Gospel Guitar 101: How To Play Praise Songs On The Guitar

 If you've always wanted to play good old' praise songs on the guitar --- traditional style --- then this is the dvd course for you.

    In this revolutionary 2-hour course, expert guitar instructor Bobby Griffin covers everything from the basics and fundamentals like guitar parts, posture, frets, notes, strings, and strumming to full-sounding praise songs that can be performed in church within weeks, if not DAYS.

    If you're like many, you're probably wondering how a 2-hour course can cover so much ground in such a little time. I'd be thinking the same thing if I were you...

    The power is in the revolutionary 5-part structure we invented and have been sharing with piano players since 2003. Only this time, Bobby has applied the award-winning concept to the guitar.

    You'll learn the 5 parts of praise songs and how to play literally dozens of songs just by knowing these easy-to-learn strategies. Each part literally takes only 20 minutes to teach and once you've mastered them, you'll be well on your way to playing tons of praise songs on your own. Some will master the course in weeks... others in days. The "dedicated few" will even master it in hours. Sounds bogus but that's just how easy the 5-part formula is.

(And with my 365-day money-back guarantee, you can return it back for a full refund if you don't find it to be worth every dime you've invested).

    As long as you're willing to put in the effort, you'll have what it takes to master praise songs you'll even be able to play a live church service (if that's your goal). Now, to be fair, this course doesn't cover the "slow" or "worship" stuff (even though worship music uses the same chords... just in a different way).

    This course focuses solely on uptempo, praise songs (so don't say I promised you how to play all styles... I'm promising you the fast, uptempo "praise song" style). It does ONE things and it does it very well rather than those unstructured, scattered courses you've probably seen in the past with the instructors doing anything and everything off the top of their heads. That's not what this is. If you want a "shed" tape or something like that, kindly close this page. This is full-on instruction from someone who knows what they are doing.

    You'll enjoy exploring the various parts of praise songs and how to bring them to life with various chords like major, minor, dominant, sevenths, ninths, elevenths, thirteenths, and even altered chords. Additionally, you'll learn patterns, chord movements, fill-ins, muting, rhythm, and a host of other techniques. Don't let the "101" in the title fool ya. While it starts off very basic with the fundamentals, it quickly moves to the practical side by teaching you real chords and patterns that are found in real songs.

    While this is a beginners course and will introduce you to the basics and fundamentals, it also covers a lot of ground by revealing how to play full praise songs by the end. You'll be playing hand-clapping, foot-stomping songs like "Bless That Wonderful Name Of Jesus," "This Little Light Of Mine," "Glory Glory, Hallelujah," and more. No doubt, by the end of this course, you'll have over 2 dozen new chords mastered (a whopping 288+ chords if you learn them in all 12 keys) and dozens of patterns to apply to real hand-clapping, foot-stomping songs.

1. The five parts to a praise song and how to recognize them with your ear.
2. Various methods to figure out what type of praise song is being sung.
3. Dozens of chords and voicings to keep your praise songs sounding different each time!
4. The difference between "condensed" praise songs and "full form" praise songs ("A-B" vs
"A-B-C-D" songs)

The same chords, patterns, and praise song structures played in over 100 songs (once you know the structure, you can play tons of these songs

How to stack intervals to create any chord you want: major, minor, dominant, diminished, sevenths, ninths, elevenths, thirteenths, and more!

Fancy movements that you can easily substitute to make your praise songs sound more flavorful. People will think you've been for years when you bust out with these chords!

And much, much more... Here's a video example!

Gospelkeys 350

Dear Gospel Musician,

If you're like most gospel musicians trying to learn the organ, you might be thinking that it's as simple as transferring the same chords and concepts that you know on the piano. Right?

Well, not exactly.

While the concepts of chords and progressions remain the same, how to play and connect between chords and progressions is totally different on the organ.

In fact, I had to learn this the hard way. I thought I could just take all the same chords and voicings I'd play on the piano and transfer them to the organ but for some reason, my chords on the organ would never sound as full as the next musician.

I didn't know how to "think" like an organist. Things that would have been so easy for me to pick up (like finding the right chord inversions, "sliding" my fingers instead of lifting, playing abbreviated chords on my left with extended voicings on my right), I just didn't know because I didn't have an experienced organist to share with me the "ins" and "outs"--- the "do's" and "don'ts."

Fast forward several years later and now I'm playing the piano and organ (...even fiddling around with some guitar) because I was able to skip all the years of mistakes that come with learning a new instrument.

