My time in Cheyenne, Loveland, and Greeley went really well!

Hi Everybody!

I'm currently on a plane enroute to the GREAT Northwest! Our annual concert in the Antelope Community Church yard is coming up this Sunday at 4pm. Mud Springs Gospel Band will be performing and it's always a VERY good time….see you there!

I was in Moravia, Iowa on Tuesday night doing a benefit for New Hope Counseling Center of Centerville, IA. Thanks to the Nazarene church there who hosted the event and for all of you who attended and supported this wonderful center. Thanks to Roy & Vicki Spurgeon and Linda Ballanger for all your support!

My time in Cheyenne, Loveland, and Greeley went really well! We had a record crowd at Cheyenne Frontier Days! Thanks to Stran Smith (2009 PRCA Champion Calf Roper) who shared testimony, Gabe Pennell (who shared a stirring patriotic poem), Ted Wiese (Rockin W Rodeo Ministries) who mc'd, Keenie Word (who has a BRAND new cd out), and Russ Weaver (pastor of Shepherd's Valley Cowboy Church) who shared the Word of God. The Lord truly showed up and I believe it was one of the best services we've had at Cheyenne. Go to the website and you can see lots of pictures from this service:

The added blessing to me was to sing the Star Spangled Banner at the rodeo….what a thrill!!

SNIG (Sunday nights in Greeley) got togeher with First Baptist Cheyenne, and The Church of Loveland and brought me in for 3 separate nights there. Thanks to those who hosted us (Bill and Ila McIlvain) and all those who helped to organize the concerts. I was so blessed to see the Union Colony Civic Center used for the first time for SNIG and seat approximately 1400 people. What a blessing! Thanks to all who worked so hard to put these concerts on…especially George Townsend. The Caballero Family was there to sing and WOW! what a great performance! They have a new cd!!

Please be in prayer for Cowboy Church, RFDtv supporter/producer Jim Odle who underwent back surgery in Fort Collins last Friday. We all on Cowboy Church appreciate the support you have been giving us. We have expressed a need for financial support and you have responded…THANK YOU!!

We were able to meet Taylor Swift before her show in Cheyenne….what a warm, kind, bubbly young lady she is! Congratulations to her and her family (mom & brother were there also) for her success.

There are some more surgeries in the future for my kids' dad, Paul Luchsinger. Right now he is at his home in Mobeetie, TX and I believe, doing as well as expected. I really appreciate your prayers for E.P., Lucchese, and Samuel, and I know Paul appreciates your calls and prayers.

I will be in downtown Ada, Oklahoma August 6 at the newly remodeled McSwain Theatre- hope to see you there!! You can register for Pamper Me Ladies Retreat at

I was talking to a couple on the plane just now about a friend who is very highly educated, beautiful, and talented, and in a very abusive relationship. They wondered how such a woman could be reduced to believing she is not beautiful, not smart and totally unable to remove herself from that situation. I told them they were re-telling my story. Abuse is crippling. I share in my concerts how horrible words are….that we should be very careful to share blessings - not cursings with those around us….AND we can clean up our own air space by doing just that….it's not just about cussing…it's refraining from hurtful words that cause a person to think less of themself and not how God views them. It's showering a blessing out in our words to encourage and edify those who come in contact with us. Remember, you are an influence….use it for good.

God bless you,and Happy Trails!
