New River News -Dollywood http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/news/new-river-news-dollywood/ http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/news/new-river-news-dollywood/#comments Mon, 06 Oct 2014 15:30:47 +0000 http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/?p=3476 We had a great weekend of wonderful services. Friday night, Bill and Gloria Gaither hosted their hometown Fall Festival, and all of us sang the Glory down! We left Alexandria, Indiana and dead headed straight to Warrior, Alabama for their annual Women’s Conference at 10am! This was one of the best conferences ever. Last night we had an awesome time in Colquitt, Georgia. And…we finally made it to Dollywood. I still get butterflies performing at DW. We are there today and Wednesday. Tuesday night we will be in Nashville, TN performing our nominated song, ‘Revival,’ at the Dove Awards. And through all of this, our bus is having problems!! Rickey has lined up a mechanic to work on it on Tuesday. Thanks for praying BOLD prayers for us!! :)

Love y’all, Karen

Hey From the New England Cruise! http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/news/having-a-great-time/ http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/news/having-a-great-time/#comments Wed, 10 Sep 2014 20:16:00 +0000 http://192.185.185.121/~kpnr/?p=3405 Hey Friends!

We are having such a wonderful time on the Gaither Homecoming Cruise! The concerts at night have been very uplifting and life changing! The places that we’ve been to are absolutely beautiful. Wednesday in Charlottetown is my favorite place so far. We visited a stunning old church from the early 1800’s. All of us held hands and prayed the Lord’s Prayer. Amazing. We experienced our first time ever Olive Oil tasting, ate at a local restaurant, and had Cows ice cream. Wonderful day!! I wish y’all were here!

Got to go…we have five minutes to get back on the boat!

Thanks for your prayers! :)

Love y’all :) ~Karen

Goin’ Cruisin’! http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/news/goin-cruisin/ http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/news/goin-cruisin/#comments Thu, 04 Sep 2014 22:57:16 +0000 http://192.185.185.121/~kpnr/?p=3400 Hey Friends!

ga14cnheader3We are leaving out this week for the Gaither Homecoming New England Cruise and we are EXCITED! Since we are departing from Boston, KPNR decided to go a day early and tour the beautiful city. I have been packing for two weeks now. This is so not me! I usually wait until the last minute! Lol The airlines have made my life so complicated. My bag cannot weigh over 50 pounds. What? Y’all unless a miracle takes place, it “ain’t” going to happen! Rickey has laid the law down on me! So far, I’m still 5 pounds over. So…I guess I will have to carry another bag, maybe? I remember several years ago when we didn’t have a limit to how many bags we could bring on a plane. We were flying to Scotland and London. We had 16 huge bags!! Y’all we looked like The Beverly Hillbillies! And the funniest thing when we arrived in London, instead of paying $300 U.S. for cab service, we took the subway. Oh.My.Goodness! I still get a huge pit in my stomach thinking about getting all of that luggage up the stairs, down the halls, crossing the streets, jumping on the trains, and we had our kids with us! We were nervous wrecks! I’ve GOT to stop right here or I’m going to hyperventilate! Hahahaha!

REDEEMED_DVD_v8Next week, Sept.9, “Redeemed” will be released on DVD. I can’t wait for y’all to see it! Let me know what you think. We really need more films like this in the world. You can pre-order by emailing us (newriver@windstream.net) or by calling our office (706-864-2082) or you can purchase it at selected Christian Bookstores.

 

Caribbean CruiseSo many people have been asking about the winter cruises, Abraham Productions Crystal Caribbean Cruise January 31-February 5 and Templeton Tours Singing At Sea Cruise February 16-21. headerThere is still time to book your cabins but the ships are filling up. Be sure to call today and tell them that KPNR will beyour host! :) We would love for you to go with us.

http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/products-page/music/revival-cd/Well, it is number one again this week with absolutelygospel.com! “Everybody’s Going Through Something” is doing so well right now. The Lord is always faithful to send us the right songs at the right time. Thanks to all of you for requesting it at your local radio stations. Our precious DJ friends are dear to our hearts…thanks for making our jobs much easier in getting the message out.

Please keep us in your prayers especially over the next few days. I’ll tell you all about the cruise when we get back!!

Love y’all! Karen

Video FlimingWe are very excited about a ‘LIVE’ DVD taping September 19 in Goodlettsville, TN at Living to Go Church, 7pm.

This will be the first official DVD recording with Jeff Hawes so we are thrilled! We are praying for the Lord to anoint us in choosing the right songs.

karenpeck-revival-cd‘Everybody’s Going Through Something‘ is number one again this week on the absolutelygospel.com internet charts! PTL We are so thankful to all of you who are calling your local radio stations and requesting it. It is making a big difference. As always, we want to thank our DJ friends for playing our music. We have known each other for so long that we feel like family. It really is a partnership with each other’s ministries. Together we are spreading the message of Hope through Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world. As the song says, “…so if everybody’s going through something. I’d rather go through something with HIM.” It is good to know that we are not alone. Jesus is with us and He cares.

REDEEMED_DVD_v8I’ve been overwhelmed at the response to the movie, Redeemed! Thank y’all for being excited for me. I am so thrilled to have a small acting role in this faith-based film. It will release to DVD on September 9 to selective Christian Bookstores around the country. I will also have some available if you want to pre-order yours from our office. (Be watching for it in our online store.) Here is a link to the trailer and I’m in it! Don’t blink or you will miss it! LOL (http://youtu.be/fl4TFLqR3CY)

 

headerOk y’all, here I go again. We want y’all to go on vacation with us! LOL In February we will be boarding a cruise ship to Cozumel and Grand Cayman Islands. There will be twenty-five Southern Gospel groups and five preachers. The bars and the casinos will be closed. It will be revival on water! There are a few cabins left so be sure to call today and book your cabin. And remember to choose KPNR as your host! Templeton Tours is having a special rate for families. With two adults in a cabin, kids under sixteen are FREE! All you have to pay are the tips and taxes for your kids! (This is a great deal!)

