Throughout my life, I’ve been surrounded by people who love to tell stories. Actually, some of those people love to tell the same stories repeatedly. But their stories are the tapestries of their lives – the good ones and the bad ones. And there’s a reason for the repeated ones.
There are protagonists, antagonists, plot twists that no one saw coming, character development, symbolism, irony, comedy and tragedy.
So, now I view life as a series of stories; all these little moments playing out in front of me – and including me – that create a great big life-sized literary work.
My name is Derek. Let’s share some stories.
I live in Apex, NC with my wife Elisa and son Owen. I love listening to music, watching movies, and I get incredible pleasure checking items of to-do lists. I work for Hope Community Church as the Director of Finance and Stewardship. While you’re here, though, please remember all my thoughts and opinions are my own.
