About Us

BrianFirst and foremost, welcome to GraceOverwhelms.me. This is a website that I have created as a mini-ministry to reach out to people who have experienced the grace of God first hand. This website was built for both new believers and those who have been at it for a long time. We’re here to help in your growth, provide you with support and education to help you in your path of sanctification.

Hello, my name is Brian Freytag, and I’m a Christian. I have a beautiful wife, Melissa, and we live in a quiet neighborhood in the suburbs of Detroit. This website is a little pet project of mine. I’m a software engineer by trade, but first and foremost, I love to study theology. For the better part of a year, I’ve been studying under Dr. R.C. Sproul and his Ligonier ministries. If you are aware of Dr. Sproul, then you can guess my theological leanings. I subscribe to Reformed theology. I’m a Calvinist, and as such, much and most of the writing on this website will have these thoughts in the background even if I don’t specifically mention it. If you disagree with the Calvinist views, then chances are you will disagree with much that is on this website.

If you are unaware of what Reformed theology and Calvinism teaches, you can check out this amazing resource from Ligonier Ministries: What is Reformed Theology. This will help you get rid of a lot of the misconceptions that are out there about Reformed theology and the Calvinist teaching that informs it.
