We at SGNScoops.com Think This Is An Awesome Church Here Is The Story
We ordered a Jimmy John’s sub and had it delivered to the church during a Sunday AM service. Why? So we could give the driver (Kaleigh) a very generous tip. How generous you ask? Over $1900!! Why did we do this? Just for the sake of being generous.
The $1900 tip was given by our amazing congregation specifically for the purpose to radically blessing a stranger.
“The generous man [is a source of blessing and] shall be prosperous and enriched, And he who waters will himself be watered [reaping the generosity he has sown].” – Proverbs 11:25

I am fiercely protective of my wife.
Any man would be. With all she’s going through, I only want her to be seen in a good light. So, though I’m only an amateur with a camera, I try to use my lens and words to lift Joey up.
Like any woman, my wife is self-conscious about what cancer has done to her. Who she sees in the mirror these days looks like someone else… not the woman that she feels like she is inside. And it hurts her deeply.
I know that. So, I carefully choose what I share. It would break my heart to have the thousands of ‘before’ photos out there of her looking beautiful and healthy all these years… be replaced in people’s minds and hearts by a single ‘after’ photo of what cancer has done.
She wants to be remembered as a singer of songs. A devoted wife. A loving mother. Not a cancer patient.
And so I have tried to be very careful. To honor her.
But my wife is braver than me.

There’s never an easy way to share difficult news but you all have been a part of so many joys, tears, valleys and triumphs with our family over the years and I wanted to ask for your prayers as we walk through this challenge. My dad, Buck Rambo, has been fighting a private battle with cancer over the last several months. Throughout the diagnosis, doctor’s visits, radiation and chemotherapy, dad has been and remains a fighter. He knows the Great Physician and has experienced healing many times in his life. He is truly an inspiration to us all.
His precious wife Mae is such a kind, loving and faithful caregiver. She and Dad will be coming back home to Nashville from his treatments in Florida at the end of this month. Please believe with us for complete healing, wisdom, strength, favor and everything extra that is necessary to accommodate him at this time.
Please lift up all our family as we walk by faith through this difficult season. Jesus is guiding each step of the way.
Buck Rambo Family

Tribute to Moms and all “Praying Women”
Nashville, TN, Gospel music artist Lindsay Huggins has released the video “Praying Women”. This inspirational video brings to life the story portrayed in her new radio single of the same name.
Viewers of the video will be reminded of the power of prayer. The story is a tribute to our mothers and other women who pray for us. Released in time for Mother’s Day, the video brings to mind these women of faith and how grateful we are for their spiritual support.
When asked about the song and video “Praying Women”, artist Lindsay Huggins responded “I’m so pleased to release the music video for my single ‘Praying Women’. The song was special to me from the moment I heard it, because my mother prayed the prayer of salvation with me on our living room couch.” Huggins concludes “I know her prayers through the years have shaped me, and I want to leave that same legacy.” The song was produced by acclaimed songwriter and producer Jerry Salley, and is found on the newly released project Then Jesus Came.
“Praying Women” was penned by award-winning songwriters Lee Black, Marcia Henry and Kenna Turner West. “I was sick and had called on several of my girlfriends and family to pray. The Lord moved and took care of the problem.” said Henry. “I shared with Lee and Kenna how thankful I was for praying women. Lee started running with it and Kenna and I got excited. It was a memorable day!”
“Lee had the idea to turn the testimony into a song.” said West. “And when Marcia began playing the piano, I think that all three of us could sense that we were part of something very special.” she concluded.
The video was produced by Bryce Free and Paper Taxi Designs. Regarding the video production, Huggins commented, “I was thrilled to have Bryce Free direct and produce this video. I also owe a huge thanks to my very generous friends who volunteered to be in the video. They did a fabulous job and I’m really proud of what we created.”
The video can be found online at https://youtu.be/
