PRAISE POINTS

  1. For how God used my music to encourage the incarcerated men that I ministered to in Nebraska with Prison Fellowship – check out this incredible story from the spouse of one of the men
    • “Good evening. I reached out to the prison fellowship and told them my husbands story, they gave me your name and thought it would be nice for you to hear about the impact you have. Last week, you performed at a prison in Omaha, Nebraska. My husband was there. My husband has been struggling quite a bit. He is getting really close to coming home, just over a year away (from being down since 2011). He has been struggling with the fear and anxiety there along with some medical issues and upcoming surgery. When he was leaving the chow hall that day, he heard you singing. He went to see the performance. He called me that night and was very emotional. He told me that your performance hit him harder than he thought anything could. He tried to hold it together while he stood there, but at the end, he started talking to Liz. She told him your name and suggested that he go talk to you. At this point he was so overcome with emotion he could no longer hold it and was crying. There were other guys there talking to you and he didn’t want to approach you as he was crying. He asked me to try to find out who you were so I could listen to your music. I attend church every Sunday, it is something that I need. I’ve tried to explain this to Travis, but he has never really understood. For the first time, after hearing your worship, he finally got it. He finally felt the love of God. He understood the power of worship. In a very dark spot for him, God sent you to show him the light, to remind him that he is never alone and that he is lovable and loved. I, we wanted to thank you for that. I’m so grateful that you took the time to go spread the word and remind all of these men that they are worthy. I did look up your music and added it on Amazon music to not only his playlist, but mine as well. I really like the Pharisee in me. It is a beautiful song and I’ve passed it along to my sister that I attend church with. Thank you again for what you do.”
