Friends and family, many of you know that Jeff (and now our whole family) have been dealing with Lyme Disease and co-infections including Babesia. We started a Go Fund Me Campaign as our savings are nearly gone and we hope this will help us cover our out of pocket medical costs. We are hoping to meet our first goal in the next 10 days to cover urgent dental care currently exasperating Jeff's infections in his brain. We have JUST completed our oral surgeries on Monday and are recovering. The toxins and infection were much worse than they thought and we feel confident that God brought us to the right place at the right time. Praise God that 68% of what we need has come in! Click on the link below to donate, read our updates and pray. We just posted Update 7. Thank you for your help!
The last 4 months have been a whirlwind of events from outreaches in prison and shelters, to private weddings and corporate events to leading worship at home (at Crossroads) to tours on the road with concerts outdoors and in churches...We are so grateful for your prayers and support at our events both locally and on the road!
9/15-25 Jeff and I will be traveling to a biological dentist to do several oral
surgies in order to move forward in our healing of Lyme. Please
pray and read up on the details HERE

How God's Word has Influenced my Life and Ministry
Our stories mean more than most people realize...and because our ministry revolves around it, I have learned how important it is to be "prepared in and out of season". This summer I had the honor of doing a podcast where I was asked to share my story from the perspective of how God's Word has shaped my life's calling and direction. Listening back, I knew I wanted to share this with you as well. I hope it reminds you of how God is at work in your story!
THE ART OF HELPING SMALL CHURCHES
I have been leading worship at Gracepoint Fellowship for probably 5 years now or more. Gracepoint, like many small churches, cannot afford to pay for a full-time worship leader, yet their hearts to worship the Living King beat with passion and longing and commitment like any other church. Perhaps even more, because they know what it means to go without...Gracepoint represents the majority of churches across the globe. Small, intimate, struggling to make ends meet with pastors who work part to full-time jobs "on the side" so that their churches can make it. Would you pray for Gracepoint? And for the worship leaders who come every month from their home churches to help Gracepoint lift their voices to the King? Many wish they were used more at their church. Maybe there's a church out there who could use you once a month? May we all be willing to go out and serve "beyond our borders".
