The Blog of the Beginning Blogger...

Hey, I am Harry'O and I am the Youth Pastor at Mulberry Springs Baptist Church. This Blog will be an account of my thoughts through a process of my attempt at writing the latest great novel that may one day be found in your local christian bookstore. First of all, I will admit that I am, by no means, a writer, but I have things to say. First, you should know a few things about me, with the first being that I am A.D.D.. I will attempt at being good about writing regularly, but as you will find out part of being A.D.D. is in complete opposition from that goal. I was diagnosed during my early teenage years with attention deficit disorder and all that pertains, and put on medication. The part I want you to know is, very quickly I decided the medication was not the answer and I removed my self from them. I began college straight away after High School and then went into the Military after a year. Throughout my time in the military I completed courses here and there. After eleven years in the Air Force, I found my self in college again. This time with a family, three kiddos at that time, a church position, and another job to pay bills. My fourth little beauty arrived during my final year of my Masters program. My undergrad studies were hard enough, but the Masters program was way more to handle for and A.D.D. dad of four, and full time youth pastor (at this point) with one extra class per semester so that I could finish sooner. I don't say all this to brag, but to encourage anyone out there who may have goals and let them hear, they are possible. I struggled. Oh man, did I struggle. I went days without sleep and sometimes finished papers moments before their due time, after working all night. Some of this Blog will be about those struggles, and the victory over them. I have several pointers for anyone facing a goal that looms over them like a mountain of impending doom. I will share those pointers along with the same struggles that attempt to keep our walk of following Jesus Christ to a crawl if not stand still. I hope you will join me as we walk through life together and will allow you to experience a little of the mind I wish on no one.
