The Big Day!

  • The New House

can’t believe it!! I’m typing this blog post out in our new home. It’s so surreal. I feel like we were just driving around neighborhoods and dreaming of what it would be like to BUILD a house!! I never thought that this would be something that we would do and so this opportunity really took us by surprise. While we didn’t dream about BUILDING, we did dream about what we wanted to be able to accomplish with our home one day. We wanted our home to be used and when God blessed us with the cute little house on Cutler Ridge 2.5 years ago, we used it WELL. There were so many high schoolers and guests coming in and out of that house that we had to replace the carpet!

  • Meet Alia

know those families that are just jam packed with talent? Well, the Prasad family is one of those families. I remember when we first started coming to Gayton (Our church) and I couldn’t believe how much Kristin (Alia’s mom) was in charge of! Kristin is on full time staff at GBC and she keeps that place rolling! Not only was I impressed with Kristin, her children are quite impressive as well. Alia is incredible on the violin!! Despite her busy school schedule and soccer schedule, she makes time to play at church constantly! And not only is she musically talented, she’s brilliant!! Alia has a scholarship to Vanderbilt

  • Coaching

a saying that Michael and I learned back in leadership training in high school that states that the only things that will set us apart from other people as the years go on are 1. The places you go 2. The people you meet and 2. The books you’ve read. As at 15 year old, this didn’t make much sense but as I have grown up, it is beginning to make more sense. Not only does my business take me different places, it’s allowing AMAZING people to come into my life. My clients, my coaching gals, my mentors in the industry… the list goes on and on…. and I’m grateful. I’m so thankful for these people who believe in not only MY business but who believe in their businesses as well.
