Hello world!

My name is Phillip.  I am a bivocational pastor and I am 47 years old.  I have been married happily for 26 years, have two children and one grandaughter.  Right now this site is under construction!  Just like me!  My hope is that this blog will chronicle my successful recovery from back surgery and share some helpful hints along the way.  More posts to follow!  May God bless you!

Don’t forget as you undertake you journey, God has your back!

About pastorpstephens

I have been blessed to have served as a pastor, a chaplain and to have been involved in other ministries throughout the years. My wife Marta and I have been blessed with a wonderful family that includes our daughter, her husband and their two daughters and our son and his wife and their son. Each of them are very special to us so please keep them all in your prayers. One truth that I always try to share with people I meet is that anything God asks you to do, He will help you to do. God has your back.

    I am 25 and currently debating a posterior lumber fusion. I have just had my third opinion, all from spine specialists.. all saying the same thing. I am very nervous about what to do and what is the right thing to do.

    • I understand your nervousness. Surgery is a big decision and should be made prayerfully. You should also consider the support and help you will have in the early days & weeks of recovery. My family has been awesome! My experience has also been very good. My doctor was very confident and told me that I was going to look back and wish I had done it years earlier. And I think he is right. I went to the mall for an hour and a half this weekend with my family and my back did not bother me one bit! Surgery is a personal decision, but I can say that after 11 weeks it has definitely been the right decision for me. May God bless you.
