I have always felt a call to minister, and each position I held God was preparing me. I began a full time ministry of music and sharing my testimony along with the preaching of God's word in the year 2000. I'm a country gospel singer in South Dakota hoping to make a difference through my gospel songs. The world is crashing around us. The love of money and selfish motives drive people to do things that only hurt and will bring no lasting joy. Many call good bad and bad good and the Bible tells us woe to them that do. I am not exactly sure the exact meaning of "woe to them" but it makes me want to ducky my head.
I would not like to have to say that I need this or that before I will come. I come on a "love offering base." If people like what you do and have been moved in their hearts then I feel God can cause a blessing to come about. In some cases where there is no offering taken then depending on distance that I travel and so on, I believe that you will treat me right. As a country gospel singer, my passion is to write Christian songs to inspire others and their faith.

People ask me all the time what I charge to come and minister. I would first like to say that my main goal is to have an opportunity to minister and let God use the gifts He has given to me and entrusted me with. I come to give what God has blessed me with not expecting anything in return for doing so. Then when I receive a blessing from others I am truly blessed. I try just like anyone to make a living but with ministry it's all about trusting and believing in God. Just like on the moneys I receive "In God I Trust."
Born on the prairie in a town Laura Ingalls Wilder called home: Desmet, South Dakota. I was raised on a farm and enjoyed a wonderful childhood with parents that loved and encouraged me. I gave my life to Jesus and was saved at the age of twelve in our home church in Clark, South Dakota. I knew I was a new creation, not perfect, but heading in the right direction. As a boy I would sit beside the record player and listen to recordings made by the Blackwoods, Couriers, Happy Goodmans, Lafevers and others. It was there I learned to sing along with the music. I listened to the words of the songs, what a message each one had.
Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one can come to the father except through me." Mom always used to say, "be sure your sins will find you out!" You can not hide anything from God, but God loves you and cares for you more than you know or understand. God created you to love Him and serve Him with your heart. Jesus said, "If you love me, you will obey what I command." "Love each other as I have loved you." "So your joy may be complete." The joy of the Lord is your strength!
