Hey friends, my name is Todd Clark.
I am an instigator of curious living and the creator and curator of this blog.

I’m a husband.
I met my wife, Rene, when we were in the 9th grade and only 15 years old. I was looking for two things in a girl in the big 80’s … feathered hair and braces, and Rene had them both! She had reached “babehood” way early, and we fell in love. We got married in 1990 and we will celebrate 29 years of marriage this August! (@ReneClark)

I’m a dad.
In 1998 we had Ruby. The first girl born in the Clark family since the mid 1800’s! Seriously, it has been all boys in the Clark clan until Ruby came along. She is an amazing girl with a heart for the world and a very active Twitter account! (@RubyLClark)

In 2000 Cole came along. We call him Coletrain. Cole is one of the most unique, creative, confident, sporty, artsy young men on the planet. I love watching him explore new things. We love to watch movies, play video games, strum the guitar and golf together. (@ColeLClark)

I’m a communicator.
I have been on the teaching team at Parkview Christian Church in Chicagoland for the past 3 1/2 years. And before joining the team at Parkview I was on the teaching team at Christ’s Church of the Valley in Phoenix, Arizona. Each weekend over 29,000 people gather across 9 campuses to hear the Bible explained in a way that is relevant & meaningful to our everyday lives. We currently live in Huntington Beach, CA. Some of my favorite messages are here, on the Speaking page.


I’m a coach. 
I am the Vice President of Senior Leadership and oversee the coaching and staffing efforts for Lead, Teaching and Executive Pastors at Slingshot Group.

I’m a photographer.
And the founder of Eat Art, an eclectic collection of artists who are committed to artfully ending hunger. In the last five years we have sent hope and over 350,000 meals to hungry kids! When I travel to places to speak and lead, I always have my iPhone and Nikon D3 with me. Images from my adventures can be seen in my portfolio.

I’m a writer.
Two books are currently under construction: SHOULD HAPPENS (that will release in the fall of 2019) and Second Hand Faith as well as a screen play called “My Favorite Year.”

I love being a beginner.

This blog is a collection of curious thoughts, tips and testimonies designed to inspire and lead you towards the adventuresome life you know you were meant to live.

I hope you enjoy it and Share & Send posts so we can feed hungry kids.

I invite you to live

    I believe your an amazing person Todd and love hearing your sermons every Saturday or whenever its your turn to speak at CCV; what an amazing church we have. My family is always there ready to listen and digest the word of God. You have blessed so many people and will continue to reach the highest points in life the way you’re going. Keep on inspiring and I’ll keep listening. My family and I have started our own group to spread the word of Jesus Christ and the Lord our God. I believe this is Gods calling and what better way to serve him than to reach out to others and share his amazing grace and love to the world.. God Bless!

    I am sure going to miss your preaching at CCV. I’ve told your before but the way you teach the Bible and the messages you give changed my life and I am forever grateful. I wish you all the best and every church you speak at is so fortunate to learn from you in my opinion. All the best Todd. You are and will be missed.

      Thanks so much Tim. It’s a strange season for sure as we step away from CCV. We are trusting God for what He has for us next.
