5 Year Anniversary of the Car Accident

06/30/2017

image


Today marks the 5th anniversary of the car accident my friend Moriah were in back in 2012. Our life-versary, as we call it, cause it very well could have killed us. It was sometime around 9pm and we were just a few miles outside of Denton on hwy 380, while it was still a one-lane hwy with no divider or median. A guy driving a pickup (for unknown reasons…possibly falling asleep, maybe looking at his phone, or possibly an assassination attempt due to our mafia connections ;) ) veered over into oncoming traffic and all hell broke loose. The first car he almost hit swerved fast enough to barely miss, went off the road and hit a fence. But the pickup collided with the 2nd car head on - corner to corner - then he flipped (or rolled) and bounced off our windshield. It all happened so fast. I remember seeing the car swerve off the road, then bam! Everything went white. I would be in la la land for the next two weeks, while they worked to keep me alive. Moriah had a nasty break in her ankle from slamming on the breaks during impact. She was a paramedic and was able to tell that my neck had been broken. She told the emergency crews when they got there, and they were very careful with how they handled me, trying not to move my neck (which is really important to not make a spinal cord injury worse). In addition to the broken neck and spinal cord injury, I had a broken sternum, a collapsed lung, and my head was badly gashed. And we both had glass all in our arms and faces. I found out later from my cousin (who is an EMT himself and knew the emergency crew that worked the wreck) that they did not expect to find me alive when they walked up to the car. And they were even more shocked to learn I had survived later and was still alive. Two people didn’t survive that night.

In the two weeks while I was out they put me in a halo (screws into your head to stabilize the neck), drained my lungs a couple times, which kept filling up with fluids, performed surgeries on my neck, gave me a feeding tube, and they had tubes for breathing going down my throat, which I kept subconsciously trying to pull out. They had to tie my arms to the bed so I would stop. Then they gave me the trach. The drugs were 20 times as powerful as morphine, which is what wiped my memory for those two weeks. Although I do remember a few crazy dreams and hallucinations I had. Getting me to breathe with the ventilator was not always easy apparently, because I was fighting everything. On one particularly bad day (I found out later), I kept trying to breath out while the vent was trying to push air in, and trying to breathe in while the vent was trying to pull air out. I would manage to take a gasp of air, then my body would convulse and shake the whole bed as I fought the ventilator. Then gasp again, and convulse again. My oxygen levels dropped dangerously low. My parents were there every day, but my mom had to leave the room that day. She said it was too hard to watch. But everyone kept praying for me, and we got through the day. On another night my heart stopped. Twice actually. For about 10 seconds each time. But then started up again. This was all in those first two weeks that I don’t remember.

After the two weeks, when they brought the drug levels down and I started becoming more coherent, it was the most confusing day of my life. Didn’t know where I was, what had happened, or why so many friends and family members were all hanging out at this strange place. The drugs were still affecting my sense of reality, so I couldn’t really think clearly yet, and it was hard to figure things out. A few nights later I found out I was paralyzed (didn’t know it yet) from a nurse, who let it slip by accident. I was so beat up from the accident that I thought my body was just resting and recovering. I was in a brace that went from my neck down to my stomach, and my brain still thought it could feel my legs, so I didn’t know anything was different. But when I found out….hardest night of my life. Denial was the first step, and it was overwhelming. I did NOT want to accept this new information as actual reality. Talk about some real and honest internal conversations with God. Anger, fear, questioning. I went through it all. And I refused to watch tv in my hospital room, cause I needed to process. I also had to face something else that was extremely uncomfortable for me…..depending on people. I’ve always been very independent by nature, so this stretched the hell out of me. But it was people who were being selfless, who were carrying God’s heart, whether they knew it or not, who really helped get me through that time. Family, friends, therapists, nurses, other patients who were going through the same thing.

