Joan Walker’s Step by Step: Is your faith connected to your fitness

Written by Staff on May 7, 2018 – 6:51 am -

Step by Step by Joan Walker

Step by Step by Joan Walker

It was one of those weekends. One day I ran out of time to do my devotions in the morning (of course, something that could have been avoided), while another day I was able to read my bible, pray, and even enjoy a couple of online church services. How does this apply to my journey to better physical health?

 

In one of my earlier articles, I mentioned how I feel your journey to physical health also greatly affects your spiritual health. Unfortunately, it goes the opposite way as well. If I haven’t taken the time to pray, to read the word of God, to listen to what the Lord has to say to me, I can lose focus, both spiritually and physically. I look back at the weekend and what I ate, and I can see that I made better choices on the day I drew closer to the Lord than on the other day. Has this happened to you as well?

 

This month, I want to go back to the beginning of my journey. I am on a weight-loss program that is well-known, where you count points for everything you eat. Most of the fruits and vegetables are free, meaning they are zero points, so they don’t count in your total points that you can consume in a day. Some clean proteins are also free, such as chicken breast, eggs, or shrimp. Each day you get a certain number of points. All foods, other than those mentioned above, have points assigned to them – based on portion – and as you eat them your number of points for the day diminishes.

 

Step by Step by Joan Walker

Joan Walker

My favorite thing of this program is exactly that. All foods, based on portion control, have points. So that means, theoretically, that I can eat anything. Of course, there is moderation involved. That chocolate cake at Starbucks is permissible. I can calculate the points, but it won’t be the most beneficial snack to my overall health. I originally started on the plan back in the fall of 2016 and successfully lost about 25 pounds.

 

I allowed the stresses of life to derail this new way of eating, and by March of 2017, I had to admit I was no longer following the plan. A huge new stress popped into my life in May. A job that I had for almost 11 years was suddenly gone. I allowed all the old and new problems of life to affect my weight. I let any remaining discipline I still had dissolve, and suddenly, chocolate was much more important to me than fitting into those jeans in my closet.

 

However, by the fall of 2017, I had made up my mind that I would once again join the program. Since October, I have lost almost 40 pounds, and those are pounds I never want to find again.

 

Not only is the program very doable, but I have great support through my family and social media. In between preparing for, and going to, job interviews, I get outside and move. Not only do I exercise and eat according to the plan, counting points for everything I eat, I also look at the spiritual portion of my journey.

 

I am reading a book called “Made to Crave,” written by Lysa TerKeurst. There is a devotional companion to the original book, and they both have been an immeasurable help to me as I discover how my physical health and spiritual health are closely knit together. I highly recommend these two books to you while you are on your own journey of weight loss and spiritual wellness.

 

Step by Step by Joan WalkerI would love to hear from you if you are on your own journey, because I know for a fact that having support and accountability with others when you are on a similar path is invaluable. You know where I am right now, so be sure to check back right here each month, as I will be updating you on my weight loss, and yes, even weight gain.

The Torchmen Quartet prove “Faithful” after almost 50 years

Written by Staff on March 30, 2018 – 8:40 am -

Canada's premiere quartet, the Torchmen

Canada’s premiere quartet, the Torchmen

 

The Torchmen Quartet: Faithful

Recorded at Crossroads Recording Studio, Grant Ave Studios

Producers: Chris Allman, Amy King, Jon Hisey

Label: Independent

Review by: Lorraine Walker

 

It was a pleasure to receive the latest album from the Torchmen Quartet, entitled “Faithful.” Appropriately named, this recording talks about being faithful to the Lord Jesus every day, through every difficulty, and in every circumstance. I have known the TQ’s members, Mike Moran, Jon Hisey, Sandy MacGregor and Jeff Tritton for a long time and can attest to the fact that these gentlemen have been faithful to their call and to the Lord.

 

From the very first play of the first cut on the project, this CD feels like the TQ you know and enjoy, but upscaled to an even better version of themselves. “It’s An Everyday Thing,” has the type of instrumentation and vocals that listeners of Torchmen projects are used to, with violin and steel guitar, and the melody line seems perfect for MacGregor, who handles the song with ease. Special note that the drums on this track were played by Michael Booth, who has an excellent touch on the toms. This tune was written by Rebecca J. Peck, who also wrote two more cuts on this album.

