Turning 28!!

On my 28th birthday, Rahul took me shopping to get some new clothes- something I have been wanting to do since Eden was born, but simply hadn't found the time. We had a great afternooon with the kids and then got ready to go to the Glory Revealed Tour in Lakeland. The speaker for the event was David Nasser, someone Rahul and I truly loved listening to in Tallahassee before we were even an "item." David actually reminded me a lot of Rahul the first time I ever heard him. Again, he had an incredible and challenging message- not to mention a very random sense of humor!
We also helped out at the World Vision Table, helping to promote the amazing work they do: They are dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice.

Just over a year ago, we too "adopted" a little girl, in honor of my parent's anniversary. Mitike, our sponsored child, is from Ethiopia, however, all of the children up for sponsorship at the concert were from India. It was an amazing night!! Over 50 children were sponsored from India and countless more from other countries all over the world! We would encourage you to participate and be a part of changing a life!


I wondered if Rahul was going to like the event, when I saw cowboy hats, fiddles and boots- but by the end, he was sold (I think!)!! I've included a little excerpt from their website that explains all about the tour-

The vision for the project began with Nasser, an Iranian born speaker/author, who, together with Powell, decided to produce a collection of songs taken directly from scripture. The pair wrote many of the songs and pulled the album together by calling on the artists including Michael W. Smith, Brian Littrell, David Crowder, Shane & Shane, and Casting Crown's Mark Hall, to contribute their talents to Glory Revealed.The project's rootsy, Americana style has a sweet Southern flavor that showcases a different side of Powell's musical personality. On Glory Revealed, Third Day's hard-rocking frontman crafts a disc that veers into country music territory and even flirts ever so slightly with bluegrass by utilizing liberal doses of mandolin and fiddle.
