Spirit 92.9 and Best Life Ministries hosted Rebecca St. James at the Calvary Community Church on Saturday, October 28th. Dawn and Kathy announced the bands starting. The Dave Herring Band led the attendees in worship before Rebecca came out and sang for us.

Rebecca is really amazing and has a beautiful voice and a fantastic testimony. IMG_7281 copyIMG_7332 copyIMG_7340 copyIMG_7360 copy

Two of Rebecca’s brother’s were on the stage too. The guy on the right is one of her brother’s and the guy playing the cajon in the pictures is her other brother. They are in their own band called For King and Country.

Rebecca shared about praying for her future husband and keeping herself pure for him. It is a pretty cool message. She also let us know about her courtship with her now husband Jacob.They have been married for 5 or 6 months now. He  just happened to be sitting in on her set for a few days so she introduced him. She couldn’t help but run over to him and give him a quick hug and kiss before singing her Wait for Me song. IMG_7482 copyIMG_7506 copy

Dawn Williams sat with Rebecca and led us in a Q&A session where the audience could ask whatever questions they wanted to Rebecca.

The concert ended well with a rendition of Blessed be the Name.IMG_7714 copy

When all was said and done, Clarisse and I headed for home. My daughter loved attending her first concert with me. I am happy she was able to go with too and see what they are like.

Scenes from a run down property in Northern MN (pt 2 of 2)

I had taken my cousin’s grad pictures in Twin Valley, MN. We had found this sad piece of property when we were driving around finding places for a photo shoot. I think the shoot went really well there. After we were all done my cousins wandered around a bit and I took pictures. Nothing like a fun walk about to inspire one’s photography!
