A cat that can find a bell under three metal cups and poke at it with his paw. He hears the bell and knows exactly where it is. A bear that can twirl a tree branch, throw it in the air and catch it. A large line of trees that are bent permanently by sea breeze. A ten-year-old child that can bake a cake from scratch without a recipe. A one-hundred-year-old man that rides a bicycle to his girlfriend’s house. A moon so low on the horizon that it appears ten times larger and ten times closer than normal. A teenager that can jump in the air and flip as a car drives under him.

I am a Christian in recovery following four decades of active addiction. I have a B.S. in Psychology and an M.A. in Theological Studies from Colorado Christian University, and I will be pursuing an M.A. in Divinity at Denver Seminary in May 2021. My focus is on evangelism and apologetics, doctrinal studies, and working with individuals struggling with mental health and substance abuse issues. To me, there is no "higher power" than Jesus Christ, who broke the chain of addiction in my life. I will be seeking a position as a prison chaplain and/an associate or teaching pastor upon completing my MDiv. I am currently looking for a position at a drug and alcohol rehab, where I intend to work during the three-year master's program at Denver Seminary. I believe in the power in the Name of Jesus to break every chain. I believe counseling must include discipline, and discipling must include counseling. View all posts by The Accidental Poet
