Gabriel K Smith – My Story

You have a story. I have a story. We all do.

Stories are the coalescence of our human experience, pulling together the threads of events, places, relationships, emotion, and circumstances into a tapestry of meaning.

This is my story. It’s not complete yet. I’m still in it.

I’m the oldest of three boys, a husband to Janet, a daddy to Madeline, a friend of Jesus above all.

I was a soldier. I learned to lead men when I was young. I fought in a war. I learned to be angry, then sad, and then grateful.

I was a student. I read things in ancient languages. I learned to think. I learned there’s a lot I don’t know.

I was an adventurer. I lived in far away places. I was a stranger in a strange land. I learned that my world is not the world.

I am an entrepreneur. I get much joy from creating new things. In this space, I still feel like an imposter sometimes.

I am a pastor. I love helping people find and follow Jesus. I am learning how to find and follow Jesus too.

I am a coach and friend to leaders. I love helping people discover their unique gifts and make a difference in the world.

I am alive. I am becoming. I am a story.
