God spoke Nashville into my heart in October of 2007. I moved there, alone with no friends or family, in August of 2008.
And it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
But Nashville saved me.
Often people say, “Why do you think God moved you to Nashville?” and I still am not sure of the fullness of that purpose. I mean, I don’t have a list that is complete. I wasn’t unhappy in my hometown; in fact, it’s great. My parents are awesome. My best friends are awesome. My job, my house, my church, all of it- totally worth sticking around for.
I think God offered me a new city because I was a wimp and because I had forgotten my first love. It was the only way God could save me from myself.
