My Life Radically Changed

Ever since I can remember, I have always felt like something in my life was missing. I blamed it on multiple things including the fact that I didn't have a present father or the fact that I was severely depressed or the fact that I felt like I would live my whole life in the depth of my eating disorder. It's crazy to look back and realize that the one thing I was missing was by my side the whole time. I was diagnosed with anorexia, depression, and anxiety when I was 14 years old. I was a skeleton of…

Real Financial Peace

In March of 2013, Christie (my wife) and I started the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University (FPU) course taught by Kevin J. Bacon.

I Found Family

I was born into a Catholic family. I went through all of the normal Catholic traditions: baptism, confession, first communion, confirmation...
