One Message.

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

I have a talented family. I'm sure I've mentioned it here more than a few times. I'm proud of their gifts, but prouder that they use those gifts to bless the church and serve the Lord.

Shawn was recently asked to write a song for our church's upcoming missions festival, and this is the song he wrote. Shawn and my dad recorded the song in my parents' studio when we were in Nashville a couple weeks ago, so what you hear is all them. (Oh, and me... in the background singing.)

On Friday night, Shawn will share this song at our church - with our choir and orchestra! - with dozens of missionaries who have flown in to join us, or are joining us via Skype. It feels very full circle as Shawn is a missionary kid and is now encouraging other missionaries. We pray it touches many hearts, and I'm excited to share it with you, too.

For some reason, it's not playing in all browsers when you click the PLAY button. If you'll click on the song title, "One Message" it will take you to the SoundCloud website and you can hear it there.

  3. Beautiful! There is nothing like leading others in worship with your husband. It's been one of the most amazing experiences of my life and I love that you get to experience this as well.

  6. So beautiful! He is the Way, the Truth & the Life…reminded of this as I listened. Encouraged by this as I serve in Rwanda.

    Would it be possible to get the lyrics? I would love to share this with my teachers and it would help them so much if they could follow along with the words.
