Coming Up For Air

Coming Up For Air

Hey, friends. Another brief check in. I am ALMOST FINISHED with this book. Almost. It’s really fun trying to write a book while moving to another town after living in your old town for 20 years. And by really fun I mean really hard.

I’m kidding. Not complaining at all. I have just been working hard to not give anyone or anything a divided ME. I will keep you posted on how things with the book wrap up..hopefully soon. Then I will be back to my regularly irregular blogging.

A couple of things…

We have a Jesus Saves Live concert this Thursday night in Mechanicsville, VA. We can’t wait. If you are close by, we’d love for you to join us. I’m a little worried for all those in attendance…we are so ready to worship together after canceling our concerts last weekend because of the flood, I am praying that I don’t jump a pew or something. Kidding. Sort of. No, really.

Then, we will be in Charleston, SC Friday – Sunday for the Women of Joy conference. Hope to see many of you there.

OK. Tick tock. I leave town next Thursday, May 20 to drive to Memphis, so I can fly to Grand Rapids, MI for our next Living Proof Live. Then I will fly back to Memphis and drive to Jackson on that Saturday night to be there for my first Sunday on the job (May 23).

In other words, I’m leaving Franklin next Thursday…as in leaving.










Running this race with joy in my heart.

    I can't wait for Grand Rapids next week – I'll be there! And to think I saw you at the SSMT Celebration in January – sort of the beginning – and now again at the final stage your amazing journey.

    I live in Mechanicsville, attend Cool Spring Baptist Church, am a HUGE Travis fan, and Pastor Glen, our worship minister has asked me to work the desk selling CDs – so I won't get my front row seat, but I am really hoping to say a personal hi to Travis! I cannot wait for Thursday! Unleash the power – we'll be jumping pews and shouting Halleluah!

    Travis, can't wait till this weekend in Charleston. This conference was great last year and I am sure this one will be even better…because of you! This will be my fifth time seeing you…my favorite was at St. Pauls Parish a few months ago near me in Hollywood SC. PLEASE if you can will you sing 2000 years my favorite of all your songs. Good luck moving.

    Let's just say here in Wyoming I long to worship with you all. I have moved a few times and it is sad to move away but exciting for a new adventure. And a special shout out to you Angela, my prayers are with you also.

    Wooohoooo Travis!!! We are so excited to have you coming to Cool Spring…we (the entire choir) are ready to see what the Lord has in store for that evening. I know it will be a great time of worship and I hope I don't fall of the risers because I'm grooving and praising too much! Your Sister in Christ, Lisa Owen 🙂

    Can't wait to see/hear you in Charleston SC. I will be travelling with 30 other Sisters from our church (First Baptist in Cary, NC). Good luck with everything going on in your life – God is so good!

    Well, we in Charleston are SO excited you're coming back–especially the Yonges Island ladies.
    We continue to pray for you, your book, your transition. Thankfully we serve a mighty God that can handle it ALL! Amen and Alleluia!!
