The Jesus Show on Halloween?


 As Sarah Palin would say... YOU BETCHA!!!

I just love this pumpkin!!!  Man I wish I could carve....  Isn't it just the perfect picture of Romans 6:9 (Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him)?

To me, Halloween is the perfect time to celebrate Jesus' victory over death.  I mean why celebrate death when you can worship the one that defeated death?  So enough of the ghouly ghouls.  Get me some of these pumpkins to put on my porch!

See ya at the Jesus Show this Friday and don't forget to put on your new man costume!!! LOL...

Chicago was Awesome!

I made it back from Chicago on Friday with just enough energy left to make it to the prayer meeting. It's always interesting traveling with my two year old daughter Lily, and this trip was no exception. She's quite a talker these days, so before the day was over I think we made friends with just about everyone on the airplane.

Anyway, being back in Chicago was just too wonderful for words. I taught at Living Word Christian Center on Wednesday night and it was awesome to be back "home!" I'll be posting a link to the message I taught entitled "True Peace" soon, so stay tuned...

Of course, no trip to Chicago would be complete without a trip to "Camp Barlow," which is what I lovingly call Pastor and Nancy Barlow's house. They have seven wonderful kids ranging from 2 to 21 and there's never a dull moment. I put together a quick slide show of a few fun moments...

Lastly, please pray for us this week as we prepare to move into our new house on Saturday. I just started packing today... I know, I know, I should have already started. But I just don't like living with boxes and the unplanned,but wonderful trip to Chicago last week set things back a bit... Oh well, it was worth it. LOL!

Chicago Bound!


I got an unexpected phone call from Pastor Winston on Monday asking me to head to Chicago to cover the Wednesday night service while he's in India. Guess, what I said? YES OF COURSE!

So, Lily and I jumped on a plane and arrived here late last night. I'll be teaching on the topic "peace," which is something I think we could all use right now given the upcoming elections, the bank failures, the economy and everything else that seems to be telling us to worry, worry, worry!

Anyway, I'll let you know how it goes, but be praying for an awesome service tonight that will bless everyone and if you're in Chicago - hope to see you there!

Fireproof is awesome!


Brian and I went to see an awesome movie yesterday called Fireproof!  It's about a couple that is on the verge of divorce until the husband's dad gives him a booked called "Love Dare."  Anyway, I won't spoil the movie, but if you haven't seen it - GO SEE IT!  It will minister to you!

Pastor Barlow is a one man Jesus Show!

I mean really, come on. Who is this talented? The man sings, plays guitar (and piano and electric guitar), can preach your socks off, and then prophesy over you right from the throne! And guess what folks, this is just what he did Friday night at The Jesus Show. We were so blessed! I've been getting emails from people all week about it!

Seriously, give this man a recording contract! I've heard him sing hundreds of times. Especially when we worked together at Living Word Christian Center. But never have I seen him like this. I truly believe that the Lord is increasing the anointing on his life and that like his nieces, The Barlow Girl, it's just a matter of time before the masses are enjoying his music.

This one song he did, "Jesus We Love You Lord," was my personal favorite of the night. It's so amazing. I wish you could download it or buy it online. Pastor Barlow, if you are reading this, please, please, please make it available for sale online.

Here's a quick video that I captured of "So Glad You Came for Me," which is another song I love. Please note, the off note female singer in the background must have been someone that walked in off the street or it might have been me although I seriously doubt it since I am such an amazing singer... (yea right...)
