Tribute Quartet in Willow Springs, Missouri

Last week, I had the opportunity to see Tribute Quartet at the First General Baptist Church in Willow Springs, Missouri on Friday night.  I don’t know about you, but a Gospel concert is always a good way to start a weekend, and luckily, I didn’t have to go far to find one. The evening kicked…

Mark Trammell Quartet in Hazelwood, MO

Last Saturday, I was grateful for a sunny drive on my way to a concert in the St. Louis area.  A few trees were even turning yellow and red along the highway; so peaceful compared to our last concert in St. Louis. (During the summer, we went to a concert and all ended up hiding…

NQC 2018 | Tuesday

From the first time I saw his name appear on the NQC schedule, I couldn’t wait until the Tuesday morning Chapel Service.  So, when my alarm went off that morning, I didn’t hesitate to get up, enjoy a cup of tea on the cabin’s back porch and get ready for the day. A few hours…

The McKameys Announce Retirement in 2019

The McKameys have always been one of my favorite groups.  Their heart and genuine care for the music and people they sing to can be seen in every concert. Though I always hoped I wouldn’t see the day they would leave the road, I’m glad that they are following the Lord’s leading in their lives…

Andrew Johnson Historic Site – Greeneville, TN

Tucked away in the rolling hills of Eastern Tennessee is a timeless piece of American history.  And when I say tucked away, I mean, tucked away! The two lane leading into Greeneville, Tennessee curved around beautiful countryside fields before it led me into the small town that was home to our 17th President, Andrew Johnson….

The Liberty Bride – Mary Lu Tyndall

There are two time periods I can’t get enough of when it comes to Mary Lu Tyndall’s novels – her pirates and her romances set during the War of 1812. Luckily for me, the sixth title in the “Daughters Of The Mayflower” Series, “The Liberty Bride,” was set in those turbulent times between America and…

Shelter of the Most High – Connilyn Cossette

“We are surrounded by killers! Surrounded!” …So said Sofea to her cousin, after discovering what a city of refuge was in the land of Israel.  Imagine escaping a near death experience, only to find out that your rescuer and the home they’ve opened to you is a refuge for people who’ve taken the life of…

Michal – Jill Eileen Smith

Ever read a Bible story and go, “Oh, that person!  Why are they acting like that?” For years, that’s been my opinion of David’s wife, Michal.  We only get a short glimpse of her in Scripture, but it isn’t a favorable impression…at least not to me.  But opinions can change, and that’s happened when I…
