2020 has the award for the slowest year ever but now 2021 seems like it is literally flying by! We are thankful for all the opportunities we’ve had so far this year! Every opportunity to encourage people, share Jesus, and equip the Church! Woohoo!
2020 (so far) Not exactly what we were expecting! A year for creativity and flexibility in sharing hope and encouragement!
A 2019 Look-back – Ministry and Music…
From our Home to Yours…
As the entire world is being held hostage by this terrible virus, we began praying and brainstorming about how we could connect with people to share the Hope of Christ through music and encouragement while being stuck in our homes. We felt that the best way to make that coneection was through social media, and so… We launched a Facebook Live Event that happens three nights a week for the foreseeable future! Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays – 7pm Eastern time! The response has been fantastic! We could all use some encouragement through this season of uncertainty and seclusion. Our hope is in Christ alone! Please join us and invite some friends. You can even host a watch party through your Facebook page! You can find our live videos here… You can even watch previous episodes and you can share those as well! Be sure to like the Russell and Kristi Facebook page to get all the updates concerning the Livestream.
We hope to see you soon!

Christmas Tour 2019 – ‘Love is Here’
2019 has been an ongoing celebration of milestones. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in October! 2019 also marks the 20th year of full-time ministry for our duo. So, to add to the celebrations, the release of our first ever Christmas album – ‘LOVE IS HERE’ – happened on December 1st!
‘Love Is Here’ is a collection of Christmas songs both old and new. The title track – Love is Here – is an original written by Russell and clearly shares the wonder of Christmas and the reasons to celebrate the wondrous gift of Emmanuel, God with us!
In addition to the album, we set out on a Christmas tour. The ‘Love is Here’ tour made stops in…
Fort Smith, AR
Van Buren, AR
Myrtle Beach, SC
Murrells Inlet, SC
Every stop on our tour was an opportunity to share the Hope we have in Christ – The Prince of Peace coming as a child to save the world! Wow! Aren’t we thankful for Heaven’s Perfect Gift – JESUS!
‘LOVE IS HERE’ can be found anywhere you buy music (Apple Music, iTunes, Google, Amazon…etc….)

You’ll also find the ‘LOVE IS HERE’ – T-shirt! Like this one…
Merry Christmas from our family to yours! Love is Here – His name is Jesus!

All By Myself?
The other day I was getting ready in our bathroom and I “felt” the Lord speak to me…
I have always been a person who wanted to do things ‘by myself.’ My family always kidded me, “Oh don’t try to help Kristi open that jar. She wants to do it by herself!” It’s true. I wanted to open the jar, the can, the whatever, by myself. I guess, in this way, I wanted to be independent. I wanted to feel the accomplishment. I wanted to be proud of what I could do alone. I’ve always looked as this personality trait as a plus, something I was kinda proud of, something that meant I would always give everything to try my best. I still think it can be a positive trait; however, as I felt God speak to me the other day, I started to think of it in a different way…