 

The Torchmen Quartet's latest release, Faithful

The Torchmen Quartet’s latest release, Faithful

“Faithful Father” is an easy-listening quartet song, written by Rodney Griffith and Chris Binion. It’s a good reminder that no matter what, our Heavenly Father is faithful; much more so than we can possibly be. I enjoy Tritton’s vocals regardless of what he sings, and he adds his smooth tones to this song which is polished and so comforting to the ear and the heart.

 

“Crown Him King,” a quartet favorite by Luther G. Presley and Wally Varner, is handled effortlessly by this seasoned group. So well, I’m almost positive they have recorded it before. The quartet has recorded over 30 projects and I don’t claim to have every project, so it could well be that they have. Regardless, it is an excellent track.

 

“What If Someone” is another smooth Tritton song, written by Lanny Wolfe. It will make you wonder what if you had never been told about Jesus…and who you should be telling about Him today that may not hear about the Lord in any other way.

 

“I Want to Live Like Jesus,” written by Ernie Haase and Dianne Wilkinson, has the flair and instrumentation of a Cathedral Quartet cut. I so enjoyed the precision and thought behind this tune.

 

The Torchmen Quartet's latest release, Faithful. Back Liner

The Torchmen Quartet’s latest release, Faithful. Back Liner

Torchmen listeners may not be overly surprised at some song choices by MacGregor, but I have to admit, when I heard the opening strains of this song and realized what it was, I couldn’t believe my ears. But what a treat! If you listened to Christian music in the ‘80s, you couldn’t help but hear Twila Paris sing, “The Warrior is a Child.” MacGregor takes this song to new places and it truly becomes a quartet song. Great job, gentlemen. Kudos to your producer, Chris Allman.

 

“Good Things” is another Rebecca Peck song, this time with David Jenkins. Another finger-snapping tune shows the men’s crisp timing and more great vocals by Tritton.

 

“Reunion with You” begins with a melancholy tone in both lyric and notes, but sadness changes to hope with the chorus which reminds us that there will be an eternal reunion with our loved ones someday. This song by Tim Lanier immediately reminded me of my mom who passed away almost 8 years ago; however, the pang of separation never seems to diminish. Mike Moran tells this story with finesse and the ability to communicate emotion, thought and lyric, that has made him a favorite with Canadian audiences.

 

“Wonder Working God” lists among its writers the husband/wife team of Zane and Donna King. I prefer to listen to a new project without reading the liner first, so I knew this was a special cut even before reading that Donna was a part of it. She is one of the most talented people in Christian music and it seems that anything she is a part of becomes touched with a special sparkle that is all her own. One of my favorite cuts.

 

“I’m Gonna Keep Praying,” another Rodney Griffith song, reminds us what a privilege it is to be able to talk to God any time, anywhere. Another easy-listening song that has powerful, understated lyrics. That may sound like an oxymoron but when you listen to the song, you will agree.

 

Torchmen

Torchmen

“What Kind of Man,” another Dianne Wilkinson song, helps us look at the humanity of Jesus, which is not a subject often addressed by preachers, let alone Christian music. Well done, Dianne and Janice Crow. Well sung as well, as the harmonies are lovely.

 

“When the Preacher Gets to Preaching,” written by Rebecca Peck and Christine Degazio, is a fun song that reminds me of the old-time pastors you hear about, the kind who preaches it so straight that the listeners’ hair is parted. Those of us who have been privileged to sit under that kind of sermon totally get this song. Jon Hisey, great vocals! Totally enjoyed this song.

 

“Oh, What a Price,” the last Peck/Jenkins song, is a beautiful ballad that should be picked up by those churches who present an Easter choir performance. Lyrically and melodically, this song catches the enormity and solemnity of the cost of salvation.

 

Chris Allman’s comments on the liner indicate that he understands this quartet and his work on this project confirms it. Amy King and Jon Hisey, your talents are also greatly appreciated. For the rest of the album information, the reader is encouraged to buy a copy for themselves.

 

If you are a fan of Southern gospel music, or just like well done music of any kind, please pick up this album. Thanks so much, Torchmen Quartet, for continuing to raise the bar on your recorded music. Here’s to another 50 years!

