Addison Road Struggles & Victories

Update from Addison Road

We wanted to give each of you a brief update on our current situation:

Ryan, Anniston, and I are completely taken care of. Moms literally showed up at the shows in Las Vegas and Paso Robles California with their babies own clothes for us to have. Likewise, people have given Ryan and I their brand new jeans, shoes, and other things from around the house and dear friends in Las Vegas brought us shopping to replace everything we needed! Family, friends, and loyal blog readers have stepped in to provide for us financially and we have recovered or have the money to recover every single thing that we lost. So, as for the Simmons family, it feels like Christmas over here! More ...

Because of the amazing Christian radio stations across the country, facebook, and twitter the band has been able to get out our story to thousands and have been blessed with so many donations! This blows our mind. Thank you for trusting us with your money and believing in our ministry.

Revive Band Weighs in on Blink

See video

The story behind BLINK by Australia’s Revive: Teach me to number my days...' (Psalm 39:4 & Psalm 90:12)  These are the first lyrics of our new song.  We don't want to get too busy living life that we forget what true life is!  We've done it and seen it so many times. We put our heads down and work so hard to "do something" with our lives.  But we so easily forget important things.  First, that this life is temporary and to invest all we have in this life alone is nearsighted and dangerous.  And secondly we forget that true, abundant, exciting life is found when we walk hand in hand with our God - daily enjoying and trusting Him.  Dave Hanbury, Revive    More ...

Fireflight with the Story Behind Their Song 'Desperate'


 "Desperate is a song about being pushed to the very edge of your strength. It is when you feel so far from hope that it seems like you can't even see God anymore, yet you know in your heart He is the only one that can save you. You don't understand why He hasn't rescued you yet, but you know He's your only chance; and you cry out to Him like you never have before, much like David did in Psalm 28 when he says 'To you I call, O LORD my Rock; do not turn a deaf ear to me. For if you remain silent, I will be like those who have gone down to the pit. More ...

Kutless on the song 'What Faith Can Do'

Kutless--It Is Well

The message behind "What Faith Can Do" can be best depicted by Matthew 17:20 (NKJV), "I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you." Lead singer Jon Micah states, "In difficult times its easy to lose heart, but we must remember the power of the God we serve.  Our faith sets us apart from the rest of the world and through faith we know that amazing things have happened."
