"And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."Colossians 3:17
afH is short for "All For Him" :: Him who? That would be my Heavenly Father and Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ! In 1999, I left Corporate America to become an IT consultant. "What should I call my business?", I thought to myself. Well it's all about me and what I can do, right? How about "Amaro Consulting"? So that's the name I operated under for 5 years.
What Happened? :: One day I woke up to realize that it's not about me and what I do on my own. God gave me the talents and passions that I have. God has blessed me so richly in my life. I want to glorify and honor Him and live my life giving thanks to Him in everything I do. Do I do that perfectly? No way!! I fall short in many areas of my life...thank God for His wonderful saving grace, mercy and forgiveness! But, just because I fall short, doesn't mean I can't purposefully set out to live for Him and let him transform me along the way.
What's the Capture+Design? :: In 2009, I transitioned away from the crazy IT world into my 1st passion - photography. I decided that the concept behind the business name still applied, so I continued on with one small addition: adding the "capture+design" tag. "Capture" represents what I do with the camera, "Design" represents what I do after the capture. I do graphic design (business cards, postcard/greeting cards, etc.) as well as use my pictures as a base for digital art (i.e. adding texture, distressing, grunge and colorizing techniques). Some may argue with me, but I consider myself an artist.
How do you make it "ALL" for Him? :: I want this business to be all for Him in many ways. First and foremost, I want to serve in love those people who have a need for my services. Secondly, I want to reflect the attitude and mind of Christ to a world that may not know Him. Thirdly, I want to offer the first fruits of my earnings to further the Kingdom of God.
So, do you know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? :: If you do, that's awesome! If you don't...do you want to know more about Him? There is a God-shaped hole that can only be filled by Him. Alot of us go through life trying to fill that hole with alot of different things. Ask Jesus into your life and watch Him transform your life. What have you got to lose? Just say this prayer:
"Father in Heaven, I know that I am a sinner and need forgiveness. I believe that Your Son Jesus died in my place, to pay the penalty for my sin, and rose again for my salvation. I want to turn from my sinful ways, so I now ask you, Lord Jesus, to come into my life as my Savior and my Lord. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and cleanse me from my sin. In Jesus name I pray, Amen. "
Please get in touch with me if you have any questions about my faith or want to know more about asking Jesus into your life. I would love to hear from you...!
In His Service,
