Marriage & Men.

A lot has changed since I last blogged--I was blessed to marry the man of my dreams. This month we came straight into making some pretty big decisions and it has been so comforting to know that I am serving alongside a man who seeks to honor God with all that is in Him. He honors me: spiritually, physically, verbally, financially and emotionally. Taylor has a beautiful heart and desires for men to rise up in the church. He realizes that this world is full of MALES who aren't MEN. David Gilmore describes being a man as both tough and tender. Taylor is just this. He is tough against false doctrine, and soft against lost hearts. He is tough enough to be able to handle what life throws at us, but soft enough to love on people. I am truly blessed with a man of God. To God be the GLORY.

Darrin Patrick, one of Taylors biggest role models is a pastor out of St. Louis. He is also the Vice President of Acts 29; a church planting network. Taylor was blessed to get to take a short trip to Chicago last week with 3 Godly men to attend the Acts 29 conference. Men like Darrin challenge Taylor to be more than just a man. To be a leader. Taylor is so blessed to be surrounded by men on staff with him that love him. I mean really love him. They pour into him, invest in him and challenge him to become a better man.

Watch this short clip from Darrin Patrick and share. The church needs real men.
