I, Debra Gordon, am a Jersey Girl gone Delawarian with a collegiate stay in central PA now loving the hills of middle Tennessee and the big small town feel of Franklin.
My most recent move to Franklin, TN has awakened my desire to “show up” everyday. That hasn’t always been the case even though I have the inner desire to feel, live, experience, do, etc. I was in DE living a pretty normal life – family, house, friends, church, job… but I didn’t feel like I was plugging in to the vision God had for my life. Having all of that seemed like an early death sentence for me (sorry to be so morbid). The monotony of it all felt quite like entrapment. A friend pushed me out of the box of my life there and told me to move to TN and pursue my dreams. I believe it was President Andrew Jackson that said, “I was born for the storm, the calm never suited me.” I don’t wish a storm on myself, but the calm doesn’t quite cut it for me either.
