A Couple Drops Of Rain and a Gospel Song

  Drops of rain chased me into the church doors of Fellowship Baptist Church of Cape Girardeau in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.  This was the last concert in our “May Madness SGM Mini Marathon”…one we weren’t really sure we’d make it out to.   A few days previous (at that time) the F5 tornado went through Moore,…

March Motion Pictures: Week 1 – I Want To Be That Man

Welcome to March Motion Pictures!  Over the course of the next four Tuesdays, we’ll be featuring a music video from one of Southern Gospel Music’s rising or nationally known artists.  Our first video is “I Want To Be That Man” from Brian Free and Assurance.  This song held the #1 position on the Singing News…

The Most Attended Festival – Southern Gospel Music

A cool breeze caressed my face as the tram shot forward and whirled around the curvy road to the “City” entrance. Squeaky brakes brought our ride to a stop and then we hopped off and walked through the gates. A smiling worker dressed in a long cotton dress and a bonnet scanned my season pass…

Keeping The Music Alive

Two years ago we attended the Master’s Voice Homecoming in Bristow, Oklahoma.  It was a powerful evening with the Hoppers, Talleys and of course, the host group, Masters Voice.  Though we didn’t make it out last year, this year was a must!  With Karen Peck & New River and Brian Free & Assurance being the…

GIVE-A-WAY: Nothing But Love

Brian Free and Assurance released a brand new project this July…

Video – BFA: I Want To Be That Man

Brian Free and Assurance singing their new single “I Want To Be That Man” from their brand new project Nothing But Love. Brian said that they just received their tracks a few days before they went out that weekend, so this was BFA’s very FIRST time singing it! Can’t tell, can ya’? They look like…

CD Review – Nothing But Love: Brian Free and Assurance

Lyrics with value.  Though every artist will tell you that they are hard to find, Brian Free and Assurance have sifted through sand and soil coming out with a sack full of gold…or, a jewel case full of heavenly treasure.  Brian Free says he searched through 1047 songs to find the ten for their new…

Southern Gospel and Super-Hero’s

  The fourth and final concert that we attended while on vacation is one that I look forward to every year – the Superman Festival.  For four days the city of Metropolis, Illinois is the hub of festivities.  Booths line each side of the street displaying all kind of goodies (including peanut butter funnel cakes!…very…

BFA Devotional – A New Thing

“Lord, won’t You do a new thing Use me like You never had before I’ve seen the tried and true thing It made me want to serve You even more I want to let my light shine, so everyone can see And be the kind of witness, that You would have me be Just like…

BFA Devotional – I Believe

A shepherd boy killing a giant with a sling shot on the first try… A man thrown into a lion’s den, yet, alive three days later… Three men cast into a furnace but not consumed by the flames… A city collapses by the sound of a trumpet blast… About a million people walking through a…
