As we sit here prepping for a band rehearsal tomorrow, listening to Adele’s “Rolling In the Deep” (our homework for next weekend’s conference) can’t help but think about the past month or so… So many great events and we keep on rolling…

It’s been busy…we had an amazing weekend with the youth from our home diocese and these cool guys called “Popple” at the Pensacola-Tallahassee Diocesan Youth Conference in January. This non-stop weekend was closely followed by two Catholic Schools Week Concerts at St. Mary’s in Fort Walton Beach and St. John the Evangelist in Panama City. We had SO much fun with all of the students, and were especially touched by the students and staff at St. Mary’s…not only had they picked their Catholic Schools Week theme based upon our original song, “Let Your Light Shine”, but they surprised us by cleverly concealing flashlights until we started singing “Let Your Light Shine”. Coolest thing we’ve ever seen! All of sudden the entire school is waving their flashlights back and forth…we’ll never forget that moment and the laugher and joy it brought to us. February’s events were brought to a close by a marathon day traveling across the Florida panhandle to make it to two events…UR 1:13 (diocesan young adult ministry) unveiled their new name, design and promo video (we were honored to have “Let Your Light Shine” used in their promo video) and the middle school youth of our diocese gathered together for a rally facilitated by Laura Adams.

Now we’re into March and getting together tomorrow to rehearse and prepare for a weekend with the youth at the Diocesan Youth Conference for the Diocese of Savannah. We’re excited to spend the weekend ministering and worshipping with some great keynote presenters and a wonderful host diocese. Please pray that the Lord will use us to help inspire joy, prayer, faith and hope in the youth that hear the music we’ll be sharing.

As always, the support of those who pray for us and encourage us mean so much…we would not be equipped to respond to this calling without your help and your prayers lifting us up!
