Finishing Jesus Wants My Heart

Sorry for the long silence.  I think the last time I wrote anything we were adding drums to the Jesus Wants My Heart tracks.  I thought I’d share a little of what we’ve been up to since I last blogged:

Bennett is practicing to join NCSU’s cheerleading squad.  Eden’s attempt of catching a duck while paddle boating was rather unsuccessful. And, I had to break the hard news to Mercy that I wouldn’t be playing “Love, Love, Love” at Southeastern’s chapel service.

Well, now almost 9 months later we’re heading to Nashville to finish the rest of the album.  At this point there isn’t a ton to do.  We’ll mostly be doing vocals on everything and then a bunch of electric/acoustic/piano/keys/banjo parts on the rest of the song. (By “we’ll” I mean James – ha, ha)  I always knew he was an amazing instrumentalist and producer…but my goodness he has blown me away with his musical ideas for this CD.  It’s such a huge privilege to get to work with him, and a really great blessing to know how invested he is in making this album great.

I’ll make sure to take a bunch of videos and pictures.  And if you think about it…please pray that God would give us creativity and fruitfulness in our time there.

Talk soon.

    Daniel, I don't know that we have met, but we are Abby, Brentice, Tyler and Brittney's "adoptive parents" at PBC. I just wanted to share with you what a blessing these songs have been. Our 13 month old son is in the PICU and I used to sing these songs to him while I would make his dinner and dance around the kitchen. Now, we have these songs playing to him while he is sedated and on a ventilator. I wanted to provide something "normal" for him and these songs are what spoke to my heart. Thank you for these songs as Jesus has used them to speak to me during happy times dancing around with Grayson, but even now I know he hears them and hopefully remembers how silly I was dancing around. Hopefully soon we will be back to dancing in the kitchen, but for now your songs brighten up our room in the ICU. Thank you!
