"Hey Rod, Nice to see you here. Us Minnesotans should get together more often to write songs to the Lord. I to tell you about a great organization nearby. It's the Minnesota Association of Christian Songwriters. Please check…"
I love Jesus and love to write songs about following Christ. My Dad taught me to play Norwegian folk-songs on the piano when I was a kid, and now it is a dream of mine to play in a worship band. I was born in a Navy hospital when my Dad was stationed in Jacksonville, Florida, but grew up in Albert Lea, Minnesota. I ended up joining the Navy myself after high school and played in a variety of shipboard bands during a 21-year naval career. Along the way, God tugged on my heart and drew me in...and my music followed. By God's grace, I recently completed a Christian Ministry degree at Regent University. Now, with the gifts God has given me, I seek to "sing to the Lord a New Song" (Psalm 96:1). Blessings to each of you as God leads you!
Contemporary Worship Music and songs about living a Christ-centered lifestyle are my favorite.
Favorite Bible Verses / Passages:
"You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart" (Jeremiah 29:13 NIV).
"Come near to God and he will come near to you" (James 4:8 NIV).
"One thing I ask from the LORD, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple" (Psalm 27:4 NIV).
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight" (Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV).

Hey Rod, Nice to see you here. Us Minnesotans should get together more often to write songs to the Lord. I to tell you about a great organization nearby. It's the Minnesota Association of Christian Songwriters. Please check out all the MACS benefits on their website: http://macsmn.org/memberships-benefits/ They also send out announcements via their Facebook page with important dates for meetings and concerts as well as opportunities for your music. I look forward to meeting you at a future meeting and hear what songs the Lord has blessed you with.
All about Worship and spreading God's LOVE through our songs,
Ephesians 5:16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. 18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.
