Well hello there...
A little about me
I'm humbled that you've found yourself here; my name is Ryan Martin. I'm just a guy trying to be the best Husband and Father that God designed me to be. I don't always get it right and often hit the wall, but I believe with all my heart that Jesus is my savior, God is molding me into the kingdom soldier he needs me to be and the Holy Spirit is guiding me every step of the way. Life, Love, GOD & Everything In Between is a place for me to share the experiences I've had and the questions I've wrestled with as a believer in God, Christian, (I believe there's a difference) Husband, Father and Friend. Whether you're here to stay in touch or just took a wrong turn on the interwebs, I hope you'll read something that sticks with you and inspires you to seek Him first.
My story begins like so many others seeking "answers" in the world. (Insert whatever noun that applies to you in place of "answers".) Whether you've been a life-long believer or had found yourself lost like me; our stories cross at the same point; (pun intended) at the realization that the world doesn't have the ("insert noun") we are looking for.
It was through this journey that Life, Love, God & Everything In Between was inspired. The original idea started as a 3 ring binder when I was around 16 years old. That binder was a place to house poems, short stories, ideas, journal entries, etc. in hopes to share those items in book form one day. It seemed like a big dream back then, but it actually stemmed from this vision of a "Chicken Soup for the Soul" for Christians kinda thing.
It is my hope that through this site we can work through that crossroads realization together. Walk beside one another, share stories of victory, and mourn our temporary defeats. It's through this journey, and the continued roads ahead that I hope to share my God and my heart with you so that together, we may be presented mature in Christ. ~Colossians 1:28
