So I married this “preppy” girl… 

Now Shaunda is not “preppy” in the 90’s kind of way (you may remember turned up collars and spiked hair).  No, she’s “preppy” in an “almost a survivalist” kind of way.  And she’ll tell you that she has taken more than a little bit of teasing from the rest of us over the years.

Y2K was an exceptionally “preppy” time for Shaunda.  That’s when I first remember scanning for “best by” dates at the warehouse store, but it certainly wasn’t the last.  Several cases of bottled water and several dozen cans of…

KSM – October 2020 

Well….  what a strange year this has been for all of us!  As I’m sure you noticed, it’s been quite a while since I shared anything about KSM, and there’s a couple reasons for that.  First, it seems like everyone is having a rough go of it in one way or another, and second… well, there hasn’t been all that much to talk about.  I told Matt’s story on March 15 of this year… and we all remember that date, don’t we?  That was the last time I shared his story until October 4.  

You may (or may not) recall…

Absolutely free! Well, almost… 

Ever feel like you just need a quiet place to get away from it all?  Wow, who has not said that over these past few crazy months of 2020?  I have such a place.  It is the in the corner of the studios of KNIGHTsong Ministries (otherwise known as my in-laws spare bedroom) where I am seated at the piano.  It has been at the piano that I have found my “quiet place” throughout my entire life.

And now, I want to share it with all of you absolutely free!   Well, almost…

I have just finished the second…

Be honest now… How many times have you said that in the last few weeks?  If you’re like me, it’s likely in the hundreds, and growing.  What really is Corona?  Is it primarily a sickness or a beverage? What is really going on?  What do “they” know that “they” are not telling us?  Who’s actually in charge?  Is this a bioweapon; a terrorist attack?  Is martial law right around the corner?  Has the whole country gone crazy?  All I can answer, over and over, is “I don’t know”.  And oh yeah, the “biggie”…. Does…

WINTER 2020 

As you may (or may not) have noticed, Shaunda and I have been off the grid for the last few weeks. Since leaving Family Fellowship in March of 2016, we have traveled nearly year round for four years covering more 100,000 miles (not counting flights), released 3 books (and a second edition of the first one) along with 3 recording projects all while telling Matt’s story nearly 200 times. Add to that the Christmas concerts and a couple new Live Worship Events and well, it has…

FRIDAY NUMBER 4 November 22

So next Friday is “Black Friday”…  and while you’re in the Christmas shopping mood, can I make a not so subtle suggestion?  

Need a reminder of what the holidays are all about? Imagine Christmas Eve, preparations complete.  Lights from the tree merge with the flicker of glowing candles. Or perhaps you just slipped into a quiet church where the bustle of the season takes a mandatory backseat to the reason for the season. With snow gently falling outside…

FRIDAY NUMBER 2… November 15
KSM begins scheduling 2020, and on into the future

In an earlier post I mentioned that KSM was approaching some sort of paradigm shift. I also told you that I really didn’t; know exactly what that meant. Well, I’m still not certain, but now I have a little better idea.

Shaunda and I stayed gone for the better part of the initial two years. That’s the way we had it planned, and exactly what we wanted. The second two years found us out on the road nearly as much. Well here I sit…

On the plane headed for the East Coast where we will minister to 85 moms…all who have lost children.  

I’ll be sharing Matt’s story, we’ll be doing a breakout, and I get to close the conference on Sunday morning by sharing the hope we have through Christ. 

I’ll take all the prayers you’re got!
