Everyone loves ice cream!


Rhythm City Church , founded in September 2013 meets at 3rd & Lindsley every Sunday at 11am. We are a small community right now, but we are growing. I never knew what went into a Sunday morning volunteering, but I do now! There are so many things to do before the service actually starts. Over the past year and a half volunteers have worked tirelessly on Sunday mornings, arriving early to set up the tables, set up the stage & sound equipment, make the coffee, put up signage, and a million other things. Not only that, there are community groups that gather throughout the city each week at different  houses to party, pray and serve their communities.

Helping grow and serve a new church, otherwise known as a ‘church plant’ is rewarding and tough. Rhythm City’s mission is to connect the disconnected, and the vision is to become a rippling movement of communities where everyday people follow Jesus, together. This is a hard mission, especially because many people have become disenfranchised over the thought of religion and organized religion due to something that happened in their past or the thought of Christian hypocrites and judgement that they believe they will receive (and unfortunately sometimes do receive) when they walk into a church. Rhythm City is a place to meet people right where they are at, and love them. No judgements, no pressure, just grace. For we are all the same, in need of grace.


Thank you to all the volunteers who make Rhythm City continue to move and grow and change lives every day!

Have a great week, everyone!!

Quest Fit Brentwood

So, I LOVE sites like Groupon, StyleBluePrint, Living Social and others. Why? Because I get to try many different health and fitness facilities at a fraction of the price. Quest Fit in Brentwood, TN was one of these. I had no real expectations, except for the fact that one of the yoga instructors who is awesome, and kicks my butt every time, Angie Kirk. So, after seeing she was one of the instructors, I knew I was in for some real training – and I was right.

Though I never got a class with Angie, I did do Quest 60 classes and they were hard core. These classes are always different, but definitely some of the hardest workouts I have ever done. These classes are full body, using body weight, kettlebells, plyometrics, HIIT and more. Quest Fit’s tagline is great: “It’s not about being better than someone else, it’s about being better than you were.” It’s easy to be next to someone in any fitness class watching them do more reps with heavier weight, or run right past you and feel less than. . . but with this group of people, it’s fun, lighthearted and definitely a team effort.

The facility is large, clean and new. The bathroom / showers are spacious and clean – very nice and comfortable with towels, shampoo, soap and hairdryers provided.

I would recommend this to anyone looking for a new type of fitness in an encouraging group environment. It is on the pricey side around $179/mo for unlimited classes per month, the cost is less if you choose a per class / specific class option, but nothing less than $100/mo.
