Hi, my name is Andrew Voigt and thanks for joining me in this conversation about God, dreams, creativity, and brokenness. I like to consider myself an artist, full of ideas conveyed through various creative expressions. But the more accurate picture is that I’m a broken human being constantly in need of grace, always thirsty for hope, and longing for something beyond my own frail story.
I’m also a follower of Jesus constantly learning new things about what it means to be loved unconditionally by a God I’ve always felt was so far away (yet, so close), ridiculously in love with my best friend, addicted to way too much coffee, a sports nut, and a complete sci-fi nerd.
Andrew Voigt is a writer currently living in Charlotte with his wife Beth and their orange cat, Pumpkin. After spending two years in Los Angeles pursuing a career as an actor, he returned with unmet expectations and broken dreams. Prompted by a close friend, he began writing about his journey – one that is filled with dreams, anxiety, depression, faith, doubt, hope, and the constant struggle with grace. He holds a B.S. in Communication Studies from Liberty University in Virginia and has studied acting at the Film Actors’ Studio of Charlotte.
Most of these posts discuss what I’m learning in my own journey. My ultimate mission is to share hope and to tell you that your life matters, regardless of how your dreams may not have gone as planned. The mission is to tell you that it’s alright to to wrestle with depression, to doubt, to be broken, to struggle with your dreams, and to give you permission to rest in the grace of a God you may feel is far away.
