I met my wife, Devon, in Graduate school while taking a Psychopharmacology class with Professor Love. True story. We were married in 2008, and next to giving my life to Christ, this has been the wisest decision I have made in my life. We have a wonderful son named Hayden Dekker and have a daughter on the way that we plan to name Hadley Brittland. We also have a Shorty Jack Russell named Jacksie, after C.S. Lewis’ dog. My family is very important to me and we enjoy our time together.
Professionally I am a minister and Licensed Professional Counselor. I find people fascinating and I love helping them address struggles in their lives. I feel that Theology and Psychology go hand in hand because we are multifaceted creatures and are met with physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual concerns. I hold an M.A. in Psychology with a specialization family therapy. This year I will also graduate with an M.A. in Apologetics.
I have found a common theme that runs through my life is sharing perspective. This is involved in the counseling, speaking, and writing that I am allowed to do. I feel that part of my calling is to share perspective with others through what God is teaching me. I love working with people and I am passionate about speaking.
I feel called to equip others to live with wisdom based on God’s word, to share His Gospel with those around me, to defend the faith, and petition others to engage the mind in relation to their faith.
I write to explore, learn, and share. Words are powerful, I pray I use them wisely.
