So... it's midnight, and we're all in the van after a great night in the St. Louis area. It was a small, but powerful show. God really showed up and blew us away. Thanks for everyone who came out to the show! We really had a blast.

We're all so tired now. I'm about to crash on the bench of the van in a sec. Pray for us, because Marcus is driving and trying to sing 'Disturbia'. haha... not good.

We're headed to Lincoln, Nebraska for a D2Share conference tomorrow. Should be good.

How's everyone doing? What's happening with ya'll right now? Wish everyone could've been here tonight at the show. : (

peace my friends.

Back at it

Ok... sorry it's been so long since we've posted something! We've been really busy. And we're proud to say that we don't 'outsource' this blog to anybody outside of the band. This is 100% genuine Leeland content... straight from us. :-)

We're in Nashville writing more songs! They just keep coming and we're gonna record as many as we can. Below are some iPhone pix of what a typical writing session with Leeland is like. He plays musical chairs with every instrument in the building...

PS... For those who didn't hear... Mike got in a 4-wheeler accident a week ago. It was pretty serious, but it could have been much much worse. He's out and about now, and feeling much better. God really protected him and we're very thankful for that. Thanks for the prayers! -jack

Studio Pix 3

Ordering burritos!

Leeland jammed his thumb playing soccer.

Jake's playing Risk on the computer.

Trimming the hobo beard.

We took a trip to Ed's back yard and played on the big fallen tree.

A Challenge

Hey guys and gals,

Hope you're having a great day. Yesterday we played at a Dare2Share conference in Columbus, OH. I was so encouraged yesterday about witnessing. I think when you grow up in the church like I have, you can get so used to hearing about certain things that you loose the real passion you should have. I felt the love and conviction of God fill me up yesterday. Why don't we tell the world about Jesus? What's stopping us? There are people all around us that will go to hell if we don't share with them this amazing news... this beautiful gospel. And it's not just an eternal hell people face, what about all the heartache and pain that can be avoided by living for Jesus.

What is "witnessing" any ways? Is it going door to door? Or walking around on the street and directly confronting people about their spirituality? It can be both of those things, but it's also something more. A witness is someone who's literally seen, heard, and experienced something. What have you seen, heard, and experienced in your relationship with God? That's your testimony. That's a big part of what you need to be telling people. Just be transparent and tell them about all the things God's done in your life. And if you think He hasn't done much, just look around because it's everywhere.

When you pray today, ask God to set up divine appointments with people who need to hear that Jesus loves them. You'll be surprised by God's response, believe me. Finally, walk in love. The whole Gospel is based on love, so we can't go around contradicting it with a mean, judgmental manor. People don't need to be reminded about how bad they are... they need to be loved just as they are and they'll become the people God's called them to be.

I'd love to get some comments on this post in a few days from people who put this into action. I love you guys! We're headed back to Nashville to the studio. Please be praying for us as we're recording these new songs.

In Christ,
