New project moves to Kickstarter.com
Hello friends and family –
I wanted to update you all on what has been going on with our newest project, “Home”. The new CD is in the middle of development, we have 6 songs completely done and several more in the works. We are preparing our artwork materials for the CD packaging, and have recently created a Kickstarter.com page for fundraising. The fundraising will be used to offset some of the costs of production. We have already paid for much of the project through the generosity of early donors. THANK YOU!
But I wanted to give you all a chance to see our Kickstarter project page before it goes “live”. I know many of you have already supported us with this project, so I wanted to include you in the excitement of getting this going. We still need your prayer support and when the project goes live later this week, I would very much appreciate it if you passed the message along to your friends and family. Even small gifts will help us make this project a reality.
One of the main goals I have with this particular project is to make the CDs available to people who need it without cost. So, when I sing at funerals or when someone says to me that their friend could really use my CD in their struggles with grief, I can send them one for free. Only through the support of many people will that be possible. Of course I will have the CD available for sale at concerts and on-line, but being able to give this music as a gift is so much more important.
Below is a link to our Kickstarter project page. I created a short video so people can get an idea of what the project will be like – and what it is about. I get choked up when I watch the video (I get choked up at Folger’s commercials too :-)). Perhaps it will inspire people to join us on our journey “Home”.
Also, a reminder for those who have already given and are sending photos, please send those to me as well so we can start working on the artwork. If you have already sent a photo, thank you.
The funding period will be from October 4 through November 2 (All Soul’s Day). If we receive the full pledged amount of $4000, we will receive the funding pledges. If we fall short, we will not receive anything from this process. That would be unfortunate, but please know, we are still committed to creating a wonderful project regardless of the funding through Kickstarter. But the donations will help us with the ministry side of the project since we won’t have to make it up later with sales.
Please share with your friends and family. If you are not on Facebook, please feel free to forward this message to anyone you know who might consider supporting us.

Thank you so much for your support over the years. We could not have done all we have without you.
