My name is Devan Hare. My wife Kayla and I live in Norman, Oklahoma. We both have love for Jesus and his church. We also both have a passion for ministry. Our daughter Violet was born in March, and she has introduced us to one of the greatest adventures we could imagine. Recently, Kayla and I decided that it would be best for our lives if I stayed at home with Violet and pursued my dreams through writing.
About a year ago, I had a wake up call of sorts. I was sitting in a coffee shop in Los Angeles where Kayla and I had our first date, and I was hit with the most surreal realization. I saw myself five years ago in that same place, telling her about all the dreams I had for life. I told her how I wanted to travel around teaching evangelism and helping others become confident in sharing the gospel. Looking back, I realized I'd given up on those dreams. The life I was leading could easily be categorized as a "typical" life, and in most ways it was. I liked watching sports, I went to church, and I loved spending time with friends and family. From the outside my life didn't look much different from the rest of the world. I didn't like that, so I started down a path of risk and faith with God that led me here.
I created this website as a place to reflect on life. My hope is that in the process others might learn through my experiences, knowledge, and failures.
