We took it out, dusted it off & revised it for this brand new radio version & everyone seems to love it! We are already seeing an enormous amount of response from this song!”

The ministry of the Ladd Family began more than 35 years ago when John and Violet Ladd felt the call of God on their lives and began to travel singing and preaching the gospel with their children Tommy, Terry, John David, Paul, and Steve. As the children began to grow up they moved into separate ministries as the Lord was leading; Paul sang tenor and played piano for the Steeles and Steve sang tenor for the Anchormen and Gold City. Today’s Ladd Family line-up consists of Paul, his wife Melissa, and Stephanie Jacks-Taylor. As they continue to lift up the mighty name of Jesus, He continues to lift them up.
