The Blessing of Friendship…

Right in the middle of planning our church’s first ever Open Mic night, I found myself hospitalized for 5 days with an infection in my right hand!! I was miserable… not just because of the infection, but because I was no where near ready for the event that would happen within a week of my stay. I feared it was just not going to happen…

Then the blessing… I am overwhelmed by the number of friends and church family that rallied to make the event a success! What a blessed night we had with all kinds of music from a number of artists both young and…well… not so young ;)… We hope to do this more regularly, as local & budding musicians need a place like this to share their heart through their music.  So much talent here in Northeast Ohio, and I appreciate the work of artists like Gary Hall and Diana Tyler, whose Open Mic nights inspired me to try it at my own church. Thanks for all you do!

The busy season is upon us: THIS SATURDAY April 15th at 5:30pm, Jason and I will be at Cafe O’play in Stow, Ohio. Enjoy the heart healthy menu choices and coffee bar, while the kids enjoy the separate, glass enclosed play area for the happy hour price of $6.50! The coffeehouse side of Cafe O’play is perfect for a date night, or for a group of music-loving friends to relax and unwind. Hope to see you there!

Then on Easter Sunday at 8:30am, I will be in Silver Lake, Ohio for a gorgeous lakeside service with the Church in Silver Lake. Such a beautiful way to start off the Resurrection celebration! Afterward at 10:30am, I look forward to worshipping with my own church family at the Chapel at Tinker’s Creek in Streetsboro, Ohio, and participating in our annual tradition of the “blooming cross.”


May 4th at 7pm I return to the Morning Owl Coffeehouse in Munroe Falls ,Ohio for a solo show! So mark your calendars!

There have been a number of requests for a recording of my latest song “Mama’s Whispers!” The interest is so great that we are considering releasing it as a single!! Look for more news on that in the coming months…

Once again, thank you for the love and support you all give to us! Your prayers and words of encouragement buoy my spirits during these anxious days, waiting for Deklan’s graduation day.

Carry on and take care!
