Why not post some pictures of our special guest today at Chapel and Live Concert? Christy Nockels might not ring a bell when you hear the name, but when you hear the powerful yet soothing voice it probably comes flooding back to your heart. You might not remember the group Watermark, but when you hear the stories it might remind you of the genuine spirit. Today was a delight to host and spend time with Christy Nockels. She is currently working with the Passion group and helping plant the Passion City Church in Atlanta, Georgia with Chris Tomlin and Louie Giglio. Do those names tickle your fancy? So basically, I am talking BIG SHOT! :)

Last night when they arrived in to Charleston, Christy tweeted “Excited about CSU in the morning, so all you Bucs better wake up and get to chapel! You too Bucky…” So I decided to make sure that Bucky showed up to chapel today.

Following Chapel, local worship leaders had been invited to join us for lunch with Christy and Nathan for some Q & A. I told her later in the night, but she mentioned that there was a point in time when the Lord told her to just be concerned with BEING and not with DOING. Man that just affirmed in my heart what the Lord has been revealing to me. [maybe one day i will have the energy to type all of that out on here] So that was a quick hour, but very encouraging.

The afternoon flew by and then it was time head over to Northwood Baptist Church for the live concert with Christy and Nathan. What a blessing to hear such encouraging songs. I still hate that I did not record the “answering machine” jingle. I always fell weird taking pics and getting autographs from artists because I realize they are just another human being with a platform, but I had to get my picture with her. She is such an encouraging woman of God and I think it is just her presence (in order words the presence of the Holy Spirit). Of course, me being the photographer I got recruited to take some pics of others with her too! :)

And this is the happy ending…

Here is the full video from our trip to Asheville, NC for Fall Break Mission Trip.

Call me weird, but I am one of those people who listens to Two Girls and A Guy on 95sx every morning while getting ready for work. No, I don’t agree with most of the things they say, but I sure do laugh a lot! So when they began to advertise their Two Girls and A Guy Christmas Party with Colbie Caillat my ears perked up! I thought to myself…”I’ve never seen Brooke Ryan or Tanya Brown in person before…I love Colbie Caillat especially at the music farm…this could be a cool Christmas present!” Ching Ching!! Two tickets bought and printed off for me and Savvy to go!

The great thing about venues like this when they bring in someone like Colbie is that they bring in some of those smaller named artist who have big voices that tend to go unnoticed until they are followed up by a bigger name. Kevin Hammond opened for Colbie. He is from Wisconsin and his voice will make you melt to the floor. I could not do anything but stare. Yes! I got judged by Savvy, but I was alright with being punished for that. :) Check him out at

Then Colbie came out and sang pretty much everyone of my favorite songs. I just don’t know why she couldn’t sing the Christmas ones since it is a Christmas party and all. haha! Oh well. I am glad I got to hear Fearless and I Never Told You…two of my favorites from her new CD because they basically tell my hearts story about a guy of the past in my life. Not to underwrite Colbie, but was excited to see that Justin Young was back with her…he is HOT stuff too…musically too! Check Justin out at

And with all that being said… I have an enjoyable evening with my best friend!