After about a month of ICU, I spent two months at Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation, where I started meeting and making friends with other patients who were in the same boat. We all pulled together and supported each other. My therapists (who I’m still friends with and hang out with) helped me go from completely bedridden and unable to even sit up (I literally fell over the first time they sat me up, and they had to catch me), to getting around in a wheelchair and transferring myself. Now I live at my own house, drive myself, I’m back to work part time, back to writing songs, working on a masters degree, and have an entirely different outlook on life. I feel I have a new perspective and value for people than I ever had before. Part of that has come from a more recent spiritual journey I’ve been on, but I really think the root of it goes back to this experience. You start really zooming out and thinking big picture when you go through something like this. At least I did. Of course, it wasn’t the traumatic experience itself that caused all of this. It could have just as easily made me hard and bitter at life. It was the internal journey I chose to go on because of it. I see life differently. I see people and their own life stories differently. I empathize more. I feel more deeply and love more deeply. We’re a part of something bigger than ourselves, and we’re all in this together. I just want to say thank you to everyone who has been a part of my journey. You guys are amazing. Physically, I prob shouldn’t still be here. But I am. And just to be extra cheesy, I’ll finish with some of lyrics from one of my older songs. Lol :)

“And the whole point to see
Is to see that life is worth living
And the whole point of view
Is I see something beautiful
Beautiful in you”

Toddlers, Busyness, and What We Can Learn About Relationship and Identity

05/15/2017

image

by Aaron Logan

So my 3 year old niece (who is so cute) occassionally comes over to my house with her mom (my sister) to hang out for a while. She gets on these missions, which I’ve also seen many other toddlers do, of bringing random things to me that she picked up, or rearranging things in a room….like it’s this VERY important project. Lol She’ll start picking stuff up on the other side of the room and bringing it to me. A couple times she’s gotten into the pantry, and started bringing all the spices, vitamins and supplements, and anything else she could pick up, over to the dining table. She’ll go back and forth and back and forth, getting everything she can and transporting it, and she is very intent, like this is serious business, and she is being very helpful around the house. Lol It cracks me up. So my approach is to first validate her, and then to gently explain I actually need her to move everything back where she got it. And I’ll even demonstrate for her. Then she starts moving everything back, and I make sure to tell her what a good job she’s doing moving it back. Although one time before I could stop her and redirect her, she had emptied the lower shelves, moving everything to the table, and then quickly moved on to the next project elsewhere! I was a bit late on that one. Lol

But here’s what I’m getting at……this basically describes the life of most Christians. Busy busy busy, working very intently on some project (sometimes the project being a task, and sometimes other people, or even themselves), and they go back and forth and back and forth, running in circles, trying to earn their worth and significance. And all the while, Abba is smiling over them, and even chuckling to Himself about how cute they are and how much He wants to hug them. But also, He is gently trying to teach them their true identity and worth, and redirect their effort and “performance” to just enjoying relationship and oneness with Him.

If my niece were 20 or 30 years older, she would understand that she could come see me just to have relationship. We could sit out on the patio, drink some coffee, and talk about life. She doesn’t have to run around trying to rearrange and fix everything in my house. She can enjoy relationship. And if, in the course of talking and having relationship, I ask her to help me with something around the house, then she could help me with whatever it is, but from a foundation of relationship and established significance.

The reality is, in Christ, He finished the work. It’s done. It’s finished. All our running around trying to do this and do that “for God,” and trying to build something ourselves “for the Kingdom,” so we can feel significant is really just like my niece moving random things back and forth around the room as I watch and chuckle. The things she is so intently focused on are just so small and insignificant. But she doesn’t know that. And I don’t rebuke her or punish her for not knowing. I show her love and validation. I meet her where she’s at, just like her parents do. And Abba meets us where we’re at. We may be running around in circles trying to fix this and fix that, and change this and change that, and rearrange everything, because we need to feel like we’re doing something significant for Him (and we want to feel in control). If we’re not busy we don’t feel like we’re worth anything.

He just smiles and loves us. He meets us where we’re at. But as we grow, we can begin to learn that all our “performance” is really just pointless. All our worth and identity are in the Father. We are complete in Him. Just sit down and have some coffee with Him. Enjoy the relationship and the indwelling of His Spirit.

The Subconscious Antagonist

03/11/2017

image

Humans seem to have this inherent need for an antagonist. If there’s someone or something against us, or someone who doesn’t believe in us, we have more fuel to “prove them wrong.” And if that person or entity doesn’t exist, we make them up in our mind - probably coming from something in our own subconscious that is insecure and afraid of failing or not being good enough. Politicians campaign better when they have a spiteful opponent to attack. Sports teams (and their fans) need a rival team to hate (I’m just as guilty on that one). Christians blame the devil for everything (or hate on other denominations….“us” vs “them”). Motivational posts on social media are all about proving “the haters” wrong. 

