I feel exhausted…

I’m tired this morning. This week I’ve had the privilege of leading worship for a revival at a church in Poplar Bluff.  I love leading worship, and music has always been one of my creative outlets. Initially when I was asked to participate in the revival I was all in , and excited.  The closer … Continue reading

Wednesday is for … worship …

… Not that we only worship on Wednesday, it should be our lifestyle, BUT today I’m specifically thinking about worship music.  For about 7 1/2 years I was blessed to travel with some pretty incredible people as part of a ministry called “No Longer Quiet”.  We traveled and led worship at various events, camps and … Continue reading

I love the college calendar!…

So, a lot (not all, but a lot) of my work schedule is dependent upon the collegiate calendar … like when students are gone on breaks, it means some of my regular responsibilities don’t happen … For example, this week we get Thanksgiving break starting tomorrow.  So, this week I’m able to go home and … Continue reading

EPIC “weekend” in Lee’s Summit…

Well, I was scheduled to lead worship at a youth retreat weekend in Lee’s Summit this weekend with my friends from No Longer Quiet, however they decided they needed to cancel based upon the forecast of 6-12 inches of snow that was supposed to fall today.  SO, instead of a whole weekend, we just had … Continue reading


I’ve been listening to a lot of hymns lately. As a worship leader, I’m always keeping an ear out for good, worshipful music/lyrics.  Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge fan of a lot of the current worship songs, but they seldom match the eloquence of the hymns from my childhood and beyond. I … Continue reading
