sow, with no one to bail you out.
Full-time trading was lucrative...AND STRESSFUL! I learned to make good decisions under extreme pressure. This forced me to get deeply in touch with my gut-level intuition, my emotions, and my logical decision-making process to be successful.
I want that for you too. I don't give you the "right" answer for your situation. I coach you to get in touch with who you are at the deepest level, mind, body, heart...and spirit. Your spirit is essential, because it connects you to divine guidance, to the Holy Spirit.
For me it was a long and windy road with many dead ends. I know what it's like to fail. To bear heavy shame. To feel stuck, not knowing where to turn for advice or clarity. (More on my story below.)
I want to help you answer the BIG questions:
What are my gifts, talents, and purpose in life?
How do I listen to God and get unshakable clarity?
How do I overcome negative patterns that go back as long as I can remember?
Imagine you hold in your hands a letter. It is addressed from Jesus to you. He begins with a few words that cover general truths that apply to everyone. Then, just where he begins to speak specifically to you, the letter is torn, and the last piece is missing.
You hold the first half of the letter, the Bible. But all that Jesus wanted to tell you about your individual gifts, talents, purpose, and "the good works he prepared in advance for you to do"...all that is missing.
Sadly this is the reality of many Christians today. The old, tired advice to just "pray and read your Bible" does not solve this problem. It's a respectable start...but it falls far short of the goal.
In John 5:39-40, Jesus told the Pharisees and teachers of the law, "You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life."
A personal relationship with Jesus means much more than mere belief or intellectual assent.

All the Stories are True: My Journey from Rational Belief to Childlike Faith
To hear more of my story, sign up below and I'll send you the first three chapters of my latest book, for free. I plan to release the full story in the first quarter of 2024.
This book describes how God healed me from my biggest trauma. Over the course of one brutal week in July 2019, my wife and I had a miscarriage, she nearly died, and I suffered a nervous breakdown. For about 4 years afterward I tried to cover this bloody, gaping wound with emotional band-aids and pretend it never happened.
Then on July 3, 2023 I decided to try something new. It wasn't meant to be anything epic. I saw it as just one more in a long line of experiments. I resolved to listen quietly for Jesus' voice every morning. Every single day, first thing in the morning, for two months.
It didn't take two months. 48 days later I felt like a new person. At times this period was just as intense as July 2019, but opposite: beauty for ashes and gladness for mourning.
In All the Stories are True, I tell that story in a fun, engaging way, mixing true stories from my life with an intimate look at the early church during Paul's 3-year ministry in Ephesus.
Yes. Crafting a parable to tell a spiritual message is a time-tested method for conveying truth in a way that hits you in the head, heart, and gut simultaneously. It makes the message more potent.
It's kind of like the Chosen series. The people, places, and events align with what we actually know from the Bible and other historical documents. Otherwise I've used my imagination and filled in the gaps, while remaining faithful to the character and personality of God, Paul, Timothy, and others as we know them from Scripture.
