Last summer I began pondering the idea of compiling a bunch of blog posts, essays, and stories into a printed volume. After pulling content from my a variety of places in my archives, it was clear that there was enough material.
Two weeks after beginning to gather things together, 35 Musings for Young Adults was published and is now available in paperback and for Kindle!
35 Musings includes blog posts from the archives, such as:
- Controlled Burning
- Pulling Focus
- O King, Live Forever
- Throwing Gutterballs
- Wise or Foolish?
Never-published musings, including:
- The Power of God Mocked
- Practice vs. Thought
- Nostalgia Culture
- On Life, Sociality, and Singleness
Essays by both myself and Samantha, like:
- Arbeit Macht Frei
- A New Journey
- Separate But Equal
Also included is The Continuing Journey, which gives some glimpses into Samantha and my engagement. We talk about some of the things God led us to do, how they wound up working out, and their effects on our just-begun marriage. It’s not intended to be a guide of any kind, simply a look into one way God has worked.
My hope is that 35 Musings can be a help to young people navigating the waters of becoming adults. Sometimes all we need are examples and provoking things to think about; perhaps this collection of writings can be of use.
For parents: please note that in this book, I’m very transparent about some issues I struggled with in the past. There’s nothing explicit, but I do mention porn addiction a couple times and masturbation.

Growing into adulthood can be confusing.
It’s easy to feel like giving up & giving in — but is that what we’re called to do?
35 Musings is a collection of essays and stories written by two young adults. They present glimpses into their own experiences, questions to ponder, and ideas to mull over.
