The Real Me!

Every Man needs a pumpkin- John Eldredge Wild at Heart Boot Camp experience of swinging a sword!

As this blog is about being real, it is only appropriate that I share about who I am and what I do.

First off, my name is Brandon and I am very blessed, not because of what I possess or do not possess, but because I have a great family and I am loved beyond my wildest imagination.  I do believe in God, and I believe God loves this world.  I believe God gave His very best, His One and Only.  I believe that when love is displayed with such depth and sacrifice, that Jesus is worth following.

Cruising with friends on Carnival Valor to the Turks and Caicos, so close to becoming part of Canada!

From my understanding and life experiences up to this point, I have learned that I need help in leading my life in a way that serves and gives value to other people , and Jesus has set the example and calls us to follow Him- anyone who is willing to lay down their life for me is definitely worth listening to and following!

NHL Play On (Ottawa, ON) 4 on 4 ball hockey tournament- this is the year we set the record for the largest outdoor ball hockey tournament.

I do a few cool things as I serve first of all as a husband and father to my family.  I also serve as a prison chaplain full time, a Royal Canadian Navy reserve Chaplain part time, as well as serving as a chaplain to our local Fire Department.  So I get to meet with interesting individuals and serve some of the greatest people on the planet!

This blog serves as a reminder to myself that I am not what I do.  But I am much more than what I do.  That is the point of Esse Realis- Being Real.
