About Jody

I am a 30 year old guy living in Homewood, Alabama; a suburb of Birmingham.

I am a Christian and I am serving as the Associate Minister to Students at Dawson Memorial Baptist Church.  I grew up in Jasper, Alabama.  I am married to my best friend, Jaime who is from Vestavia, Alabama.  I definitely “married up”.  Our newest blessing is our daughter, Avery Wells Gambrell.  She was born on January 20, 2009 and has filled our home with joy (among other things).  I have 2 great sisters, Katy and Mary Bec and 2 wonderful parents, Danny and Nancy.  God has blessed me with an amazing family.

I started blogging a few years ago for personal journaling purposes.  My wife will tell you that I am not a very “deep” person but I do enjoy blogging (as shallow as the posts may be).  I have recently made my blog available to anyone bored enough to have interest in reading it.  Topics will range anywhere from Mexican food to Alabama Football.

I aim to live a life that glorifies God!  My prayer is that I always live my life in view of eternity.
