One of my favorite jobs was writing for the Beautiful Life series at All Souls Church in Knoxville, TN. I wrote this with the pastor at All Souls, Doug Banister. We both interviewed the finance director and city leader Bruce Charles. Bruce's main passion is working with inner-city kids to get them jobs and off the street, protecting them from violence and life in a gang. Bruce is unflinchingly honest and real, and lives out his faith working with kids that many others don't even see. This story represeted a series of conversations with the two of us and with the pastor.
We are really excited about the new website we completed for Hisway Painting that represented an upgrade in marketing presence for this local high-end residential painter that has served the Nashville area for almost 30 years. We wrote all new content for many of the pages, did photography for staff and of many of the homes and designed and developed website.
Hisway Painting has been in business for almost 30 years, transforming homes in the greater Nashville area with a fresh coat of paint. But that is only a part of their story. Bud and Eileen Zegel have a passion for working with the nations, are able to serve their all Hispanic work force who come from multiple countries in central and south America.
The Zegels use their faith to be Godly examples and provide encouragement and support for their employee's dreams, helping them get settled in the local community, providing English tutoring, teaching them to read, helping them get homes, etc.

These little girls live in my neighborhood and bring so much joy. I met them one day when I was getting out of my car and the littlest one, Ava, simply ran over, arms spread wide, wanting to be held, and ever since then, they have become my favorite part of living in this little neighborhood.
Zoe is 4, and has more personality and spunk and courage, and will chase the little chocolate lab puppy around three different front yards while Baylee, the little dog pretends to be terrified until Zoe stops or runs out of breath. Then she comes up and nips at her until she starts to chase her again.
