“You get down the road doing the things God’s called you to do and at some point you have to stop and ask Am I still supposed to be doing this?”
“My heart began to outgrow the need to travel and perform and began to get bigger for what was happening under my own roof.”
“I realized, the greatest platform in my life is the one at home, at the kitchen sink, the one serving my family, not the stages I keep leaving my family to go get on. And I realized if I don’t slow down and take hold of it, I’m gonna miss it.”
“Seeing my husband put his words into action made me feel so supported and so believed in.”
“The music I was writing was all about my family, and I realized if it was taking me away from them, I was missing the point. The family was the dream for me.”
“Don’t trade what’s unique to you for something someone else can do.”
“Whatever is true and excellent and praise worthy, think on these things.” Phil. 4:8
“I would compare what we did to impact the world, and would think what I did was so materialistic, but he encourage me that I was impacting families by helping them create an atmosphere for the most important thing which is home and family.”
“We had an “aha” moment as a family. We just started dreaming together and putting all of our dreams and goals down on a sheet of paper and it turned into Truth&Co. So, I kept this piece of paper and look at it often to remind me, this is what we wrote down, work towards it.”
“Music sets the tone in the house. We have it cranked all the time.”
“Music that echoes in the hallways effects the heart.”
“Don’t wait for the perfect moment, learn to cherish the precious moments right in front of you above the storms.”
“Seek wisdom, pray about it, and the DO it.”
“You’re already taking tons of risks. Just take it one step further. God has your best in mind.”
“My wife didn’t jump into this marriage so that she could revolve around me like the moon, God joined our wills together.”
“Reach out to each other and share those hopes and dreams. Become each other’s biggest fans and begin to really champion those things in each other.”
“It’s not really a crazy risk if your heart’s in it and your passionate about it. The bigger risk is to waste your life doing something you don’t love doing.”
