Getting Truth into Your Heart

Having a head full of truth is wonderful, but when truth hits your heart, something ignites.  It’s not just words on a page, but relevant and practical insight on reality.  It affects your whole life.  Jesus said He is the truth (John 14:6) and He wants to be in both your head and your heart.  One of the most creative ways to let truth get into your heart is through music!  Music is so powerful, it can transform someone in three minutes where a spoken message can take 30 minutes.  I try to write songs that touch the heart.  Songs like Take It To Heart, Stand Firm and Be Strong, and Worthy and So Wonderful have provocative words and passionate music born out of my own journey…lessons learned with Scripture applied.  May you enjoy the music and may it deeply touch your heart.


The New Instrumental Album

The new album called Instrumental Guitar Volume 1 is out on iTunes, our product page, as well as other venues.  It has a variety of styles with beautiful guitar techniques.  You can listen to excerpts of each song at or and purchase individual songs if you’d like.  Or you can get the whole album at this link at a discount:  Click this link to purchase & download Instrumental Guitar Volume 1.  The stories behind the songs are on my blog.


What’s Up for May

At the beginning of this month, I had a wonderful experience with Brentwood Bible Church, leading them in worship, seeing old friends, and sharing some “small world” stories with a few folks.  Just a couple of days before that, the Junior High bands at Valley Christian High School marched down main street of Disneyland which I was one of the band directors…very fun!  This week, I will hold the Spring Recital for my guitar students in Los Altos.  Twice a year I have these recitals in order for my students to perform in an encouraging environment and display what they are learning.  Their ages range from 8 to 60 years old and they range from very beginning to advanced.  I’ve began a new recording project called Flame which incorporates the songs of mine I haven’t recorded yet such as Flame, Worthy & So Wonderful, and You Are My God; it also will include three powerful songs that have significantly shaped my life over the years Make My Life a Prayer, Water Grave, and He Is Alive.  This album should be out the end of June.  Over the Memorial Day Weekend, I’ll be leading worship with Peninsula Bible Church in Willow Glen during their two Sunday morning services.
