Various Things!

Like the title says, here are some various things.

First, I meant to do this like 3-4 months ago, and I didn't, but it's not too late. My good pal Todd Wright is a fantastic songwriter. He consistently writes worship music that is singable, powerful, and has meaning. If you know anything about the "business" of worship music, you know that there's lots of fluff and "rock star" going on. That ain't Todd. He's the deal. If you don't have his All the Freed record from a few years back (which I had the honor of producing), go get it. It is, song for song, one of the top 5 worship CD's I own. No kidding.

But that's not what I want to tell you about. Go get this. It's a tune that Todd wrote a few months ago called "Maker of My Days." For some reason that completely escapes me, he decided to record it at some other studio instead of mine. In spite of that epic fail, the track turned out great. It's really a very, very good song and a great production. And hey, it's only 99 cents. I don't tell you folks to go out buy very many things (usually I tell you to buy things exclusively from me, because I am completely unfettered in my desire to pay my bills), but I feel confident about encouraging you to spend your money on this.

Second, if you haven't ever heard of these people, go read about them now. Moreover, get on their mailing list and let their powerful stories of real, on-the-edge ministry move you.

And even moreover to that first moreover (the public schools didn't teach me how to use multiple "moreovers"), find a way to support what they do. Here's just one example of the amazing stuff God is doing thru Brett and Emily.

And finally, in the least important news of the day, I really am going to do a Christmas CD. I've already scheduled the studio time. To promote the record, I'll be doing some Christmas-ish concerts in November and December. Mainly house stuff, but some bigger shows as well. If you're interested in hosting something, contact me directly at

That's all for today.

I have to tell you that I bought my grandchildren your "Juice Box" cd for Christmas. When I heard it I wasn't sure what they would think of it.(It is a little different;-)... They are 4.5 and 3 and 22 months. They LOVE it! They ask for it All the time and just this week I was in my daughters vehicle and her 22 mo old daughter, Zoe, yelled up from the 3rd row, "mommy, juice box, juice box!" I thought you'd like to know.

BTW we"grownup" love your music, keep up the GREAT writing!
