Inspiresong 2018

I got back yesterday from a worship songwriting conference called Inspiresong.  It was held in Aspen, CO.  Keith and Sue Mohr, and Crosspoint Community Church in Aspen put it on.  My music friend, Sam Scales, has went every year.  I felt that I was supposed to go this year, and I’m so glad that I did.

Sam picked me up from the airport on Tuesday, and we stayed with friends of hers in Arvada.  I loved spending hours talking to Sam.  I think it is cool that we have gotten closer and closer to each other as the years have progressed.  She is definitely a God-connection.  I’m so thankful for her encouragement and biblical guidance.

On Thursday, we traveled to Aspen.  I met another person named Aggie, like my daughter, (who is also a member of Terce.)  She is very artistic and enthusiastic like my Aggie.  Aggie Brooks, one of my roommates, took these pictures of me singing.

During the daytimes, there was a panel of industry people from Word Worship in Nashville, as well as Ian Eskelin, a producer, and Paul Herman from CCLI.   During the evening there was a writer’s round of professional Nashville songwriters, an open mic, and a night to perform our co-write. I sang one of my songs on open mic night, which opened up a door of opportunity for us.

I’m thankful that I went.  I met a lot of wonderful people, such as my roommates, Aggie and Dora.  I also got my answer concerning the direction in music that I’m supposed to go.  That answer is to concentrate specifically on Terce. with the girls.  Since this has been a vision of mine for 5 years, I’m happy to be finally able to focus on it.  We spent all this morning working on a business plan.

Now that we’ve gotten a “yes” from God, we will be posting a lot more on all social media sites, as well as releasing a video of some sort every week on our Youtube channel.  You should subscribe to our channel, so you know when it is happening.

Lilly, Aggie, and I are looking forward to digging in and working for the glory of God.
