About Me

My name is Benjie Shaw. I’m a Christian husband, dad, and minister. I love Jesus, my family, a good cup of coffee, Marvel comics (that’s movies and print comics, thanks), and, in spite of my attempts to quit them, I’m still irrationally attached to the Atlanta Braves.

My blog is about my attempt to pursue Jesus in an undistracted, simple way.
