Bringing hope to life
My name is Devon Cornelius, I am a husband, father and fledgling writer. My wife and two daughters inspire, encourage and humble me. They teach me about life and remind me how great simple treasures can be.
My heart is for those who are vulnerable and hurting, whose voices go unheard, and those who have yet to realize their potential. I truly love people and want them to discover their God-given gifts. I believe that each person has been created with a unique set of strengths to accomplish great things in the world. I want to help people see and use their gifts.
My mission is to better appreciate life’s important matters by paying more attention to the little things we often overlook. I want to redeem my innate sense of awe for life’s beautiful simplicity.
My prayer is that my writing will encourage you. I hope it conveys love and humility, not negativity and opinionated rants; graceful truth that encourages you to live a simple existence that embodies your unique vocation.
Will you journey with me?
Just as a nursing mother cares for her children, so we cared for you. Because we loved you so much, we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well. Surely you remember, brothers and sisters, our toil and hardship; we worked night and day in order not to be a burden to anyone while we preached the gospel of God to you. You are witnesses, and so is God, of how holy, righteous and blameless we were among you who believed. For you know that we dealt with each of you as a father deals with his own children, encouraging, comforting and urging you to live lives worthy of God, who calls you into his kingdom and glory.
1 Thessalonians 2:7b-12
