it's official!

i'll be leaving my job soon to go full-time with music - so excited! it's a huge step of faith but I know He is faithful and will not lead me astray - I finally came to the point where I understood that this is where is He is leading me, and if it's to do one show and impact one life or if it's for a run of 500 shows or more, I will go. :)
so since i'm stepping back into the world of full-time art i wanted to make a list of goals for myself - maybe ya'll can help hold me accountable. :)
