Hello World!

I thought to myself, why not leave that “sample title” as is?

I mean, I am putting myself out there in front of the world by doing this right? Apparently a minuscule part of the world mostly comprised of my family, friends and a few others who may get lost and stumble on my blog.

This will merely serve as an introduction to me, myself, and I. Who I am and what this blog may be concerning. I say may since let’s face it, it could change from time to time based on my mood and whatever it is I am going through day to day.

I have always liked to write, and yet I am horrible at typing, to say the least.

So, my name is Daniel, and I live in Henderson NV. I was married to my high school sweetheart, and we have three amazing children. Seven months ago we separated after more than 20 years married and almost 28 years together. Now it’s 0ver in the eyes of the courts and the woman I have loved more than half my life.

Maybe more on that later, I don’t know.

I also grew up in a divorced home, and while I don’t let either define me or who I am as a person I hate this and I never wanted to be divorced. I love my family and I have been fighting to keep it together for years. Unfortunately by myself.

I am a Christ follower so I believe God sent His son to die on the cross for my sins and yours. I’m far from perfect, definitely not without sin and I am not great at quoting scripture if at all. I am a work in progress. Because of this and what He has done in my life, I do my best to serve others and share His story of life change in me. He delivered me from many addictions, and I work my recovery daily.

I work from home for a small solar company here in Henderson while doing my best to grow my own digital media business. I have been consulting with businesses and marketing online in some form or another for over a decade. I like to play guitar, spend time with family, hang out with friends, shoot guns, sing when I’m alone in my car, card magic and I geek out over growing businesses, especially in the online world. I did start CrossFit a week ago, but it was only a week ago so I don’t think I can say “I do CrossFit” just yet.

Since the separation, I have been living with a family that I initially treated as a friendly acquaintance. Now, they are family in every sense of the word. In a lot of ways so much more than that too. God loves on me daily through them; there is no doubt.

I love my family and my friends dearly. If it weren’t for them, I simply would not have survived these last several months.

I am not sure what I want to do with this…. I have had this site for a long time, and I have started a personal blog before. You can still see it at https://danielensing.wordpress.com, So I don’t know if I will be consistent enough for people to come back, or even if people will take the time to read it. I think it’s more for me and working through things, I think. If somebody gets something out of it, that’s a bonus. Maybe more of a diary of sorts to get some stuff out and document life as I go through this season. I don’t know but if you made it this far down the page, thanks. Drop a comment down below and say hi.

  • Wow. It was amazingly wonderful reading through your life story. Thanks for sharing your experience. It must really be hard leaving without your wife and also from a divorced family. But thanks to Christ for giving himself for us. He loved us while we were yet sinners.

    Am an African, Ghana to be precise. Its all about Jesus. Jesus Christ is the best thing that ever happened to my life. There is an unending spring of Joy in doing the Kingdom work of God.
    Saints, there are much joy in heaven awaiting us

    This is all I would say for now
    See you soon.

  • Hello, I hope to improve my life and faith through this blog. But this will be effective through your support. I have a prayer request” pray for my life because I am afraid of losing my health and life as well due to a serious disease.”

  • Hi Daniel,
    I found your blog via Instagram. I am sorry to read of the struggles you are ‘going through’, (keep going) but be encouraged that writing is indeed highly therapeutic and I don’t think I would have survived without this gift in my life. I would also encourage you to remember your namesake from the Bible who was not alone in the fire; God walked with him.
