Beyond the Song: Christian Cross Roads sing about “The Blood Line”

Christian Cross Roads

Christian Cross Roads

Jantina de Haan goes Beyond the Song once again to talk to Christian Cross Roads about their single, “Blood Line.” The members of Christian Cross Roads (CCR) are Chris Jones, Christina Lambert, and Amy Mclain. CCR has been together for just a few years. This is their first radio release sent out with Wise Choice Promotions.

Tell us about your release, “The Blood Line.”

Chris Jones says, “The song, “The Blood Line,” is a song that I wrote back about 2000 when I was working as a DJ for WSTS radio and singing solo. When we were looking for songs for (the latest album) “2nd Mile,” we decided to add “The Blood Line.”

How did you come to write about the blood of our Savior, Jesus Christ?

“The idea for the song came from a friend of mine who was the associate pastor at my church,” says Jones. “He said, ‘The line (of) the blood of Jesus is the righteous, red, royal kind.’ I reached (over) and got an offering envelope out of the pew in front of me and in about 10 minutes I believe that God had given me the song, ‘The Blood Line.’

What is the main idea contained within those powerful lyrics?

“It just talks about the blood of Jesus and His sacrifice on the cross being my only way of salvation (and) my only hope for eternity!” Jones says. He adds, “I had no idea way back then that God would use it the way He is in 2019, but I sure am glad that He is. I am also very humbled that anyone likes it and receives a blessing from it.”

Christian Cross Roads can be reached through Facebook or by phone at 843-254-1234.

Mother’s Day thoughts by Selena Day

Written by Staff on May 7, 2019 – 2:16 pm -

Selena Day and Family

Selena Day and her family, as she salutes motherhood and Mother’s Day

Selena Brantley Day celebrates motherhood and Mother’s Day

Being a mother has been the most enormous privilege I have had in my life. It has been a rewarding job but also a tough one; I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.

I made a decision when my daughters were young that I would choose them over a career. I chose motherhood as my career. Motherhood comes in many forms. Some women work a full-time job and then come home and work another full-time job being a mother. I have always admired those women. Those are some tough cookies.

My generation had choices to make, and I decided to stay at home, but honestly, I wasn’t that “Suzie homemaker” mom. Looking back I see how many times I failed. When our girls were still in diapers, I always felt lacking. I was the mom that forgot to put wet wipes in the diaper bag or didn’t bring a toy for my baby to play with. I was that mom that when my baby was being loud, I didn’t leave the room. I know. I hate that mom now.

I just loved being with my girls and playing with them. They have always been a great joy in my life. No one on this earth can cause me the greatest happiness or the most significant pain than them. Any mother will understand that statement. Your children can be perfect, but when they hurt, you hurt.

Chuck Day and Selena Day

Chuck Day and Selena Day

I am so grateful for all the women that have touched my life and been a mother to me when I needed it. I pray that my girls will have those influences in their life as well. I am a flawed human, and I know that I cannot fill every need my girls will have, so I pray that God will send great women into my girls’ lives to share wisdom for them to use.

I had never felt the need to have a mother figure in my life because my own mom was present and there for me when I needed her. When describing my parents, I always say, “My sweet daddy, and my sassy mama.” Not meaning my mother isn’t sweet, but she is the type of woman that if you were to get caught in a catfight, you would want her by your side. She is the strongest woman I know.

When I stand on a stage to speak or when working with women, all the women who have poured themselves into my life come out of me. All the sage wisdom that has been grafted into my soul comes out.

Selena Day

Selena Day

Take a moment and think of all the women that have touched your life….forgive those who have hurt you, bless them and let them go. Cherish those who have nurtured you. Call them up on Mother’s Day and let them know what impact they have had on your life.

Women really are such incredible beings. In our fight to be heard let us not lose our ability to hear; in our struggle to show our strength, let us not forget our gentleness.

Today I celebrate all the women that have taught me through word and action that I can be anything I want to be, that I am more than enough, and that with Christ I CAN DO ALL THINGS!

The Kingdom Heirs claim #1 spot on Billboard Chart with Something Good Volume Two

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on May 7, 2019 – 10:14 am -

The Kingdom Heirs claim #1 spot on Billboard Chart with Something Good Volume Two

The Kingdom Heirs claim #1 spot on Billboard Chart with Something Good Volume Two

Arden, North Carolina  — The Kingdom Heirs’s latest album, Something Good Volume Two, has debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Southern Gospel chart and at #10 on the Top Christian chart.

On this album, The Kingdom Heirs recorded some of their favorite gospel songs, creating a collection of newly-recorded music from one of Southern Gospel’s top quartets. It’s a joyful reminder of all the Lord has done with songs retelling classic Bible stories and others about our own experiences with Christ in everyday life.