Clayton and Scotty Inman: A Triumphant tandem

Father/son duo is in 15th year alongside each other on stage

 

Clayton Inman was your typical baseball dad. He was president of the Sevier County (Tenn.) High School baseball program’s booster club. His son was a left-handed first baseman who appeared to be destined to play at the collegiate level. However, a detour altered that path.

Now, the Inmans have been playing on the same team for the past 15 years. “It’s been awesome,” Clayton emphasizes. “I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”

 

However, for that to happen, Scotty Inman had to don a different type of uniform … trading his jersey and cleats for a coat and tie.

11th Hour experiences memorable first trip to Canada

Written by Staff on August 31, 2017 – 2:25 pm -

11th Hour

11th Hour

11th Hour member, Jaquita Lindsey, talks about the group’s first visit north of the border.

11th Hour had the privilege in July of this year of being part of Canada’s Gospel Music Celebration, held annually in Red Deer, Alta. This event is comparable to our National Quartet Convention that is held in Pigeon Forge, TN.
Many great groups were in attendance for this year’s event, such as the Booth Brothers, Collingsworth family, Mark Trammell Quartet, Greater Vision, Triumphant Quartet and Legacy Five. We also had the opportunity to meet and hear a few Canadian groups.
11th Hour at Red Deer, Alberta

11th Hour at Red Deer, Alberta

Traveling to Canada was a first for Grant (Gibson), Amber (Eppinette) and I. We call Grant our world traveler, having visited about every state and several countries. But Red Deer was a first for us all. The people greeted us warmly and made us feel so special. Many friends came to our product table and wanted to put “faces to the voices they had been hearing on the radio”.

Gerald Wolfe, of Greater Vision, emceed the nightly concerts. He also held one of his Hymn Sings on Friday afternoon. Second Half Quartet sang a few songs to open up the sing. Stan Whitmire graced us with his phenomenal piano skills for the sing-a-long. 11th Hour was asked to sing “Love of God,” which Amber sang better than I had ever heard her. She laughed that it was because Stan was playing for her.
The only fun we had time for was Saturday morning when we spent a little time in downtown Calgary. Mark Trammell Quartet was in charge of Chapel that morning. Since we skipped it to “go have fun”, his guys turned our backdrop upside down and rearranged our product table. We all had a good laugh about it.

Calgary, Alberta

We hope to get invited back in the future to Canada’s Gospel Music Celebration. That trip was memorable for all three of us.

About 11th Hour

(http://11thhourgg.com/bio/, August 31, 2017)…In 2012, 11th Hour signed a recording contract with Crossroads Music Group. “The doors of opportunity that a recording contract opened up were incredible. We had a support that would help

us reach more and more people for the Kingdom,” says Amber. And with that support, 11th Hour has done just that. They’ve had multiple Top 10 hits and been nominated for numerous awards in Southern Gospel music such as Trio of the Year and Album of the Year, while Amber was nominated for Soprano of the Year. In 2014, 11th Hour took home the Sunrise Award at the SGN Scoops Diamond Awards. “It has been such an honor receiving support from people you respect and admire,” shares Amber. “God has so much more in store for us as we travel and bring glory to His name.”There’s so much more work to be done as these three continue to step out in faith. Amber, Grant, and Jaquita, are ready to go wherever the Lord opens doors, singing and proclaiming the good news of Jesus… Read more here.

Erin Stevens gives a tribute to her Mum

Written by Staff on May 11, 2017 – 9:18 am -

Erin Stevens with her mum and dad

Erin Stevens with her mum, Tami, and dad, Rich.

People have the misconception that road life is glamorous. If you’re one of those folks, let me stop you right there. It’s hard. It requires a strong back bone, and a good sense of humor.

My mom grew up with the call of ministry on her life at a very young age. For the past 32 years, in full-time ministry, she has been the picture of grace and poise at my father’s side.

Erin Stevens with her family onstage

The Stevens onstage

So many know her as the eloquent lady on stage, but I know the hours she spends in prayer behind the scenes, booking our family’s dates, and I know the strength she possesses even on the toughest days. Not to mention, she makes the best Chocolate Turtle Cheesecake known to man.

