THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU to everyone who has cheered us on through all the challenges on the road to putting out this album!
We have given birth- and the baby is ready to meet the world!
Here are the thank you’s from the inside of the CD:
First of all we’d like to thank our Heavenly Father. By Him we have life and breath, voices to sing with, talents to play instruments and a passion in our hearts to create music. Because of Him all things are possible- even finally putting out this CD! Thank You God!
Immeasurable thanks to our fans and brothers and sisters in Christ who have encouraged us to put out this project and cheered us along the way through the obstacles and struggles!
Huge thank you to the rest of our band: LIFLIGHT: My brothers Chris (bass) Gibbons and Gary (drums)
Gibbons and Johnny Vicaire who played the basics on that crazy week in March. Ralph and I love and appreciate your skill and friendship more than you know!

Warm thank you to our beautiful children Caleb and Hannah for being our greatest fans and a huge inspiration for our songs- and for making us laugh after some difficult sessions!
Thank you to our parents: Polly Joan, Paul Gibbons and Gisela Kinscheck who have been a sounding board for ideas, support, advice and sometimes a shoulder to cry on! We love you!
Love, Ralph and Julie
PS- Ralph did such a great job not only co-songwriting but engineering the recording sessions at our home studio, The Shed, and elsewhere, spending hours and hours arranging and creating and re-doing parts from flutes to violins to crazy solos to some stuff we didn’t use because it was too crazy! You are so talented! I am so blessed to have him as my musical partner and partner in life! God is so good!
