Well, you have heard me say for a while that I am working on new music, well here it is..... The Gaze LP! This has been a real experience and joy working on this project. I would say that i had the chance to collaborate with a lot of friends on this project. Artist like B.I.C., Sheim Francis, 2Edge, Tiffany Renee, Jeanny Alexandre. I also got to work with some really cool producers: Mac The Doulos, Juice 20/20, Kid Classic and even G-Styles.

I wanted to do a project with the purpose of encouraging you and myself to keep our eyes, our gaze on Christ and the work of the Cross. This was a long journey but I think it was a good one that produced both growth and maturity in me. My hope is that my friends and my fans are still out there and are still souljourning with me.
You can buy The Gaze on my website www.proverbnewsome.com

I am now booking dates for the Summer. See ya soon!

Back 2 School

If you have been following me on Twitter then you know that me and the fam have had an awesome Summer. Hittin the beach, bowling, skating, visiting museums, light houses, learning alot about some of the USA great states and cities, Bush Gardens. It was all capped off with Willow Creek Association Global Conference, and I cannot forget the 2012 Summer Olympic Games!. What a great summer. I really hate to see it end. While I still have a lil Summer left i tend to enjoy it.
going into the new school year it is going to be a exciting year. Pam and I are still on the the grind at UYI. We love what we do and are really blessed to be serving here. The pic you see above was taken at the top of the Jupiter lighthouse after climbing 105 stairs! Enjoy what is left of your Summer.

“Why I Suck at Valentine’s Day”

This is for all my married ministry minded friends, this is my story, this is my song!.... This is a reblog... Thank you J.Fix and enjoy my friends!

Sorry Guys. It’s Valentine’s Day. No, I have no clue what happened to the last five weeks either. We had sooooo much time to figure it out how to make the day special, but the sand has run out of the hourglass. All we have left now is candy from the local Walgreens, a teddy bear from Exxon, and a myriad of excuses. If we only put as much effort into planning for V day as we did scrambling for valid excuses, our legend would be epic. You know what I mean by epic. That idiot friend who makes you look bad because he somehow got a string quartet to play his wedding song at the base of a waterfall last February 14th. I hate that guy….

Of course we have no one to blame but ourselves. We were once that idiot friend, weren’t we. Think about it. There was a time when you pursued your soul mate full on, sparing no expense or detail (whether you lost your man card or not). Then it happened….life. There are a myriad of things to blame it on, but I find that ministry has become a handy scapegoat. It sucks all of your time, money, and energy. Scratch that, it sucks all of your time, doesn’t give you any money, and uses your energy for such quality activities as chubby bunnies. It is a challenge to keep your wife at the top of your priority list, but I know we all agree it needs to happen.

I don’t know about your spouse or girlfriend, but my wife’s top two love languages are Gifts and Quality Time (I blame this on you too Gary Chapman – but that is a topic for another post). As any ministry veteran well knows, the two things that are most scarce are free time and cash – the very elements that are necessary for a successful Valentine’s Day extravaganza. Oh how many times I have failed to meet my wife’s needs in the name of ministry. How many fights we have had because I put more effort into my work and excuses than into listening to her deepest desires (that’s rhetorical dear, don’t answer that in the comments section). You see, and this is where I hope to help all my brothers in arms, I was missing the point…

IT’S THE SMALL (BUT BIG) THINGS: For a woman who loves gifts, an unsolicited presentation of her favorite candy bar means that you care enough about her to remember to get if for her. Words of encouragement are simple – a text message reminding her that she is just as beautiful today as the summer you met her is almost (I said almost) as good as a poem or sonnet. Acts of service – where to start on this one? Make her dinner or wash her car. If you are married, for lord’s sake pick up your underwear and vacuum once in a while.

THE KEY: The key to all of this is simply making sure you do the little things every day that show her she is cherished and most important in your life. Am I good at this?….not at all. It is a constant effort to make sure I am doing the little things. But I tell you what, if I would just focus on the simple things that make her feel special everyday than the pressure of Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be so great – and I wouldn’t be fighting with you for the last Hoops and Yoyo card at CVS. Here’s praying that you have a blessed Valentine’s Day.

P.S. This post has been proofread and approved by my wife.
