Hi all! Just wanted to let everyone know that recording went great and the album is almost done! I just submitted my CD design and the official tracklist today and soon we will be picking the cover photo and the title. I am so excited; it is hard to believe we have almost finished it! I will post another update here soon. Until then, have a great weekend!

In about three weeks we leave for Nashville to finish recording the new album and I am so excited. I love being in the studio and I am so excited to be able to realize the dream I have held on to for almost a lifetime. It's hard to believe sometimes that I have finally made it to this point, that I am finally fixing to walk into that studio and put the finishing touches on my album, on my dream. Thank you all for being so supportive over the years and for having me at your churches and events. You have been such a blessing and such a bright spot in my life and I am very appreciative of you. With that said, have a great week!

Christmas is almost here! This will be my second Christmas here and I am looking forward to it. I wrapped Jonathan's presents this morning and I stumbled up on a heart-shaped plate in the cabinet so I'm going to bake cookies on Christmas Eve. My hope is that all of you will have a wonderful and very merry Christmas and that even if you don't have family to spend it with, that God will give you something to hold on to that will make you smile and brighten your Christmas. With that said, I wish you and your family a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

It's a beautiful day, perfect for practicing! I even nailed all the high notes. :D I hope everyone has a great afternoon and I hope to see those of you in the Independence and Coldwater area of Mississippi at the Greenleaf UMC Fall festival. Come on out and join us! We're gonna have a great time with food, fellowship, games and a hay bail throwing competition which I wholeheartedly intend to participate in! We'd love to see and talk to you. The event starts at 5:00 p.m. and ends at 8.

The album is coming along so well; the more I work on it the more it comes together!

I'm having a blast working on the album. My voice is perfect and I nailed one of my harder songs right out of the gate tonight. Woohoo!

I'm struggling to rewrite one of the sections of my main novel. I have rewritten it several times over and now it seems, since I have reworked a few pieces of the plot, I am faced with rewriting part of it again. It was hard to write the first time and it is just as hard to edit now and I find that I am suffering from writer's block when it comes to the book again.
I don't mean to change the subject so quickly, but I wanted to take a minute to talk about our experience in Nashville cutting the first part of the new album. The studio was beautiful and when we walked in, it felt so homey and warm. The atmosphere was so peaceful and so worshipful. All the musicians were great to work with and it was amazing to watch them bring the music to life. And our producer and sound engineer were great too. This was my first time working with Dave Wilcox and I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and the team he put together to help us accomplish our dream and vision for the album.
