Hey, I’m Matt, and I believe that your whole life matters. But if you’re like me, you’re so busy that you’ve forgotten what that really means.
Unintentionally, we lose sight of what truly matters in life and buy in to the lie that professional success will yield personal fulfillment. In short, we do more as a way to be more. But that’s a vicious cycle that leaves us exhausted.
For years, I thought a six-figure income would help validate who I was, so I masked my pursuit within the nobility of providing for my family and living a good life. Beneath it all, I was afraid—afraid of poverty and the opinions of others.
It took a family member’s suicide, going broke, nearly losing my marriage, and a cancer diagnosis for God to finally get my attention. The truth is, the busyness of life had drowned our His voice.
Over the past few years, I’ve dedicated myself to living this reality in the trenches and writing about what I’m learning. As a husband, father to four, small-business owner, author, and speaker, there are constant demands on my time and energy. The struggle is real, but living whole is not impossible. A whole, healthy life begins with perspective.
In the fall of 2013, I started www.mattham.com with three goals: to be authentic, to be engaging, and to be helpful. I want to bring a fresh perspective to the table that challenges the way we think about faith and address the big questions we so often overlook.
Is there a process for living by which we can attain the fullness that we long for?
What does it mean to live a rich life?
Is there an identity and purpose for my life beyond my career?
What story is my life telling and does that story matter?
Is God real and is His word applicable in the midst of my crazy, busy life?
You won’t find easy answers here, but you will find honest exploration of the roots of dissatisfaction, and the richness of everyday life. The heart behind my passion is simple: Your whole life matters. In the midst of personal struggles, professional tension, and spiritual uncertainty, God is at work. Your life is telling an amazing story. I can help you understand that story better as a way to cultivate wholeness in your own life.
I’m glad you’re here and I look forward to walking with you.
