New Christmas songs coming soon!

Hi Everyone!
I am currently on a plane enroute to Nashville to do pre-production work. Five new Christmas songs will be added to my existing Christmas cd, "Christmas Everyday". I've been wanting to do this project for a few years, and the opportunity (5 days with nothing to do) came up, so HERE WE GO!

We had a great time with the ladies of The Barn Church in Hereford, TX on Saturday night. They enjoyed lots of visiting, chicken salad sandwiches, praise and worship and the concert. As I share my testimony, many women can relate in their own lives, and, amazingly, the subject was continued by Pastor Guy Walker the next morning at Cowboy Church. Sometimes it makes "the church" UNCOMFORTABLE dealing with "marred" people. Unfortunately, a church house is the last place a hurting person wants to go because they feel condemned and without hope, when THAT'S exactly where they need to be! Don't forget who Jesus talked, walked, ate/hung out with in the three years He was here on earth. I was encouraged by the message. Had lunch with new friends, Todd and Michelle McDaniel as well as my longtime buddy, Mike Stephens.

Sunday night, I sang for Palo Duro Cowboy Church in Canyon, TX. Afterwards, they served hamburgers to the crowd of near 200, and I tell you, I felt so welcomed there. My good friends from The Arena Church of Amarillo, Sammy & Sue Giddeon, along with Red & Virgina came early to visit.

I will be at Guthrie, TX on October 3 & 4, and also Petersburg, TX on the 5th….hope to see you there.

Well, better get off here and look over the songs….please add Christine Deaver to your prayer list…she was a speaker for our Pamper Me last year and cancer has returned in her body.

Thanks for your prayers for my kids as they help with the care of their father.

In Christ,

I had a great time at Triple Cross Cowboy Church in Granbuyr, TX

Hi Everyone!

I had a great time at Triple Cross Cowboy Church in Granbury, TX on Sunday morning, along with Pastor Ray Lane. This is the 3rd time I've been there and the scenery has been different each time…Fairgrounds, smaller "new" building, then, larger "BIG" building….1100 people total for two services!!! It was awesome! THANKS Triple Cross for a wonderful service!!

I left there and went over to Dublin for Double N Cowboy Church….it had rained ALL day and they had a 3rd year anniversary with activities all day planned…well, the activities had to be cancelled but we did have an evening concert. Congratulations to Double N for the wonderful building they have…all in the dry…BUT MOST OF ALL …THANK GOD for the sweet Spirit of the people who were in attendance…over 200…and coming thru the rain and mud.

I am in preparation this week (I have clothes, cds, bills, stacks of this and that…wall to wall) to go to The Barn Church in Hereford on Saturday, then Palo Duro Cowboy Church on Sunday evening. From there, I fly to Nashville to work on some new tracks for my Christmas cd, then back to Denver where I will be doing a cd/book signing with Diana Joy on Saturday, September 26. The Genesis Project benefit will be Sunday at 3pm at the Union Colony Civic Center in Greeley, CO. I get to go with some girlfriends for a bit of R&R for 3 days, then to Guthrie, TX October 3 & 4. If you want to see really good ranching heritage, come to Guthrie. I will be in Petersburg, TX at the Plains Baptist Assembly on Monday night, October 5. Check the itinerary at: Hope to see you there!!!

Ladies are sure getting excited about coming to my hometown of Atoka, OK for our 4th Annual Pamper Me Ladies Conference. It's a blast…you won't want to miss it. Register at:

Thanks for the prayers for Jill..she is coping better and her spirits are high; Mr. Odle is recuperating - was at a farm sale today and sounded good; my kids' dad, Paul, is going for treatment on the 23rd for liver cancer; Kelli Word will have her rotater cuff operation in October. Thanks for your prayers and your prayer requests…you're keeping our prayer team busy, but don't forget to send updates and praise reports!

God bless y'all - have a wonderful week!

Happy Labor Day

Hi Everyone!!
Happy Labor Day…..I absolutely love the crispness in the air this time of year!!

I get the awesome opportunity to watch my son Samuel compete in the calf roping in Elk City this weekend. I enjoyed singing in Hammon, OK at the Community Fellowship Church on Sunday morning. What a beautiful new fellowship hall they have built - I sure enjoyed my time there!!

