My name is Ben and I enjoy the practice of writing on spiritual life. Articulating the journey is an art form I appreciate when I read it, but I’ve also seen it hashed by cliche and triteness. I hope for this site to be a practice of bringing something living and helpful to the journey of others.

“Surveying the Way of Jesus within the American spiritual desert.” This has become a life guiding phrase to me, especially as I think about raising my children to be followers of Jesus. Some would say Christianity is easy in the U.S. Perhaps they’re right. But, so much of what I’ve seen has been mirage after mirage; very little Living Water. So: I intend to map it out here.

My wife Jenny, two boys (Jude and Jesse) and I live in Kansas City, KS, where we’ve joined with friends in an intentional Christian community venture (2012).
