Good Afternoon, Friends!
I'm sorry, this is too good to not share with ya'll!
Our family band's debut project, "Thank You, Lord" is finally available!! To read a blog about the arrival, click here; to purchase your own copy of our CD, click here to go to our store.

My big brother Ben worked with my three youngest siblings, Sam, Jayme, and Caleb to create a demo / commercial of our band's first CD. It is SUPER cute, and will give you a taste of Great Adventure Gospel Band's debut project. FYI: You'll hear me sing the high harmony, play mandolin, fiddle, and piano on select songs.

Poems from the Black Notebook: #1

It's been on my mind for several weeks now to find my little black notebook. I started it last year in the middle of the night when I needed something to write down song ideas and thoughts. It was my constant friend for a while, until I misplaced it. A few days ago, I resolved to find it, as I had several song ideas I wanted to revive. I headed underneath my bed, which, though it has been in worse condition, was slightly unorganized (correction: messy). I struggled with pulling out an overstuffed tub, and when I opened the lid, there it sat, my little black notebook. "Boy, that was easy!" I thought, "Why didn't I do it before?"

I was breezing through it before I sat down at our computer desk, and discovered some neat poems and prayers from a struggling, searching girl. I want to take some time to share them with you, as you might relate to them. They are in no means in perfect prose or rhyme, so please overlook my lack of poetic perfection. So without further ado, here is "Poems from the Black Notebook: #1".

*This particular poem is actually part of a hymn/song I wrote.

"O This is what I ask of Thee, Out of Thy Love and Sympathy:

Make me clay in Thy Sweet Hands, Submit my will to Thy Great Plans.

O Bow my head so I may see, Yea, tis Thy Footsteps leading me.

Give me hope and strength today, Guide me thru this narrow way."

Lacheln, Taylor
