This is the story of the song we avoided for a year. 

We wrote this song in response to the book The Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer. I started reading it with a group of women whom I worked with at the time. The accountability of a group is so helpful to me - I often...


This story happened over a century ago.

As Chris was browsing through library shelves one day, he happened upon a book about the Titanic. He paged through photographs and specs about the ship and its passengers until one story made him pause. This is the story that birt...


This is the story of a family who is precious to us.

At its core, it is the story of anyone who has cared deeply for someone and faced the prospect of losing that person.

We had planned to spend all of Good Friday writing and working on our new record. As life so often g...


We all approach the idea of marriage with different fears and expectations.

When we got the cha...


If you've read other posts on this blog, you know that it’s been a year of great change. I didn't feel ready for any of it. But as I look back on it, I now see signposts sprinkled through the seasons that indicated a coming shift - there so often are, really. At each o...


We've played music for years. The first time we sang together was a thrown-together college covers gig in 2004. It was pretty bad. But, not knowing any better at the time, we forged ahead.

We continued to sing and play together in different bands with different friends....


This is the story of the ring I didn't want.

We explored the historic parts of the city and learned about t...
