We are so glad to announce that THE TIME IS HERE for our new recording!!!
For months we have been in the beginning stages - finishing new songs, making demos and working on arrangements.
Everything is going great and on schedule! The arrangements are finalized, and as you read this, we are in Nashville with our producer and some amazing musicians, beginning the actual process of recording, and already it's sounding fantastic!
Needless to say, we can hardly wait for you to hear it!!
Interestingly as we were praying and deciding on songs for this new CD, we were continually led to songs of intimate worship and felt the Lord was simply saying, Come and Worship.
We call this "vertical worship" - every song sung directly to our Amazing Father who loves us so much. We labored over each lyric to express our hearts of adoration and gratitude to Him, interlacing God's beautiful promises throughout.
We believe these songs will bring you into the very presence of our Father, and help you articulate your own heart of love and worship to Him. That's our desire - to HELP YOU CONNECT WITH GOD, the Source of all help, peace and comfort!
How Sweet the Sound...
By God's Amazing Grace, we are SOOO blessed that the recording budget is completely covered! What a relief, knowing we don't have to divide our energies between focusing on recording and raising the necessary funds! An amazing couple heard about this new CD, and God placed in their hearts to generously finance the entire project. Praise the Lord!!
However others have also recently given us additional donations wanting to be involved. So if this is also on your heart, here's how you can help:
Throughout this last year we pulled away for some "song writing retreats," working on the songs for this new CD, but in doing so incurred some financial debt.
We know this is temporary and are trusting the Lord to eliminate all of it, as well as our ministry to step into a more solid financial place. In fact it was prophesied to us more than once that this year would be a year of great abundance. This resonated in our hearts and confirmed the scripture we had been receiving from the Lord:
If you would like to be involved in helping us finish this CD with all of our ministry debts eliminated, AND a surplus to continue helping others, we would greatly appreciate it!!
We are so excited to release this new CD with all new worship songs, thanking God for His faithfulness and love in our lives for over 40 years! He has surely put a New Song in our hearts!
The release is planned for mid May just before we leave to lead worship in England, the Netherlands and Germany. You will receive an official notice when it's available!
We are excited and hope you are too!
Please pray for us during the next few weeks as we work hard to get everything ready for manufacturing. We are expecting a tremendous anointing on this CD, and we know your prayers will help us!
