This past fall I was privileged to spend the month of October on tour with my Pastor, Dr. Michael Easley. Dr. Easley is also formerly the president of Moody Bible Institute and is often asked to speak at various conferences and events. One of our tour stops was at the Billy Graham Training Center at the Cove in Asheville, NC where Dr. Easley spoke on "Living Faithfully In Trying Times." During one of his talks Dr. Easley offered this quote and I thought I'd pass it along. I hope you find it as renewing as I have.
"The reason we are led into trouble and out again is not merely that we may value happiness the more from having lost it once and found it again, but that we may know something which we could not know except by that teaching, that we may bear upon our nature some impress which could not have been stamped except on natures just so softened to receive it." ~Phillips Brooks, The Candle of the Lord, 1884
Hey Everyone. It's been a crazy busy fall but it's been really good to connect with so many of you on the road. I wanted to let you all know that I have just met with my producers and will hopefully have a new record ready for release by sometime in late February. I thought I'd give you a little appetizer with a live recording of the title track from the new record, "It's Love". This video was taken during Christian Athletic Camp in Michigan. I'd love to get your feedback. Enjoy!
I normally wouldn't pass this kind of link on for fear of looking like I'm boasting but I'm pretty excited to be mentioned in the same series as Dave Ramsey.
This month I get to speak as a guest lecturer and sing at two of the colleges I attended, Cedarville and Belmont. In God's humor I never graduated from either one, HA! Just wanted to share my joy, thanks for celebrating with me.
