My name is Don Sartain. I started blogging about life, Theology, and Christian thinking in 2010. It’s taken me three years to put an “about” page on here, because I honestly don’t want this space to be about me, I want it to be about the gospel.
Yet, I’ve found that it’s easy to be authentic when no one knows who’s writing. I’ve found that there is added weight to the words of those who I have read when I know something about them and can see the gospel fleshed out in life with family and work and friends.
To that end, as I write this, I’m 36 and married to Angela, and love being a member of The Village Church. I may or may not remember to update my age. I have two precious little boys now, Calvin and Joseph, and a baby girl, Hannah. I work as a Software Developer where I do my best to focus on work until I can leave and be with my family and think and write when the kids go to bed. I don’t consider myself a writer, but I do feel compelled to write anyway. It’s not about the writing, it’s about the gospel. As such, what I write about can vary from working through Scripture to something the Spirit compels me to write concerning a certain trend or current event.
If there’s something you want me to write about, feel free to email me. I can’t promise I’ll be able to write about it, but if nothing else I can probably point you to someone who has. If you’re on Twitter, include your handle so I can let you know when it runs.
I have two brothers, more cousins than I can count, and family get-togethers make me think of Stuck in the Middle With You (Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right). And, yeah, sometimes I tend to fit in there. I have several solid guy friends who love me well and aren’t afraid to speak truth into my life, especially when I don’t want to hear it. A few girls who fill that role, too, for whom I am incredibly grateful
I do my best to include links to articles or blogs that inspire me or make me think enough to write about them. You should read those, too.
