Baby Jonathan, doo doo doo doo doo doo (1985)
You’d think I’d be more into sports, but alas…no.
Years later, my dad was invited to pastor a tiny church in rural Texas. At one point during a church service, a deer was hit outside, and four guys jumped out of their seat. They were sending people home with freshly butchered deer meat at the end of the service. 😳

Just a Small Town Boy (1997)
My first job was doing search engine optimization and web design at a local company. I sold two hideous websites for $500 and $5,000, and used the money to buy a computer that isn’t even a tenth as powerful as my phone.
Pastor's Kid Pt. 2 (2000)
Debt: 1 million.
Faith Temple had just gone through a massive split, former members were suing the current pastor, and they invited my dad to come and take over the church. He said yes. 🙄
So we moved to Corpus Christi, Texas.
I didn’t do that. But I did get my Bachelors in Business Marketing.
Pastor Jonathan (2006)
My dad almost fired me a few times. The pastor who took over for my dad almost fired me once. Eventually I learned my lesson and became slightly easier to work with.
The church grew, and even moved into a larger building two weeks after I moved to Dallas. I’m not bitter I didn’t get to enjoy the new space… 😬
Who's That Lady? (2007)
My opening line? “What do you think about Brazilian soccer?”
Not sure how that didn’t put an end to the relationship before it even started.
I proposed to Carolina a couple of years later on her birthday. I was really sick that night. We married 9 months later.
``Take That, Miss Eastman!`` (2010)
That’s when I started rethinking things… Maybe I’m more creative than I thought.

Writing and Riverwalking (2014)
My wife tries to read my books. She got about 25 pages into Created for More, which might have been a record.

Oh, we also got a puppy.
