Happy Birthday Mom!

Alas, the TGF blogger is behind, behind, behind! Our dear Mom's birthday was October 21st, on which she, once again, turned 29+ years old. :)

Happy (belated) Birthday, Mom!

Mom at MWQA - October 21st, 2011


We were at the Midwest Quartet Convention during Mom's birthday, so unfortunately, there was no cake, no ice cream, and only a handful of cards later that evening. :( But there were plenty of birthday greetings from everyone who found out it was Mom's special day!

The impromptu poster Dad and we kids made for Mom and hung up at our booth.

Here is the most unique birthday greeting Mom received during the convention:

We love you Mom! What would we do without you? ;)

Blessings and Joy in the Journey!

Recorded at "The Cave"...

We are home from a four day "tour" in Iowa. On Thursday we left for Altoona, Iowa and enjoyed our time there for the Midwest Quartet Convention. Lord-willing, we'll post more stories and pictures from the awesome weekend.

But here's something we'll quickly share: Our friends, the Nuckols, came over to our home studio this summer and recorded a song for a music video. Here is the finished result. Didn't Ben do a great job with the audio? (And he also played accordion and upright bass, as well!)

Blessings and Joy in the Journey!

Happy Birthday Dad! Birthday, Dad!

(Or here's Ben's way of introducing Dad and Mom on stage: he was born sometime between 1900 and 2000. :-D )

David (Dad) is:


Dad selected Proverbs 12 in our Bible reading today:

"A good man obtains favor from the LORD,
but a man of evil devices he condemns."
(Proverbs 12:2 ESV)

"No one is established by wickedness,
but the root of the righteous will never be moved."
(Proverbs 12:3 ESV)

"From the fruit of his mouth a man is satisfied with good,
and the work of a man's hand comes back to him."
(Proverbs 12:14 ESV)

"Lying lips are an abomination to the LORD,
but those who act faithfully are his delight."
(Proverbs 12:22 ESV)

We love you Dad and appreciate your guidance for our family! We are grateful for all the invaluable work you do for us and are blessed by your presence.

Blessings and Joy in the Journey with JESUS,

The Garms Family

"The Right Time" Coming Soon!

Great Adventure Gospel Band's second CD coming soon!

The song list for our upcoming Christmas CD.

Ben - our wonderful engineer has worked tirelessly on the project.

This Saturday and Sunday (10/8 - 10/9) found us busy wrapping up the CD. Ben set about mastering the CD on Sunday afternoon with Leesha lending a listening ear.

Taylor working on the graphic design for "The Right Time" on Sunday afternoon.

And while BLT were working on different aspects of the CD, Dad, Mom, and the LAs all contributed to another project: bulletin necklaces! (But more information on that later.)

Yes, we are in the throes of finishing up our first Christmas CD, and are thrilled to be almost done with it!

We decided on the name The Right Time for our Christmas CD, based off of a song which has received positive feedback during our concerts: "At the Right Time". The CD will include many traditional Christmas songs, including (not in any particular order)...
  • "At the Right Time"
  • "The First Noel"
  • "Away in a Manger"
  • "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen"
  • "Dona Nobis Pacem"
  • "Silent Night"
  • "What Child Is This?"
  • "Go Tell It On the Mountain"
  • "Little Drummer Boy"
  • "Angels We Have Heard on High"
  • and also Sam and Jayme's cute recitation of "Jesus and Santa Claus"
There are a few minor details to be completed before we send the CD off to the replicators, but Lord-willing, "The Right Time" will be available for purchase this month! We will keep you all posted on specifics.

Merry Christmas! :)

Blessings and Joy in the Journey!
