Happy Birthday, Jack!

Happy Birthday, Jack!

Today is our firstborn son’s birthday. Jackson Travis Cottrell is 14 today. What a joy it is to be your dad, Jack. Your mom and I are so crazy about you. Completely eaten up with seeing to it that you walk in everything the Lord has for your life.

We pray the Lord will grant you wisdom, purity, strength, courage, truthfulness, graciousness and peace every day of your life. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SON!

    Hi Travis I was in Fresno this past weekend. You guys were awesome! What was the rain song title? I loved it and would like to download if it’s available.
    Thank you

      That song was called All My Fountains and you can find it on the album called “Passion – Here for You” released just this past March! That is an awesome song isn’t it? Wasn’t that conference w/Beth awesome? Have had many opp’s to use #1 of the “8 to wait” list!! Patient in the wait………come on and Rain Down On Us Lord!

    Hello Travis,
    I was also at the conference in Fresno this weekend (from Clovis Hills Community Church – the “I heart my church t-shirt” group.) You and the LP Praise Team were phenomenal and I was SO thankful to get that time in worship with you and the other thousands of women in attendance. I serve as a vocalist on our worship team and it was SO great to be able to sing at the top of my lungs and not even be able to hear my own voice among the crowd! I cried with joy. Thank you for serving in ministry as you do and for leading us in worhsip this weekend.

    HELLO! I heard your music for the first time this weekend in Clovis,Ca @ the Save Mart Center, April 1 & 2. Have to tell you I loved EVERY song you and your Praise Team performed. Can you tell us if you will be releasing a CD of the EXACT songs for that conference?? I hope so. I was lucky enough to go to the conference with my sister,mom, and a few friends from church…:) Loved all the beautiful voices of your team…was deeply moved by the music and their message…. God has blessed you and thanks for sharing your gifts with us.
    God bless you and your family!

    From the looks of the top photo, it seems as if you were approximately 15 when Jack was born.

      Ain’t it the truth, Joy? 🙂

    Happy birthday Jack! God has mighty things in store for you – why else would he have given you such great parents to help you get there!

    And I agree with Joy – you were what, fourteen yourself when Jack was born!? How is it that he looks 14 going on 21 in his current picture and you look like you’ve barely graduated high school when he was a newborn!? I’m noticing that in my own children these days…I see their 20 year old faces in the little girls they are now and yet when I look at myself just a few years ago when they were born, I look like a child myself!
