Hi. I’m RS
I consider my life to count for many reasons: to love and protect my family, to bless and influence other people, to be productive in business…the list is long.
But there is only one main reason – there can be only one. For me, it is the single most important reason to be alive.
It is to honor God and spread His truth.
It’s been a long and sometimes difficult road to where I am today.
I have come close to death 4 times in my first three decades. At 5, I drowned in a pool and was resuscitated by a mysterious and beautiful stranger no one knew. At 7, I escaped an attempted kidnap at roadside. At 19, I survived a devastating car crash which resulted in major head injuries. At 28, I was crushed under a backhoe tractor when it rolled down a hill at a construction site.
These near-death experiences changed me, and formed me into the man I have become.
Not long ago, I arrived at a crossroads in life; a kind of mental, spiritual, and emotional signpost, so to speak. I realized that life is an all-too brief journey, and that the wisest people consider that sober truth, and spend their time accordingly.
I considered who I love the most, and what I love to do the most. And I chose to blend them into one, all-out pursuit.
The result was simply this: I want to write about the wisdom of God’s Word with those who care to hear it. The way I see it, this is a worthy endeavor.
To sum, life with purpose is a worthy life. If that purpose is to know and glorify God and His son Jesus Christ, then life has reached its ultimate peak.
And that is where I strive to be.
