In sharp contrast to the tone of the news, the “Our Only Comfort” devotional series helps us face trouble with firm confidence in Christ’s promise to be with us “always, to the very end of the age” (Matthew 28:20b).
I am the Marketing Communications Manager for ReFrame Media, the English language ministry of Back to God Ministries International. I love to see God transform lives through the gospel. Prior to joining ReFrame I served as a marketing manager at Awana where I believe God taught me the purpose and value of marketing in Christian ministry. To me, marketing is more than a profession; it is a work. I served for 16 years in the U.S. Navy and Navy Reserve. Having earned a B.A. in History at Alma College and a M.A. at Northern Illinois University, I learned marketing in the saddle in business settings. My wife, Sarah, and I have five children and serve as leaders in our church.
I am particularly interested in children's and family ministry. From the perspective of my own experience, I write about divorce recovery and single parenting. I have an ambition to write science fiction and historical fiction...but life seems always in the way. In my spare time, I enjoy playing board games with friends and kids: the more complicated the better.

Doug, thank you for your thoughts. I agree that as painful as it is, a spouse dying is most likely less destructive than the marriage coming apart by divorce. I'd further add that my experience...
