The Devotional Guy™ | A Blogger’s Retrospective

After reflecting on my blog a bit and navigating the way forward, I decided to capture a set of posts and collate them for ease. Perhaps you are a longtime friend and reader of The Devotional Guy™, or maybe, you’re new here and wondering what this blog is all about and where you should begin. Sometimes, as you travel ahead, it’s helpful to glimpse in the rearview and get a peak of what you’re leaving behind.

Since this blog’s inception in late 2013, I’ve typed nearly 500,000 words and published over 850 posts.

The Devotional Guy™ is a Christian blog. By sharing a Christian perspective, my intent is to encourage, engage, and enrich souls. My hope is you will find posts that are helpful and inspirational, fueled by love, and filled with truth. I try and talk about real life situations here and examine how God helped get me through them. Once you read a few posts, you’ll learn about my battles with addiction. You’ll hear about my encounters with people as I share about preaching God’s Word and my experiences serving as a leader. Sprinkled among this blog’s ingredients is the occasional story about one of our furry family members. It’s an eclectic recipe aimed at helping you grow in your walk with God.

Here are a few all-time favorites that folks like to read:
