Missy Wilson

Thanks to Steve Cherrico of Singing Praises Day 6 I had the incredible opportunity to meet Missy Wilson a few months ago. Missy, her husband Mike and her family live in Franklin, TN. Yet I met Missy in an airport as we were headed to Haiti. Missy and Mike are the founders of myLIFEspeaks, a non profit organization that speaks up for those who can't speak up for themselves. Take a look at their website and their 2012 brochure and see what they are doing. Yep, I mean now.

Missy is feisty, energetic, outspoken, and determined. And I say those with the utmost respect and admiration. It is those traits that have made her the perfect person to change the world! And changing the world is what she is doing! Haiti will never be the same again because of her love and dedication to speaking up for those who can't. At first, I was slightly intimid…

Steve Cherrico

I don't even know where to start on this one! Steve Cherrico may be one of the most incredible people on the planet. If you know him, you completely understand without further explanation needed. Steve may be one of the most genuine people I know. Let's be honest, many of his amazing attributes are because he is married to one amazing woman, the Jessi Cherrico. That probably was his wisest decision ever outside of accepting Christ as Savior, of course. 

I met Steve 13 years ago when I moved to Tennessee.  I have had the privilege of doing ministry with Steve in several capacities. I've had to opportunity to see firsthand how he leads with a love and passion for people, his insatiable desire to learn, and courage to stand for what is right and just. 

Steve currently works for First Priority of America.  If you've not heard of F…

Anne Kiernan

Okay, so moving on from writing and songwriting right into another form of art. Design Art. Anne Kiernan embodies the meaning of an Artisan. Her graphic design is stunning art. Her ability to portray visually what 1,000 words could not express is priceless. She is gifted at many types of art and she continues to grow and mature in her talent. You can check out her portfolio here. Go ahead, check it out now. She also has countless of pieces of commercial design artwork that makes any marketing department happy to hire her.

She loves to …

Jason Wain

And today I continue with the theme of songwriters in this post. I met this stellar person through Writer Will (I wrote about him on Singing Praises Day, here's another reason to sing his praises). His name is Jason Wain. Jason writes, plays and sings his own music (and has been known to do a Journey cover before). And you can watch all his videos on's one of his newest ones: When You're Gone
As you can tell (since you just watched at least one of his videos) Jason is talented musically, but I'm sure you know by now that there's more than just having talent. Jason is probably one of the top 5 most positive people I have ever exaggeration here. Top 5. EVER. He's kind...and not the southern type of kind...he's genuinely kind - to your face and when you leave (if I've offended you, think about it, you know it's true). I'…
