Hi I'm Luke Finley!
If you're like most young adults, you're excited about your life and the opportunities in front of you. But you also have fears and concerns: will you ever like your job? Will you ever get married? Will you ever make a difference in the world? Your dreams and ideas for the future seem distant and unattainable.
I know the struggle, because I've been exactly where you are, trying to work through the disappointment, hurt, and occasional successes of my twenties. Your twenties are hard, as you figure out who you are and where you're going. As I went through this decade of life, God used my ups and downs to show me the life-changing power of the gospel again and again.
Right now, there's a lot of things being written for people in their twenties. Some of it's helpful, but much of it only addresses the outward actions without going deep into the thoughts, feelings, and desires. Like an iceberg, the things beneath the surface are our biggest threat. That's why I use my story and experiences as a jumping off point to take you down into what's really going on in your heart.
That's what I write about: how the gospel impacts every aspect of your life, from your job to your relationships to where you live. I write about my experiences so that you'll know you're not alone, drawing lessons out of my life so that you'll be better equipped to work through your own experiences. I think big things are possible for you, and want to see you reach your potential!
A Little Background About Me
I grew up in a small town in Kansas, and after going to seminary in Pittsburgh, I spent a year in South Sudan working with church leaders there. I then moved to New York City in 2014 and started an apartment cleaning business in Brooklyn, before later working at Redeemer Presbyterian Church. Now, I’m focusing on writing and the gray area between church and society.
