Pay to What???

So as many of you know, music in our home isn't just something that we play, it's a big part of what we do.  Music is life in our home, and there is always at least one project happening, and often more than one.  I've been to more shows than I can count where, if … Continue reading Pay to What???

Getting Real

Today, I need to get personal, and I need to get real.  I could ask the question, "What does it take to become a minister?", or make a comment regarding hypocrisy, and how most people (including myself), will make complaints about what other people are doing, but refuse  to see it in themselves.
