Hi, my name is Joseph Williams and I am married to Marsha (Perky) Williams.  We have been married since July 18, 2009 and are still growing in our relationship with each other as we learn the quirks and mannerisms.  We have two kids, Alyssa (4 years as of 2015) and Tyson ( 1 year as of 2015).  Both are growing amazingly fast, both are learning about the world around them, and both have personalities of their own.  Alyssa enjoys making everyone laugh and have a good time (as seen in the goofy face above) and Tyson is busy looking at the world and trying to figure out how things work (can you see it by his facial expression?).  Through changes in jobs and Marsha taking a position as a 1st and 2nd grade teacher in Keyes, I am by default a say-at-home dad.  I was kind of reluctant about the idea, but in just the first week I have enjoyed the time at home with my two kiddos and the opportunity to continue some education online.  I am taking courses at Mid-American Christian University online with a focus on Christian Ministries.  The degree is a broad degree but I hope to finish with a bachelors at the end of 2016 and eventually make it into seminary to take my knowledge and education even further.  Rather God holds me as a blogger and writer or I receive the call back onto church staff ministry, I pray to give God the full glory in all I write and all I say.

I’ve decided to do a refresh this year on my blogging and I chose WordPress to be the location of my blog.  In this I hope to demonstrate the power of God in my life and the life of my family.  Through this I hope to bring you, the reader, some encouragement in following God and keeping Him at the forefront of your life.  Not only will this give a glimpse of how the Word of God has worked in my life but how it can work in your life as well.  Through God all things are possible and we need to focus more intently on bringing Him the glory and honor.

“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.  Give no offense to Jews or to Greeks or to the church of God, just as I try to please everyone in everything I do, not seeking my own advantage, but that of many, that they may be saved.  Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ” (1 Corinthians 10:31-11:1, English Standard Version).

I pray that this be a reminder not only to readers, but also to myself to do all things in order to glorify God.  In Christ all things are possible.

God Bless,

Joseph Williams
