About Steve Austin

I am Steve Austin, a thirtysomething husband and dad. I'm a writer, speaker, and advocate of second chances. I write about the messiness of grace, finding Christ in the midst of mental illness, the struggles with childhood trauma and the ordinary, powerful ways God heals us. I also complain about how it sucks to be a Christian right now, but I’m doing it anyway.


I am not a politician, a theologian or a professional Christian. They have written plenty of blogs, but for me, this faith journey is not about being on the left or right or judging the actions of others.  It’s about taking my story and using it to positively impact others with similar struggles.  It’s about giving all those rotten things in life meaning, and eventually a purpose.
