I was born and raised in church, mostly contemporary ones of various shades (Wesleyan, Church of God, non-denom). As of four years ago I started attending a Reformed Presbyterian (EPC) church. I generally subscribe to the Westminster Confession, although I definitely don't consider myself a true 5-point Calvinist.
I've been on an amazing journey during the last ten years; I've learned about the world, about myself, and above all, about the infinitely-detailed plans of an almighty and all-knowing God. I have very often fallen short of the Biblical precepts for a "good Christian life," and my advice (as much as any human's) should be taken with many large grains of salt. If you test my words against scripture (2 Timothy 2:15 KJV), my hope is that you will find them in agreement.

In the days of wooden sailing ships, a crew's ability to navigate by celestial objects was critical. Calculations had to be exactly precise, or else the ship could find after several days of travel that they had veered miles off course. Our life of faith is no different; making sure you are perfectly aligned to God's Word and his intended path for your life is a daily discipline. My goal is simply to impart some "navigational insights" that I've learned over the years, many of them by failing miserably and picking myself up afterwards.
Grant me to attain this haven and be done with sailing, and may the gales of thy mercy blow me safely into harbour.