Learn, step-by-step, how to  quickly and easily play praise and worship music on the organ at your own pace...

How to play uptempo praise songs using my award-winning 5-step process and tons of bass lines, right-hand chordal movements, "runs," "licks," and more!

How to incorporate the "third element" into your playing to produce the sound of a full band, especially if you're the only musician!

Discover the secrets to playing hundreds of "call-and-response" hand-clapping praise songs in all 12 keys just by knowing a few well-known organ patterns!

Learn how to play common progressions and turnarounds like the "1-4," "7-3-6," "6-2-5-1," and how to apply them to your favorite congregational songs like "Bless that Wonderful Name of Jesus," "God is a Good God," and more!

An "over-the-shoulder" and "behind-the-foot" look at how to combine the power of the foot pedal, left hand, and right hand and what it takes to play all three of these components in sync.

Over 40 bass runs, chords, progressions, and fill-ins to apply to your organ playing right away! After learning these things in all 12 keys, you'll instantly have over 480 chords to add to your gospel playing toolbox. Click here to order!

Here's a demonstration of what you'll receive in this course!

Never "guess" on the organ again! Model after someone who's "been there" and "done that!"

Discover the simple secrets to effectively using the drawbars, percussions, and settings to obtain the contemporary sound that you desire.

Learn the proper techniques to playing the bass pedals cleanly and smoothly. If you're not familiar with the "toe-heel" technique to double the speed of your bass-walking, then you're missing out!

How to get away with playing advanced "phat" chords (...that are normally used for worship) during high tempo praise songs. The combination of these contemporary chords during a fast praise song is explosive!

Learn the way of the west coast and how to contemporize your praise & devotional songs using "west coast" chords, movements, and runs!

The secrets behind one-note pivots and how just a few little changes to the way you play chords can totally transform your sound on the organ. Remember: The way you approach the organ is not the same as the piano.

Several left-hand/right-hand combinations that can be used interchangeably to create dozens of chordal variations. For example, you can use the left-hand chord from set #1 with the right-hand chord or fill-in from set #3. You'll learn a variety of sets and various things to do on both hands.

How to master 8-note bass lines (traditional) and even modern 16-note connecting bass runs (...this has never been taught before)! This is one of those things you pull out of your bag of tricks after you've repeated a praise song several times. 

Learn how to power up your left hand by forming a variation of the chord you're right hand is playing. This strategy alone will make your praise songs differ from the next musician tremendously. Click here to order:

Back Pocket Band

Back Pocket band is a software that has been on the market for quite a while now but I just want to give you my person review of this product.  It plays tracks with both bass and drums or both. It also plays tracks in all 12 keys and in one of three tempos of slow, medium, or fast. Music styles include Shouting, Praise, and Grooves. They are all apparently individually recorded and provide that “live” playing feel.

Tracks are recorded in MP3 format and are automatically downloaded to your computer once you run the program. You can also stream the files while you are waiting for the initial downloads to complete. 

I really think this is a great idea and I’m really surprised nobody has done this earlier. There is a pretty big demand I think for backtracks in the Gospel music field and I’m glad to see HearandPlay take the lead on this. Whether the backtracks will expand to other musical genres like Neo-Soul or actual Gospel Music Songs remains to be seen. Ultimately it would be cool to have a drum and bass backtrack for popular Gospel songs to practice with. 

I should also add that I previously bought HearandPlay’s Song Robot Software and I can definitely say that HearandPlay does a great job of updating and supporting it’s products. Nowadays you’ll find many software companies who release software products and then leave them to fade away into history after a year or so. This is not so with HearandPlay software products. There have been numerous updates and additional song midi files added to the Song Robot system. I’m confident things will be the same for “Back Pocket Band”.

Here’s more of the features you get:

* It gives you access to over 350 real-sounding backing tracks.
* Practice and live performance files are played in all 12 keys.
* You can choose between speeds: slow, medium, and fast.
* 3 different sections, 9 styles of music, & drums-only option.
* Instant streaming playback and automatic downloading to your system for burning to cd, transfer to ipod, and editing.
* And much more…

P.I.T.C.H Ear Training System

What if you could train your ear right from your computer?

PITCH is a revolutionary system that has been carefully designed with advanced intelligence that knows exactly what questions to ask you based on which exercises you get right and wrong. A learning tool that drills you on notes, scales, chords, intervals, and even allows you to sing and mimic what you hear (using the microphone on your computer or a usb headset mic). In fact, you'll be able to connect a small midi keyboard and answer the questions interactively.

