Tell us more about you and your blog?
I’m from a very small rural town in Kentucky and managed to get out and work my way around the world – twice. While this was all wonderful and exciting, my family was experiencing multiple tragedies. I wanted to be sure my community and “followers” knew that I was experiencing real life and real hardships while also having the time of my life. The goal was to be sure to remind people that confidence and humility, tragedy and blessings, can happen and exist simultaneously. It is now my goal to help my community reflect on what makes them a “badass” and what serves as humility in their life.

What’s been your favorite post you’ve worked on?
It Isn’t God I’ve Been Angry With, It’s The Church – This was my most heartfelt and honest post. Being raised in the Bible Belt was interesting, and while it fills some with life, it crushes others. This was an honest post about where I was at in regards to church at a rough time in life. I mentioned things that others wouldn’t publicly. This post was controversial but it hit home for many and made others feel they had a safe space, or at the very least someone that could relate to their own experience.
