Why do you care?

          Hello, my name is Trevor Bunker and I am twenty years old. I am a Full-time student, here in Louisville, Kentucky. Why do you care? Because I’m not your normal millennial and here is why.

   I was born in Northeast Ohio and moved to Louisville when I was young. Growing up my years were adventurous and imaginative. We played, neighborhood games, built forts, climbed trees, and using our imagination with bamboo, until my brother started to choose worldly things. My parents didn’t see eye to eye on things, so they got a divorce. Things started to erupt quickly, and this was all just the start of a huge mess, where I was stuck in the middle of it all. I had nothing left but to lean on God for help.

         Knowing that everything happens for a reason, my parents got divorced and immediately things got even worse. Every holiday was ruined, every birthday was uncomfortable, and relationships started to be thrown up in the air. My brother moved to Northeast Ohio to live with family. This impacted me because the divorce happened, my brother moved, so who was supposed to be the man of the house? Ended up being a fourteen-year-old who took this role. The role wasn’t chosen by me, this role chose me because I had to protect my mom.

       Again, why do you care? Because this adversity that seems so little has made me who I am today. Funny enough, this doesn’t even cover the majority of who I am. The hole inside my heart was stupid deep. Every step I took was miserable, disgusting, and a mistake until I gave my worries, my burdens, my heart, my LIFE to God, He took care of me. He showed me where to go, where to be, who to trust, but most importantly where to be comforted. I needed God to fight for me when I didn’t know what weapon to choose. I needed God to be my pillow when I didn’t know where to lay. I needed God to heal me from wounds that weren’t supposed to injure me. All I needed to do was open my hand, so He could yank me on the road where He called me to be.

         Why do you care? Because Mark 5:19 “No, go home to your family, and tell them everything the Lord has done for you and how merciful He has been.”

Welcome Family!

Let’s began this journey.

  1. Love you Trev. I had no idea. Proud of the man you are and continue to become. I am going to share your site with your cousins and maybe your words will help lead them through their difficult teen years.
