Welcome to Deus Vincit (“God Conquered”). My name is Douglas Wood (“Doug”, “Woody”, or “that guy” by friends and acquaintances) and I love to write. The problem with my writing is that I seldom have time to complete writing down the thoughts which I have … so, that means that this blog is only a small percentage of what I begin and an even smaller percentage of what I’d like to say. But, I suppose that’s okay, and I’m grateful to you (my readers) for stopping by and sharing my thoughts with me.
Quick facts about me:
- I am first and foremost a Christian (I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and is the means by which all men can be saved)
- I have a wonderful wife and two children (a son and a daughter)
- I am a former United States Air Force Officer
- I work in finance – and I can’t stand my job (I hope it never defines me)
- Though I’m originally from Southern California, I’ve lived in several other states and even overseas (I now live in Norman, OK)
- I believe in Sola Scriptura, Sola Fide, Sola Gratia, Solo Christo, and Soli Deo Gloria (and I hope that comes out in my writing)
- I love football (called soccer here in the States) – something which will come up in my writing from time to time, no doubt
I chose the name “Deus Vincit” for this blog because I believe in a God who conquered sin through Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection. I pray that God will also conquer your heart and mind so that you may experience the renewal of both through His gracious leading. And I hope that my thoughts on this site will help direct your focus to the God in whom we live and move and have our being.
I welcome comments and questions and will do my best to respond to any that are posted.
