Favorite quotes-

1. Mother Teresa said “If you want to change the world, go home and love your family.” I think that’s where you look and go that’s my legacy.

2. I feel like Church of the Small Things was my journey of God bringing me back around to know you are exactly where you are, doing exactly what I want you to do and if I’m calling you to something bigger you’re gonna know that, but for today I want you to do what’s right in front of you.

3. Its trusting that none of us have a small life because God is using every bit of it. That’s why He put us here and that’s why He put us where we are.


Bonus: After the interview join me as I answer questions about life, faith, and business.

In this episode, I answer these questions-

1. What is your go to coping mechanism when you feel overwhelmed? (44:21)

2.  Do your non-Christian family members question what you are doing with your life and how do you answer? (48:22)
