69, 004 Words and 1 Click

With a click of the mouse, the 69,004 words of my manuscript was sent out from email into the inbox of the publisher. These past few months have been busy and yet rewarding all at the same time.

It’s an odd feeling knowing that someone else will read, edit, judge, critique and print your words.

I have so many people to thank for their support in this endeavor. First my beautiful wife for putting up with the late nights,the long conversations while I expounded my ideas and the constant note taking thanks to Evernote.

Next to Rev. Sarah Renfro, Megan Grassell of Yellowberry Bras and Kaylin A. for their willingness to share their stories.

Thanks are in order for Ray Miller, IV for his help in editing as well as composing the forward.

Finally thanks to you for your support and stay tuned!

I look forward to the next steps in the process.

In Christ,


Rev. Evan

The Night I Heard “Thunder and Crashing Metal”

This is not a typical post but stay with me. 

Two nights ago while sitting in my living room, I heard what can only be described as thunder and crashing metal right outside my house.  After the loud sounds I heard a car horn and I knew something was wrong.  I ran outside and saw a truck partially in my front yard.  A young man stumbled out and I called 911.

The driver was fine but his truck was not.   I was informed by a neighbor had the first sounds we heard was the driver hitting my parked car.  I had parked on the street that day because we had friends and family over visiting and oohing and aahhing over the newest Dolive addition.  I had parked on the street dozens of times before without issue.

The impact was so great that my car was pushed up on to the curb, ripped off my side view mirror and tore up my front end.

While my car is more than likely totaled I can take comfort that no one was hurt.  Things can be replaced but people cannot.

Below are some pictures of the car, may they serve as a reminder of the damage that can happen due to drinking and driving.


In Christ,

Rev. Evan
