Be on the look out for unexpected beauty. Be aware of the interruptions accompanied by beauty. It’s here we find the joy of birds. It’s here we find that God is not only aware of us but actively wooing us. For the interruptions are mere signposts—beautiful placards of joy point directly at the One who loves us.

Tim's authored four books, including the children's book Shine So Bright and the critically acclaimed Veneer: Living Deeply in a Surface Society. He studied beauty in the works of C.S. Lewis for his PhD under Alister McGrath. When he's not scratching poetry, or chasing the scholar's craft, you can find him carving up the trails of the nearest national forest on his Salsa El Mariachi 29er.

He lives in Charlotte, North Carolina with his wife and three pixie-daughters, and two acres of Great Horned Owls.
