Last Sunday the Northern Region Praise band and team took the stage at the Lawrence High School Auditorium to lead worship. I am so blessed to play in this group!

We played many songs- among them were “You Are Good” by Isreal Houghton, “Shout to Lord” and “At the Cross” from Hillsong, “Mighty to Save”- the Newsboys version and more! We even got to pull in a wonderful Latin percussionist and a Spanish singer from “open the Eyes of My Heart” in English and Spanish.

I had spent time teaching and directing “You Are Good” with children to sing around Thanksgiving- and I finally got our band leader, Bryan, hooked in to do it with the adult band! It jammed! So joyful!

I also got to do the lead vocal part on “Shout to the Lord”! I love that song! I can really give it my heart!

The service was inspiring, the worship powerful- and there were 2 baptisms to make it a perfect Sunday!

If there was a downside- it is trying to get up at 5:30- something our bodies don’t do easily! But God gave us the strength!

To Him be the glory.
