About Me

I’m a doctor from Adelaide, Australia. This blog is a series of short stories from my life. Some posts are overtly about spirituality, others are not.

I grew up going to a local church since I was a kid. But church was mainly an outlet for me to hang out with nice people and make friends outside of school. A lot of it was ‘going through the motions’.

In 2010, a series of bizarre and unusual things occurred in my life that I couldn’t explain. I felt God in my life in a real and personal way for the first time and became a Christian. I intensely studied the Bible and had a really enjoyable 2 years.

In 2012, my sister suddenly and unexpectedly committed suicide. In a coincidence, I was creating this blog on the same day it happened. It became a place for me to express my raw emotions during the worst time of my life.

Over the next few years, I continued writing as a way to process grief, and the problems I faced during medical school. I somehow managed to continue my studies and passed all my exams over the next few years.

In 2015, I graduated and got married. I worked as a doctor for a couple years in hospital. There were great times. I made some friends for life and had some unforgettable experiences. But there were also very bad times. I was bullied at work. I was forced to give up all of my holidays/leave. Lawyers became involved. It was a bad time. I became burned out and exhausted. I almost quit medicine. I was sad and confused. I also realised that I was still grieving and confused about my past.

In 2018, I deferred my training to be a GP (Family Doctor) to take a year off. I spent a year travelling the world with my wife to work through things and get some space. Whilst travelling, I asked a lot of questions of the world and of Christianity.

In 2019, I started work again as a GP trainee and completed my training in 2021. I now currently work part time as a qualified GP and part time in teaching at the University of Adelaide.

  3. Hi,
    I just want to say thank you for posting your 75 verses that got you through your med exams! They are helping me now as I go through my last year and a half of masters in teaching. I have struggled previously with a fear of failure. I am much better this year around and do not suffer that much from anxiety. But I have suffered from doubt and insecurity.
    But God is so good and constantly reminds me to draw close to Him. And He reminded me of your website which I have marked as one of my favourites on my mobile.

    Thank you once again. Your favourite verses are helping me.
    God bless you with a continual understanding and experience of God’s love in Jesus! Amen! 😀

  4. So I take the MCAT for the first time on Friday & my friend msg me this link to your blog…at first I wasn’t sure what to expect because prior to this I was feeling very anxious & scared for what’s ahead and I just discovered that the way my name is spelled on the MCAT registration is different from the way it’s spelled on my ID (w/ & w/o a hyphen) so here I am freaking out and in totally despair but….after reading through part of your blog I have hope that God doesn’t bring us this far to leave us…& as terrible as I’m feeling now, I know that that will change. So thank you

  5. Hi there! I just wanted to share with you that I came across your blog while searching for scriptures to get me through Nursing school, and your 75 verses has been such a blessing that I share with others in Nursing school as well. I love your testimony for I can relate to being radically saved in 2013 after a point of the deepest anguish and desperation I was faced with as well! The Lord is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I am excited to see where He leads me for His Name sake and glory with Nursing Midwifery and every other area of my life. Blessings!

  6. Awesome blog man ! I praise God for what He did in your life and how He has brought you to a place where you can freely and in such a creative way tell others about Christ. Thanks for the encouraging scriptures that you shared to stand on during exams. Praise God for His Word ! Many blessings to you man.
