Every parent is a protector.
I'm a husband and a father. My professional and life experience includes writing, marketing, and videography. I love having a family. It has truly been a great blessing in my life. They mean the world to me.
While my advice is based on proven methods and study I am not a member of the military or in law enforcement. I’m simply a dad who knows that protecting my family is a priority. I am passionate about family safety.
I’ve always been the guy who can’t sit with his back to the door but on April 20th, 1999 the shooting at Columbine High School was a wake-up call for me. While I was thousands of miles away, that day I learned that my safety was my own responsibility.
Since then I’ve developed situational awareness and a secure mindset. This has kept me safe on numerous occasions. Since the day I became a dad my need for security increased and heart grew tenfold.
Being responsible for more than just my own well being is a big responsibility and one that I take very seriously. I want to share my experience and observations with other parents so they can lead happy, secure lives.
I believe that a secure life resides in serving a loving God who will guide you and your family daily. Knowing my life is in the hands of a merciful God who loves me gives me strength and security every day. This blog is a direct result of God’s calling for my life.
“It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure.” Psalm 18:32 NIV