It just seems to be part of the human psyche to need an antagonist. I’m convinced this is the root of many conspiracy theories as well. Even if it’s a generic “they,” or “them,” and something we unconsciously created in our imagination, it still gives us something or someone to fight against, to measure ourselves against……our strength, our worth, our significance, our validation. Especially when we don’t understand sonship, identity, and our reality in Christ. While there definitely will be people [because of their own issues and insecurities] who criticize and resist you, ultimately the REAL enemy/antagonist is anything inside of you that does not agree with your true reality in Christ.

Comparison and the Internal Search for Identity

02/10/2017

image


One of the ways to start recognizing what goes on inside of us (where identity, worth, and significance are concerned) is to stop and pay attention to how we think and act in certain situations. For example, the moment we find ourselves sizing up someone else, so that we can judge their weaknesses and compare ourselves against them, it’s a great opportunity to stop and ask, why am I doing this?? Am I using them as a way to prop myself up as being “better”?? Why do I need to feel “better” than them?? (As a side note, this is different than making an assessment about someone’s character before you let them manage your money or babysit your kids. You’re not comparing their worth to your worth, you’re just being a good steward of your finances and family.) Back to the main point… What’s going on in me that makes me need to feel better than another human??

When we follow the rabbit hole deep enough, ultimately we find it’s the need to feel worth and significance. Feeling “better” than another human feeds that psychological need. What it actually should tell us is that we have a sense of lack within us. We don’t feel significant enough already, so we need to start comparing, sizing people up, and make ourselves feel better than them in order to boost our sense of significance. Here’s a good exercise I’ve started working on: 1) Try to stop and recognize when this happens, and acknowledge the root. 2) Speak to yourself (your heart, your inner self)… “Aaron (insert your name), you have infinite worth and significance. You are more significant than you can possibly imagine, made in the image of your Father, inseparably connected to Him, complete in Christ, lacking nothing in Him. You’ve been given every spiritual blessing in Christ and are seated in heavenly places. His fullness is in you. What is there to compare?? The thing you’re trying to attain, you already have. Also, they have infinite worth and significance too.” Then visualize (and feel) that need for comparison lift off of you, and begin seeing the infinite value in yourself and in the other person.

Worth and Significance

02/03/2017

image


The need to feel worth and significance is inherently engrained in us as humans. Different personalities respond to it differently, but it’s still there under the surface. Some of us try to fill it with relationships and co-dependence on other people. Some of us by trying to accomplish something great and “proving” ourselves. If we can “change the world” or impress people we’ll feel more significant.


We latch onto things we’re good at, have a natural talent for, or have accomplished to feed that need for value and significance. We seek things like wealth, success, fame, status, and power. Even if we know they don’t ultimately bring fulfillment, our instincts are still drawn to them. Why?? They make us feel valued and significant. We react to humans who challenge, attack, or even just prick at our sense of worth and significance, often by getting defensive, attacking back, or perhaps putting up walls and blocking them out. It affects how we behave, what we pursue, what thoughts we meditate on, and how we interact with other humans…and it affects it every day.

We’re often not aware of this driving force behind our behavior though, because it occurs at such a subconscious/heart level. It’s more felt than thought. I’m not sure that this instinct ever really goes away (in the fact that we’re human), but I believe we can grow and mature in how we respond to it, by learning to meditate and soak in the true source and reality of our value and significance. Like water and sunlight that soak into a plant, over and over and over….eventually it grows. It takes time. Getting things down into our heart/subconscious (our internal auto-pilot) takes time…..a lot of soaking and processing. A lot of meditating on our true value and significance, which is an eternal value and significance as a child of Abba, made in His image, inseparably connected to Him, loved, delighted in, and enjoyed by the Father. Us in Him and Him in us.

The more we soak in that reality, the more it seeps down into our subconscious (our auto-pilot). Then, even though the human instinct is still there to seek and strive for value and significance, our response can elevate to that of one who knows their true worth in the Father……not needing co-dependence to find value, and not needing to “prove” ourselves in order to feel significant. Thus responding in a healthier way to people and situations, living FROM an identity that is rooted in our true value and significance.

Fake It Till You Make It, or Face It...??

11/29/2016

image



At one of my previous jobs (before TDA), I had a boss that was really big into “fake it till you make it.” It was a small, startup company that was just getting going, and they were constantly trying to present a front to everyone that they were bigger than they really were. I discovered something about myself in my time there…..I despise “fake it till you make it.” Lol It grades against my personality and my character. I value realness and genuineness, and “fake it till you make it” is the complete opposite. This really came into play in 2012 when I woke up in ICU to discover I had been paralyzed.

