What's up?

My posts have been rare lately. Blogging will always take a BIG backseat to my family, my ministry, and my music and all 3 of those have been SMOKIN' BUSY lately! Here's a few things I want to share.

  • My acoustic skills have taken a HUGE upswing. It's been a year now that I have been leading worship with the acoustic and I am FINALLY not nervous about it.
  • I love my band...we are rocking it out at the Core Campus in Bluffton this weekend.  We are songwriting together now and I AM LOVING IT!
  • My 2 year-old son now sings "Sing Sing Sing" at the top of his lungs in the car.
  • My almost 5 year-old daughter now prays "A Big Girl Prayer" and thanks God for her toys all the way up to her mommy and daddy.
  • This is first March in 3 years I am not having to move!
  • We are working on our first Art show at our campus that will premier on Easter Weekend. I am submitting a few photographs of the Island.
  • I have been LOVING our 40 Days of Prayer journey that we have been doing via our campus blog. It has been a spiritual highlight for me during this Easter season.

Making the band

I have shared my learning-the-acoustic-guitar journey with you all since March and yesterday was a another milestone for me.  Up to this point, I have to honestly say if "I" showed up to audition for my band, "I" would not let "me" play (just let that sink in). But today, I officially made the band. To put it into perspective, my FOH guy Rich said "Hey, is that a different acoustic guitar?" He was being serious. I told him, no, just an acoustic player who practiced A LOT and isn't making as much of a mess! Now, I am no great, unbelievable, out-of-the-park player, but I have a FABULOUS guitar player, Andy, who does it all. So, all I have to do is just stay out of his way and play rhythm and all will be well with the world.  I'm sharing just a minute of audio from straight off the board from our service Sunday with you...these are clips of 2 amazing songs that we used during our A.K.A. God series"Your Name" by Paul Baloche and "Jesus Messiah" by Chris Tomlin. Our worship was so active...I love it when our people just forget we are up there and worship God.
