2016 is HERE!
Happy New Year! I cant believe we are already in 2016. What an epic year 2015 turned out to be. So many goals accomplished and so many new friends made. Firstly I want to thank all of you for your continued love and support. Alexa and I could not be happier with everything we have achieved this year and it could not have been possible without each and every one of you.
WOW! Its been a long time since I have posted a blog. A little over 5 months to be exact. Sorry! I am going to try and take time out of each week this year to write on here! I thought a perfect way to start would be telling you about some of my highlights from 2015!
A highlight for me this year was competing on Dancing with the Stars. To be completely honest I never thought I would ever do something like that. Especially after James (from BTR) did it. Lex and I were both approached at the same time to join the show. My immediate reaction was “NOWAY JOSE”! We prayed on it and realized that God was giving us this opportunity not for Lex and I but for all of you. “What an incredible platform to share our testimony with millions” we thought. We said “Yes”! Signed contracts and the journey began 6 weeks later. With no Idea what to expect we met our partners on August 22nd. Mark and Witney were incredible right off the bat! We had 3 weeks of pre competition rehearsals and then we were LIVE! The show was one of the hardest things I have ever been a part of. It was challenging but even MORE fulfilling. Sharing my love for God with the world every Monday night was the icing on the cake. The amount of comments I read each week from people telling me how my love for Jesus “changed their views”, “moved them” and “affected their families” just fueled me everyday in rehearsals. I may not have won Dancing with the Stars. But I know I won in Gods eyes and THATS all that matters to me.
I truly believe we each have a purpose on this earth. We are all here to effect people in different ways with our different gifts. If were not doing that then whats the point of living? I strive to change lives. Weather its through my music, blog posts, Instagram pictures, tweets, youtube videos or even just in conversation at the super market, I want to be a prime example of how Jesus was. No one is perfect. Trust me.. I'm FAR from it…I believe God made each and everyone one of us to be unique. I embrace my “weirdness”!
2016 is here. Its crazy how you get this sense of starting new on January 1st of every year. It really only is another day.. BUT we get this feeling thats its a “FRESH START” and I love every bit of it. I feel ready! I want to make this the most interesting year yet. I don't want to live with one once of fear this year. Faith is powerful! Boldness is imperative! I know we all have things that we want in life that may seem “impossible”… Well this year that word is not going to be part of my vocabulary! I want all of us to challenge ourselves to live in complete faith and boldly confess everything we desire. I declare that this year, 2016, will be everyones break out year!
"I boldly confess that this year (2016) I will"

We tend to keep these things to ourselves and just “HOPE” they happen. I want to be transparent with you all. I think that is how we should all be. Lets be accountable for one another. Help each other complete these goals. We are all in this together! I want to get better atcommunicating with all of you!
I feel so blessed to have a Job going into 2016. GreaseLIVE is going to be so much fun! We have already had one month of rehearsals and we have more more left before were live on January 31st. Who is ready for this? What FOX is doing will blow your mind. There are so many talented people working on this and I cant wait to be able to share all the surprises we have in store for you! I will be keeping you guys posted as rehearsals continue so stay tuned for updates on my blog and though my social media accounts.
