About Me & reflectingJesus

ReflectingJesus provides free practical tools I have written to encourage individuals and churches in the life of discipleship to Jesus—a discipleship that is intended inspire a deep yearning in people’s hearts to reflect the beauty and glory of Jesus. I believe this is not simply the task of your life now, but a longing that is designed by God to stretch into the eons of eternity.


Currently, I am studying a PhD focusing on education and discipleship at Andrews University and am the President of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Iceland.


All the best for the journey!