“A big thank you to The Kingdom Heirs’ fans for buying the new Something Good Volume Two project. We are excited that it’s our second Billboard #1,” says The Kingdom Heirs’ Kreis French. “The group did a great job, and special thanks to lead singer Arthur Rice for all his hard work.”

The album starts with, “What A Beautiful Day,” a song about longing for the day Christ returns, that stays true to the well-known Happy Goodman Family version.

On the current radio single “The Lovely Name Of Jesus,” Rice takes the lead with Jerry Martin, Loren Harris, and Jeff Chapman, joining him on the chorus. Rice says this song, written by Squire Parsons and originally recorded by The Kingsmen, has energy and sincerity with a message that simply the mention of Jesus can calm tumultuous situations.

Other songs include, “It’s Gonna Be A Good Day,” “That’s How I Know,” “The Love Of God,” “Something To Shout About,” “Run On,” “Thus Saith The Lord” and “When We Sing Around The Eternal Throne.”

The album ends on a joyful high note with “Joshua Fit The Battle of Jericho,” a lively, upbeat instrumental with the award-winning Kingdom Heirs band of Andy Stringfield on piano, Dennis Murphy on drums and French on bass joined by a big band brass section.

The Collingsworth Family Performs at National Day of Prayer Banquet in Washington, D.C.

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on May 6, 2019 – 12:09 pm -

The Collingsworth Family Performs at National Day of Prayer Banquet in Washington, D.C.

The Collingsworth Family Performs at National Day of Prayer Banquet in Washington, D.C.

Nashville, TN The Collingsworth Family had the distinct honor of performing at the Celebration Banquet for the 2019 National Day of Prayer events on April 30th in Washington, D.C. Their performance at the invitation-only banquet, held at the Ronald Reagan International Center, was attended by numerous guests, including many members of the U.S. Congress as well as other high ranking U.S. Government officials.

Phil Collingsworth, Sr. shares, “It was an honor to have been asked by the National Day of Prayer committee to perform for their opening ceremonies this year in Washington, D.C. Our family so enjoyed talking with Dr. James and Shirley Dobson, who have so long been associated with the NDOP (Shirley Dobson was the president for 25 years.) To see that group of politicians and associated government dignitaries call on our Creator and ask for His intervention was an experience of a lifetime for our family. And to enjoy a personal tour of the U.S. Capitol at midnight and to sit in the empty House Chamber and pray aloud for those who would be sitting in those seats the next day was a moment I will never, ever forget.”

Producer and co-founder of StowTown Records, Wayne Haun, was delighted to be able to attend the banquet with The Collingsworth Family. “Several hundred dignitaries had been sitting for more than two hours when The Collingsworth Family took the stage, and the room was literally transformed. Immediately, the breath of fresh air in that room was felt by all of us, and that was reflected by looks of true joy on each and every face. I know The Collingsworth Family was honored to be there to sing, but it was evident that, at that very moment, the roles were reversed. We were all honored by their presence. We have something very special in The Collingsworth Family.”

May 2nd was the National Day of Prayer, which was observed by millions for the 68th year. The National Day of Prayer initiative was passed into law in 1952 under President Harry S. Truman.  Decades later, in 1988, President Ronald Reagan designated the first Thursday in May as the annual observance for the National Day of Prayer. It now includes multiple events during the week, bringing more opportunities for people to gather with the common purpose of interceding for America. You can read more information about the National Day of Prayer HERE.

Beyond the Song: Don Stiles “Three Story House”

Written by Staff on May 5, 2019 – 8:00 am -

Don Stiles

Jantina de Haan goes Beyond the Song once again to talk to Don Stiles, Gospel singer/songwriter/musician, about his release, “Three Story House,” found on his latest CD, Songwriter.

What does this song mean to you? Why did you write these deeply personal lyrics?

Don Stiles tells us: “I was meditating on God’s goodness and awesomeness one morning. I began to think of all the material things people seemed to want to obtain such as houses and lands, etc. While I, myself, had always dreamed of one day owning and driving a Mercedes Benz sports car I quickly remembered what was most important in my life. ‘What I Need’ was the original working title of the song as I wanted to put things in perspective, at least for me. It is a very personal prayer to the Lord. What I need, Lord is one touch from You…What I need, Lord is to hear Your voice…What I need, Lord is to see Your smile…”

Why did you entitle it “Three Story House”?

“‘Three Story House’ became the song’s title because I thought folks would remember it better and as they listened to the message, it would resonate with them,” says Stiles. “I am so honored and thrilled that it is doing so well. May it help put things in perspective for all who listen to it is

Weekend Word with Vonda Armstrong

Written by scoopsnews on May 4, 2019 – 4:53 am -

Philippians 2:3-5 “(3) Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; (4) do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. (5) Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus,”

CS Lewis said it like this: “Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less”.
Let us be a people who do not obsess with our own issues and self-image. May we always strive harder to keep our focus on God.

Until next week, Jesus loves you and so do I!
