Summer is my favorite time of year. I love the outdoors, and enjoy swimming, bike riding, and taking walks. In between my performances and ministry dates, I have time to relax and plan for my upcoming events for the fall and Christmas. I also do a lot of soul-searching- - what is God calling me to say through my music ministry, this coming season? Staying grounded in His Word, and His will for our lives, is something I've been thinking about this past week. I love the parable of the sower - it's one of my favorites. May we all strive to hear His Word, so that it takes root in our hearts, souls and our minds, so we may bear good fruit, in serving Christ our Lord.
