2016 - What a Year!

It's been a great year!  A ministry, a daughter-in-law, a new "job", song writing, worship leading, traveling, and's been a sold out to Jesus year and I can't wait to see how He is going to use me in 2017.  Life, of course, is not without its ups and mom has been in and out of the hospital (she's doing pretty good right now), my grandpa was just released from the hospital (seems to be better), I lost miserably in fantasy football...last place, was bad (there's always next season), sorry, that was rather tacky...but I really do love football.  I haven't blogged since September, shame on me, but rest assured, I'm ok and sort of have good reasons excuses.  Lots of ministry happening here and there and prisons, North Carolina, Arkansas, it's really been amazing.  I've read lots of books (ok...a couple), I finished another course in my goal to obtain a Certificate in Worship Ministry through Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary...almost done :)  I should wrap it up this Spring, lots of hospital runs and appointments with my mama, the discovery of Gilmore Girls on netflix...the list goes on and on.  But those are the highlights.  Let's back up...

The wedding....July 30, 2016, my son, Christian and his bride, Sydney tied the knot.  It was a lovely wedding officiated by my father-in-law and Christian's grandpa, Lester.  Sydney is a precious young lady and we are proud to have her in our family.

I quit my job in July, so I could do more ministry work, write more songs, etc....and boy, did that explode!  I wrote four songs from August to October, traveled to Arkansas to lead worship for a ladies retreat, traveled to North Carolina to participate with a TV ministry - I led worship there as well, it's been pretty our Sing for the King Ministries 2016 Year in Review.

Our ministry has seen countless lives changed by the Gospel in and out of prison, I have been so blessed to be a part of it all.  My marriage, faith, and love for people is stronger than it ever has been and the Glory belongs to the Lord.  Thank You, Jesus, for these life-changing moments of 2016, I won't forget them.

Almost forgot to do our Christmas Card though, that would've been tragic, ha.  I threw this together and mailed it on December 22nd...what a loser ;)

And hey, read these books...
