Jesus, who am I that You are mindful of me? This is Your work. Every part of it. All I can say is that I love you too. I exalt You for from You, through You, and to You are all things. To You alone be the glory forever! – Zach
First and most importantly, I would like to thank my Lord and Savior for allowing us to record this album. It was amazing just how clearly He opened all the doors for us and for that I am so grateful. – Kristian
My precious Lord, I bless Your holy Name. What thing can be of any worth without Your breath giving it life? “Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name; make known His deeds among the peoples! Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him; talk of His wondrous works! Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord!” (Ps. 105:1-3) – Rachel
The Band Thanks:
Wayne and Jewel, Brian and Mary Dee, Mike and Hilde, without your faith and prayers, none of this would exist. Thank you for loving us and believing in God’s grace at work in us, and confidently expecting greater things than we dare to imagine. This is a testament to you all! For all the “mama tears” shed, we’re thankful. We love you. Meleah, saying that none of this would happen without you is an understatement. But that doesn’t compare to the joy of you just being on this journey with us through it all. Kenny, thank you for living a life that says, “I love You too”. We’re so proud to call you friend and Pastor from the very beginning. You magnify Christ in boldness and brokenness. Keep your heart headed for Home! Don, there’s no one else we’d rather work with. The Lord knew what He was doing placing us in your studio through a very tough time. You are a patient shepherd. There aren’t sufficient words. We love you. Greg, it’s rare to find someone who displays such excellence and character both spiritually and artistically. Everybody knows it…and you taught us the shoulder-shrug dance. Thank you both for keeping your ears open in the clamor and the beauty, alike. You guys be stretchin’. Mike, we’re glad to have been your final test as an intern. Congratulations for putting up with us, and for being a great new addition to the team. Thank you for teaching us how to pronounce your last name. Gang vocal group, thanks for being part of one of our favorite memories from this project. Your hearts of worship and beautiful voices are a highlight! Brandon Collins (aka Dr. Brundon), thank you for being open to outrageous requests from strangers, for being so incredibly generous with your time and talents, and for being a magician with the ivories. And strings. You’re a great band cousin. David, you and Deb were such a joy to have in the studio. The cello gave just the right dimension, but also spoke such comfort when it was needed in the studio. Richard Scott, for dominating the drum set, and being such a great sport. You were a fantastic addition to the group. Stephen, for doing every outrageous thing that was asked of you (however difficult), and for doing it with a smile. Nathan, you truly did everything heartily, as unto the Lord. It shines through beautifully in the music and your life. Pappy, Betsy, Maury, Mr. and Mrs. Weldon, for taking us in as your own. Fox Family, you guys are precious saints. Missy, only the Lord knows your heart and faithfulness to hold up our arms, and your reward will be from Him. We hope this project is a small part of that. You are far more of a blessing than you know! Salvation Army ReCreate Cafe, you guys continue to be our biggest allies. Thanks to your hospitality, many of these songs were formed in your halls! Precept Transform, our love goes to our friends in both the U.S. and Canada—keep holding out the word of life! Pastor Frank, thanks for being such a vocal and active supporter through these years. We pray that this project will refresh you as you continue to follow Jesus and feed His sheep. Calvary Chatt. Youth Group, it’s an honor to worship Jesus with you every week. You guys are rock stars. To everyone who contributed to make this project possible, you are just as much a part of this as we are. Truly the Body working together as one. We hope that we don’t disappoint you and make you wish that you spent your money on something else (like paying to get your hair cut into a mullet or something amazing and inspirational like that). Guy on a Buffalo, for unending entertainment and inspiration. We couldn’t have made it through those long days without you.
