Start Here

Hello. I’ve recently updated my blog so it’s a little sparse at the moment. Come back soon for a lot more info.

My name is Brandon Cannon…it’s so good to meet you!

If you’re new here, let me sum up what everything on this site is designed to help you do: it’s designed to help you and me become a little more like Jesus every day.

If you’re like a lot of Christ followers (Christians), you have a drive and heart to honor God and know Him better. However, that’s easy said than done. So many things get in the way like modern culture, misappropriation of the Gospel, difficult theologies, and our own negatives wants and desires. Life is a confusing, beautiful mess most of the time.

I get it. I live in that tension with you. I’ve had my share of personal struggles as a fellow Christian, husband, father, entrepreneur, leader, and sometimes just all-around just stinky person. I’ve made so many mistakes as well as walked with people who’ve made several I haven’t. What comes out of it all is a hope and desire to become more like Jesus every day and realizing I haven’t arrived yet.

However, just because we have not made it yet does not mean we should give up. We need to get up every morning, dust off yesterday’s disappointments and bad decisions and embrace the mercy of the Lord, which God’s Word promises are fresh and new each day. That’s what this site and the resources I write are all about. Throughout this site, I share everything I’ve learned and am continuing to learn each day. As I explore new topics, climb new mountains, battle new giants, and gain new ground, I invite you to join in. Let’s walk together.

So what about you? Well, let’s dive in.

There are five ways I think I can help you:

  1. Through the Daily Hope videos. (This is where we go through God’s Word one chapter at a time, pull out a verse, and declare its hope.)
  2. Through my YouTube Channel. (Updated regularly)
  3. Through my ebooks. (coming soon)
  4. Through the Real Life Church YouTube page. (This is where I pastor.)
  5. Through my various subjects and posts.

I’m working on an email subscribe list, so check back soon.

Hoping all of this helps you and me both get a little closer to Jesus every day. Thanks for jumping in!

I have received this question so much that I decided to place the answer somewhere. Eventually, I may need to make it a page of its own. Why? Why would someone who is a husband, a father, a pastor, a leader, a seminary student (again), and so many other things…. why would I decide to also include a blog in my weekly disciplines? The answer is to log my personal journey toward becoming more like Jesus. I don’t want to just ‘come out of the wilderness’ older and hopefully wiser. I want to take you on the journey with me toward becoming more like Jesus every single day. So there it is. You might have been hoping for something Earth shattering but it’s not. It’s just me wanting to become more like Jesus everyday and desiring to take you on the journey too.
