My Story

"When things change you have to adapt accordingly, or you will be left behind."

The original purpose of this video was to win some free gear so that I can ever increase the refinement that are my tools. But as I watched this project unfold in front of me, it organically changed into something so much more. Its funny how things change, isn't it?

Why so many questions?

When tasked with describing me, who I was, what I was about, I thought it was going to be easy. But as I started to figure out how I was going to edit and shoot, I was flooded with more questions than answers. Who was I really? Why am I doing what I'm doing? What makes me different than anybody else doing the exact same thing?

Awkward!
I've been told quite often by my wife's side of the family that I do many awkward things, above being an example. Half the time, they turn out brilliant, the other half...well not so much. But its the fact that I look at things differently and people notice, that I know I'm headed in the right direction. Sure I fail some of the time, but if I didn't try, how would I know if it works?

Why I do what I do.

Something I've always struggled with in this business is where is God in all of this...why am I not doing something in the ministry with what he's given me.

"I may never understand..."

That answer finally came to peace with me as I realized that I am doing exactly what he wants me to be doing right now. I may never understand why He has me doing what I'm doing right now, but I'm ok with that. This has been an enlightening experience for me and really I'm glad I took the time to do this. Editing all of this together really put a lot of things into perspective for me. I don't care if I win anything from this, I've gotten what I need from this already.
