My name is Sam. I was born in New Mexico and now reside in Southwestern Missouri with my wife Lacey and daughter Nora. I am a plumber by trade, but pursue writing, poetry, podcasting, ultra-running and a Masters degree in History in my spare time. I am passionate about expanding the kingdom of God via the written and spoken word. I value people over things, spiritual and intellectual wealth over monetary, and the depths of the human experience as created beings. Please, enjoy my writings and don't hesitate to reach out.
