Even though this song has been used in the FBS ministry for many years now, I can’t think of a year when my husband and I have verbalized our need for wisdom more.  Oh, how we need it… daily… hourly!  And the promise to the wisdom-seekers that struck me when I first wrote this song still strikes me today: “I will POUR OUT my spirit on you”!  (click picture above to keep reading!)

With so many things clamoring for our concern, it has been more needful than ever to regularly “press reset”, re-focusing on “The Champion of the Course” as the song states in our New Music Video, “Fix Your Eyes on Jesus”.  The race we are in is not for the faint of heart, yet it is a comfort to know we are not the first runners in this race!  Jesus Christ came and conquered.  He is our Forerunner.  He faced temptations, trials, testings.  In fact, He was “in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:15).  And He is the Finisher of our Faith (Hebrews 12:2) (click picture above to keep reading!)

IT’S FINALLY HERE!!  Today — Digital Album Release!  October 10 — Physical Album Release!  More and more, I am using music as a tool to settle my heightened emotions or fix my mind on truth.  If music drove away the distressing spirit from Saul (I Samuel 16:23), I’ll be first in line to give it a try on my strung-up-with-stress moments!!  On occasion, I’ll even keep one earbud in while falling asleep, streaming soothing instrumental music, and have woken up a time or two at night with the beautiful orchestrations still playing, offering another moment of calm as I doze back off to sleep… (click picture above to keep reading!)

Confession time…
This is perhaps the song I struggle to “live out” the most.  Just a few days ago, I quoted nearly the entire song as part of a desperate prayer to quiet the chaos in my head!  I’m not very analytical at all.  You know those people who have nice, neat little thought-boxes in their head who enjoy piecing life together like a giant Tetris game, one block nicely fitting into the next.  Yeah, they amaze me.  I marvel at the ability to process thoughts a good distance from emotion.  Just wow.… (click picture above to keep reading!)

As I continue to write songs, I realize that so many of them have themes that string from one song to another.  This particular song had its origin as I composed, “Psalm 73” — track 5 on our 2019 “Remember” Album.  As the title indicates, “Psalm 73” takes us through much of that Psalm’s journey from disillusionment and confusion, to confidence and rest in God… (click picture above to keep reading!)

Oh, Y’all.  We’ve been couped up a bit lately.  Anger issues have resurfaced.  Can I get a witness?!  We all need regular remindin’ to clear up the bickerin’ before sunset, so our souls can rest at ease, knowing we are right with God and others… especially as it seems like those who “push our buttons” the most live at the same street address.  And for us married folk, learning to sleep through snoring is hard enough without adding bitter thoughts to your nocturnal troubles.  So learn to live well with that beautiful foghorn you’ve been blessed with!!.  (click picture above to keep reading!)

NEW MUSIC VIDEO, “Under Your Wings” ~ Released TODAY!

Published June 22nd

With having to postpone projects a little longer than hoped, we are THRILLED to release a brand new song, “Under Your Wings”!  This song seemed so fitting when the pandemic hit that I wondered why God deemed it best to postpone this project.  Then the next storm hit … Oh, how we need a “place” to run that is secure, unmoving, rest-giving, peace-filling, earth-dimming… We need for our minds to anchor to truth!  (click picture above to keep reading!)

They finally let me out of the house!  The picture above was a fairly accurate scene of my travels these past weeks (albeit with more pronounced rolling hills).  Oh, the beautiful Wisconsin countryside!  Last week had me over to the eastern side of WI for 5 video shoots, then 2 trips this week 30-minutes north for some pig meat.  I didn’t even really mind having to make the meat pick-up trip twice because they forgot to give me all I was due… just another excuse to ride on the open road!!  (click picture above to keep reading!)

It’s the Little Things + 2021 Tour Plans!

Published May 18th

When much is reduced to little, I think it’s so interesting how our antenna can be especially sensitive to spot out tiny, little expressions of God’s love.  Maybe that was the point to begin with — that we would be drawn back to the Giver, the Sustainer, the Father Who loves us in many little ways often overlooked.  Though the dog pictured above does not belong to me, my dog wears a tag that includes a special verse reference I’ve been reminded of over and over again (click picture above to keep reading!)

NEW LYRIC VIDEO, “None Can Be Nearer” ~ Released TODAY!!

Published April 27th

If there is one truth about my God that has continued to press in deeper and deeper these past many years it is summed up in this most precious verse:  “I will never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5).  I find it highly interesting how God has directed our upcoming CD project to be named “Near You”, and incidentally FILLED with songs touching on themes of God’s presence and His nearness... (click picture above to keep reading!)

Many of you who’ve followed us for a while are familiar with the songs my sister, Heidi Fuller, has contributed to our ministry.  Some favorites of hers have been, “Give Me Eyes That See”, and “The Price He Paid for Me”.  Perhaps her most wide-spread song has been, “I Know” — a song that charts her journey through the heartache of losing a child (and in her case, many children through miscarriage and adoption failures) … (click picture above to keep reading!)

This song has gotten a lot of “mileage” in recent tours.  It serves as a poignant reminder to us that the day we surrendered to follow our Lord Jesus Christ was not only the day we began heading toward a “bright destination” as the song states, but also the day we embarked on a path less traveled — oftentimes a hard path, an unpopular path, a lonely path … (click picture above to keep reading!)
