How to Find the Right Guitar Teacher

Learning music is a wonderful thing. Studies show it can improve the overall quality of life of the student in dramatic ways: from emotional and mental health to academic edge. I believe music is one of God’s greatest gifts to Man. But not all music instructors serve up the same quality instruction. I’ve had several students over the years who have told me horror stories about how their previous instructors discouraged them, called them “stupid”, or yelled at them. It’s unbelievable that such behavior even takes place. (And many of those same students have thrived in my studio. So it…

God surprised me!

I was in Brazil on a mission trip in 2008. I have often had the joy of traveling with friends in various parts of the world to minister in worship and preach the Gospel.

Stories I read as a kid inspired my friends…

For the first time in my life I had begun the journey of truly seeking God for myself. I was young but I felt God drawing me. And even though I was young, I was coming off the tail end of experimenting with various temptations and dark influences this world has to offer. My journey had led me to doubt God and left me…

What to do when you’ve had enough

There I was, at a crossroads in my life. I was worn out by the previous year, confused, and perhaps more hurt than I even knew at the time. I had to express what I was feeling. But rather than resorting to anger or falling into depression, I knew that if I could just press into God, my spirit would be lifted and I could regain the strength and clarity that I needed to move forward. If I could just be in the presence of Jesus, I would receive the healing I needed. Have you ever felt this way? I…
