We are so honored to have received these awards!

Thank you Radio DJs for playing our songs! 

 Thanks to all of you for requesting them!

 Today our hearts are so grateful for the special awards given to us last night at the Music Awards in Nashville, TN:  

  • Favorite Mixed Group
  • Favorite Fan Award
  • Song of the Year – “On The Banks of the Promised Land”
  • Progressive Song of the Year – “On The Banks of the Promised Land”
  • Susan Unthanks Memorial Award  (I was so surprised and honored to receive this special recognition.  She was a remarkable lady.)

I had the privilege of co-hosting the award show with my sweet friend, Sonya Isaacs Yeary.  No one can say that two blondes can’t co-host an award show!  We actually made it through without giggling the entire night! LOL.  I sincerely want to thank Deon Unthanks and his family for an incredible evening.   

It’s hard to believe that Singing In The Sun is next week!  (April 17-21 – Myrtle Beach, SC.)  This is an event that you will want to attend.  Last year 205 people were saved.  Each night is filled with the very best in Southern Gospel Music and Special Speakers like Dr. David Jeremiah, Dr. Jonathan Falwell, Ricky Skaggs and several others.  There will also be showcases throughout the day.  We’ve also expanded the seating areas, so there are tickets available.  Be sure to log on or call 1-888-238-6858 and order your tickets today!   

Abraham Productions is going on a cruise to the Caribbean! (November 11-17.)  We’ll be leaving from Ft. Lauderdale, FL and sailing to Key West, FL,  Grand Caymen Islands, and Ocho Rios, Jamaica.  KPNR, Jeff & Sheri Easter, Ivan Parker, The Talleys, The Whisnants, The Hoppers, The Harvesters, The Chapelaires and Rev. Jon Bowman will all be there.  We would love for you to sign up with KPNR as your hosts.  For booking information you can go to or call 1-888-495-7828.  The cabins are going fast so be sure to reserve your cabin with a deposit as soon as possible.  They have payment plans if you’d like. 

We want to say a very special “Thanks!” to all of the DJs for playing “Mighty Big God”.  It’s currently #4 and hopefully moving up!  “Thanks everyone!” for calling your local radio station and requesting it.  Sonya Isaacs Yeary and her hubby, Jimmy, wrote the song! 
We sincerely pray that the Lord is blessing your lives and answering your prayers.  He is so faithful.  It is an honor to serve Him.  Please continue to pray for KPNR!  Come and see us when you can. 

 Love you,


Don’t Forget!
