My name is Travis Gilbert. I am happily married to Dianna, and we have been joyfully blessed with three boys: Luke, Noah and Ethan. Born and raised in small-town Indiana. Lived for an enjoyable four years in beautiful northern Virgina while on active duty in the U.S. Army. Garland, TX is now home, and there I am privileged to be on the pastoral staff of the Rodgers Baptist Church, an independent Baptist congregation.

This blog is a running commentary of my views on topics and issues that resonate with me. This means my blog-posts will normally be focused on theological, cultural, political, and sports topics. The views expressed on this blog are my own, and do not necessarily reflect the opinions, views, and positions of my family and/or church.

I hold to a high view of scripture, meaning that I believe the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant, word of God. It is my goal to know it, understand it, and apply it. On this blog I have listed links to articles, websites, videos, and books that I have found to be profitable and/or interesting. Just because I have linked to something does not mean that I agree with every position therein affirmed. I have made it a practice to read, not only the people with whom I am in agreement, but people with whom I do not uniformly agree; by such a practice I have been challenged and sharpened. Gauge what I believe and hold true by what I write and post; not by what those who are linked here write and post.

You are invited to comment on all that you read here, and not just if you agree with me. I aim to be respectful in my posts, and I expect you to be respectful in your comments.
