Music to Our Ears

Posted by on Jan 22, 2014

Since our CD has been released, it has been an on-going blessing. We have always heard musicians talk about how amazing it is when a listener tells them specific ways that the their music has impacted the listener. It’s one of those experiences that we never realized the feelings and the magnitude at which an artists feels those feelings as a result of a listener sharing. After our CD was released back in November, we have received a steady flow of encouragement concerning how the Lord is using our music. We have gotten multiple videos of children belting out the song “I Remember.” It blesses us so very much to see these kiddos! Not because they are singing “our” song, but because they are singing Psalm 103! Lord, may these kids never forget who You are and what You’ve done for them! May they proclaim this same truth as they grow older! Shortly after Thanksgiving a woman sought us out to tell us how God used our music for her. It was the hustle and bustle of Thanksgiving — complete with the interesting interactions with extended family. Some sort of conflict came up and this lady felt like she was going to explode. Instead of exploding, she decided to grab her running gear and go for a run. She stuck in her earbuds and pulled up our album  on her iTunes. She said as she was running, the Lord spoke to her heart. At one point, she began singing out loud as she ran; her singing then became yelling and proclaiming who God is. She said she probably looked like a crazy lady. She affirmed that God had called us to make the CD because of the way the Lord used the songs to speak to her. She ended by saying, “Kerry, when I returned home after my run, I was a different person than when I left.” Oh God, will You continue to use these songs to speak to your people? Recently, Kert was approached by a married couple. The wife had lost her mom the night before. She spoke unbelievable words about how the Lord had comforted her the night her mom passed away. She said she was having a hard time recalling specific pieces of Scripture to comfort her, so she turned on our music and listened to it “on repeat” over and over. She spoke...

It’s a New Year

Posted by on Jan 9, 2014

Wow, it’s January 9, 2014. Where has the time gone? Did we forget we have a website or a CD? Nope. We’ve just been soaking up some quality family time lately. We are much better at keeping you posted on Facebook and Instagram. Feel free to check there if you’ve missed us! The picture to the left pretty much describes what we’ve been doing — snuggling with our kids and probably watching The Sound of Music. They can’t get enough of that movie! We have also gotten some projects done in our home — like building Kerry a bookshelf (no more stacks of books everywhere!), painting the rest of a wall that’s been sitting half-painted for faaaaar too long, replacing some broken light switches and other home repairs. You get the idea. It has been much-needed rest and recovery around our casa! During our time off, we have had plenty of time to reflect on the past year. WHAT … A …YEAR! We decided that 2013 will be one of those years that we will look back on and potentially say, “How did we do all that?” 2013 in quick review (all by God’s grace!): The Lord opened up doors to record Creating a website, Facebook page, videos, and Instagram Fundraising Recording when Kerry was eight months pregnant Our oldest child starting kindergarten Kerry having our son and all of us adjusting to being a household of six “Releasing” our CD and all that goes along with that 🙂 It’s been a miraculous whirlwind of a year! The Lord has poured out so much grace on our family through it all. We stand at the beginning of this new year and say, “Thank you, Lord, for directing our steps last year. Let’s keep rollin’.” We are curious to see what 2014 holds. We are curious to see what unique experiences the Lord brings about next. We’ve had several people ask us “What’s next?” with our music. Other than leading worship at a retreat in February and a conference in June, we are along for the ride once again. We do know that we desire to continue the daily reading of God’s Word. We know that we want to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We are asking the Lord to provide songs for us to use to proclaim His truth. We are also praying that our music would lead...