If you struggle with ear-training and need one-on-one training, PITCH is your solution.

I'll tell you right now --- the keys to effective training are repetition, interaction, and feedback!

     Some programs allow you to listen to tapes in the car. Sure enough, there may be repetition. The tape may also pause for you to interact --- but there is no direct feedback. Who's there to really tell you if you're singing or choosing the right note?

     As far as I'm concerned, if your ear is bad when you first start these programs, why should your ear be relied on to determine whether you sang the right note or not? That poses a problem for some musicians.

    Then there's live music teachers. Of course, with a teacher, you'll get interaction and feedback. Will you get repetition, though? Well, perhaps for 15 minutes or so and once a week, unless you have mega bucks to shell out for longer sessions. Also, keep in mind that ear-training might only be a portion of your 30-minute to 1-hour session. So what do you do between your lessons?

Quite frankly, I believe "repetition is the mother of skill." It's just human nature that if you repeat something time and time again (with constructive feedback), you'll get good at it!

    That's where software  like HearandPlayTM P.I.T.C.H. comes in --- that will allow you to pick a lesson, use your mic (if a singing level), connect your keyboard (if an interactive level), and get feedback during each session.

     If you choose the wrong answer, the system tells you immediately and makes you complete more questions to compensate for your wrong answers. If you keep getting wrong answers, the system works with you until your ear develops.

     Because the system is designed with advanced intelligence, you can rely on it to keep giving you questions to strengthen areas you appear to be weak in. That's the beauty of P.I.T.C.H.!

     You can't cheat this system (like you can do with tapes and CDs). Yes, you can skip lessons but you won't get the "MASTERED" stamp of approval unless you complete each lesson in order with a certain amount of consistent correct answers. That means, you'll never get "ahead of yourself" and your chances of becoming frustrated because you've skipped to a section you can't handle will be lessened. It also randomizes the questions so you never get the same exercise more than once.

     With most audio courses, you may start to memorize the order of the questions, therefore minimizing the effectiveness of the sessions after time (which means repetition isn't really effective "REPETITION"). You can also easily put in another tape or CD and skip concepts without really letting them sink in. With P.I.T.C.H., you get true repetition (and the enjoyable type) as you can return to any past lesson for review and get a set of fresh questions in random order, which means an unlimited amount of training.

     ...And because P.I.T.C.H. continues to give you fresh questions in random order, every lesson is unique, even if it takes you 20 rounds to complete each of them!

     All of this is not to say that any of the alternative methods above are ineffective. I've had the privilege to use all of them, personally.

     But we also know that technology tends to change the way we do things. Technology makes processes more efficient and saves us time and money. In this case, it allows you to have your very own ear-training tutor that was strategically built with repetition, interaction, and feedback in mind! Click here to order!

Here's a few of the things you will learn from this particular course:

Discover the power of repetition and how using P.I.T.C.H. will allow you to master melodies, chords, and progressions in a matter of weeks!

What music teachers don't want you to know about ear-training. The keys to self-training at your own pace with no hourly charge.

How to distinctively recognize tones from the major and minor scales.

How to mimic melodies from different scale tones (with a measuring bar that tells you how close you are to the note you're singing).

How to instantly recognize intervals like perfect fourths and fifths. If you know anything about music, you know that an overwhelming majority of songs move in fourths and fifths.

The differences between melodic and harmonic intervals and how to hear the individual notes that make up both.

How to unlock your ear to hear the individual notes of a chord (even the notes in the middle that aren't easily recognizable).

The solfege system: You'll be asked to sing random degrees of a scale (like "DO" or "RE" or "LA"). Learn to effortlessly sing any tone of the scale without a piano.

Learn how to recognize the distance between perfect intervals versus major and minor intervals. It takes mastery of both the perfect and major/minor intervals to play your favorite songs!

Use your own midi keyboard to pick out the right keynotes of melodies, scales, and chords!

Start slow, but end fast by adjusting your speed settings. Master each exercise, then return to past lessons with all-new random questions at a faster speed (intermediate or advanced)!

Learn to recognize other instrument sounds (piano, keyboard, horns, strings, woodwinds, guitar, bass, etc). Over 10 different sounds to choose from!

"How Would YOU Like To Be Trained By One Of The Greatest Gospel Musicians & Producers Alive?"