For the next few months (over a year, really) I would face some of the biggest and toughest questions of my life, and crazy emotions to go with them. I could either play the “fake it till you make it” game, and not REALLY deal with anything internally, or I could face it……feel the emotions, ask the tough questions, go on that journey……really face it. I chose to face it. I process much better when I’m alone, so most people didn’t see me go through this process. I would go off by myself when I needed to, so I could really deal with stuff. I cried more tears than a guy would like to admit, I punched things….a lot of things….(I still pack a pretty good punch, even from the wheelchair, Lol)…..I prayed, I asked the hard questions, I zoomed out to the big picture, and I listened.

Facing the process is hard, but so worth it. Piece by piece layers would come off, answers would come, and perspective would shift. I came to know the real me better than I had ever known the real me before. And I came to see the Father like I had never seen Him before. More importantly, I came to see how the Father saw ME in a much deeper way, which is actually at the root of how we see Him. The root of our behavior is our sense of identity, and the root of our sense of identity is how we think the Father sees us and feels about us. But I digress. “Fake it till you make it” would have caused me to avoid that process, and never deal with the big picture questions or the deep identity issues. Facing the process takes a lot longer, but you come out the other side being the real you. Or more real than you were before, and with a different outlook on life.

Longing for Utopia?

09/05/2016

image


There seems to be a consistent theme in the psyche of humans, which spans many cultures, religions, and even the pages of history. We long for utopia. We long for a place of perfection where suffering, hardship, and troubles cease, and everything is rainbows and butterflies. This particularly seems to kick in whenever we face a really difficult loss or hardship. I had to deal with this myself after being paralyzed in a car accident. I began thinking about the life to come, the next realm, the heavenly realm, and how amazing it would be. No car accidents. No paralysis. No sickness. No pain. I thought about it quite a bit actually, even to the point of almost wishing I hadn’t survived the car accident.


While I still look forward to the realm to come, I have since shifted my perspective quite a bit. When we are driven by the concept of utopia somewhere out in the distance, we often miss living in the here and now. We miss out on our true spiritual reality, and in participating in what God is doing in the earth. We fall into “escapism,” just wanting to escape our present circumstances, or even this life and this planet (not necessarily by considering suicide, but through a mental and emotional escape). We begin to despise our life as it is, and fantasize about a utopian future. In doing so, we miss the reality of Christ IN US…….NOW. We miss the reality of being a new creation (2 Cor 5), made complete in Christ (Col 2), and seated in heavenly places (Eph 2)…….NOW. We miss the reality of the Kingdom being in our midst…….NOW (Luke 17:20-21, Matt 12:28). We miss out on getting to participate in the increase of His government and peace…..NOW (Is 9:7).

Unfortunately, many of us have been TAUGHT escapism - in one form or another - as if that’s the only thing we have to look forward to as Christians. Either a utopian dream for our personal destiny and success (coming from the influence of the motivational / self help industry), in which hope is always out there in the foggy distance…..somewhere out there in fantasy land our dreams for breakthrough, significance, and success will be realized……or a mentality of Jesus coming to zap us up off of this planet so we can get the heck out of here.

I absolutely look forward to the day I step into the next realm. I truly believe that will be the utopia we all long for. And I also believe there are wonderful things ahead for me in this life, on this planet. But I no longer embrace escapism. I have chosen to shift my focus and awareness to the fullness we’ve been given in Christ, NOW. Seated in heavenly places, NOW. A new creation in Christ, NOW. The Kingdom in our midst, NOW. And looking to Isaiah 9:7 as my vision for the world and the cosmos…… “Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end.”

From Routine to Enjoyment

03/11/2016

The more we become aware of how much the Father loves us and delights in us, the more our relationship with Him shifts from routines and spiritual disciplines to enjoyment. When you realize He enjoys you, it frees you to enjoy Him!

Control

03/11/2016

______________________________________________


If my paradigm is that I have to have everything under a feeling of “control” before I can rest/live in the fullness of Christ, then I can never truly live in peace and joy, because I’ll always feel beneath and behind. I’m always at the bottom of some mountain that has to be climbed, and I never actually “get there.” Life is always a struggle and stressful, and my walk with the Father is about moments of “relief” rather than consistent fullness.

