The distributor also posted … Continue reading I suppose this means I’m officially a “recording artist.”

Sometimes we forget. Sometimes we are obliviously self-involved. But not today. I posted this on facebook last night: … Continue reading speak life.

Saturday, May 31, 2014 2:39pm I must admit, I was secretly hoping my personal trainer would forget our appointment today, but now that it's over, I feel MUCH better having made it through.

lament.

Thinking about praise and worship music this morning. In my personal experience and observation, more people seek God when they are hurting than when they are happy. We should sing praise and we should sing worship, but we can't forget lament. It draws people to Christ. Lament is not depressing, it reminds us we are … Continue reading lament.
