"Ummm....let's try that take again..."

"Okay, so I think we'll get it next time around. Maybe one more time?!"



Yes, days in the studio are always a challenge as instrument and vocal parts are recorded and scrutinized...and re-recorded once again. Thankfully, we've found a studio that we really like working with, making the project much more enjoyable! The tracks actually went down really well and we had many moments of smiles and laughter intermingled.

Many thanks for your prayers last week. I think the official count is 11 songs completed thus far, with the possibility of adding a couple more in a few weeks when we head back again. We are very excited about this project as it includes many songs that are often requested, plus a couple new ones that have recently ministered to us personally.

Due to the upcoming travels, etc... we are unsure of the actual release date but we'll keep you informed. Please pray for us as we continue to work on details such as pictures, layout, copyrights, and finishing the mixing/mastering process!

Still smiling!

"Okay, so THIS will be the final take!"

Getting ready for Daddy's Song.

Trying to wait patiently in the studio.

Ready to go!

We were surprised to find our previous CD hanging on the studio wall!

"And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work."
2 Cr. 9:8

I'm glad that your recording adventures are going so well for all of you! Practice makes perfect, perhaps? ;-) We will be eagerly awaiting the "cd finished" announcement, Rachel!

I haven't caught up with getting your previous CD's and you keep producing new ones! ;-)

I have to tell you Rachel that my favorite song since March of last year is your "It Won't Be Long". I consider it masterfully done in all ways. God has given you a wonderful talent with your writing, music, and voice.

God Bless you and your family,
