What started as two friends, occasionally playing music together over the years, evolved into an unexpected call to service. During a prayer session at our church, God gave us songs to write and a realization that we were meant to share our time, testimony, and music as a duo.
We are thankful. We pray that this blog becomes an opportunity to personally share with you that which the Lord has shown us. Amen.
Love in Christ,
Joey and Jeanie

jeanie's blog #1: He Told Me and I didn't Listen
He Told me and I didn't
When Joey and I
started our non-profit(Crowns of
Creation Ministries) in 2008 we were consumed with an overflowing of
affirmations from God that we were to prepare ourselves, (in Joey's words) "suit up and show
up" wherever God calls us, and let the Holy Spirit take it from
there.We quickly found that whatever we
think we are preparing for, is NEVER
what we are actually there for and we leave our music ministry outings with
Joey has reminded me many times over the years
that he thinks I should blog about the ministry journey that God has us
on.I am well-intentioned, but kept
placing it on the low end of my busy schedule priority list.To be completely honest, I didn't think
anyone would want to read my wordy thoughts.I am the definition of a woman of many words!But God has, more than once, grabbed my
thoughts to prompt me in the writing direction but, I think - "no, I just
must be mishearing you God - surely you don't mean it!"Well, last night I was struggling to get to
bed and thought, "okay God - you win - I need to write!"It is amazing how relaxed I felt when I
finally was obedient to that call.
So ....it only
took me four-ish years to listen!But
todayI officially begin writing and pray
for the words that will encourage people, will bless the reader, will maybe
find a laugh or two along the way.I
have insecurities about placing my thoughts out for public consumption but I
know God has me covered, even if I stumble.
I will simply call
it Jeanie's blog!Ha!So profound!
Joey and I formed this ministry to be the hands and feet of Jesus.These hands are typing for Him....