Erin Stevens

I am truly blessed and honored that God handpicked her to be my mum.

About The Stevens Family…The Stevens Family, from Warren, Ohio, has been traveling in music ministry since 1985. Rich, Tami and Erin effectively minister the gospel to people of all ages through a variety of musical styles. They have completed many recordings, which showcase their creative songwriting abilities. They have written songs that have been recorded by artists such as Greater Vision, The Whisnants and The Inspirations… The Stevens Family has a special message and an apparent sense of direction in their ministry. Their music could best be described as Christ-centered and family-oriented. The purpose of their ministry is to offer encouragement and hope through the message of God’s Word in song…(for more click here.)

Sarah Murray: Tribute to Mom

Written by Staff on May 8, 2017 – 7:37 am -

Sarah Murray and her mom

Sarah Murray and her mom, Kelly Edens

As Mother’s Day approaches on May 14, we at SGNScoops would like to share with our readers about the special women in our lives. We know that you will see many of the same attributes in the lady you call Mom. Please write us and let us know what you love about her!

Today we hear from Sarah Murray, one of our new writers, as she explains what is unique about her mom. Sarah is with Bless’d Ministries.

Let’s hear from Sarah!

My momma- Kelly Edens

If I had to sum her up in a few words: Selfless, devoted, Christ-like.
She’s selfless in every aspect. She literally lives to please others and see them succeed. She’s devoted to everything God has given her: Her family, her career, her home, her marriage, but most of all, her walk with Christ.

Sarah Murray

Sarah Murray

My mother is the image of the Proverbs 31 woman. She carries herself with honor, she attends to her family at all times, and she lives a life fearing God yet living and walking in a true love with him.

My momma wears a lot of hats and plays a lot of roles. A lot of people depend on her every single day. However, she takes on every task of life with a pride in the life God has given her and doesn’t let a day go by that she doesn’t share Jesus with someone.

She’s my best friend, my saving grace, and the woman I aspire to be. I’m beyond thankful God created her to be my momma.

To send in your tribute, write to lorraine@sgnscoops.com

Great days for the Hayes

The Hayes Family performs at NQC 2017

The Hayes Family performs at NQC 2017

New generation carries on the family’s musical legacy

By Craig Harris

Several of the group members may look like kids, but the Mylon Hayes Family now consists of four adults. Twin brothers Conner and Bailey recently turned 18. However, the more important aspect for parents Mylon and Wendy Hayes involves the group’s maturity rather than the ages of their three children.

“There is one song we stage (“He Is All I Need”) that the kids sing together,” Mylon Hayes shares. “Wendy and I stand back. The Lord has certainly blessed our kids. The Lord has used them to be an encouragement to a lot of young people.

Mylon and Wendy Hayes

Mylon and Wendy Hayes

“We’re doing a song right now called “We Choose to Stand.” Our pastor called a couple of days ago and said, ‘I want this to be the theme of the youth program of our church. I want our young people to be all in and to take it a step further in their commitment to Jesus.’ Stuff that is happening like that, the Lord is allowing the kids to make an impact on other young people their age.”

The youngest member of the quintet is 14-year-old Kennedy. “Lately, her voice has really matured,” Bailey says of his sister. “It has shown up in her tone. She’s starting to mature with her tones. She holds her part down. She’s been singing the best she’s sung.”

Mylon adds, “We can see a lot of growth in Kennedy over the last year, transitioning from a kid’s voice into more of a mature sound. Just in the last few months, Kennedy has matured on stage and vocally. She’s has come a long way in interpreting the song.”

Kennedy Hayes

Kennedy Hayes

The 14-year-old Kennedy has been on stage full-time since she was eight years old. “In the last year, I’ve branched out more, vocally and in stage performance,” Kennedy explains. “For a little while, we just stood up there and sang. We’ve gotten more used to it. As we’ve made different CDs, my voice has changed. Every CD, I sound different.

“There’s not that many young people out there doing this. It’s a great opportunity to do that with home school. I’ve been doing it all my life. Without music, I don’t know what else I’d be doing.”

