I’m excited that you stopped by! My name is Brandon Gilliland. I am a passionate follower of Jesus, electric guitar enthusiast, golfer, and a student pursuing medical school to become a physician. I am currently a neuroscience student at Florida Atlantic University’s Honors College.
Along with being a student, I also work as a neuroscience intern at The Scripps Research Institute in South Florida. My work consists of performing surgical exposure to the brain of living flies (Drosophila melanogaster) in order to image the brain with a confocal microscope during olfactory classical conditioning. I work on recording changes in calcium in specific sets of neurons while elevating cAMP with drugs.
I write on Christian leadership, worship, and life topics. My whole purpose of writing on this website is to amplify God’s kingdom and to help others find the real purpose for living.

The Meaning of “Amplifying God’s Kingdom!”
My mission statement is at the top of my blog: “Amplifying God’s Kingdom!”. I came up with this mission statement/tagline because I felt that it perfectly suited the purpose in life: to tell others about Jesus and His love. When that happens, God’s kingdom is amplified!
I chose the word “amplify” because it not only represents the instrument needed to produce a sound, but it is also what happens when we show God’s love to this lost world. We all have a purpose for living, and it is important to find how God wants to use you to make His name known to others.
Let’s amplify God’s kingdom together!
