Life is tough, dude.
My name is Jake Johnson, and although I’d prefer to spend my days sipping a beer off the coast of Jamaica, you can find me most days at a Starbucks with an iced coffee and a laptop. I desire to live with purpose and passion in a world that is rapidly losing both, and I pray that what I write may impact others to live purposefully and passionately. When I’m not writing, I enjoy reading, running, and rock climbing. I also enjoy cheap cigars, subpar poetry, Kenny Chesney songs, and Good Will Hunting quotes. I’m an avid thinker of Christian philosophy and psychology, and am currently majoring in Counseling and minoring in Biblical Studies. Some days I’m a skeptic, somedays a saint, but most days somewhere in between. Through my blogs and my podcast, I attempt to wrestle with the brokenness and beauty of the world I find myself in, searching for (and occasionally finding) that elusive Man named Jesus. But then again, that sounds a hell of a lot like a cliche.
Thanks for joining me on the journey. May we all be like those guys on the road to Emmaus, who did indeed find what they were looking for.
