about

It was a hot summer, June of 1996. I had been leading worship at camps for the last 4 summers, since 1992. I had 2 cds that I would sell at those camps, but they were not the songs that I was leading at those camps. Naturally people began asking me for the songs that I was leading and why didn't I have those songs on a cd.

And so, my friend Jim Bryson (a sound engineer and pianist) and I began to develop a plan which involved taking over his mom and dad's house. They were the most amazing parents in the world. They let us use their bedroom as a studio with the soundboard right beside their bed. The vocal booth was in his mom's closet. I literally sang to a rack of his mom's shoes on the back of the closet door. The drums took over the entire living room. What great memories.

Jim was in the process of putting a band together, so his bandmates (Bart Millard and Mike Scheuchzer of MercyMe) became a huge part of the whole process with Bart writing and producing songs as did another really talented friend Kendall Combes, my guitar player at the time. Our long time friend Mike Walker played drums. We did the 8 song project in about 2 weeks.

This cd was the beginning for me. I began to watch people respond to the songs both in a worship setting and after they had bought the cd. I cannot tell you how God used it to begin an excitement in me to write more and more worship songs! I still am moved to write songs that unite and nurture the body of Christ! Nothing is more pleasing to my ears or my eyes than to watch and listen to people all over the world as they adore our Father, Creator and Savior.

So, we decided to make this cd available again after many years of telling people we are sorry we have no more. It is available ONLY in digital form and it pleases me to offer this to all of you to celebrate how God has used worship music in us all for all of these years to bring us closer to Him. Enjoy our 15 year old worship project recorded in a house of love about a God who is Love!!!!
