Dreamer, writer, a firm believer that God has a purpose out there for each of us, if we only still our hearts long enough to hear His call.
I have been with Oxygen since its early years of inception. This ministry has seen tremendous changes and has allowed me to grow spiritually in my life. I work as a school teacher and when not busy preparing lessons, I can be found scouring bookstores for the latest titles.
My life has changed radically since my encounter with Jesus at CER in 2015. Each day is a new discovery of his love for me. I fell in love with writing since I discovered Keats and the Romantics. From writing for a living as a journalist, I now write for God in my daily scriptural reflections on Facebook and for Oxygen.
Life explorer, marketeer and communicator. I encountered Christ at CER in May 2011 and am still on my journey towards Him. Been with Oxygen since Dec 2007 and am grateful for this life-giving ministry that continues to flourish and surprise...
I am...a follower of Christ seeking to increase understanding of my faith. A former educator undergoing the grind of pursuing a PhD. A veteran contributor of Oxygen. A church ministry addict. Trying and often failing to place God's will above my own.
Story Teller, Negotiator, New Artist, Ambassador of Tabby's Doodles. On a journey with God. Letting the Lord lead isn't easy, but what a journey it is! I have been part of the Oxygen family since 2015, an amateur artist since 2018 and today I am a student in Counselling. Where the Lord leads, I await in anticipation!
Lifelong Catholic falling more in love with Jesus every Day.... wife of 35 years & proud mama to a Jesus follow, Veronica....... love time with family (of course!) travelling, reading & writing faithful words of and about God's inexhaustible love of everyone of us .... .Most profound experience - pilgrimage to Israel. Grateful that.. "..if we only have the will to walk, then God is pleased with our stumbles." c.s.lewis. rom1:12
I am a husband, father, cancer survivor, and a disciple of Christ. None of these roles have been easy to play, but it is by the grace of God that I am allowed to be all these, both for myself and for others.

I am someone who strives to be the best version of me God has created me to be while trying my best to be kind and loving to myself as God is kind and loving to me. I love cooking and plating my food. I have a YouTube Channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChyz9Gg3lb8tVahQ7zs_rPA) where I post videos on our Faith (and I am praying I could do this more diligently). My Patron Saint is St Therese of Lisieux, and I talk every now and then to my guardian angel.
I love writing, design, and working with my hands. I love silence and contemplation as much as I love meeting and connecting deeply with others. God is truly my anchor and harbour in life and Oxygen is the place where my words join my faith and sense-making for God's greater glory. Writing with Oxygen since 2008.
I am a sinner, a faith seeker, a pilgrim on the way to Heaven. Come join me as I walk on...
