In early 2009, I set out on my first adventure as an adult. While in my first semester at Indiana Wesleyan University, I received my calling into full-time missions. That summer I went on my first two missions trips where my calling was confirmed! After returning home, and being denied entrance into some missions organizations for reasons like my age or lacking a degree, I knew that God was calling me to start Ankura Ministries to help others like myself, who are called and have a passion to do big things for the Kingdom!

When I started Ankura Ministries in 2009 I knew right away that I would need a website to help get the message out about the work we were doing. This caused me to go down the road of teaching myself how to do web design. Over the past 10 years I have grown and learned so much and have created numerous websites, as well as teaching myself some branding and graphic design skills along the way!

In 2016, while roaming around a craft shop with my wife, I stumbled upon the candle making aisle and thought that it would be a good hobby and possible source of income. After making my first batch of candles, friends and family fell in love with them, I knew then that I could make a business out of this. I then started investing in some higher quality ingredients, which has made a big difference, and I have been selling out ever since! Take a look at my shop and remember to burn responsibly!

In the summer of 2016, I became a father for the first time. I have now taken on the role of primary caregiver to our sons Liam & Levi. Come on in, as we share our lives and adventures with you all in the hope of encouraging, inspiring, and entertaining! It has been a wild ride with these crazy little boys we like to call The LiMurs. Here, I like to share photos and videos from our lives together. You can also read about some of my thoughts on fatherhood and recaps of some of our crazy adventures.

Over 10 years ago I switched from being a coffee drinker to being a tea drinker. Like most Americans, I started off by drinking tea bags from the grocery store and slowly over time realized that there was a far grander world of tea than the grocery store would lead you to believe. I have grown from tea bags, to loose leaf tea, and have researched and experimented with teas from around the world and ways to steep them with respect to the cultures they derive from. This website is a snapshot into my journey in search of True Tea!
