About The Why Chaser

Thanks to a turbulent relationship with the church and various beliefs about God and Jesus, I have an infatuation with chasing why’s, how’s and what’s. I also love writing and sharing what I’ve thought about, read about and heard about. So here we are.

I won’t take it personally.

Happy reading!
