God has taken the struggles in my life and turned them something truly wonderful. Growing up I went through so many things I shouldn't have gone through but every step of the way God has been with me. I have been blessed beyond what I could ever imagine. Not in the way you would guess, but in the way of experiences that I have been able to use to reach others. 'Ahavah' Writings for the Journey is the result of those experiences in my life as well as in the Family God has blessed me with. The purpose in sharing these writings with you is simply meant to be a bit of encouragement to all those that read them and to remind us all that our 'Ahavah' (Love) Journey with Christ is indeed a continuous journey. God’s promises are so wonderful and they are always anew. As believers God promises us that he will be faithful to us, all we have to do is trust in Him for guidance. It is my hope that this book will help you, the reader, do so.

Matthew was born in Bartlesville, OK and has served in ministry since the age of 14. Most of his experiences in ministry have focused around Missional Outreach, Children’s Ministries and Worship. Matthew (or Matt) holds a Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies with an emphasis in Christian Education, Worship, and Pastoral Care from Oklahoma Wesleyan University. Traci (Matt’s wife) holds a Bachelor of Science in Global Studies from the same university. They met at OWU, fell in love, and married in September of 2010. Together they have two children. Their daughter, Leyla, was born in December of 2012 and their son, Caleb, was born in October of 2014. Both children bring great joy into their lives. Writing is both a passion and a hobby for Matt. ‘Ahavah’ Writings for the Journey is his first book. Matt is very excited to see what God will do with this book and has really enjoyed putting it together. Much of what is in this book is from Matt’s devotional blog: www.gathering-777-together.blogspot.com. Matt’s prayer is that this book will minister to believers in love, equip them better for service in God’s Glory, and build the body of Christ in edification through the encouragement and grace they have been blessed with.
