I trust this finds you doing well and enjoying the fall weather.
This summer I spent time with my family in Michigan. It did not go without challenges as my wife's twin brother passed away. John was a very kind man who always placed others ahead of himself. He loved Jesus and we rest assured that we will see him again. However, today, we miss him.
This month comes with two birthdays in our family. Candace just turned 17 (wow) and Aaron is about to be 8. We are loving the volleyball and soccer games! And there’s always a lot of music going on around the house. Candace is writing some very cool songs. Aaron and Olivia never stop singing. Non stop around the Kuehn household. And Julie stays busy keeping everything together around here!
I am excited about the release of Gateways newest CD titled “Forever Yours”. Last year we released our first devotional CD called "Rivers" (Everything Lives in the River) One of the songs on the project was titled "Song of Heaven". It seemed like the song had something on it and was added to a Gateway Devotional project the beginning of this year. One weekend it was used in a weekend service led by Thomas Miller with the backup of the Gateway Choir. The chorus worked real well, but it did not have any verses. I had to rewrite the song just a bit to make it more congregational and included two verses. We retitled the song "The Whole Earth" and it was recorded on the Gateway live recording. It is a great CD and I hope you’ll go to iTunes and download it. I’ve been blessed listening to the new version of the song.
We just completed a trip to California where we ministered at the National Aglow conference. Always a special time and this year was no exception with some incredible moments. We've also been enjoying our monthly Night of Worship at the Adriatica chapel here in McKinney. We gather the first Tuesday of every month and you are always welcome. A real intimate time of worship! Ty on the Cello and Rachel singing and leading with me make for a really cool time.
On another note, We are excited to announce the release of our second devotional CD titled "Presence". Just completed and available for the first time, it is a collection of new songs and some classics mixed together and sure to bless. It has been in my heart to release one of these projects every year. Grab a few copies and give them out to some friends. Christmas is just around the corner so they would make for some great stocking stuffers as well!
When I record the music God gives me, it is never done with the intention of selling CD’s but rather releasing a sound and the heart of God into the earth. I put my all into these projects. We hear so many great testimonies from people out there. Let us know how the music blesses you!
May God bless you and yours richly,