Sense of Self? Or Fullness in Christ?

03/11/2016


I noticed something a while back that I was completely unaware of for most of my life, and now I can’t help but notice it all the time. Women tend to have a natural self-awareness that men don’t have. Women are much more aware of how they “feel” about themselves…. their sense of self. You even see it on social media, in the things women like, post, and share from the “motivational mom” pages they follow, and such. Lol “You are brave, you are bold, you are strong, believe in yourself!” Things like that.


Guys don’t post those kinds of things. And here’s why: Men ARE affected by how we feel about ourselves, but we’re not AWARE of how we feel about ourselves. A guy can spend his whole life being driven on auto-pilot by a  need to “prove” himself, but never know THAT is what is driving him. He may be on a mission to prove how strong, tough, determined, smart, talented, or successful he is, but never know WHY he is chasing that. He needs to FEEL like he is a man, he just doesn’t KNOW that he needs to feel it. There’s a disconnect between the consciousness and the subconscious.


Subconsciously, he has emotional needs like anyone else. But at a conscious level, he’s only focused on what he is chasing…. the career, the success, the respect, etc. It’s like every guy is building a brick wall. Inside the wall is his true sense of self, which operates on autopilot at a subconscious level. This is where his sense of self is found….how he FEELS about himself. But he’s building a wall around it to protect it, and he’s so focused on the wall, he’s not aware of what’s inside the wall.


A guy can be so focused on being the super fit guy at the gym, because he wants a great body, so he can FEEL attractive and respected…. but he doesn’t know that last part. Lol The same thing with being a successful businessman, or a talented musician, or anything else. My first reaction when I stumbled across this was to start hyper-focusing on myself. How am I doing today? What was my motivation for doing that? Am I building my sense of self today so that I don’t have to prove anything to anybody?? It became constant performance at an internal level. Always jumping through hoops trying to “improve” myself and my motives for everything.


But you know what the simplest, most direct solution is?? Living in an awareness of our fullness in Christ. If I live with a disconnect from that reality (my fullness in Christ), I will chase anything and everything else like a hamster on a wheel. In fact, we even put this on people in our churches. “Here are 5 things you need to work on this week so you can improve yourself.” Next week it’s 5 new things, then 10 new things, then…..the lists never stop, because it’s never enough. You can never improve yourself enough. 


Men tend to have one or two hamster wheels, while women tend to have a couple dozen. Lol She’ll have one for her spiritual walk, one for her physical fitness/health, one for her marriage, one for parenting, one for each friendship, one for her emotional health, one for her career or personal ministry, on and on and on. And she feels the need to keep ALL wheels moving ALL the time, which keeps her running around from wheel to wheel nonstop, trying to keep them all going. Fix this, change that, adjust this, more of this, less of that, start doing this, stop doing this other thing, go go go, etc.


For guys, we have one or two that we tend to focus on, depending on the guy. Now I’m all for getting better at my job, and with my health, and learning how to communicate better in relationships, etc…. but either I live in an awareness of my fullness in Christ, or I don’t. Either I live as a son, in the delight of my Father, or I don’t. Either my worth, significance, and identity come from HIS fullness IN me, or I spend my life chasing it, and building brick walls that are never big enough and never good enough. Once I can separate who I am in my spirit from how successful, or how smart, or how talented I am externally, I can be free from that hamster wheel.


For me, it was a 2-step process that I’m still growing in. First, realizing that men (and that I was no exception) have emotional needs that operate on auto-pilot under the surface, needing to PROVE ourselves so we can FEEL significant. But then second, learning how to NOT try to be my own source and my own savior in that realization. But to start living in an awareness of the fullness of Christ. He is my source of worth, of significance, of fullness, of identity, of everything. And I need to increase my awareness that I am in Him and He is in me. That I live in His fullness. From that place of resting in His fullness, I can now work on my career, my health, my relationships, etc, without finding my source in those things.


