New Cd Arrival/Drawing

Now that our new cd is finally here, we are giving you a peek into the studio where we recorded "In God We Still Trust" in October.   First of all, meet Mr. Tom Ware, who has blessed us so much with his incredible technical skills and his amazing patience.   We are so grateful to have this talented producer help us with our project.

There were many hours of waiting while others were laying down the tracks or doing vocals.  Our little ones spent that time listening to books, playing games, & watching videos.

Elizabeth learned a few more lessons in patience while redoing vocals.
Although I can't tell you why Hudson has his hands in the air, I do know that he was very weary of singing "When I Am Afraid".  :)
And to celebrate our new cd we are going to do a drawing.  To enter you only need to......................comment!  We want to hear from all of our family, friends, fans, foes, etc. etc.  :)  This is your chance to let us know that you visit our blog now and then.  (My niece said this will bring out all of the lurkers!)  To add interest, tell us what state you are from.  (And we are hoping to hear from all  50 states!!)  We will put all of your names in a drawing which will be held on February 1.  The winner will be announced in a post by February 8 so be sure to check back.  
Although our new cd isn't on our webpage yet, you can still order by sending using the order form on our webpage.  Just be sure to let us know that you want the new cd.

Back on the Road

After some frantic last minute packing, farm chores, & a sewing project we headed for our 5 1/2 week winter tour 6 days ago.  We spent the first 3 days in central KS  sharing in 2 churches.  It was encouraging to see so many people hungry to hear the Word of God.

We also enjoyed some rich fellowship with the Beckman family. An energetic 80 year old woman had the 7 Beckmans and all 12 of us plus her daughter over to her house for a breakfast of Swedish pancakes , sausage, bacon, and fruit.  In case you don't know, Swedish pancakes are like crepes, a very thin delicious pancake.

Thank-you Beckmans, for your gracious hospitality.  The physical exercise, the great food, the music, & the hours of talking were so refreshing!


Our next destinations were in OK where we met a sweet family who make their living raising parakeets.  We never gave any thought to where those little birds in the pet store came from but now we know that there are barns filled with 1,575 pairs of birds which lay eggs that hatch into baby birds which are then shipped to pet store wholesalers.  It is always fun to find these field trips on the road!

Please pray with us that God will continue to prepare hearts to receive His message.  We are excited to be a part of the We Care Prison Crusade, which starts on Sunday.  To see our schedule go to our webpage.
