My name is Brad Smalley. I am from a small town located in central New York called Morrisville. I am currently attending Liberty University where I continue to study Theology and Apologetics. The journey up to this point has certainly not been what I or anyone else could have guessed. I grew up in a great family environment. My father is a pastor of a small Baptist Church and my mother accompanies him in serving the church and community. I received Christ as my savior at a young age, but the fire did not hold its own until later in my teen years. It was the summer following my first year in college that God really shook me and called me to ministry. It was then that God guided me to work at a youth Bible camp, Camp Bayouca. With hesitation, I took the leap of faith and never looked back. God changed my heart and burdened my heart to serve those around me. My passion for writing emerged from this awakening and I began to write simple devotionals for myself. But as time passed, God pressed on my heart to share with others what he continues to teach me everyday.
While writing is certainly something that will stay with me for many years to come, God has blessed me with ability to stretch my use. I am fortunate to be a part of Liberty University’s track and Field team. Athletics has always held to my heart since I was very young. I am fortunate to be a part of a high level organization where I look to continue serving and influencing the lives around me while making my body a slave and doing what I love.
As far as the present goes, that is where I am at now. The fun part about this page is that it continues to grow as time goes. My future aspirations are far from concrete. As God directs, I continue to walk.