Millions have heard his work all around the world and covet his style...

And never before Has Jason White, the musician-producer-extraordinaire behind artists like Donnie McClurkin, Judith McAllister, Carlton Pearson, Mary Mary, Daryl Coley, and Richard Smallwood, revealed his personal secrets to anyone...


And now YOU have the opportunity to benefit from his DECADES of hard work, practice, and experience in this revolutionary 4.5 hour dvd course, GospelKeys "Ministry Musician" Volume 1.

If you've ever dreamed of looking over the shoulders of a gospel phenom, now's your chance as Jason White takes you through several hymns and how to contemporize them with "his" flavor, worship songs (from actual albums he's played on), old school shuffles, church "bebop," praise songs, choir music, and of course, shouting music!

Click here to order or keep reading below!

"What If You Could Lock Yourself In A Room And Get 4.5 Hours of Ministry-Focused Instruction From The Man Behind Many Of Your Favorite Gospel Artists?"

"Would That Excite You?

Well, it should! Because this is exactly what GospelKeys Ministry Musician Volume 1 will give you.

You'll get the opportunity to learn flavorful approaches, chords, movements, patterns, "licks & tricks," and real songs from Jason White, but not only that...

You'll learn the music ministry side of things too. This isn't just for someone who wants to steal a bunch of chords and sound good, although you'll get dozens upon dozens of chords and will certainly sound 10 times better after devouring this course. This is deeper than that though.

This is for the musician who truly wants to be used by God to usher in His presence through music. The musician who no longer wants to be a distraction or hindrance to the service but actually be an integral part of the worship experience.

For the musician who acknowledges their ministerial role in the service and is ready to commit 100%... Jason is ready to show you what he's picked up over the years as he's had the privilege to walk closely with prominent pastors like Bishop Charles Blake.

This is a holistic course focusing both on the creative music side and the ministry side. You will not go wrong with it.

If this sounds like a dvd course that you would like to purchase click this link to order and view live samples of the actual course you will receive!

"For The First Time Ever, The Cat Is Out The Bag! Jason White Reveals What It Takes To Become the Ultimate Ministry Musician..."

  • What it takes to truly be a Ministry Musician and how to avoid making some of the errors most church musicians make.
  • How to be admired by both "young" and "old" listeners by learning contemporary patterns with traditional hymns... without sacrificing the melody.
  • Borrow some of Jason's signature moves in worship, praise, shouting music, old school shuffle, "church bebop," hymns, and more! Never before has he sat down and given away his techniques and now you'll have "over-the-shoulder" access to one of the greatest gospel musicians alive!
  • How to take traditional songs everyone knows and alter certain chords to produce your very own flavor and style. In fact, you'll be taken by the hand and shown how to substitute chords in songs like "Oh How I Love Jesus," "To God Be The Glory," and others.
  • How to play some of the same exact licks you've heard Jason execute flawlessly on your favorite albums. I'm talking about records from artists like Richard Smallwood, Kurt Carr, Judith McAllister, West Angeles Church of God In Christ Choir, Daryl Coley, Mary Mary, and others!
  • The mindset of a "Ministry Musician" and how to avoid being a hindrance to your worship service by adhering to 5 simple rules.
  • The keys to accompanying a soloist. Your job as an accompanist is not to lead, it's to support. Learn Jason's improvement strategies when it comes to backing up singers, choirs, and groups!

 "Your Playing Will Never Be The Same"

  • Discover how to use the melody of ANY song to create chord voicings you never thought possible! Sometimes, the craziest chords come from using trial and error to find a chord that has the melody note on top. You'll learn Jason's system for doing this.
  • Connect chords together with unorthodox "slide-ups," "bends," "walk ups," "crossovers," and other techniques that nobody does! (That's why Jason commonly makes up his own names for the little nuances he utilizes in his playing that you can't find taught in your traditional music class).
  • Abolish those same old chords forever! Learn Jason's special voicings for major, minor, dominant, augmented, and various altered chords. You'll be amazed at how simple these voicings are once you know what you're doing!
  • What to do when you have a bass player as opposed to playing solo. You'll learn left hand strategies and how to extend your chords to the right hand.
  • How to incorporate small rhythmical variations into your playing to add extra spice and flavor that will certainly turn heads.
  • Exponentially grow your options on the piano so you never have to play songs the same way, twice! In fact, it was so hard to get Jason to do the same exact "lick" twice because he just doesn't think that way! You'll learn how to have so many options open that you won't remember what you JUST played!

