7 DAYS OF GREAT CANADIAN GIVEAWAYS

CONTEST NOW CLOSED!



I am very excited to announce a new initiative called “7 Days of Great Canadian Giveaways” launching this February 2017. 

The concept is not necessarily new—it is loosely based on a contest that I personally participated in last year in a completely different industry. BUT it has a sufficient enough uniqueness to it that, if you are a fan of Christian books and music, you are going to love it! 

For seven days starting February 6, 2017 (tentative date), you will have an opportunity to…

2016: MY YEAR IN REVIEW

The top news stories for 2016 according to many mainstream media outlets included a contentious election, civil wars, devastating fires, terrorism around the globe, and the deaths of some of the most influential musicians of our time. While the impact of these major events continues to impact millions, my focus in 2016 was to keep my eyes on Jesus and live my life to the glory of God by spreading the gospel through my music and prose. I am so grateful for the doors the Lord opened (and closed) in 2016, and…

A DIFFERENT KIND OF GIVING: FIVE CHARITIES WORTH LOOKING AT THIS CHRISTMAS

I am the first to admit that I sometimes get caught up in the frenzy of the holiday season. During those times, when I am out and about shopping, I tend to be as generous to myself as I am to family and friends. It takes conscientious effort to pull back and ask myself, “Do I really need that?” More often than not, I will indeed think twice about buying that article of clothing as I focus my attention on those less fortunate than me. 

We all have reasons we donate to this charity or that. I myself have a…

IN HONOUR OF MY FATHER, A SOLDIER

 


My father John was born into a farming family in southwestern Saskatchewan, the youngest of three children. This is his family’s homestead. I wonder if he had any inkling as a boy that one day he would travel the world and meet some of the most famous people in modern history! 
 


This is my father’s mother, who, sadly, died when he was a teenager. My father told me on a number of occasions that I reminded him of her. I take great comfort in that, as she was a believer in Christ. 
 


During the…

TOP TEN TIPS FOR A TERRIFIC PHOTO SHOOT

Branding is key for musicians (and other creative artists). Having professional, top-notch photos that visually represent who you are as an artist is one of the best ways to support and further your brand. 

After two successful photo shoots in 2011 and 2013 by Allison with Esprit Photography to accompany the release of my two CDs (Turn the Page and Red & White), I decided this fall it was time to update my professional photos. As Allison was on sabbatical for 2016, I contracted Erin Crooks Photography,…

HOLY SPIRIT RELEASED!

As I was going for my daily walk on the eve of the release of my new single “Holy Spirit” (September 9, 2016), I began to think about what the headline for the blog officially announcing its release (i.e. this one) would be. And immediately, the name HOLY SPIRIT RELEASED! came to me. 

Recording and releasing this song is far more than something done for my personal gain. I want to see people—that includes YOU—rise up to the fullness that Christ has destined uniquely for each person. I want to see the Holy…
