I’m the founder of PositiveBlogging.net. I’m a published author (Redeem the Story, Jan. 2020). I started the Positive Blogging publication here on Medium.

Hi! I’m Aaron Hall. Welcome to my About Me story!

First, I’m a Christian who blogs. I started a blog called Positive Blogging, which is about writing, blogging, and life. I’ve been writing since I was twelve, but it wasn’t until recently that I decided to force myself to become more consistent with my writing. That was a major factor in why I rebranded my blog and am trying to be more consistent writing here on Medium.

So far, it’s been a lot of fun!

I’m also an author. My most recent book, Redeem the Story: A Call to Let…


Blogging matters because it’s an opportunity for you to express yourself

You should consider starting a blog. Why?

Simple…

Blogging matters.

Writing matters.

Do you want to know something? Blogging is writing. And has proven to be very therapeutic. It has for me, at least. It’s a way that I can say what I want, how I want when I want. I can express my thoughts, concerns, and rant if I wanted to. There’s freedom in blogging compared to writing a book for a publisher. Blogging means you are both the writer and the editor. And that can be a very good thing, in my opinion.

Blogging is more than just…

What you do with failure matters

I tried Medium several years ago and then again last year.

And failed at it both times.

But I have come to the conclusion that I needed to give it another try despite past failures on the platform. And what I mean by failure is twofold: 1) Failure to be consistent and 2)Failure to use the platform to its full potential.

I hope to do better now.

I hope to try more without giving up so easily as I have every time before.

Can you relate?

Have you tried Medium before and failed too?

I’m assuming if you’re still reading…


I’ll say it again and as many times as needed: God loves diversity

Our country is in trouble if things don’t begin to change. As a pastor I believe Christians need to be more vocal about injustice than anyone else. God’s people must be the voice for change. Silence is warranted sometimes and other times it speaks louder than we might realize. No more silence. Our culture is on a path of great pain. Some thoughts:

Why should Christians be more vocal about injustice than anyone else? The Church should be the place the world looks to for wisdom, to…


What inspired me to write it

I remember it like it was yesterday.

My wife and I were in the kitchen standing next to the counter. The kitchen, for us, is the place where many of our deepest, personal, and life-changing conversations tend to happen. And it’s usually with a cup of coffee in hand.

On this particular day, we were talking about some of the things we were seeing in the youth group where I serve as the youth pastor. We were talking about how some of the students were coming forward to get saved weekly and the need for salvation, but not weekly.

After…


The best is yet to come.

Class of 2020,

We are proud of you!

I know the last few months have been anything but “ fun.” I know many of you probably feel robbed, because COVID-19 stole from you some of the best weeks of your high school years.

I get it, but I’m not saying I can completely relate. As I’m not a high school senior anymore. None of us have had to navigate through a pandemic. But I do want you to know the frustration and anger you feel, we all get it. Our lives have been forever…


The other day at church I had the opportunity to preach on why we should be investing in the Word of God. You can watch that message here. As I prepared this message this thought crossed my mind: How many parents talk about the bible in front of their kids but are rarely seen reading it in front of them? In light of that, I want to give you three reasons why your kids should see you reading your bible.

1 — It shows them the importance of investing in the Word

Our kids tend to imitate what we deem as important. Skip church regularly? Your kids might grow up with the…
