Freedom Soundtrack

Rescue Tour 2017

Over the past few years I've had the privilege of sharing my story and music at a few homeless shelters and rescue missions. Every time I get that opportunity, I'm blown away. There is something in all of us that opens up when we find ourselves in desperate circumstances. All the sudden we become more aware of our need for God and additional help. This is true everywhere. When we start feeling the squeeze, the stress, or the trial, our eyes begin to lift as if to say, "Where does my help come from? I sure need some."   //   Next month I head out on my birthday for a Rescue Tour. It's not as fancy as it sounds. I've been making calls over the last few months, and I have about 10 dates booked at various rescue missions in Tennessee, Arkansas, Texas, and Oklahoma for the month of June. I'll be sharing...

Twelve is here! Available now.

Hello friend! The CD's have finally arrived. For now, they are only available in a physical format. (They aren't up on iTunes yet.) If you would like to hear some of the songs, head over to to listen. You can order your albums there or on my website. Either way, Jill & I will split the proceeds and use it towards ministry and furthering the good news.   //   Sorry to keep this so brief, but I am heading off to another ladies retreat in a few minutes. I pray your week is going well and that God continues to refresh you as you spend time with Him. On a quick aside, I think Jesus loves spiritual hunger. I think He shows up to those with expectant, wide-open hearts. If you want more of God, just tell Him. Ask Him. Show your hunger by creating space and quiet in your schedule to listen and tune in. Special things happen when we do this.   //   

2 Chron. 16:9 says,

"For the eyes of the LORD move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His." (NASB)

Step 5: Be My Life Changer

Exuse me while I vent for just a moment. Part of the reason we have so much dead religion in America is because Jesus is not our Life-Changer, but our Life-Saver. We don't want transformation. We just want candy; sugar-coated, high-fructose religion. The problem is, Jesus loves us too much to leave us unchanged. He knows our potential. He knows what we'd look like without all the hurts, habits, and ugly hangups. He's not about to let us settle for a syrupy substitute. He wants us whole, changed, and healed inside and out. This is why He came to redeem us on the cross. This is why He chose a path of pain, beating, mockery, and ultimately death. Not just to save our lives, but to give us life. A new life. A changed life...

Twelve: New Album Cover Reveal!

First of all, thank you so much friends for your prayers and patience! After my previous newsletter explaining about a health setback, and needing to hold off on the blogs for a while, many of you sent emails telling me you were praying.


I can tell you that almost immediately things began to shift and change in my body. I literally felt it within days of your prayers. Thank you.    //   I sometimes wish we could see what's going on in the spirit realm…the spiritual battle our prayers do. But other times I'm thankful I have no idea, because it would probably make me pee my pants...

Step 4: Cleansing Waters

Are you hiding? Do you ever feel like you need a complete rinse in the river of God? When I was a kid I used to play Hide And Seek. It was fun. But on occasion, I would hide so well, no one could find me. They'd give up and move onto a new game, and I'd still be in hiding. Guess what? It wasn't fun anymore. Hiding for the sake of hiding isn't fun. It's uncomfortable, and you're sitting there all alone in the dark. It's the same way in our real lives. Hiding feels safe at first. But in the end, it leaves us isolated, unknown, forgotten about, cramped, and living in darkness. Maybe today, God is calling you out of hiding in to healing...

Step 3: Turn It Over

Ever had a crash and burn kinda day? By 10am today I found myself needing to repent of my mouth and bad attitude…for the third time.    //   All I can say is, sometimes we just need more God and less us in the mix. I can't live without Jesus. He puts the sane in my sanity.   //   As I explore Step 3 for the recovery process, don't miss this post...because there's a SAMPLE from the Freedom Soundtrack's NEW SONG,  "TURN IT OVER" Check it out!   //   See ya over on the blog...

Step 2: Choose To Believe

Ever feel like the Queen or King of "not quite enough?" I do. It's like I try my darndest…only to not make the cut. Or I simply have nagging thoughts adding the word "enough" to the end of everything I do. For instance:

  • You prayed…but you didn't pray enough.
  • You studied your Bible…but you didn't study enough.
  • You worked out…but you didn't work out enough.
  • You taught clearly…but not clearly enough.

Today, I walk through Step 2 of the Freedom Soundtrack. If you find it hard to call yourself beloved...this is for you!
