Song of the Day: Allen Levi

By Andrew Peterson

If you’re not familiar with Allen Levi, you should know that this song doesn’t necessarily represent the rest of his music. But then again, maybe it does: it’s a story song, it’s creative, it’s musically excellent (I Read More ›

Westward Ho: Day Ten

By Evie Coates

“East.” I’ve always thought it an uglier word than “west.” “West” has so much promise and has such a moving, refreshing, almost whooshing sound. “East” just sounds flat and whiny. Nonetheless, we have left Read More ›

In light of Russ’s post about his 13 years of marriage, I submit to you “Give it Time,” one of the finest songs about marriage you’ll ever hear.

Westward Ho: Day Six

By Evie Coates

I’m at a total loss as to where to begin. This was a great day, but it began with the not-so-fun farewell to a few family members. We sent Bob, Amy and Wade back to Wyoming, but before we did, and much to Read More ›