I still forget, I still lose my awareness. But living in an awareness of His fullness is now the goal, instead of building brick walls and chasing hamster wheels. ;)

He’s my Source

02/18/2016


The wrong question is, “How will God meet my need?” The right question is, “How will I live today if I am confident He is my Source?” - Mike Q Daniel



Personal Paradigms

02/17/2016


Everyone has a paradigm, a lens that we see life through. Some people have a sin-based paradigm. Everything is about sin, ALL the time. Talk about sin, pray about sin, sing about sin, look for sin in the Word. There is no resting in the righteousness of Jesus. Some have a trial paradigm. Life is one big trial, ALL the time. You’re always trying to climb some preverbal mountain or overcome something, and never getting there. Something is always against you and you never quite get to that place of enjoying victory. There is no resting in the victory of Jesus. At least not for more than 5 seconds. Some have a “warfare” paradigm. Their value and self worth are found in how much “warfare” they do for the Kingdom of God. The forces of darkness are huge and overwhelming, and there are demons behind everything, always taking back over after we get a victory, so we always have to do more warfare. There is no resting in the victory of Jesus.

There are certainly more, but notice they all have a common root: Self worth and self performance. Until we get the issue settled that we are 100% IN CHRIST…….righteous in Him, forgiven in Him, brought to fullness in Him, ONE in Him, seated in heavenly places in Him, living in His finished work and His victory, and enjoying the love, affirmation, and validation of the Father as sons and daughters, we will always gravitate back to another paradigm.

Thoughts From Today

12/25/2015

____________________________________________________________

In the evangelical church, we’re often quick to blame the devil for things, not taking into consideration other factors that may be going on. For example, if we’re having a really rough day, battling anxiety or depression, or just being really negative and cynical towards our self and others, it might be one of the following:


1) Physical / practical – lack of sleep, stress, fatigue, forgetting to eat, hormone imbalances, etc. All of these have very real effects on our emotions and psyche.


2) Belief system / paradigm – How do I think the Father sees me right now? Is He happy with me today? Do I still have His approval and the delight of His heart? Or do I feel like He’s distant and unhappy with me because of my recent performance? Have I been “failing,” according to what I think the Father expects of me, so I am feeling defeated, unapproved, and cynical because of that? And now I project it onto others? Do I feel like the purpose of life is to always overcome some mountain, some kind of obstacle, or storm, so I’m always underneath something fighting to get to the top? And if I have a day where I don’t feel like I’m doing very well at that, could it be affecting how I see myself, making me negative, anxious, or irritable?


Learning to live in the delight and approval of the Father, and the fullness of Jesus, because we are in Christ, can change our entire perspective on life. 


Being depressed, moody, or cynical might not be the devil attacking you. It might be something physical or hormonal, or it might be the result of a personal belief system & paradigm.

Update on Music

10/18/2015

____________________________________________________________

Hey guys, just a quick update musically. I realize I haven’t released anything officially since the Freedom Calls album in 2009. Life took an unexpected turn with the car accident in 2012. However, I’ve been doing a lot of writing over the last 3 years, and even modifying my style and lyrical approach, sort of finding a new, fresh sound. Really believing that 2016 is the year to get back in the studio and release a new project. Would love your prayers concerning all of that, and for the Father to direct everything according to His plan.

Thank you!
Blessings,

In the non-denominational world, it’s easy to slip into the trap of finding our identity in how super-spiritual we are…… how much spiritual “warfare” we do, how much we operate in the “gifts,” how much we "hear” the Holy Spirit and are led by the Spirit. (Those things aren’t necessarily bad, we were just never meant to find our identity in them.) When we feel like we’ve been doing good in these areas, we feel really good about ourselves. When we haven’t been doing so good, we feel guilty and distant from God. We’ve missed the point entirely. The fullness is Christ himself (Col 2). That way of life is just a super-spiritual way of finding our identity and self worth in our performance. Our identity as sons and daughters should ONLY and ALWAYS be found IN Christ. It’s all about Him. ‪

Freedom Calls is not only a fresh sound in a flooded market....it's a cry of the heart. Aaron's desire is to see freedom released in people's lives. Freedom from sin, from bondage, from mindsets that hold us back and tell us we're not worth anything. Freedom to be who God has called us to be, and to do what He's called us to do.

Aaron was involved in music from a very young age, learning songs on piano from his dad by the age of 9, and learning to play the drums by age 11. At 12 he and his best friend started their first band and began a journey of songwriting, performing, and worship leading that carried on through college. In 2007 God opened a door for him to become the worship leader at a new church in Denton called The Bridge. It was during his first year at The Bridge that songs like Thankful and Your Love Is Everything were written. "It was like a new day and a new page in the story of my life. There was a new intimacy and dependency on God, and I think the songs just came out of that", says Aaron. He continues to lead worship at The Bridge and is excited to see what God does in this new chapter of his life.
