Serve #13 – Joshua, a man of his word.



      Serve #13 Joshua V. is an average guy with a great beard who looks more like a lumberjack than most lumberjacks actually do. However, under that bearded exterior is a guy with a faithful, loving heart. It is the heart of this rugged looking man that I want to point out. When I asked Joshua what his commitment in marriage meant, he paused for a moment reflecting back to his wedding day seventeen years ago. He then went on to say that he “lives out his vows” or as he clarified the “covenant” he shared with his wife during their wedding ceremony. He continues to be passionate about the words of his covenant and does his best as a Christ-follower to live them out.

      Is he perfect? No. Speaking of his marriage, Joshua passionately said, “No matter what we face we will be there to rely on each other.”

He is a man of his word, you can see it in his eyes when he talks about his wife, his children, and his friends.

As we were wrapping up, he said a couple of things that ring powerfully true. The first was, “A marriage needs to approached by putting others’ needs higher than your own.” The second powerful statement Joshua shared was, “Truly being selfless is serving.”

These are powerful words to live by!


Best wishes,
