Good news for all. “Rock-N-Happy Heart” CD and the newest companion “Rock-N-Happy Heart: The Devotional” are both available in stores. Go to your local Christian bookstore and head back to the kids section to find these two new products. Spread the word to your church, friends and family about this rocking music for preteens and elementary kids. The devotional is a 12 week daily devotional and we are convinced your student will grow in their faith and learn a daily devotion time because of it.

The Feeling of Ah….

March 22nd, 2010

Wow, the past couple months have been busy. This past weekend I completed the spring leg of the SuperStart tour, and was leading worship. It was a blast being on the tour for the third year. The Lads were out with us too. If you haven’t heard of The Lads check them out at www.theladsband.com In addition to Super Start I’ve been in a host of churches doing special Sunday morning experiences or family concerts. It’s always a joy to be invited to churches and share my music. Last week I was in San Diego at the Children’s Pastors Conference. A Pastor walked up and handed me a card from the kids at his church thanking me for the song “Shout!”. So humbling to get to do what I do and be a small part of the listener’s experience and journey to Christ. I am very, very blessed.

It’s now officially spring and- wow. Everything from 60 degree weather to snow storms this past weekend here across the US. I’m excited to be heading back out west to Sunny southern California this week for a little R&R. I’m so excited to have some down time in one of my favorite places. I’ll be at South Hills Church in Corona this Sunday too so if you’re in the area. Come out…I’ll be leading worship for the main service. When I return home I’m going to be hitting the ground hard writing and planning my next record. I plan to be back in the studio during the month of May. I can’t wait to record some new songs and get back out there on the road to share the music!

Back to the topic of spring. A friend of mine was doing some cleaning and restructuring a few weeks back and posted a twitter message that said “Amazing liberation comes from throwing away junk you’ve been keeping. True spiritually too.” That really stuck out at me. It’s easy for us to see that our closet can’t possibly hold anything else or see a mess that we know needs cleaning. Every day we’re home we see the reality of the situation. Often times it’s a lot less likely that we notice the same thing happening in our spirits. It might be the hardening of our heart. It could be some hurts that we’re holding onto repeatedly scratching the scab off the wound instead of letting the hurt be healed the One who wants to heal us. There could be some bad habits that you need to overcome. Guess what, we can have a spiritual spring cleaning. Start by examining your heart, life and actions. If you need to grab a pen and paper and make a list. Just like cleaning the garage or a closet. Make a “keep pile” and a “trash pile”. Look at what you need to let go of. Pray and ask God for His help to get rid of the dirt in your spirit. Ask Him to help you each day to choose right things and overcome evil with good.

Until next time….keep on dreaming big dreams. Our God is big and has a plan for you!

New PRESCHOOL Music

March 6th, 2010

This past month I entered the studio to record a few new preschool songs….well, five new preschool songs to be exact. They will eventually release on the next installment of “Little Praise Party” in 2011….but since I’ve been getting so many requests from fans of LPP for new music I thought I’d go ahead and release these 5 songs but only for a limited time. A few of the songs have an Easter and/or spring theme so the 5 songs are available exclusively at Kidzmatter.com for download for only $5…but hurry….After Easter these songs will return to the vault until the complete album is ready to release.

Thanks for supporting the music. Your support is what enables new music to be created and future projects to come down the pipeline. The stories of how the “Little Praise Party” series has impacted kids, families and churches are too numerous to count. I’m humbled at how God has entrusted me with the opportunity to create music for these precious young children so they can learn about God’s love but also express their love back to God.

Thanks again for checking out the new music. I’ll be entering the studio again in May and can’t wait to record more. Please keep me in your prayers as I write and make plans for the next project.

“Little Praise Party Springtime EP” is available now but only for a limited time. This five song ep for preschoolers features a few songs that have an Easter and/or spring theme so hurry….After Easter these songs will return to the vault until the complete album is ready to release in 2011.

The 5 song ep is available exclusively at Kidzmatter.com for download for only $5 HERE

The perfect addition for preschoolers at home or church as we all kiss winter goodbye and say hello to green grass, flowers blooming, easter egg hunts and a celebration of Jesus’ resurrection!
