DVD Review: Live in Louisville – The Mark Trammell Quartet

It was close to ten after seven in the evening on September 11, 2012 when the announcer at the National Quartet Convention introduced the next group to main stage, “Ladies and gentlemen…the Mark Trammell Quartet!”  So it began, the live taping of what now is MTQ’s current DVD, Live in Louisville, displaying eight of the…

Grow! Part 1

As Tuesday comes to a close, I hope you’ll take the time to watch this video and be inspired by a simple message about “nails.”  Yep, those little metal things folks build stuff with!  Funny thing is, as you view this sermon, you’ll learn that humans are more like nails than you think!  LOL  Kent…

May – Make a Difference!

The theme for May can be wrapped up in one word – grow! We all know the saying, “April showers bring May flowers.” Well, rain (water source) helps flowers to grow, and life can sure pour down some thundershowers on our lives. Maybe its doing so now in yours, so why don’t we use that…

GIVE-A-WAY: A Ball Full of Treasures

It’s May already, can you believe it?  Though time sure has passed quickly here in Missouri, what I find hard to believe is that three hours from my home, snow was falling on the ground!  In May!  In fact, Greater Vision drove through some of it last night! Forgive me for starting off on a…

Snapshots #3 – Lake of the Ozarks Gospel Sing

The clock struck six.  Emerging from backstage, I was happy to see a small group huddling over the Singing News table that I had been manning during the week.  It was the last night of the Great Lake of the Ozarks Gospel Sing and closing the weekend were the Lesters and The Mark Trammell Quartet! …

Battle Songs – Week 4

For our final week, I wanted to do something really fun…with a little comedy, ya’ know?  No matter who you go see in concert in the Southern Gospel realm, you’re bound to laugh.  If you don’t, well, there’s something wrong with you!  LOL  Following that trend, I wanted to take this last poll and do…

Snapshots #2 – Lake of the Ozarks

Turning right at the yellow banner that read, “Gospel Sing Parking,” we found a place for our car and walked down the sidewalk to the Main Street Music Theater. It was Friday night, the Booth Brothers were scheduled to sing and from what I heard, the venue was sold out! (That proved to be true!)…

Battle Songs – Week 3

Well, time has slipped away from me this week!  On Tuesday I found myself in the car driving back from Singing in the Sun (Myrtle Beach, South Carolina) and didn’t get a chance to stop and up-load this post – I apologize for being late!  Anyway, our selection for this week will be a hymn…

Snapshot #1 – Lake of the Ozarks Sing

It isn’t every day you get to ride atop a bluff and look off into a calm lake dotted with docks, boats and condos as you drive to a Gospel Sing.   April 4th was one of those days.  The sun wasn’t yet set, though the light of day was beginning to fade as we made…
