6 Little-Known Thoughts for New (and Not so New) Blog Readers

Over the years, an increase has taken place.

More subscribers have jumped on board since I began this site as an extension of my ministry.


So with the circle expanding and the traffic increasing, I thought it would be a good idea to help you get better acquainted by sharing six little-known thoughts about me and this blog. Whether you have been reading along since nearly the beginning or if you’ve recently joined, welcome on board. Thank you for spending a few minutes each week with me.

1. Basically, I’m a pastor that’s always looking to help others. Wherever you are in your life’s journey, I want to help you become better. I know that you know that we all need people in our lives that will encourage and instruct us on how to be the best possible person that God created us to be. I hope I can be such a voice in your life.

2. As a fully-funded vocational minister, I have the privilege of starting most days of the week with extended devotional time. This time includes Bible reading, thinking, praying, and some writing. Then and there is where most of my insights begin that I share in blog form.

3. Although I’ve been a preacher since 1994, I didn’t consider writing one of my ministry gifts until 2011. I began to develop and hone my eyes for editing and writing out of necessity. And because I also served as the editor of my organization’s magazine, I’ve learned quite a few things about graphic design and layout.

4. In the latter half of 2015, I began to think about blogging and prayed about it. Eventually, I began to sense it was the will of God to start this site. Immediately, I derived great pleasure in creating content. Unexpectedly, I found cathartic value in writing and helping others through the written word.

5. Website maintenance and blogging were not in my toolbox of skills, so this has been a learning adventure. WordPress has made it somewhat of a natural process. By nature, I’m a questioner and, thereby, a constant learner. If I get intrigued enough, my passion can cause me to gain a working knowledge of any subject.

6. While I wouldn’t describe myself as a jack of all trades, I confess that I am a master of none. With its diversity of experiences, my background has caused me to know a little about many different things. I’m glad to see that I’m not a one-dimensional preacher that can’t relate to others.

  1. I’m not sure how I found your blog William, but I quickly subscribed. I am not a pastor but I am the son of a pastor and the father of a pastor. My wife and I have been married for nearly 40 years and we have five children and four grandchildren. Our daughter is also in full time ministry.

    I started blogging through the encouragement of my eldest son and continue to post when I can on his blog. I greatly appreciate the blogging family I have become part of over the last few years and I have my subscriptions set up so that the special ones are emailed to me.
