For the few of you who actually come here I'm falling behind! I must confess that my life is so busy and it's just getting harder to keep up with this blog. I'm feeling guilty! I'm putting so much pressure on myself and I have no idea why! I find it funny that I do that to myself. I've had a couple of projects I needed to get done which you'll hear about at a later date. I'm hoping I get familiar with my blog again and visit those who come here. From now to May I have several concerts on the books so...I'll be lap topping it on weekends. Blessings to you all!

Does it have to be this obvious?

Performance at EVELYN BAY

Last night was kind of history! It was so much fun! Heather,Ryan,Brooke joined me at "Evelyn Bay's" coffeehouse. I was so excited for them as kids who are learning their craft and mastering it. I have known all of them since birth and there is joy in watching them learn the arts and applying their gifts. Heather played keys and a percussion drum while Ryan played guitar and violin. Then there's Brooke who just turned 9. She's a showboat! She sang and danced throughout the night. My hubby Jan even joined them on guitar which was also his very first performance! He started taking guitar lessons I believe about a year ago. God must have been proud of all of them! Oh..yes I did perform too...but I gave most of the night to my great friends. The coffeehouse was packed out and it was just a nice setting and night. Check out the pictures of the place.

2 Corinthians 9:7

Today at church it was like God planted me there! I almost wanted to look around and see if anyone else was looking at me because God was clearing speaking to me, Leah. I need to take moments like these any stop and remember that God does speak to me, you, us. We just need to listen.

I have been struggling with what I do. How do I balance what I do outside of the church with what I do in my own church? Actually...my only struggle with it is... people just don't get I'm trying to do what I can but I can't do it all. I feel like people are trying to punish me for what God called me to do leaving me feel like a failure as I try to balance it to the best of my ability. Which in turn comes to the point of "I'm serving man and not God!"

This scripture today is one I have read all my life. It's always there ever year almost at the same time to get people to give their tithes. But today...I saw something different. This scripture is not about money, it's about our lives in Christ! Giving isn't about the dollar but about everything we have. Giving is about everything we are as "Christ Followers." No where does it really say giving of money. It could be money but it's also our time, our services, our talents, etc.

God loves a cheerful giver but...here is the thing. I get to make up my own mind as to how much I give! I've never read that before! I shouldn't give reluctantly or in response to pressure! REALLY? Has that been missing all these years? Misinterpreted over the years or just not important enough for me to want to understand it? I don't no but..in my quest to balance I have been asking God to hit me over the head and tell me how I live with my decision to follow him and the recourse I get because of it. Today it came! I simply can't be a cheerful giver in area's I wasn't called to be a giver to! I know my calling and my heart's direction! God and I worked that out a long time ago. Some things I just can't do because I can't fit them in. I hate that but that doesn't mean I'm not giving to my "Giving capacity". It just means I can't do what others think I should be doing. I love serving and I'm a cheerful servant most of the time. But there is a season and a cycle to everything. I have to let stuff go and let God take care of the outcome of what others think I should be doing. Putting the head and the heart together is hard but it doesn't get any cheerier putting God first, understanding his calling and following it.

Boy! I'm glad I have that off my chest! :)

Hey everyone! I'm excited to let you know that I have just been picked up by "Heartfelt Song Music Group". DeAnne Arnold is now going to be my offical booking agent. Some of you might know her name because DeAnne used to be the Vice-President and Radio Producer for KC Christian Music. She has a lot of experience as an artist and a producer and I'm so excited to be working with her. She has a great heart and understanding for the Christian artist and the ministry that God called them to. It doesn't hurt either that...hmmm well...I consider her my friend!

Rory Noland wrote "The Heart of an Artist" a few years back. That book found it's way into the church. It's a great book for Worship leaders and Worship teams. It help's keep "It's All About Me" at a distance. Rory has another book out and I think it's a must have for all Christian Artists serving in or out of the church. You can find it over at www.heartoftheartist.com or your local Christian bookstore.

This is perfect!

I loved this little ditty. I just think sometimes as Christian we tend to be like this. I have the Joy of Jesus but right now I have the blues. Joy and the blues just can't go together. It's like water and vinegar! Either you have Joy in your life or you don't! Have you ever noticed that so Christian's have never really had Joy in their lifes? I have friends that you almost have to laugh..."What would their lifes be like if they didn't have Christ?" They have so much conflicting stuff in their lifes and why? Why have all that baggage? Why not work towards having joy? Having Christ in our lives is not just about getting through the gate when we die! Our life should reflect our beliefs. If we can't show the world that God has changed our lifes...the world won't want to change! So...my challenge for today is...Show the Joy of Jesus! Put on a happy Face! Look like you do have true joy! People are watching!


In a month we'll be in our new building! I can't wait! Right now it takes between 25 to 30 minutes to get to church from where we live. Our new building is less than 8 minutes away from us. That's so cool! Lots of stuff that needs to be done. Jan, my man has worked hard on tech stuff for the new building and we're eager to try out all the new equipment. So...here's a couple of pictures I was able to grab from our new church blog.
