There is something about fall that feels like a new beginning, that makes us come alive a little more. One of the incredible things about what I do is being able to go on location.

We live in this culture of “get it done” and “do it fast.” We hustle and run through our days while our to-do lists outstretch our minutes and our days become like flurries. Have you felt it? Do you know it? Do you know the pressure to be all things to all people? And have you felt the fast-paced busyness of life get heavy on your soul?
