new release

meet pierre, my original black sheep. he wants to share with you the exciting news of the 3-song LIVE recording release. he's available at all upcoming shows. you should come and bring your friends to get your own.

Cable Access

Yester evening, Mike Linden and Jake Englund joined me at the Burnsville/Eagan Public Cable Access Studio. We had a blast. We were interviewed by Brian Hawks and had the chance to share 3 original tunes for the This N' That Show. It was just a great first experience. We got to share Soul Nap, Do What You Can, and Home With You. I briefly shared about our friends, Chad and Liz, who have taken to heart the message of Do What You Can (and Liz commented about this in the article below). Of course, they did that before I wrote the song, but they have decided it's unacceptable that anyone in Dakota county go hungry. So they do a monthly neighborhood food drive, and other they know have said "hey, i could do that too." So now 17 neighborhoods in Dakota county do monthly neighborhood food drives. That's so cool! Anyway, be looking out for updates on the airing of the show! Peace and Love!

Update: the first airing of the show is tonight (June 22, 2007) at 11:30pm on cable channel 15 - Burnsville Eagan Cable Television!! It will also be aired 1:00, 2:00, 3:00, 4:00, and 5:00am and 11:30pm Saturday, June 23rd and 1:00 and 2:00am Sunday the 24th.

a different kind of month

this month of june is bringing interesting new opportunities. on friday, my friend, erica and i went to barnes and nobel for a children's summer reading kickoff celebration. it was a very small group, but it was so fun to sing some silly and yet meaningful children's songs and totally connect into the community in a different way. we sang songs about summer and the outdoors and brought a message of caring for the environment.

on tuesday, i'm visiting a safe house and sharing music and some of my story with the women and children there. some of you know that i come from a family with a history of overcoming domestic abuse, and i'm so grateful for the journey and the struggle my mom and i have been through to receive healing and redemption. i hope to be a small part of inspiring hope and endurance for these strong women and their families on tuesday. (if you pray, please pray for this...thank you.)

here's a quote i saw today: "Live simply so that others may simply live."
