Important Men in My Life

Studying Genesis 3 in my eschatology class and talking about the origin of the Battle of the Sexes made me want to fight this us-versus-them tendency by affirming some of the men who have made an impact on my life.

I am grateful for:

My grandfather, Harold Stark, for his gentle silliness and the unconditional love he has shown me for 27 years.


Bill Smith, for making me feel worthy of attention when I was overwhelmed with insecurities.


Bruce Bibb, for encouraging me both to study the Bible carefully and to open a Roth IRA at age eighteen.


Joel Newton, for listening to my life’s passions and supporting me as I pursue them.


Roy McGarrah, for continuing to be a helpful older brother who teaches me to express my emotions and think deeply about the world.


I wouldn’t be who I am without these amazing men.  I am so thankful that they have been a part of my life.

      I hope I’ve inherited both your silliness and your gentleness. 🙂
