AC180 Interviews: Josh Parks

I’ve heard this story multiple times straight from the source as well as read it a few other times and still it never fails to leave me in awe of God’s miraculous 180 power. My youth pastor used to say “we can’t determine what hand of cards we’re dealt, but it is up to us how we play those cards.” Yet, in some cases it seems God steps in and says “hey, you’ve played your hand all wrong… it’s my turn.” The honest truth is, based on the story below, there is no logical explaination for the AC180 you’re about to read; as with so many 180s, it was completely supernaturally manifested by the Holy Spirit… So grab a cup of coffee, Josh has a lot he wants to say, and it’s worth every word.

Aaron’s story is one in which a new son teaches a young father about unconditional love, grace and daily taking up his cross in order to further his heavenly Father’s kingdom. Enjoy.

Explain the situation surrounding your complete 180?
I had the absolute blessing of growing up in a Godly home. I was saved early in my middle school years and have probably been saved more times then I can count since then. Yet I would say that my journey with Christ truly began 7 years ago with the birth of our son Austin. My thirst, and desire to serve and be the husband, father, friend and man that Christ has called me to be became relentless about 2 years ago….
