About Me

Hello people! I used to be that guy who wrote his “About Me” page in the third person, but I have grown up. LOL!

First and foremost I am a family man. I married my sweetheart and we instantly became #TeamMurphy. Adding three beautiful children to the squad was just icing on the cake.


I’m also the executive pastor and teacher of Rose Hill Church of God in Christ. Even though I grew up as a PK (Preacher’s Kid), and I never had a desire to pastor, I have grown to love this calling. There are few greater feelings than teaching God’s Word to people who need to be built up.

Finally, I’m far from one-dimensional. I have an interests and talents (if I do say so myself) in many different things: music, fashion, culture, history, pop culture, graphic artistry, and of course blogging. It is my desire to use all these gifts to glorify God and edify people. I realize that my gifts are meant to help and inspire others. So I this blog is just a way to speak to the world and share positive inspiration; presenting a never-changing God to an ever-changing world.

They call me Murph …
