Relatable, touching, and oddly poignant, John-Michael shares stories from his every day life that will either leave you crying, laughing, or just crying. Either way, work through life’s sometimes-funny-sometimes-sucky lessons along with John-Michael as he does what we all should do a little more of: live.

Hi, It has been an honor and great adventure to spend time with this vocal diary and post it vulnerably for the world to hear. It feels like it is time for me though to process through other creative outlets. This outlet has been a huge blessing and I hope it was somewhat inspirational to you as it was to me. The next episode will include three more topics and some more heartfelt thoughts. I will not say it is the final as I am uns...

Woof, My friend had his truck stolen today :( The police found it though! Somewhere on a dirt road maybe 45 miles from its home. This hurt my heart. The thieves stole a lot of other things which belonged to the owner. This too hurt my heart. God knows where everything and everyone is!! Yawn, it's only after midnight here, WHOOPS. I will try not to do that again. Hope you are doing ok :) Romans 8:28 is read. Topics start at 13:2...

To when the love of money is the root of all evil To when you question buying gold 666 pounds of gold is worth 17....

How YOU doin? The weather has been either nice and spring-like or ICE COLD. BRRRRRRR. I am moving across town soon. I just deleted all my social media accounts (TikTok, Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram, Linkedin) and talk about why. Talk includes the season of lent and my previous porn addiction. 5:09 to 9:26. By the way, if you delete social media they give you 30 days to change your mind. (This shocked my therapist too!) He...

Topics start at 8:07! To when there is the speed of light To when I went hunting To when I shot a gun I also menti...

Well hello there friend, I made another batch of cookie dough and cannot figure out which ingredient I forgot to add :( Does anybody know? Or maybe I put too much butter in it. Bleh! I think all of these topics are somewhat dangerous so please either do not try them at home or be very very careful when doing them. Topics start at 6:51! To when I made a giant snapper bomb To when you smell too many chemicals To when I dug that snow ...

It's been a journey and thanks for coming along. Here I express some frustration but it is just an observation. I also confess my impatience with not getting what I want. Yikes!

BLLLAAAAAAAHHHHHH, Hi :) All of the sudden it feels like there's a lot of stuff to get done. (Deep breaths.) Church and God and Jesus are sprinkled throughout this.

To when you play computer games Genesis 3: 8-9 To when you feel slowed down Romans 8: 28 To when it's hard to get moving ...

Wow this year is FLYING by! (Smirk) If you are sensitive to current events in the United States, I share my Georgia senate runoff story which runs from 1:26 to 4:43. Other than political vortexes, I guess there is a polar vortex coming to Georgia soon so standby for how it goes. New things with me... I have an inhaler now, but hopefully won't need to use it ever. I have a desk job where I joyfully utilize my computer and commu...
