Let’s Give Flowers🌹🌸🌼🌻🌺🌷💐

Written by scoopsnews on April 18, 2019 – 10:12 am -

Have you heard the expression “Give them their flowers while they are still alive”? Often times, when a person dies, we call up a florist and send over flowers. What if you took the time to do that for a person while they live?

Is there someone that has been there for you in a dark hour? Perhaps someone prayed for you or did a kind gesture that you’d like to recognize? Maybe there are several people and not just one.

Do it here. Post their picture, tell us why….Let’s give Flowers! Don’t forget to tag your person or people. Let’s add some positivity to Facebook today! 

Here’s a famous quote about gratitude:

Words to live by…

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

– John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Happy Thursday from SGN Scoops!

Special Edition of “Strictly Southern With Vonda Armstrong” – With Guests , The Hyssongs… Tune in Wednesday 4-10-19

Written by scoopsnews on April 9, 2019 – 7:08 pm -

Join Vonda Armstrong tomorrow, April 10th from 12:00 Noon- 1:oo Pm (CST) for a “special Interview” with The Hyssongs.

The Hyssongs current radio single, “Choose Life” is making a strong statement at radio stations nationwide.

The Hyssongs

The Hyssongs

“Choose Life has three verses that each speak to current events,” Hyssong explains. “The first verse deals with the hot topic of abortion. More recently it is being suggested that a mother can have a child, and after the baby is born the mother and doctor will discuss whether to keep the child or not. This is not a cultural or political issue, it is a biblical issue. The song strongly states, ‘Choose Life.'”

Richard continues, “The second verse deals with the subject of suicide. All of us probably have known people who have contemplated or have even take their own lives. Many are hopeless, yet we know the One who gives us hope. Again, we ‘Choose Life.'”

“The third verse is about accepting or rejecting the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior. We again, ‘Choose Life’ and accept Christ,” concludes Richard.

This song is of extreme personal importance to the Hyssongs. Richard tells us why the song is such an extension of their lives.

“Our daughter was born over ten years ago. She was born with twenty-two tumors in and around her heart. She also had a massive amount of brain tumors a well. After she was born, the doctor said that she would most likely not survive, and if she did, she would never walk or talk. Many would have suggested that it would have been good to abort her, but we chose life! Today she is perfectly normal,” he exalts.

The group chose this song as their radio single because of its timely message.

You can tune in to the show via Facebook live , listen at 91.7 FM, or stream at

Exciting Changes For Hope’s Journey

Written by scoopsnews on April 1, 2019 – 2:43 pm -

Ellisville, Mississippi 4/1/2019 …..Fourteen Years ago, Vonda Easley Armstrong and her daughter, Ashley Easley (Franks), began the ministry of Hope’s Journey. The vision for the group was to spread “Hope” to a lost and dying world. In 2006, Ashley met Josh Franks at The National Quartet Convention and, on December 8th, 2007, they were married and began an exciting ministry together as husband and wife. In regards to Hope’s Journey, Vonda states, “We’ve had some amazing opportunities come our way and have been able to share the stage with many fantastic groups and singers through the years.  We’ve also had our fair share of transition, but with those changes, we have experienced some amazing blessings! Today marks a new beginning for Hope’s Journey.  After much prayer, I am excited to announce a change in direction, both in music and ministry. Over the past 5 months, I have been seeking God for direction for the group since my marriage to Jack Armstrong, owner of The Bibletones, and moving to Mississippi in late October. I am excited to announce that Alicia Estis and Jenny Stork, both from Mississippi, will be joining Hope’s Journey in all singing and speaking engagements. I met Alicia about a year ago and from our first conversation, I knew God had big plans for this young lady.  Her desire to minister and her talent in songwriting and singing simply blew me away.  She and her husband, Marty, own and manage Estis Music Group. God has gifted Marty and Alicia in writing the gospel message in song.  We love the old songs and the new, and we plan to give our audiences a taste of both.  God knows what He is doing in every situation, and I am very blessed to have this family on board with Hope’s Journey. Jenny Stork makes her home in Vancleave, Mississippi. She is strong in harmony and singing the high part, but more importantly, she is strong in her love for the Lord. Please help me welcome Alicia and Jenny to Hope’s Journey.”
