On the road… 

There’s just something about being on the road that makes me smile.  It was that way when I was on a childhood vacation, and it still is.  Today we are back on the road to do our Christmas concert series, and guess what? I’m smiling. Our last “pre-pandemic” Christmas held 17 events.  Last year was just 7 (for which we are still VERY grateful).  This year holds 9.  At least we’re going the right direction.

I’m not smiling because everything is great, its actually been a really crazy Thanksgiving week…

How Could I Ask For More? 

I’ve been asked several times today how yesterday’s presentation of the first MATTHEW VIRGEL SCHOLARSHIP went. I’ve been thinking all day on exactly what to say, and I find myself tonight with a dozen thoughts, yet few coherent sentences. So let’s try this one a bit differently. How about some random thoughts and you can reach your own conclusion? Here we go…

Extremely warm welcome Very professional, organized, competent and accommodating staff A room full of respectful students and

THE FIRST MATTHEW VIRGIL SCHOLARSHIP PRESENTATION! 

I’ve been taking about a “pretty big development” for KNIGHTSONG Ministries in my blog, posts and in our appearances.  It’s finally time to go public, at least the first part. We are absolutely thrilled to announce the presentation of the very first MATTHEW VIRGIL SCHOLARSHIP!  Thanks to a generous supporter, we have partnered with Jacksonville College (Matt’s alma mater) right here in East Texas.

On Wednesday morning of this week (October 27, 2021) I have the privilege to tell Matt’s story in a…

You Should Have Heard Them Laugh… 

A cheerful heart is good medicine.  Now I didn’t make that one up, someone far wiser than me, or any of us for that matter, said that a long time ago.  I think he was on to something.  As I look back over my life at the truly difficult days of the Journey, I can remember hours, weeks and even months when it seemed there was no laughter in my world.  I have described grief to others as feeling like “someone turned off all the music”.  Funny how even right now I remember how quiet it was… so very quiet.

THE BLOG I THOUGHT I MIGHT NEVER WRITE… 

Well here it is…  the blog I thought I might never write.  And to be quite honest, I still don’t know what the second step is for KSM, but I know the next one…finally!  For those of you who have followed this ministry over the past years, you know that this is the way it has always been; a journey of faith, revealed one step at a time.  And truly I believe this is what makes the life of faith so challenging, so exciting, so rewarding… and so much fun!   And please help me share this message by link, by…

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…

I DON’T KNOW!!! 

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 

WHO WOULD HAVE EVER BELIEVED IT?
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…
