Tim Livingston Announces "More Than Enough" Essay Contest

Tim Livingston Announces “More Than Enough” Essay Contest

Tim Livingston is pleased to announce an Essay/Testimonial Contest in conjunction with his latest radio single, “More Than Enough,” which debuted in the Singing News July chart at #39. The Grand Prize winner will be treated to a live concert by Tim Livingston in their town. Runners-up will receive a digital download of his latest album, “I Just Miss You,” which includes “More Than Enough.” Twenty Five (25) runner-up prizes will be given away.

“More Than Enough,” tells the testimony of a woman in the Bible from 2 Kings, chapter 4. The miracle of the borrowed vessels that were filled with oil as the Prophet Elisha had promised that God would provide. That miracle moment allowed this widow of a preacher to keep her home and bless her sons.

The chorus says, “God is more than enough, greater than I deserve, there is no
way to measure His worth.” Tim states, “I’m sure this message has a personal
connection with Christians that know the only way they have made it through
some specific trials was because of that same GOD that isn’t just
enough-but More Than Enough! I’d love to hear the testimonies!”

Here is how the “More Than Enough” essay/testimony contest works:

In 250 words or less, submit a personal testimony of how God came through
for you-right on time. It could be a healing, salvation, financial, family
or whatever you wish to share. Entries/testimonies should be emailed to:
timlivingston@good-news.org. The first 25 entries received will receive a
complete 12 song copy of Tim’s latest project, “I Just Miss You,” digital
download. The Grand Prize winner will be treated to a Tim Livingston
concert in their hometown*. Tim will travel to your town and give a free
concert at your church or auditorium. The grand prize winner will be
selected by a panel of judges from all entries received.

Essays must be received by Thursday July 16th, 2015 to be eligible for the
contest. The grand prize winner will be announced on Friday, July 31, 2015.

This contest is open to everyone! No purchase necessary, *certain travel

Brumley MusicFest Announces ‘I’ll Fly Away’ Contest Winner

Written by Scoops Staff on April 12, 2010 – 12:28 pm -

Bentonville, AR- Roger Goad of  Lafayette, TN is the winner of a ticket prize package  for the inaugural Brumley MusicFest, taking place May 14-15, 2010 at Bentonville High School in Bentonville, Arkansas.

The contest, sponsored by SGN Scoops and Clarion Hotels, required entrants to share a favorite memory of an Albert E. Brumley song. Mr. Goad’s entry said:

I grew up in a very small country church singing Albert E. Brumley songs and became a fan of his work. I was saved at age 14 and still belong to a small Missionary Baptist church. Two years ago today, March 17th, I collapsed in my bathroom floor and died. I had stopped breathing and already turned blue, according to my wife, who is a registered nurse. I was taken by helicopter to Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville. I came to before I was taken on the helicopter. They all thought I was having a silent heart attack. The nurse on the helicopter stayed right over me during the flight trying to reassure me. I was under oxygen and had two IV’s going. He kept patting my hand and arm and reassuring me. I thought he was sure I was going to die, but my thoughts were that if I died on the flight I just had a head start. I sang low the song ‘I’ll Fly Away.’ He thought I was trying to say something to him, but I said that I was singing. I felt so calm, so assured, so knowing because I remembered that as a 14 year old boy that He Set Me Free.

Mr. Goad will receive two tickets, dinner for two, and hotel accommodations.

Brumley MusicFest will feature Chuck Wagon gang, Mark Bishop, Karen Peck and New River, The Diplomats, Christy Sutherland, Brian Free and Assurance, The Grascals, and more. Information and tickets are available at www.brumleymusicfest.com or by calling 888-462-6718.
