We lost our first baby in January 2013. We named the baby Lazarus, echoing the story in the Gospel of John where Jesus raises His friend, Lazarus, from the dead. Jesus declared Himself the “resurrection and the life.” That is my hope, for myself, for my wife, and for my baby: that Jesus is the resurrection and the life.
We are thankful that God was gracious to us and gave us another gift of life: our son Roman (He will be an avid Giants fan one day!) and our daughter, Ruthanne .Our experiences with Laz and our living kids have brought to life the verse from Job: “The Lord gives and the Lord takes away; blessed be the name of the Lord.”
I will use this blog to probably write mostly about Jesus. But I also like the NY Giants, coffee, and watching TV. So I might write about those things too.
I am one of the pastors at Lincroft Bible Church in Lincroft, NJ. I grew up in NJ but lived previously in Kentucky while attending seminary at Southern Seminary. I did my undergrad at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA.
