Episode 8 – Advice for moving away from your hometown

When people ask us why we moved to Tennessee, I could share our story about visiting Nashville for the first time and telling Tyler, “I don’t know how, but we’re going to live here someday.” Or I could share that while we were traveling, it was one of our favorite states in the US. Both are true, but the real reason was that we felt God calling us to Middle Tennessee, so we took the leap of faith.
