So if you are sports fan like I am, you have probably seen several stories about Tim Tebow. Either you love him or you hate him, but either way, you should absolutely respect him. What reason would you have to not respect him (or what reason would you have to hate him for that matter)?
If you don’t know much about Tebow, here’s a very brief bio. Tebow comes from a Christian family who is very devout in their beliefs. His parents practices have carried down to Tebow, and it’s very evident that he loves his savior, from his prayers scattered all throughout a football game to his post-game interviews, Tebow is never shy about giving glory to God. He played college football at Florida where he won Heisman Trophies, national championships, etc…He was very successful in college, however most everyone doubted he would be a successful pro QB due to the talent differential between college and the NFL. Week after week, analysts continue to doubt Tebow, and week after week he continues to win.
That’s not why I love and respect Tim Tebow though. Not because he is a spectacular athlete and because he is a winner. Not because he is a breath of fresh air from most other athletes in the world who are arrogant, greedy and selfish. Though those things definitely contribute to why I love Tim Tebow, I respect him because he is bold in proclaiming what he believes to the entire world. Not in the way that Kanye West or Justin Timberlake or Katy Perry or LeBron James gives glory to God publically. Tim Tebow gives glory to God, and then lets God’s glory shine through him by his actions on and off the field and the way he treats others.
This boldness shown by Tebow inspires me to be more bold. Tebow doesn’t care if he gets criticism from 99% of the world - If he is able to reach 1% with his message he is more than content. I think we could all learn a lesson from the guy with having bold faith. Having what it takes to be in a group of people who don’t share your beliefs and being bold enough make it known what you believe in. I feel ashamed that I have actually been at a meal with non-Christian people and opted not to pray over my meal for fear of making someone uncomfortable. I do that, and then Tebow leads a post-game prayer with his teammates and the opposing team on National TV. I’m inspired to be more like Jesus by the Jesus I see shining through Tim Tebow.
I’m on the Tebow-Train. All aboard!

This is my first blog on the new site. It will be brief. I just wanted to say thanks to those who have supported the album so far by purchasing a hard copy or by purchasing on iTunes. The album is doing well, and I have received much positive feedback from it.
No doubt I am excited about the future. I cannot wait to see what is in store for myself and the band. We are anxious to get out and play this music. God has placed a desire to impact the world inside each one of us, and that desire seems to keep growing. December 9th will mark our first mini-tour in West Texas.
I'll be flooding the site with blogs and photos as we get busier. So be sure to check back from time to time if you are interested to know what we've been up to!