I made a short trip to south central New York…Owego…a really neat town full of people who are warm, friendly, and inviting. The Rudin Family (I met Terry & Kim this weekend) started the celebration years ago with a birthday party for their dad and it has evolved into a huge celebration of what the farm life used to be like..complete with vintage farm equipment and excellent food. Uncle Ernie and I came in on a beautiful wagon drawn by an awesome pair of Belgium horses and I sang to an overflow crowd…. I believe everyone enjoyed the concert…and I'd love to go back. Thanks to the fantastic group "Mended" who opened the concert with their wonderful talents…to Michael, Cathy & son Michael who allowed me to stay in their home..and Penny Marini who was responsible for getting me this invite and for hosting me. Thanks to all of you!! More pictures will be on the website soon:

I hope to see you in Granbury, TX at Triple Cross Cowboy Church next Sunday morning and then at Double N Cowboy Church in Dublin that night.

Cowboy Church times on RFD tv have changed! Thanks to so many of you who have noticed that we are not in the exact time slots as usual and have let us know. Here are the new times…thank God we got an extra slot! God is so good!!

All times are CST:
Sunday 4:30 p.m.  
Monday 2:30 p.m.
Tuesday 12:30 a.m.
Friday 7:30 am.  

Please be in prayer for Mr. Jim Odle who is our executive producer for Cowboy Church. He had back surgery the end of July and is healing; continue to pray for Jill Van Noy, that the doctors will prescribe the correct medicines for her, the feeling will come back to her limbs and the pain will be gone. Thank you so much.

This week you received a letter concerning my kids' dad, Paul Luchsinger. Even though Paul and I have divorced, I truly want his relationship with Lucchese, E.P. and Samuel to be the best it can be. As the song "Let Go" says, "The longer we hold on, the weaker we become"…..We all need to let go of anything that would weigh us down and hinder us from what God wants for our lives. Thank You for your kind response.

I am going into the studio later this month to record 5 more Christmas songs that will be added to my already existing "Christmas Everyday". I am hoping it will be ready by November 1.

May the Lord continue to guide and direct you in all your ways!!

In Christ,

A full schedule, but so much fun!

Hi Everyone!!
Just want to remind those of you who are local to join us for Cowboy Church at Limestone Gap, Oklahoma, Tuesday night at 6:30 for supper and 7:00 for service. Limestone Gap is 8 miles south of Kiowa on Hwy 69.

Ladies are registering for Pamper Me! I am so excited and we are gonna have a great time!!! Dr. Cindy Martens, who has helped my sister Alice, myself, and our friend Tina Mott TREMENDOUSLY with our health is going to be there doing consultations.

A testimony from Tina Mott: We met Dr. Cindy 8 1/2 years ago. I have a daughter Jordan 13 and son Weston 11 who have Cystic Fibrosis. At that time, the doctors were talking of putting a feeding tube in my son who was 2 1/2 then. A friend told me about Dr. Cindy, and how she had helped her family and friends. So, skeptically I went to meet her. After seeing results in my own health, then I took my kids. My son went from 4th percentile in body weight to the 25th percentile in 4 months. At that point I was sold. Over the last 8 1/2 years my kids have done remarkably well. Dr. Cindy has treated their body according to what it needs, not just what is protocol. Dr. Cindy has now become a family friend. She has been a blessing to our family, and we Thank God for her!!!

There will be instructions on the website soon to set up your consultation with her - space is limited on this - don't delay.

Saturday night I was at the Cowboy Crossroads Church in Okemah, OK, with Barry Ward from Colorado Springs, CO. There were so many people there that I hadn't seen in quite awhile…try some at 26 years. The building was full and it will be shown on RFD tv in about one month.

I will be in Owego, NY for the Rudin's Farm Days September 4; and at Community Fellowship Church in Hammon, OK September 6. In between there, I will swing by the rodeo in Elk City, OK to watch Samuel rope his calf in the rodeo. A full schedule, but so much fun!

Please continue to pray for my kids' dad, Paul. It is confirmed that he has liver cancer.

Lift up Jill Van Noy..she hasn't had much let up of the pain of MS. Pray the doctor will have wisdom; Please remember Kelli Word - torn rotator cuff-operation soon.

Thank you for your support both in prayer, calls, letters, and financially.

God bless you…hope to see you soon!