"Let Jason White Show You..."

  • Why less is more and how you can still get a full sound even if your reach isn't as wide as others! Most of the time, it isn't about how many notes you can press down. It's more about the notes you choose to use and where you place them.
  • How to end your songs with style by implementing Jason's hand-crossing arpeggio technique. 
  • How to play what Jason White calls "church bebop," which is a common progression found in many contemporary gospel songs! In fact, you'll find the same exact patterns and voicings he shows you in "Lord Prepare Me to be a Sanctuary," by West Angeles Church Mass Choir (where Jason is the Minister of Music).
  • How to bounce chords from your left hand to your right! Jason is the boss when it comes to striking a chord with his left hand and following up with an extended voicing of the chord with his right hand. You'll learn the secrets behind this coveted style of playing.
  • Take your playing to the next level by learning various "licks," "tricks," and solos that you can play over church progressions... Jason style!
  • Incorporate tritones into your playing like never before! Yes, you've learned them in other courses but Jason takes their usage to a whole new level!
  • Diversify your playing by understanding old school styles like the "church shuffle," the "church walk" and others! You'll find this style of playing in devotional services and old-time songs like "I'm on the Battlefield." What's more, Jason actually takes you through this song using old school church shuffle techniques.
  • Learn chords and voicings that will instantly kick the service into a spirit of worship. These are the same chords Jason and the band use at West Angeles Church of God In Christ to lead the congregation into an atmosphere of worship.
  • Why Disney chords are some of the best worship voicings and how to incorporate them in your playing without becoming a distraction.
  • And much much more!

Here's a break down of each part:

Disc 1: Get an in-depth look at how to play hymns in a contemporary way without sacrificing the melody. From  "To God Be The Glory," to "Oh How I Love Jesus," you'll learn Jason White's way of flipping these hymns, chord by chord!  

Disc 2: In the second part of this course, you'll learn what Jason White calls "church bebop" and the "old school shuffle." Both of these styles are found in tons of choir songs, praise songs, and devotional music like "I'm On the Battlefield."

Disc 3: The third part of the course is all about praise and worship. You'll learn dozens of contemporary chords to play during this part of the service and how to alter the atmosphere of the church by choosing your chords and progressions carefully.

Here's what Jermaine Griggs, the author of the course,
actually has to say about it:

With the NEW Gospel Keys 300 you'll...

"Discover THE five parts to a praise song and how to recognize
them with your ear. Knowing them is one thing and recognizing
is another. By the end of the program, you'll NOT only be able
to recognize the different parts of a praise song, BUT you'll
have several options to consider when playing them (we never
play the same thing over and over ... I will teach you several
different ways to play EACH part)."

"Learn what shorter "A-B" songs are and how they differ from
more extended "A-B-C-D" songs. This is something that hundreds
of gospel musicians still don't know. It frustrates me to hear
a musician playing an "A-B-C-D" praise song when they should be
playing an "A-B" praise song. It is very very very important to
know the differences between the two types. Yes, one is an
extension of the other --- but the extensions make ALL THE
DIFFERENCE." You'll learn just what I'm talking about."

"Learn three methods to figure out what type of praise song
is being sung. I will show you, step-by-step, how to classify
different praise songs. You will also learn how to figure out
when a praise song has transitioned from an "A-B" to an
"A-B-C-D" or from an "A-B-C-D" to an "A-B" praise song. These
are priceless techniques, especially if your church sings a
medley of praise songs, one after the other."

You know... I could really go on and on about this DVD, but due
to the lack of space,  I'm going to have to send you to the
official editorial page so you can check it out for yourself:

...and if you're really serious about taking your piano
playing to the next level and avoiding the most common pitfalls
many musicians fall into, you might want to consider taking
them up on their offer.

The secret to sounding contemporary!

Dear Friend,

If you've always wanted to learn how to play contemporary, urban
gospel music, I've found the perfect resource for you.

It's a course by "Hear & Play" that specializes in giving you
that neo-soul, jazzy, R&B feeling when you play gospel music. It
fuses  all of them together to create a very modern, "urban"

It's hard to explain but they have live video clip samples on
their website so I recommend going through them all. You'll
learn a lot.


Meanwhile, here are a few things it covers:

* How to implement a host of simple tricks that are guaranteed
to instantly add that well-known west coast, "urban" flavor to
your playing ( hear this style on a lot of contemporary
gospel albums)

* Beef up your playing drastically by adding these small little
grace notes, slides, and fill-ins to your  chord transitions.
Jon utilizes this trick at least 80% of the time and he spills
the beans on exactly what to do to "own" it.

