Aaron Sullivan is an Average Joe from Bennington, VT who has overcome mass tragedy and adversity. From the death of his family and obesity he has endured and with courage has overcome. 

His goal is to reach the young men that are lost and either being the person to listen to them or getting them connected with an older/seasoned man that can listen and guide them.

Aaron was born into a hurting family.  His parents had dealt with the loss of their first-born son and one of their only supports within a few months of each other.  He played sports in school but stopped mid-high school when his friends convinced him to check out the computer classes and that skill set took off.  Even attended the Skills USA competition for the classes.

Now he am a happily married to his best friend, which is a funny story.  And the Lord blessed them with the children they have prayed for.  Aaron prayed for a son to carry on the Sullivan name and Stacie prayed for a little girl.

From Aaron:

I am no expert in any areas, I know I joked around when I was younger being a jack of all trades, but a master of none. I tend to learn or take in knowledge to have tools that I may need for any given moment.

If anything, I can bring to the podcast is an example of hope and the Lord’s grace.   Due to the fire, I had tried to fill the void with everything and anything, BUT God’s grace was there and protected me against my poor choices.

And when you feel like you are so far from Him, He has this way of being right there even when all you expect is His back facing you, but He is there with arms wide open for you.

Boots on the Ground Moment:

Grab a battle buddy and have him expose the areas in your life so that these things do not consume you.
