I’m so excited to tell you about my new t-shirt. It’s more than a t-shirt. It serves a bigger mission. Through this shirt together we will make a difference because All proceeds of this shirt are helping to fund the next “Little Praise Party” album (Stay tuned for more on that.) You get to be a part of the new music and videos with your support of this shirt.
Everywhere I go people love the song “Super Wonderful”.
A number of years ago I started something on a whim and it has become one of my favorite things of the year. July 16th is my birthday so I offer my biggest discount of the year to YOU. It’s a great time for you to stock up on music for your HOME, worship resources for your CHURCH, my shirts, devotionals and so much more. Even my curriculum HEARTBEAT will be included in this sale!
I wanted to share these two podcasts with you as I feel they captured my heart in such a strong way. The host, Carl Barnhill, has created some of our lyric videos and countdowns plus the video transitions in our Heartbeat curriculum.
A couple years ago after taking my own son to a Paw Patrol Live event here in Nashville, I realized that parents want to create memories with their children. They will spend money, time, energy and even endure the inconvenience of parking and travel to go to an event where they can create a fun time spent with their child.
Realizing this as a parent made me even more grateful as a minister for the opportunities I’ve been given to partner with churches.
Time has gotten away from me this year in making a supplemental VBS song list but here it is. This list of songs includes ten different VBS curriculums out there. Thanks for considering these suggested songs based on content and themes. I love being your partner in ministry! I am so grateful to all of you that sing my songs and use my videos in your Kidmin.
At some point the past year I came across a song called “Monuments”. It’s lyrics blew me away and stopped me in my tracks from the very first listen.
“One look at what You’ve done
Is A glimpse of what’s to come
Every miracle, Every step of faith
Every victory, rises up to say
We are the monuments
Of Your Faithfulness”
See for awhile I’ve felt like I was at an in-between space.
I decided to try something new. This something new is because time is ticking away, literally! Meet my new COUNTDOWNS:
Super Wonderful Countdown (extra perfect for your next superhero themed event or series)
Strength & Shield Countdown (high energy, colorful, and perfect for your next worship service, VBS/camp or special event.)
Your download includes two audio versions: Full mix with the vocals singing (A great way to connect to worship songs you currently use or plan to introduce) and a complete instrumental track.
A little back story for this post…last May I was attending a conference and one of the Pastors at the church walked up and gave me a word about me flowing in the gift of prophetic. I’ll be honest at first I didn’t really understand what that meant or looked like for me. Not imagining me walking up to people prophesying, etc. But in the weeks that followed I received a couple other confirmations from people that had no idea of this previous word.
It was a joy to speak and share with leaders at INCM’s Children’s Pastor’s Conference in Orlando. Here are the notes from my sessions.
