My name is Scott Means, founder of and principle contributor to The Journey to Surrender.

In case you care, here are few facts about me.
  • I was born in Nebraska.
  • I am 50+ years old.
  • I’ve been married for over 30 years to my lovely wife, Jenni.  More about her at this link
  • We met in sixth grade, were high school sweethearts and got married just out of college. Click for more of Our Story.
  • We have three wonderful, talented and beautiful daughters, ranging in age from 17-25.
  • I have a BSEE from Virginia Tech and an MSEE from Georgia Tech.
  • I spent 25 years in engineering and engineering management, but the past few years I’ve been a global product manager for an industrial machinery manufacturer.
  • I’ve been playing the guitar since middle school. Music has always been a very important part of my life.
  • I’ve been involved in worship leading since college, though more seriously and consistently in the past 15 years.
  • For the guitar aficionados among you, I play a Taylor 710CE acoustic and a Gibson Les Paul electric.
  • Although guitar is my main instrument, I also play bass and a little keyboard and dabble at a few others.  I have a long list of instruments I still want to learn how to play.
  • I enjoy songwriting, especially writing worship songs for my local church.
  • I have a small scale digital recording studio in my basement, which is badly neglected these days.
  • My other hobbies, which I also have little time for, include woodworking and photography.
  • My passion for marriages has grown in recent years out of my desire to understand my own role as a husband. If you want to learn more about the genesis of this blog, check out About The Journey to Surrender.

Since this is probably a lot more than anyone actually cares about, I’ll quit here.

Thanks for Sharing! Someday we need to talk about worship and leading it. I have just inherited that position at church and have a ton to learn.

Great story, Scott. Thanks for putting the effort in to create and maintain this site (and, of course, to maintain your marriage!). Good stuff.
