You Only Have One Life... Make It Epic!

01

Hi, I’m Jamie

I’m a Christian Striving to Fulfill My Purpose, Reach My Goals and Dreams, and Make a Difference with My One Life

I’m also striving to be a great Husband and Dad everyday

Epic Christianity is an overflow of years of seeking God and pursuing my dreams and goals. Through years of seeking, trying, failing, succeeding, and always coming back to the passions God put in me, God lead me to write a book that would be the foundation for anyone who wants to truly live their life for God and succeed at their most important purpose and priorities in life.

I’m a serial dreamer that needs serious help! I believe there is no limit to what God can do in the life of someone who is willing to commit one’s self to Him and wholeheartedly pursue the dreams He has put in that person’s heart.

God has made us all different, with all different kinds of gifts, purposes, and passions. I can only be me, and with whatever talents or limitations I have, I just want to be the best me I can be and I want to help others do the same.

 

Fun Facts About Me

  • My wife and kids think I'm funny and they like being around me! Crazy right?
  • My biggest fears include failure and stepping on seaweed
  • When I meet somebody famous or that I admire, I almost always say something stupid
  • I love a wide variety of music and I'm not afraid to sing with the best of them. (Whitney, Timberlake, Bolton, Groban, Adele, it doesn't matter)
  • I love playing sports, especially flag football and basketball! But I hate to exercise!!

  • I'm not perfect, I fail, I fall short, but I always get up and keep moving forward

Meet My Family

I've been married 17 years to my best friend and wife Lisa

How is that possible you ask, since she only looks like she's 29? I can only say, maybe she's not 29.

I have 3 perfectly imperfect kids. Jordan, Jayda, and Preston.

I love each of them the same, but I like to make them think that I have my favorites.

So far in my life there is nothing I am more proud of than my family.

Though my dreams have always been big, God has been sovereign enough to keep me around my family and focused on spending time with my kids while they have been young. God was gracious enough to give me that time in spite of myself and my achiever and dreamer personality. I will be able to one day look back on my life and not have to carry the regret of missing out on my kids growing up. I was there and I'm proud of that accomplishment.

My Guiding Beliefs

  • I believe that God has a purpose and plan for each person I believe that your success in life is only limited by your effort
  • I believe that our attitude in life is more important than our abilities when it comes to accomplishing our dreams and goals
  • I believe that your level of success is directly related to your level of commitment to what's important in life
  • I believe that God really does desire to have a personal relationship with us and if we seek Him, He will lead us, guide us, and speak to us.
  • I believe that fulfillment doesn't come from money or possessions but from having a vision and purpose in life that you regularly take action towards accomplishing
  • I believe that if we don't regularly make an effort to pursue our dreams, we will never reach them
  • Lastly, I believe that God brought you here for a reason! I know that He has a purpose that He wants to fulfill in your life and He has put dreams in your heart to accomplish. I believe He has led me to write Epic Christianity and build this website to help people just like you!

Why I wrote Epic Christianity?

I've learned that life is complex and is full of pressure, especially if someone is trying to create a successful life for themselves.

Without a clear focus on one's purpose, and what is truly important in one's life, we easily fall off course and before we know it, we're somewhere that we didn't plan on being.
For me personally, I needed to decide what I wanted to accomplish with my one life and then I needed to find a way to stay focused on my purpose and create the life that I feel God wants me to create. I've never been willing to settle for just making a living. I've found that the more I studied, read, and learned, the more overwhelmed in life I became. I've forgotten far more than I'll ever remember.
I thought to myself, there has to be just a few simple principles and actions in life that could be learned and focused on to create a successful life.
Epic Christianity is the solution that I created through years of trial, error, struggle, success, and failure.  It is a blueprint to unlock God's favor in our lives, to establish what's truly important in our lives, and to create a regular action plan to move towards creating and living the life that fulfills our most important purpose and reaches our greater dreams. Epic Christianity was written to build the foundation of a life that honors God and has the focus to put effort towards what really matters in one's life. I wrote it for me, for my kids, and for you! I hope you read it and you build a life that focuses on what matters to you.
