O Power of Christ—Song 6/40

I’m so thankful I didn’t write this song all by myself. 🙂
I didn't write this one, but I love it, so I'm sharing it in my 40 videos by 40 years collection. This is just a video of our rehearsal, but I hope you'll go listen to the original song by Reach Records on their new Christmas album featuring Crystal Nicole. It's...
I asked my kids a few years ago if they could recite some Bible verses. They could only get through a little bit of John 3:16, and I felt like a failure as a parent. The truth is, I’ve helped them memorize verses for Sunday school before, but they haven’t...
Dying to Go Home—Song 4/40 For Kevin. He’s not dying anymore. He’s in paradise with his Lord and Savior. I’ll miss seeing him at church. I’ll miss his infectious joy. We wrote this song for him. Dying To Go Home Marcy Each & Allie Lapointe Bridge taken...
