Music is such an amazing thing. I am always fascinated at how a different sound can make you feel an emotion. Think of how boring a movie would be without music. A scary movie would not be so scary without the intense music in the scary parts. Music can make you feel things.
Sometimes I envision us as puppets with either God or Satan as our puppetmaster. If we dedicate ourselves to God and we listen to music that glorifies Him the intense worship we can feel is inexplicable.
Now look at the opposite. How many times since Columbine have we heard either music or video games blamed for the reasoning behind a youth who has gone on a murder spree. When they have been teased or made to feel less than human and then by listening to music that speaks negative or whatever it empowers them to kill. Satan must be proud.
I prefer to focus on Godly music. I have noticed in my own life a progression. Before I was a Christian I used to listen to whatever was on the radio. After I became a Christian I put that down and listened to worship songs. After a time I began to listen only to songs that spoke of God and how we feel about him. True worship songs. No more even Christian radio because it is so commercialized. Some songs seem to speak of God but if put in different hands they could be spoken of another person or anything.
Now after being at IHOP for as long as I have, listening to the music that comes from hearts dedicated to God and giving Him all the worship we can, the music is so different that I can never go back to anything else. It is a progression. I am being prepared for the eternal music from the throne of God. I CAN HARDLY WAIT!

I apologize to anyone who reads my blog for not writing for so long.
God has turned my life upside down again!
He has me in a time of intimacy and quietness.
So all of you who want to know what is going on in my life will just have to wait!
I can assure you all, that what He is doing is an amazing thing. I am eager to see
all of what unfolds from this time.
I am hoping the Lord will soon release me to begin to promote the Foundation and move forward with the vision He gave me. Please continue to contact me regarding your donations of musical instruments or monetary gifts.

This is for you Rachel

Hey everyone.... sorry I have not posted in a while. My computer crashed and I decided why waste 6 or 700 dollars when what I really want is an IMac. I am just going to wait until I can get one of those. I really want to be able to make movies and store my 8000+ pictures and all that sort of stuff. So I am now reduced to being one of a thousand people who congragate at the library and use the public computers there. It is quite funny when someone beside me comments on what I am doing...
Oh well.
Life is good and God is good.
I will try to post more often now so that I can retain my gold member status on

Guitar Maker

I have a friend in the Lord who I have known for many years. He has been a worship leader for over 20 years. God has blessed him with an incredible talent. He makes guitars. He has made a bass guitar for his son, a fretless bass for another bass player at our church, and he has made a few acoustic guitars. What is so amazing to me is the sound that they make. It is such a pure sound. If you are a guitar player (or bass player) I would highly recommend checking out one of his guitars. Here are some pictures of the first guitar he made for himself.
His name is Luke Anderson and if you are interested in him making a custom guitar, or bass for you, please email me and I will have him contact you. My email address is:
