Land of the Lakes and Sun

Have you ever noticed how photos portray writers?  Nine chances out of ten the photo had him (or her!) seated on a nice cushy chair, pen in hand, expensive looking leather bound notebook sitting on their lap with a gaze directed out a window lost in thought.  Oh, and don’t forget a coffee mug on…

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…

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…

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…

August News

Ouch!  It’s the 13th already!  As you can most likely gather, I’ve been a bit behind on posting the last couple of weeks.  But I hope it’s not too late to write the August newsletter!  You may have noticed that I missed July’s, but honestly, July was different this year.  For the first time, I…

June – The Busy Bugs!

We are all familiar with those nasty little critters called “June Bugs,” well, with all of the traveling we have been and are going to do, I feel like one of those little guys…crawling all over the place!  LOL  On June 1st I found myself in Springfield, TN with the Mark Trammell Quartet.  (BTW, 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…
