This is Me

My name is Sean Kerr.  I graduated from Anderson University in SC a couple years back, where I studied Art, concentrating in Painting and Drawing.  ‘STKerr’ is an art thing.  That is how I sign all my art work (First Initial, Middle Initial, Last Name).  No, I wont tell you my middle name (except that I did in a post, good luck finding it).

I was born and raised in the Catholic Church, taught all the traditions of Religion, but never knew who God was.  Until the middle of my Junior year of college, I was a practicing Catholic. Now I follow a Faith that I truly believe in with all my heart.

I am still discovering the mysteries of God, as it is a constant Journey (hince, the name of this Blog), each and every day.  These writings are the adventures that God has blessed me with.

I am a photographer and artist.  I write and share stories.  I one day hope to teach Art at the collegiate level, passing my knowledge to the next generation of artists.

I am a Wildland Firefighter Type II (FFT2) and have been active in Disaster Response and Emergency Management for several years through AmeriCorps.  I have responded to the Good Friday Tornadoes in St Louis (22 April 2011), the Joplin Tornado (22 May 2011), Super Storm Sandy in Breezy Point, Far Rockaways, Brooklyn, and Statin Island (Oct 2012 – March 2013), the August 11-13 Floods in Detroit (2014) and numerous prescribed burns and wildfires.  These are passions that I have studied independently for some time now and have acquired a vast collection of resources, references, and certifications.

My dream job would (still) be traveling across Africa, living with missionaries for 2-3+ months at a time, telling their stories through images and writings.  So many times, all we know about missionaries are there name, how old they are, and their supporting church.  I want to be able to share their lives, who they truly are, where they come from, why and how they are serving God, and what they are doing with the opportunities that God has placed at their feet.

I’m still trying to figure outwhere God is leading me, but this is where He has brought me this far. I am confident that He will continue guiding my feet.

This is a little bit about me.  The rest is in the words that I write.

God Bless and PEACE

  1. Sean,

    I want to share a verse with you, Daniel 11:32. When we really know God and live in close relationship with Him, we will rise up with a new found faith, with fresh enthusiasm, touched by the hand of God to do great exploits of faith.

    Don’t wait to travel across Africa. God with the idea of relating what God is doing the world, how the Holy Spirit touches lives. Don’t just go to the missionaries but go and stay wherever He leads. God with an open heart and mind. Learn to live by faith. Go to encourage, to pray for others, and to share Christ’s love. Do not be timid, for out of your weakness you will rise up in faith. Keep a journal (both written and photo plus art) of what you see and experience.

    You will never have all the answers. This is to force you to trust and rely upon Him for your ever need.

    May God open your eyes and richly bless you.

    Ken & Maggie
