Understand Yourself Better

Hi there! I’m Tim. On this blog, we talk about making sense of your past, understanding your deepest desires, and discovering God’s original design for you. Join me and 750+ others who are constantly learning more about who we were created to be:


As we experience the joy and heartache of life, each of us grapples alone with a series of deep, dark questions:

Who am I really?

After my failure, am I still worthy of love?

What if my weaknesses have no redeeming qualities?

Does my presence in this world actually matter?

For over 20 years, I was terrified to explore the dark questions of my own life. But one of the most beautiful parts of my journey has been God answering all these questions in such a powerful way—and giving me meaning, purpose, and a more intimate relationship with Him than I ever dreamed.

On this blog, we dive deep into this stuff. Because it all applies to you. 

So if you’re wondering what your longings and desires mean about you…

Or if you’re worried your deepest self isn’t enough…

Or if you’re terrified to come face-to-face with the ugly parts about you…

This blog is for you.

We’ll work through all of it together, peeling back the layers of lies we each have. And you’ll start to see the amazing way God has stitched you together.

Because you were originally designed for wild, wonderful relationship with your creator—and for a greater purpose than you could’ve imagined.
