"I never set out to write thematic cds or put a mission statement to a record, but one always seems to stand up and makes itself evident even after the recording process has been completed. That's what happened with love will rise. CD's, for me, are typically a collection of songs that happen to be faith expressions. It is an opportunity to share my faith experience and point people towards Jesus through quality art."
"The theme of this CD is the title: LOVE WILL RISE. I am trying to be a balloon.. in the sense that a balloon isn't fully what it is intended to be until it is filled with that which is lighter and less dense than everything else around it. A balloon isn't fully a balloon until it rises. We are the same. Love rises. The Spirit of the Lord rises. So, why don't we go ahead and be what the Lord has always intended us to be... and let ourselves be filled with that which is rising. Love will rise."
"Yes, love will rise in the midst of our rough stuff and struggles. Our troubles won' be taken away, but the Lord will use them to construct us into who he would have us become. Romans 8:32 says....and I paraphrase, Won't he who didnot withhold his own son, but gave him up for us, continue to give us all things? So, I guess EVERYTHING that comes our way (the good, the bad, the smooth, therough, the light, the dark, the easy, the hard) will be used by the Lord. it seems, that many times, the Lord ESPECIALLY uses our struggles to construct us. Yes, He will twist us and turn us and mold us and shape us..through every situation... because love will rise."
