Ready, Set, Sail!

The taxi took a left hand turn and pulled up to the line of cars waiting to be waved on by security.  Our taxi driver, Christine, informed us to have our boarding pass and passports ready.  A swampy area with murky waters and tall grass surrounded the strip of land our taxi sat on.  Slowly…

CD Review: Your Walk Talks – Mark Trammell Quartet

  Over the years, Southern Gospel Music has come to associate the term excellence with the name Mark Trammell.  From his days with the legendary Cathedral Quartet to the founding of America’s favorite trio, Greater Vision, and then on to his days with Gold City, it is easy to say that quality has followed this…

900 Miles Later…

It felt odd wearing a summer dress in February, but as I walked into the West Jacksonville Baptist Church (WJBC) it felt more like summer.  Then again, we were in Florida…and it sure beat the winter temperatures we left at home!  It was the night before the cruise (Singing at Sea) and one of the…

February “Firsts”

  There is a distinct feeling you get when you do something for the first time.  Maybe your heart thumps a little quicker or your hands sweat.  It’s not that the thing is scary, it could actually be very exciting, but knowing that the task is at hand can be both exhilarating and something that…

GIVE-A-WAY: Elusive Hope

As you are reading this I’m sailing back to Florida on The Fascination, it’s the fifth day of the Singing at Sea cruise and tomorrow morning we disembark and fly home.  We have visited the Bahamas this week, mainly, the ports of Half Moon Cay, Nassau and Freeport.  It’s my first experience to be on…

From The Word – Revival

  This week I am floating somewhere in the Bahamas on the Gospel Cruise, Singing at Sea.  In addition to the great music we’ll hear while on the open sea, we’ll also hear some good preaching.  One of those preachers is Phil Hoskins.  I heard him for the very first time last summer in Gatlinburg…

CD Review: Love Loud – The Browns

When I first listened to the Brown’s Love Loud project I was impressed with the quality of music and lyrics.  After glancing at the insert and seeing that five of the songs were co-written by at least one member of the Browns…I was impressed again.   Their ability to pen this many songs that say something…

Your Walk Talks Blog Tour – stop #3

I can still remember the first time I sat in an auditorium and watched Mark Trammell sing.  It was back in the mid 2000’s before the “Mark Trammell Trio” morphed into the Mark Trammell Quartet.  As usual, it was pouring down rain outside.  (Somehow it always rains during this particular concert that’s an annual event…
