Raised in a faith-centered household, David’s story begins in Milwaukee, where his early encounter with faith at the age of four set the stage for his future. 

His recount of accepting faith on a car ride to Chuck E. Cheese, punctuated by a memorable victory in a video game, beautifully illustrates how profound experiences often intertwine with the simplest moments in life.

David’s journey wasn’t devoid of challenges. His college years at Knox College and later at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire were a time of exploration and self-discovery, a period marked by a "mini prodigal son" phase, as he terms it. This phase was crucial, as it led him to reevaluate his path and solidify his faith on a personal level.

"The rebellion at 18 allowed me to define who I wanted to be," David reflects. This introspection and subsequent transformation highlight a critical lesson: struggles often pave the way to self-realization and growth.

The pandemic brought a pivotal shift in David’s life. Laid off and introspective, he saw an opportunity to reshape his professional life. He realized that integrating his faith into his business wasn’t just an option; it was a necessity. 

This integration was more than a business decision; it was an alignment of his life’s work with his deepest values.

David’s approach to business is a lesson in authenticity and courage. He emphasizes, "If you speak to everyone, you're speaking to no one." Specializing his services for Christian entrepreneurs wasn’t just a niche marketing strategy; it was a declaration of his values.

For our listeners, David’s story is a testament to the power of faith in guiding life choices. It's about finding the courage to integrate personal beliefs into professional life, and the wisdom in seeing struggles as stepping stones to a purposeful existence.
