About

Hi, my name is Travis.

I was raised in a Christian home, have gone to church all of my life, and have been teaching in a Christian high school for over 10 years. However, despite “growing up Christian,” I had a lot of questions which led to a lot of doubts. My questions went years without answers. My doubts went years without relief. But, I studied, and God directed. I thought, and God guided. I prayed, and God blessed.

By the grace of God, I have come a long way.

Even after finding many answers, it sometimes seems that I have more questions now than ever. Nevertheless, the more I study the more I find my belief in God confirmed, my reliance on the Bible deepened, and my faith in Jesus Christ strengthened. As a result, my view of culture with all of its variations and issues is enlightened. To quote C.S. Lewis,

I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.

The work I do on Bread & Fish is the overflow of a personal journey. Here, I share my thoughts on theology, apologetics, and culture. The questions are real, the discussion is clear, the thinking is solid…and the sarcasm is frequent.

I hope you enjoy.
