After_Before Pic
My name is Brian and I have been transformed by the greatest and worst thing that has ever happened to me.  The picture below is of my eye when I had a disease called scleritis which was an inflammation of the white part of my left eye.  The inflammation was so severe that I now have a partially detached retina and a certain amount of vision loss.  I was 3 weeks from my eye being removed and took every medication possible to stop my immune system from eating it away.
Lots to think about when you are in your early thirties and in the prime of life.

I am now on the other side of my sickness and have an amazing story to share that
will hopefully encourage others.
My book, “Holy Crap, Finding God’s Presence in your Pain” is the story of that journey and all the things I learned while being sick.
Life means something more to me since being sick and I want to help others find or rekindle a relationship with God and help them learn that you CAN find the “Holy”
in the “Crap” of life.

  1. Man! I have totally lost track of you and somehow someway ran across this page. I can’t believe it. I’m in Arkansas planting a church. Was in Southern California until 2003. Please get me caught up on your life. Praying for you! – Lane

  2. Brian –

    All I can say is wow. Was this ever an wake up call for me. I can’t imagine what you and Yolanda have been through with all of this.

    You will be in my daily prayers asking God to continue to heal and bless you both!

  3. What a blessing to come across your blog. I can’t go into detail at this time as I’ve been asked not to mention some things on any public or social site but you will be hearing from me in a few weeks. Thank you – that’s all I can say at this time. Bless you!

  4. Brian, I finished reading your book, a gift from your Aunt Barb, and resonated with so many of your initial feelings being a church kid and serving and helping people my whole life too, until my brain tumor left me with challenged eyesight. So glad you finished your book, and was excited to see the paragraph mentioning our prayers and card for you. We will make it, because Jesus came so that we might have LIFE! Even when we make mistakes.

    1. Sue,
      I am glad you enjoyed the book! The prayers from your group And the card you sent sustained me through my eye issues and I am able to tell my story because you prayed. I can remember the day I received the card you all signed and what it did for me when I was in the middle of my depression. Thanks again and I am believing for total and complete healing in your body!!

      Blessings,
      Brian
