Happy New Year and a Blessed Christmas Season! 

Happy New Year and a Blessed Christmas Season to you! 

Last year was filled with both challenges and hope as my husband continued to battle medical issues but also found new treatments that are working!!! Thank you so much for your prayers. God is so good! 

We are on the road to getting some normalcy back to our lives and routine as he continues to improve. We are really looking forward to what God brings to us in 2018. Here's to new friends, new opportunities and new adventures. 

This Christmas, I feel very very blessed to have been able to come off the road to spend a lot of good quality time with my family. We had so much fun!

Back to Full-time Ministry and Having a Ball! 

This past year was my first year back doing music ministry full-time and WHAT AN AMAZING YEAR! I had an exhausting but incredible Advent tour and I am continuing to fill my calendar for 2018. 

Music Ministry is what I was meant to do and I thank God for giving me the opportunity to share His love with others through music. 

A HUGE 'Thank You' to the churches and events that invited me to come share this past year and to all of you who were able to make it to the concerts. I am so humbled by your encouragement and your generosity and I pray you were blessed by the music. 

 

Here are some pictures from the December Advent Tour 

Wishing you a wonderful and blessed 2018. May God's peace and love surround you this year. 

From my family to yours... 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Happy Thanksgiving! 

I wanted to take a moment and wish all of you a happy and blessed Thanksgiving. We have so much to be thankful for this year... 

...Making great progress with Pete’s medical issues, being surrounded by friends and family who’ve been a huge support, Mac the best dog ever, a full Advent concert schedule, fans who reach out just to say ‘hi”, and most of all a God who loves us so much and pours His graces over our lives each day and takes care of the tiniest details. Grateful! 

Have a happy Thanksgiving and may you be surrounded by those you love. 

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!

Health Update on Pete- Great News! 

Hi Friends, 

I wanted to give you an update on Pete's health. We are so grateful for all of your thoughts and prayers over the past year and a half. Keep them coming. Your prayers are working! God is so good! 

Medical Update on Pete 

Prayers are being answered! Thank you! We’ve seen several new specialists the past couple of months and things seem to be headed in a more positive direction. He has an amazing new jaw doctor in Boise (which is closer than Salt Lake yay!). There is a much clearer path to treatment and Pete is even talking about possibly starting a part-time job January of 2018 (we aren’t sure if that will happen yet, but it is SO good to see him in such a positive mood looking ahead with excitement). 

Pete said in a FB post… “the light at the end of the tunnel is no longer a freight train”. 

I laughed at that but then had to realize that we both have been in a place where we really thought “this is it”… that he would have to deal with this ongoing pain and that it was incurable (short of a miracle which we were definitely holding out for). But great news from several Doc’s who have given us other things to try which seem to be helping. God is GREAT!

Pete and I had a couple of hours after his appointment with the Specialist in St. George last month for my dad to show us around. 

We feel so blessed to have been able to drive through Zion National Park while we were in St. George. My dad gave us a wonderful tour. Pete kind of overdid that day, but it was good to get him out and about enjoying the beautiful scenery. We are looking forward to getting him all healed up so that he can do more stuff like this. 

 

Pete Passed His Licensing Test! 

On Wednesday October 25th, Pete traveled to Boise Idaho to take his Licensing test to complete his Masters in Social Work. He started this process Fall of 2013 and was able to complete the program through Utah State University this past August. The medical struggles have made continuing school very tough. Thanks to your continued prayers and encouragement, he is finished and looking forward to getting back to work when he gets better. I am SO PROUD of this man and so blessed to be his wife. Looking back on all of this, my faith in the power of prayer have increased and I know that God is faithful. He is "my refuge and my fortress" and I will continue to trust His plan. 

I will leave you with a verse from the Bible that Pete has leaned on during his time of suffering this past year and a half. If you are going through hard times, I hope this helps you and gives you peace. 

Psalm 91 

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High 
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. 
2 I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, 
My God, in whom I trust!”
 
3 For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper 
And from the deadly pestilence. 
4 He will cover you with His pinions, 
And under His wings you may seek refuge; 
His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark. 

5 You will not be afraid of the terror by night, 
Or of the arrow that flies by day; 
6 Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness, 
Or of the destruction that lays waste at noon. 
7 A thousand may fall at your side 
And ten thousand at your right hand, 
But it shall not approach you. 
8 You will only look on with your eyes 
And see the recompense of the wicked. 
9 For you have made the Lord, my refuge, 
Even the Most High, your dwelling place. 
10 No evil will befall you, 
Nor will any plague come near your tent. 

11 For He will give His angels charge concerning you, 
To guard you in all your ways. 
12 They will bear you up in their hands, 
That you do not strike your foot against a stone. 
13 You will tread upon the lion and cobra, 
The young lion and the serpent you will trample down. 

14 “Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him; 
I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name. 
15 “He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; 
I will be with him in trouble; 
I will rescue him and honor him. 
16 “With a long life I will satisfy him 
And let him see My salvation.” 

Blessings to you!

Reflection from Jaime PLUS Couple of open Advent Concert Dates Left 

Hi Friends, 

Fall is upon us, although snow did hit parts of the country these past few weeks. I’m choosing to look at it as a blessing because it managed to put fires out across the Northwest. Prayers answered, thank You Lord! You are faithful! Fall is my husband’s favorite time of year. Fall colors, temps drop, and Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING arrives on the shelves. I like it too, especially living in Idaho. Such brilliant beautiful colors surround us.

Reflection from Jaime 

It’s a blessing to have this fall beauty amidst the tragedies we’ve seen this past month. Hurricane’s,  Earthquakes and Fires devastating communities, the horrible event in Las Vegas and the hateful words being flung around social media. What a mess. It’s so easy to get discouraged and anxious about everything going on around us. And it even easier to get sucked into the negativity that gets flung around television and social media which is why I feel blessed that God is still speaking to us and trying to get our attention during this time. The 2nd reading at Mass this past weekend was Philippians 4:6-9 and it was perfect timing. 

6. Brothers and sisters: Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, 
by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. 

7. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding 
will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. 

8. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, 
whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, 
if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, 
think about these things. 

9. Keep on doing what you have learned and received and heard and seen in me. 
Then the God of peace will be with you. 

Me?... get anxious? Boy, I really needed this verse and it’s amazing when God sends us what we need right when we need it. God wants to give us that peace that surpasses all understanding. I long for that peace, don’t you? And I LOVE the reminder in verse 8 because so often we fix our eyes on things that are not pure, not honorable, not lovely or gracious. No wonder we are anxious and angry and find it so easy to say hateful things to or about others. I know that until I can really grasp and to put into practice what this passage is saying, I will continue to be anxious, longing for peace. 

 

Viruses (yes… 2) Knocked me Down 

I have been pretty ill the past couple of months and have seen more Dr.’s and taken more pills and supplements than I ever care to see or take again. I am finally starting to feel human after having 2 viruses hit me one right after the other. I can’t tell you how excited I am to be able to get back to my daily routine and get busy again. Unfortunately, because of the illnesses I had to postpone 2 concert dates this past month. But God is always 1000 steps ahead of us and the blessings that have come out of all of this only remind me even more that we serve an Awesome God! I am so amazed at how God orchestrates everything, taking what I feel is a complete "fail" and makes something wonderful out of it (in not just my life but in others lives as well).