* How to master the art of passing chords so that your chord
progressions and songs never sound dull or "predictable." As
you'll learn in the course, the goal is to be unpredictable."
That's when you know you've arrived.

* Learn the ways of the west coast and how to contemporize your
playing by using countless numbers of "phat" chords, movements,
and accidentals!

* How to play tons of opened and closed chords and how to use
them at the right time.

... And much much more!


...for more information.

All the best,

Learn to play the organ step by step here!

Dear Gospel Lover,

Are you someone trying to learn to play those toe-tapping,
foot-stomping, hand-clapping, finger-snapping praise songs
on the organ? If so, keep reading this e-mail because I've
found something that will definitely help you!

The folks over at just sent me an e-mail a
couple days ago telling me about their brand new organ
DVD course.

It takes you step-by-step and over the shoulder through tons
of techniques. I mean, it's filled with loads of information
and professional techniques that any serious musician learning
to play up-tempo praise songs would want to have.

In this new organ DVD course, you'll...

- Discover the simple secrets to effectively using the drawbars,
percussions, and settings to obtain the contemporary sound that
you desire.

Click below for more details

- Learn the way of the west coast and how to contemporize your
praise & devotional songs using "west coast" chords, movements,
and runs!

- Learn how to power up your left hand by forming a variation of
the chord you're right hand is playing. This strategy alone will
make your praise songs differ from the next musician tremendously.

Click below for more details

- Slow motion break-downs of advanced fill-ins and right-hand
chordal movements so that you never miss a single beat!

When I first saw this course, I mean all I could saw was wow!
You don't have to take my word for it though. Just listen to
what this new Gospel Keys 350 has done for my friend Austin
already! (see link below)

(...and if you're also serious about taking your piano
playing to the next level and avoiding the pitfalls that many
musicians fall into, you might want to consider taking them up
on their other "Gospel Keys" courses").


All the best,

Pursuing excellence!

On February 24th of this year, I decided to enroll in Penn Foster Career School in order to receive my Medical Transcription degree. I finally realized that it was time for me to stop accepting where and I am and realize that I could do better. It's great to be thankful for where you are or what you've achieved but always understand that you can do better. God wants his people to be the very best they can be because our success reveals his power, his grace, and his mercy. God doesn't want us to settle and get too comfortable with where we are. This can be fully demonstrated in (Philippians 3:13-14)- Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

God had to let me know that I had begin to accept where I was and had actually begin to think I couldn't do any better. I have two beautiful kids and a wonderful husband and I had become accustomed to being a stay at home wife and mom. All of the dreams I had of gaining my own career had been pushed aside for various reasons. One of those reasons was the fact that I have a disability (serious back and neck problems). Instead of fighting through the pain and continuing to press toward my dream, I just accepted that I couldn't do better. I now realize that I had been playing right into the devils hands all along. No matter what the situation is, we can't forget that the power of God is greater than our circumstances, problems, short-comings, etc. We have to make up our mind to believe all or nothing. 

I have a 9 year old boy and a 5 year old daughter. Everyday I preach to them about the importance of doing their homework and being the best at all they do. I had to admit that I wasn't practicing what I was preaching. How in the world could I tell them to do something I wasn't doing? This was a very bitter pill for me to swallow but I needed to wake up and smell the coffee. God doesn't reveal things like this to us to hurt us, he reveals things like this to us so that we can get it right. Now that I've awaken to the truth, I'm doing all I can to correct my mistake and practice what I preach. Now when my kids are doing their homework, I am doing my homework as well. I'm very excited about graduating from college and starting my new career. I know it's not going to be easy but that's why we have God.

Excellence is something that every Christian should strive for in all that we do. Any successful business man/woman will tell you that they had to strive to be the best before the best was possible. In other words, you have to see it before you see it! Sometimes as Christians we go from one extreme to the next. Either we put our careers and dreams ahead of God and our families or we don't even try to achieve anything. No matter where you are in life you should always desire excellence. I'm not talking about becoming obsessive compulsive but I'm talking about having a healthy desire for excellence in your life. If you work at McDonald's, don't just be good, be the best. If you work at a gas station, be the best EVER!! Striving for excellence in small things can help propel you to excellence in bigger things. 

Remain blessed
