Hold Fast Iron

"As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." Proverbs 27:17

Hold Fast Iron is dedicated to sharpening the lives of others.  


Everyone has a past, a story, and a beginning.  This is the origin of Hold Fast Iron. 
Twenty years ago in P.E. class I was approached to join the Football team after school in the weight room.  Not having anything better to do, I decided to go.  And besides, I had some close friends on the football team.  The school’s weight room was small and tucked away in a corner of the basketball gym.  By small I mean, it was a converted storage closet.  I did not know it at the time, but this converted closet would become my sanctuary. 
Our workouts were simple, lift heavy weights.  Loud music and iron, I fell in love.  As the days turned into weeks, the regulars began to emerge and a camaraderie was formed.   Sharing in the bonds of suffering, we were experiencing successes and failures.  We were being forged by the iron.  We were challenging each other to be better.
I was molded by the weight room.
“Just as iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”  Proverbs 27:17.