What Love Looks Like: Featuring Morgan Easter from Jeff and Sheri Easter

Written by Staff on March 23, 2017 – 1:57 pm -

Morgan Easter

Morgan Easter

By: Fayth D. Lore

She is a woman full of personality, Jesus and talent. With her contagious smile and confident voice, she walks on stages all across the country with her parents right by her side. Kraft Macaroni and Fruity Pebbles pull the highest rankings in her favorite food category. And, her favorite fur baby is her cat, Alfie. This month’s featured artist is a keeper for sure. I’m pleased to get to share with you about Ms. Morgan Easter, as she shares with us what love looks like.

 After six Dove Awards, two career GRAMMY nominations and multiple other accolades, I believe Jeff and Sheri Easter could say that: “Over and over, again and again, God has been faithful.” Both Jeff and Sheri came from a rich heritage of Gospel Music. Thankfully, for us, they have passed on their love for God and music to their three children.

Morgan Easter with parents Jeff and Sheri Easter

Morgan Easter with parents Jeff and Sheri Easter

Morgan is their middle child, and the eldest sister. Jeff and Sheri began their singing career in 1988, just a short time after their marriage. Morgan said that her first time on the road was at 10 days old. Morgan explains, “I’ve always traveled with them and don’t know anything different.” However, she didn’t begin traveling full time in the ministry until her teenage years.

“I did attend public school all 12 years. Our school system, where all of my family has graduated from, worked so well with us. They said as long as I kept my grades up I could travel. It was definitely challenging at times, especially the last few years, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. It gave me a taste of a normal life and because of it I have many lifelong friends that I cherish deeply.

Rob Patz and his Publisher’s Point for March: Find Your Strength

Written by Staff on March 22, 2017 – 10:50 am -

 

Rob Patz

Rob Patz

It is the month of March. Can you believe this year is flying by the way it is? I am excited about March. We have Southern Gospel Weekend coming up, March 23rd through the 25th. If you haven’t made plans already, we want you to be with us in Oxford, Alabama for three great days of Gospel music and over 30 great artists. It is going to be a time that you will not forget!

I want to thank each and everyone of you who have subscribed to my YouTube channel over the last month as we continue to see growth in our effort with One Minute Prayer. I am excited to see what God is going to do with One Minute Prayer.

I’ve been asked why I came up with this idea and I wanted to share a little bit with you right here. One Minute Prayer came out of a time in my life where I needed to meet with God more than just in my normal prayer time and I started asking Him in short increments about what was on my heart. That turned into me setting the timer on my phone for one minute and praying for what God knew was on my heart. To be honest, I continue to pray about that

Rob Patz will be at Southern Gospel Weekend March 23-25

need, but God has lit a fire in my soul to share the idea of One Minute Prayer. So many people that I come in contact with daily are hurting and need to be encouraged, so I know that this is a timely theme.

So that’s a little bit of a background. This month, I want to talk to you about your strength. You know that the Scripture says in Nehemiah 8:10 “The joy of the Lord is your strength.” So many people feel so burdened by life, they feel so heavy with the circumstances that are around them, whether it is their family or their job or their church they feel like things are so overwhelming for them that they no longer have any joy. But Scripture says that the joy of the Lord is our strength which means when things seem overwhelming, when life seems bigger than we can handle, that if we rest in Jesus and in His strength we will find joy.

Rob Patz and soldier. What do you rely on for strength?

Rob Patz and soldier. What do you rely on for strength?

When I started to think about that, it changed my life. I started to realize that joy doesn’t come from this world. I know you understand that and I understand that. I grew up in church and I have heard that my whole life. But there are times where we need to be reminded that the joy of the Lord is our strength too. Not only is He the One to uplift us with His strength, He is the One that will bring us joy in the midst of whatever is weighing us down. So take a minute today and pray about the strength that God is going to give you. I will stand with you and pray this prayer.

Let’s pray this month together for people who need jobs and for people who need changes in their personal relationships with their family and friends. Let’s pray for a revival to come to those that we know. So many times we pray for revival in our churches, but I have really felt the burden lately to start praying that revival will happen in us. Not to the church but in His people.

I love each and everyone of you and I believe God has great things for you to do this month. So go out and do them because the Bible says, “When God is for us, who can be against us?”

And that is this month’s Publishers Point.
