what is this blog?
I've been to Hell and back and I'm ready to tell my story. I can't tell you how to save your marriage. But I can tell you that God can save it. I can't tell anyone how to get sober. But I can tell you God can lead anyone to sobriety. I started Broken Vocation to share my experiences, strength and hope to those out there who may be struggling with the same things I have.
my story in short...
My indulgence in "self" nearly cost me my marriage and everything I had.
A few short years ago, I decided to leave my wife after giving up on our marriage. I deemed our marriage as hopeless. It was too hard. I was miserable. I was an alcoholic. I was desperate. I left to find greener pastures and to start over... or so I thought.
By the Grace of God, my plan failed.
After being seperated for nearly a year my wife and I reconciled our marriage.
I am now happily married to the woman I left. I am a new father to a beautiful baby girl, with many more on the way, hopefully. I am also in recovery from my alcoholism and haven't found the need to drink for a number of years.
Please stick around. I want to share all of it with you. Thats why I started this blog. What has happened in my life, in my marriage, and in my faith is nothing short of a miracle.
In these pages are my story. wounds and all. I've tried to hold nothing back. Full transparency. Hearing and reading the raw, unfiltered stories of others helped me early on. I hope that you find what you are looking for here.
The answer to all of my problems are:
More God. Less me.
I hope you find the same.
