About Me

Hi, I am Joel Kingsley, and am the Founder and Developer at GirdThySword, Inc. GirdThySword is a brand with a mission to encourage and inspire people to memorize the Word of God, the Bible. Right now the brand has an app for free on the Google Play Store. Check it out by clicking here.

I started coding when I was 15 in my first Computer Science class in Grade 11. At that moment I knew that computers had something to do with my life’s purpose. I am 22 right now, currently working as a Full Stack developer in a premium service based company where I use technologies such as Ionic, Angular, Node.js, GraphQL, and Spring Boot on a daily basis.

Running is a reminder to me. A reminder that I have to keep pushing even if there is every reason for me to stop. Even if people around think that I’m crazy to run at this time of the night, or my legs tell me that I should probably go home and take a nap in the couch, I gotta make it to the finish line cause I know that I have to finish what I start. I’ve been running for more than a year now. Have run six 10K runs officially and more than 500Kms in total.

As a Christian, I believe that all you have to do is believe in the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ to go to heaven. Not believe and go to church, not believe and read the Bible, or not believe and be baptized. Just believe in what Jesus has already done on the cross to be saved. And once you’re saved, you’re always saved. You cannot lose your salvation.

Over here I write blog posts on programming, running and way of life.
