We’ve been talking a lot over the last few months about the progress of our new Worship project! The recording, mixing, mastering & graphics are completed and it’s currently in duplication! What does that mean? It means that we’ll have copies ready to ship on Friday, February 10th! So if you’d like to go ahead and get a jump start on hearing the project, you can pre-order your copy today! Once you place the order you’ll also receive a FREE mp3 download immediately via email! So head on over to our Online Store and check out all of the details. At the store you’ll also be able to hear short samples of all 10 songs. After you take a listen… be sure to let us know what you think! You’ll also want to check out the brand new T-Shirt that we designed to match the CD cover… (Thanks to Ansleigh and Bryleigh for their help in making that happen!)
The Dills are ready to record a new CD featuring some of today’s most popular Praise & Worship songs… but we need your help!
We’re giving you an opportunity to help fund this project and get lots of cool rewards in the process, such as digital downloads, autographed copies of the CD, t-shirts, your name listed inside the CD and much more. Click below for more information!
Hallelujah!!! This past Sunday morning in Cartersville, GA we saw 3 lives that were eternally changed! During the invitation time of the service 2 young ladies came and accepted Christ… and then after the service had ended, another young girl gave her heart to the Lord too! It was one of those services that we wished would never end!
But when God really pours out a blessing such as that, you know that the devil is not too far behind to put out your fire. As soon as we got on the bus, we realized that we had a really bad air leak. We did not have time to work on it since we had to get to Hixson, TN for the service Sunday night. So we carefully drove on to Hixson with the bus leaning drastically to one side. We did not even get a chance to look at the problem until after the concert was over… (which was another great service!) Our friend Bob Haynes and his son helped us take off one of the wheels to find the problem. It was a busted air bag on the tag axle! That sounds bad… but it was the best news that we could have received. You see, the tag axle on the bus can be raised which stopped the air leak until we got home. Isn’t it great to know that God Is In Control?
I also wanted to let you know that LeeAnn’s birthday is on Wednesday, November 2nd! You can leave her a message below. I’m sure that she’d love to hear from you!
It’s hard to believe that another month has almost passed by! We started October with a great weekend in Oklahoma & Arkansas as we witnessed a young lady accept Christ! Hallelujah!!! That’s what it’s all about! It looks like we’re gonna finish the month in Cartersville, GA and Hixson, TN this weekend. Be sure to join us if you can!
Even though October has been extremely busy, the whole gang found a little time to relax on the beach in Gulf Shores, AL. This was actually the first time that our girls have been to the beach and they had a blast. It seems like October has created a lot of “first time experiences” for the girls since we also took them to the Memphis zoo last week! They finally got to see why we call them “little monkeys”! 🙂
It’s also been a really exciting time for Shawn and LeeAnn since Logan is a senior this year. We’ve spent most of our Friday nights watching him finish his final season on the football field. He has turned into quite an amazing young man! We are all extremely proud of everything that he has accomplished!
Be sure to check out all of the photos from October on the photos page! Lots of good stuff!
We had a quick question that we’d love to ask! What is your favorite Praise & Worship song? Our “WORSHIP” album was recorded about 4 years ago and we’ve been wanting to do something like that again. The last album contained songs like “Lord I Lift Your Name On High”, “Days Of Elijah”, “You Are Good”, “Here I Am To Worship” and many more. Since there are so many great worship songs that are out there, we’d love to get your opinion. We’re actually in the studio today sorting through a lot of material, so please take a moment and leave a comment below with your thoughts and suggestions!
I spoke with someone the other day that said, “I’ve noticed that you guys have been really busy lately.” To which I responded, “Yes, so busy that I’ve not been able to update the website!” And for those of you that sit by your computer every day, just waiting to get an email from The Dills… “I’m sorry!” 🙂
August was a really busy month with concerts in Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio. We were blessed to see a lot of friends and go back again to several places that we’ve been in the past. But we also had the priveledge to meet new friends and do a lot of things for the very first time. One thing that stands out was the End of Summer Picnic in Hamilton, OH hosted by some of the most wonderful friends in the world, Brody & Ann Jacobs. For the past several years the Jacobs’ have invited their entire church, friends, family and neighbors to their home for a day of food, fun and fellowship. Folks were swimming, playing basketball and volleyball, swinging, sliding and eating all day! Logan and I even got to play a little bit on one of Brody’s “tools”. (You’ll have to check out the photos page to see what I’m talking about.) This year, for the first time, they decided to have some music to end the day so right before dark we put on a concert for approx. 200 people right in their back yard. It was a blast! But the best part was knowing that there were several non-Christians there during our concert. After we finished, Brody shared with us that one person said, “I really liked that group that was singing. They’re really good and they have a very encouraging message.” That person is a Muslim they have been ministering to for a while! Praise the Lord that a seed was planted!
Just last week, Bridget’s dad had surgery in Nashville. Nearly a year ago, he broke two ribs. The ribs broke loose where they connect to the breast bone. He’s been in pain for a while and finally the doctors determined it would require a fairly intense surgical process. The surgery lasted 4 hours and involved the assembly of titanium plates made to fit this unique situation. They had to attach the plates by screwing into the breast bone and into the lower part of the broken ribs. Needless to say, he’s in a lot of pain and recovery is expected to be a slow process. He was released from the hospital on Wednesday and is now resting (and medicated) at home. Please pray that he’ll be comfortable and recover quickly. I know that he’ll be looking forward to being able to get down in the floor again and play with all the grandbabies! 🙂
That’s just a few of the things that have been happening in our crazy life! What’s been happening in your world? Got anything you’d like to share? Just leave a comment below.
