New Release – Rest (Matthew 11:28-30)

Finding yourself weak and weary? Disheartened, fearful, or forgotten? Condemned, falsely accused, or persecuted?

I recently attended the screening of The Insanity…

In marriage, many couples face an unintentional drift as they prepare for the Empty Nest. For many years the focus of the union has been…

I went to Cindy’s first Songwriting Intensive Retreat in 2012 and she also mentored me as a songwriter…

Where I Am Tour 2014 in Review – Part I

What makes a good tour? There is no way that I could re-cap every detail from the tour, but I thought I would at least share some thoughts and pictures from my time out there on the road. To say the least…it was WONDERFUL! And God led me every step of the way, keeping me safe. I drove my Toyota Prius, loaded down with all my gear, merchandise and necessities for 5 weeks, out of…