Thanks for all your prayers and support. We love you dearly!

Live and prayers, Karen

Exciting News!! http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/news/exciting-news-3/ http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/news/exciting-news-3/#comments Thu, 21 Aug 2014 21:51:56 +0000 http://192.185.185.121/~kpnr/?p=3376 Hey Y’all!!

b26e61df-939b-4187-ae5f-52c19f2884a9So many wonderful things are happening! KPNR’s latest album, REVIVAL, has garnered four GMA Dove Awards nominations including Song of the Year (Revival), Southern Gospel Performance (Revival), Southern Gospel Song (Revival), and Southern Gospel Album (REVIVAL). We are very passionate about this album and we are praying that it will continue to bless and encourage people to keep moving forward with the Lord. We have been praying for revival all across our country and throughout the world. Now more than ever we need revival. Lord, let it begin in me!

d0228b0d-6f2e-448e-894d-21218ab66dbdIt is official. We now have three seniors and a graduate school student on our bus! Matthew has started his final year with Liberty University online as a Religion Major/History Minor. Jeff Hawes has started grad school majoring in English. Joseph (Susan’s son) loves his senior year so far at Lumpkin County High School. Kari has her last year of homeschooling! (I’ll be honest. I was a little sad ordering the homeschooling books for the last time.) They all work very hard with their schooling. It is amazing how much Susan and I learn from watching them! Well..except when they finish one minute before the deadline!! LOL

f8a49557-652b-4566-80d3-1e66714e56b2Last week after a quick trip to Nashville, I came home with a summer cold. Woke up on Thursday morning with no voice! I went to the doctor, got a shot, came home, and loaded the bus for three days. Susan, Jeff, and Kari did an amazing job trying to cover for me! I told everyone that I was squeaking for Jesus!! LOL It is times like these that the Lord reminds me that He doesn’t doesn’t need my talents. He just needs my obedience to do His will. Except for a nagging cough, I am getting better. Being off for a few days has really helped in resting my voice.

karenpeck-revival-cdOnce again we want to thank our precious DJ friends for playing our latest radio single, Everybody’s going Through Something. It jumped from #32 to #19 on the Singing News Magazine charts. This week it is #1 on the absolutelygospel.com weekly charts. Thanks everyone for calling your local radio station and requesting the song. It really does make a huge difference! We are hoping this song will go to number one, which will be the third #1 on the REVIVAL album along with Revival and Finish Well.

headerFor many years we have had the privilege of performing on the Templeton Singing At Sea Cruise. February 16-21, twenty-five Southern Gospel artists and five preachers will be heading to Cozumel and the Grand Cayman Islands. We would love for KPNR to be your host to what we call “Revival on Water”! This is a great cruise. They close the bars and casinos all week. With two adults in the room, kids under 16 can go FREE! All they have to do is pay the tips and tax fees. It is almost full so call today and book your cabins!! This would be a wonderful, uplifting vacation for your Pastor and his family, Sunday school classes, or simply for someone to get away from the cares of this life and enjoy good Christian fellowship. Y’all, go with us!! You will love it!!

REDEEMED_DVD_v8I will share more later, but the movie ‘Redeemed‘ will be out on DVD September 9!! This is a great faith-based movie for every married couple. Okay y’all, I have a few acting scenes in it. I am so hooked. I want to do it again! LOL Here is the link to the trailer: http://youtu.be/f14TFLqR3CY

 

Be sure to check our schedule and join us in concert. We would love to see you!!

Please keep the prayers going! :)

Love and prayers, Karen

Hey Y’all…Busy, Busy, Busy http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/news/hey-yallbusy-busy-busy/ http://www.karenpeckandnewriver.com/news/hey-yallbusy-busy-busy/#comments Mon, 04 Aug 2014 20:34:05 +0000 http://192.185.185.121/~kpnr/?p=3369 It has been a very busy time for the books combined by a pileKPNR. Last week Susan and I took the kids (along with Jeff) to the beach for one last hooray before school starts. Our husbands were too busy to break away for a couple of days. With the exception of them not being with us the weather, food, and the motel were perfect! Kari and Joseph (Susan’s son) are seniors in High School. Matthew is a senior in college (Liberty online) and Jeff is enrolled in online Grad school. We are so proud of them for bettering their education! It has been an absolute joy having Joseph on the bus with us this summer. Jeff has been a great example to our kids and spends so much time hanging out with them. It is nice having ‘youth’ on our bus! Hopefully they are keeping the rest of us young!! LOL

Everybody's Going Through SomethingOur latest radio song, Everybody’s Going Through Something, is doing very well and debuted at #32!! We are thrilled and thankful that it is connecting with our audience. Seems like now more than ever people are going through such hard times. Let’s face it. As long as we are living on this earth, we will go through things… but it is great knowing that we are not alone. If I am going through ‘stuff’, I would rather go through it with Jesus! Thanks to our precious DJ friends for playing this timely song!!

ga14cnheader3KPNR will be leaving in a few weeks for the New England Cruise with Bill and Gloria Gaither!! If y’all are interested in going, go to www.gaither.com. (Or click photo.)

 

Caribbean CruiseCome and go on vacation with us in January!! There are a few more cabins available on the Abraham Caribbean Cruise on Jan. 31-Feb 5. We are going to Cozumel and Bellize. Be sure to sign up with Karen Peck and New River as your HOSTS! Yay!

We would love to see you! Check our schedule and come on out! :)

Love y’all so much! ~Karen
