You Asked, I Answered

The past few  several months, I’ve been asked a ton of questions about various (and sometimes super random) areas of my life.  At times I’m great at responding…other times I fall short.

Life Happens

Have you ever had so much to say that you don’t know where to start?  That’s how I feel. I haven’t been on Balanced Chaos in months.  This was intentional. Sometimes you have to take a break from something if you feel God is pulling you in another direction.  Can I get an Amen? 😉 […]

Faith. Courage. Change.

One of my good friends from Nashville, Brandi Thornhill, always gives me the best advice. We could talk for days, with every conversation leaving me with a sore jaw from laughing so hard.
