Welcome to counterthecurrent!
A new year. A new site.
Writing is one of the ways I feel I can best express myself. When I’m struggling. When I’m passionate about something. When I have a lot on my mind. Writing it all out brings such relief. There’s something therapeutic about reading the words in front of me. My words. Somehow I’m able to better process and think through things if I’m able to visually see it. Sometimes those words are just for me. Other times I love to share what I’ve written with others with the hope it will somehow be encouraging. Comforting. Challenging.
I started a blog years ago when I was struggling with different issues as a way to find relief. I didn’t keep up with it too much. A post here, a post there. Since then, I’ve had the great privilege of writing for other entities (CBMW, 9Marks, Gospel Taboo) and each time has been incredibly edifying. What an amazing opportunity to write out my thoughts about different issues, grappling with the gospel implications of those issues, and sharing it with others!
The more I write, the more I realize just how much I love it. It really is a deep passion of mine and I hope to do a lot more of it. That’s where this site comes in.
It’s no secret that living in today’s world can be extremely difficult. We are pulled in so many different directions on how to live and what to believe. It’s overwhelming. Sometimes we have others encouraging us in our journey. Sometimes we feel completely alone in it. Through this site, I want to share everything I am learning about different issues. Some of it will be more personal and some of it will be about current, cultural issues that we all are facing. Regardless, through all of it, I hope to provide a place where people can come for encouragement.
Maybe you’re here for answers. Maybe you’re here simply out of curiosity. Whatever the reason, I’m so glad you are and I hope you continue on this journey with me! I will be sharing a lot of new material and providing other resources I come across that I find encouraging. But, I kept some of my older content on here, as well.
Stay tuned for more!
