Well I can't believe that another year has come and gone. 2011 was a great year in many ways but was also hard in some ways due to a lot of sickness and voice problems. I experienced many great victories in 2011 and also experienced some losses as well. Looking back over the past year there's one thing that is certain and that is that I am truly blessed. I am so thankful for what God does in my life every day and how He proves Himself faithful time and time again no matter what I go through.
There were very many memorable things that happened in 2011,  many great concerts, new songs written, time with family, lots of great stuff. One of the greatest memories that I have is something that happened through a video I posted of a song that I wrote for a young man named Chris Taylor that tragically died in a car accident at the age of 18. Chris had an amazing story and I felt God leading me to write a song that would share his story with the rest of the world. So I wrote a song called "I Have Overcome" that shared how that God helps us overcome the obstacles that we go through in this life. One day I received an e-mail from a 17 year old girl who stumbled across the video on YouTube and shared a letter with me about how it saved her life. In her letter she explained to me how that she had been struggling with depression and suicide and was about to end her life but then she came across the video, listened to the song and to Chris's testimony and instead of ending her life she made the decision to give her life to the Lord. That's the reason I write songs and do what I do is to see lives changed and that story change my life it was pretty awesome & one of the highlights of my year!
2011 was also a big year for me in another way, I had been thinking about taking my music ministry in a different direction for years. Early in 2011 I had a moment with God where I really felt God was saying “it's now or never.” It was one of the greatest experiences I have ever had personally with God. I've never felt so strongly being led of God and any decision that I have made in my music or ministry before. So I said "okay God, if this is what you want me to do I will do it." Immediately I started seeing God's hand moving on my life in a way like never before. I knew this transition would take about a year and a half to accomplish, so all through 2011 and into this new year I have been working hard & putting together this new music and ministry that will allow me to reach more people than ever before with the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am more excited about my music and my future then I have ever been before. God has shown me that greater things are getting ready to happen in my music and in my life and I can't wait, I‘m starting to see the dream take shape!
As one chapter in my life ends, a new one begins and I am more than ready to move forward into the future. I truly believe that 2012 will be a great year of life-changing ministry that will take place through our music. I am putting no limitations on God, but believing and trusting Him for all that He has for my life. My prayer for this year is to make a greater impact in the world than I ever have before. Not to just make music but to make a difference in a world that so desperately needs to hear this message of hope. I am thankful for all the successes and victories of last year but I am not satisfied, I know there is more for me to accomplish and a greater work to do and I am fully ready to tackle the challenge ahead. So I move forward into this year excited, inspired, and focused on the fulfilling the purpose that God has for my life. Many great things have happened in my life in the past couple of years, but I know the best is still yet to come.
