So this is Andrea, and I've never blogged before either, but Anna's posts were looking kinda lonely so I thought I'd throw in some thoughts. Since joining this band I've been thinking about the road that brought me here. All the little and big things that had to happen in so many lives to bring me to where I'm at today. The jumping off point was a Philosophy class and awesome professor who probably doesn't even know that one comment he made on a paper changed my life for the better and gave me a kick in the butt to get over my fears and write/play music. So in 2008 I started writing by accident really and played for the first time at an open mic where I was the only one who showed up, and therefore had to play everything I could possibly think of. Baptism by fire. More open mics, a few of my own shows (with John Wright), and a childhood friend ending up in a class with some girl named Anna, and here I am. Anna,Clay,Stephanie,and Christy are now stuck with me. "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him" Isaiah 64:4
Ok, so this is my first blog on our new webpage. I wanted to start learning how to design web pages and I figured why not start by doing one for our band. We do have a lot that we are creating right now and working on, so hopefully real soon we can have a sound that will be originally ours! I hope everyone is enjoying the new page, we will add more to it later when things start building and growing even more. I am definitely learning myself that you have to put God first in this area of callings and missions. I know if we try to go out and do this thing ourselves as a band, we will surely sink as we try. We always try to make sure we keep God in front and as hard as it can be sometimes wait on His timing. I know in writing songs personally I have to wait on his influence, because its so much better, its amazing what He creates through us, but it's so hard to wait when you want to write now. Never quit dreaming and pushing towards those dreams because I believe God has something great for all of us, and that's all because He loves us and He wants so much for all of us. I am excited because we have band practice tomorrow and we will get to work on our songs more, and hopefully find out if there are some upcoming shows. Well stay strong, and never give up in the growing process, its definitely worth it when you get to the other side!! Its been so awesome to watch God work in our lives especially when you don't give up! I know in my life its time for a new beginning, leaving the past behind where it should be.
Welcome to the new Page, we will be on more hopefully and blog some, I think its new to all of us, but it will be awesome! I am excited to introduce the new blog and band website, wow that's crazy we have our own site. Have an awesome day, and God bless. Remember, He will never let you fall; He will sustain you!
