Well friends, it’s time for something new.  With the launch of our new website, we’ll be moving our blogging over to a blog that is integrated into the website itself.  You can still subscribe to the new blog, but if you’re already subscribed to this one it will soon go dark.  Of course, given the frequency of our blogging, that may not feel much different than normal.  So we invite you to check out the new blog and new website.  We’ll be in touch soon!

Thank You, CCM!

Isn’t it fun when people say nice things about you?

As a musician it’s particularly encouraging, especially when you take what’s in your heart, put it in a song, and then tentatively stretch it out for everyone to hear and have an opinion about.

I’ve had bad reviews – and good as well – with previous musical projects, and those are always particularly difficult to take.  Personally, I think it’s God reminding you that He wants you to be humble more than He wants you to be critically acclaimed.  But good reviews always make your soul fly a bit higher, and in another way they can be a kind of affirmation that you’re on the right track.

Enter CCM magazine.

They didn’t say much – obviously they had to reserve space for people much more important than us – but they said it nicely.  Take a look for yourself.  You can find our review on page 36 as well as a “Story Behind the Song” segment on page 52.  You can also view the “Story Behind the Song” segment here.

Now I’ve always been taught that when someone says something nice about you, you should say, “Thank you.”  And so we say, “Thank you, CCM!”
