New DVD / Cookbook

Hey Friends!

Our new DVD is finally here! We are very excited about this project. A few months ago we went to Daywind Studios and recorded with a live band some of our hits from years past as well as some of our current songs. We had a small intimate live audience including our sweet Mom and step-dad Bill. We hope you will be blessed and will enjoy the uniqueness of this DVD/CD project! If you like it, let us know. We hope to do more of these in the future.

People are getting excited about our Israel trip! July 17-26 will be a trip that will be life changing for all of us. Be sure to sign up today with KPNR as your tour host and join us!! We are thrilled to be partnering with the Isaacs. We love them! All of us are going to make great lasting memories!

We still have a few more cabins available for the February Singing At Sea Cruise and the Music City Show cruise. Check out the brochures and go with us next month! I’m looking forward to the warm weather!

Below is a letter that I wrote about the Abraham Productions cookbook that we are compiling for Singing In The Sun. Be sure to send in your recipe/recipes!

Have a wonderful week!

We are officially on vacation!  KPNR has had such an amazing 25th Anniversary year! Thanks to all of you for your continued prayers and support. We are looking forward to many more wonderful years of ministry!

Last week my refrigerator stopped working! Since I was out of town all week, our secretary Becky emptied it out and gave away all of the frozen foods. The new refrigerator was delivered this week on Monday and I love it! However, it still hasn’t cooled down completely yet. I spent all day on Tuesday cleaning out kitchen drawers. Y’all! It is crazy the stuff that we had accumulated over the past few years! Seriously, who needs 100 pencils?

Susan and I are looking forward to Christmas shopping and spending quality time with our families over the holidays.

Ricky Braddy is heading to Elizabeth City, NC to spend time with his family. During Thanksgiving week, he decoated his parents’ house and Christmas tree.

We are very proud of Kari Gooch and Joseph Jackson for finishing their first semesters of college this week. They will each have one month off before starting back in January.



We are very happy to offer our NEW ‘LIVE’ DVD. (LIVE at Daywind Studios.) $20+s/h. It’s in our online store now for Pre-Orders! We’ll start shipping them at the first of the year!



Also, you can give a gift to yourself and invest in a trip to Israel! We’re going in July! Click one of the images information.


Merry CHRISTmas! 

We love y’all!

Happy Thanksgiving!!

We are very thankful to all of you for your prayers and support. We pray that this Thanksgiving will a wonderful time of love, family, and friendships.

I have already started baking for this week. And yes…I am covered with flour! Lol It doesn’t matter how many times that I bake my favorite carrot cake, it falls every time! I prepare extra icing to fill up the middle. (I am laughing out loud while typing this! Hahaha) Maybe one day I will master my cooking skills! However, I actually love cooking. My Mom and Mother-in-Law are great cooks and excellent mentors. Rickey, Matthew, and Kari usually never complain about my cooking. Bless their hearts, they are just glad to have home cooked meals while not on the road. Susan is also a great cook. She cooks for David and Joseph every day that we are home. We love spending Thanksgiving dinner at our Mom’s house along with our sister, Sandra, and her family. Of course Rickey, the kids, and I enjoy being with his family at his Mom’s house for lunch. Y’all…we eat turkey and dressing twice in one day. It has always been our tradition to have two Thanksgiving meals in one day so we can spend quality time with our families. It really is a lot of fun and we treasure the memories.

Ricky Braddy is spending time with his family in Elizabeth City, NC. We love hearing him reminisce about the holidays at his home in NC. Our bus driver, Tripp King, will be with his family in Dahlonega. He and his wife Natalie have the cutest grandchildren that they absolutely adore. Our secretary, Becky Brown, is looking forward to spending time with her family. (Becky is also the taster (guinea pig) of my cooking. So far she hasn’t gotten sick. Lol)

Well this makes up our bunch. From all of us at KPNR…. may your day be filled with blessings!

We love you!
New River

Roatan, Honduras!

Hey Friends!

14980600_1004375156356683_507402363674767423_nSo much has happened since our last newsletter. First of all, we found out this week that our current radio single, CALLING will be the number one song in the Singing News Magazine for the month of January! This will be a very good way to start off the New Year. Our hearts are so blessed by the kindness of our precious DJ friends for playing our music. Thanks to all of you for calling your local radio stations and requesting our songs. It really does make a huge difference in the charting process. Those of you who know us understand that what we do does not rely on charts and accolades, but it does help us expand our ministry. The charts indicate that we are connecting with the audience. For example…there was a man from Honduras that heard Four Days Late on a local radio station and invited us to perform on the island of Roatan, Honduras. That trip literally changed our lives. In all of the years that we have traveled, we have never been so blessed by an audience as we were from the people of Roatan. They sang along at the top of their lungs as we sang Four Days Late and Special Love. Tears began to flow as the Holy Spirit moved in those services. Needs were met and souls were saved. Thank the Lord for using that radio station to spread the Gospel in Roatan. We hope to travel back there again someday!

Susan and I had our babies twelve days apart. Those babies are now 20 years old! Happy Birthday Joseph Jackson (October 29) and Kari Gooch (November 10). It is amazing how time has flown by. We are loving having Joseph on the bus with us this Fall. He is currently in his second year of college and doing Toccoa Falls Online College this semester. Kari is currently in her second year with Liberty University Online College. It is not easy doing school while traveling on the bus. We are so proud of them for staying with it and persevering!

We are very excited about our Israel trip with The Isaacs next year, July 16-27. Matthew is doing a great job in coordinating our portion of the trip. He is staying in touch with those who are signing up with KPNR as their host. So far one bus is already full including us and The Isaacs! I cannot wait to sing Four Days Late at Lazarus’ tomb! This is definitely one thing on my bucket list! It will be a life time experience and an investment into our spiritual walk with the Lord. We would love for y’all to go with us! This is a great Christmas gift to yourself or to a loved one!

Next February 2017, we will be going on the annual Singing At Sea Cruise and a week later The Music City Show Cruise. We would love for y’all to join KPNR as your tour hosts! This is a great way to enjoy beautiful weather and awesome music.

Many of you have asked about the Abraham Productions Cruise in January 2018. It is now available to start making your reservations. Remember to choose KPNR as your host!

Have an amazing week!
Love y’all,


**Be sure to check out the video of us all singing ‘Special Love’ in Roatan!

Israel 2017!!!

Hey Friends!

It is official. We are going to Israel next year! (July 17-26) Through much prayer we are partnering with the Isaacs for a life changing experience and we are personally inviting you to join us! Below is more information.

Hey friends, this is Karen Peck and New River! It is time to get ready for our Israel trip next year (July 17-26, 2017). We have been tirelessly planning this trip to make this the ultimate experience possible. This is KPNR’s first Israel journey and the Isaacs’ 12th journey to the Holy Land. We are so excited to announce that on this trip we have made it possible to get into Palestine! This means that we will be able to go to Jericho, Bethlehem, and Lazarus’ tomb. Karen has always dreamed of being able to sing Four Days Late at the location where Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead. This is going to be such a special moment for everyone who is a part of this trip since it will be the first time the song has ever been sung at the actual place that it happened! As some of you who have been to Israel before know, not all tours get to visit Palestine and see the site of Christ’s birth place and the walls where Joshua and his men walked around at Jericho. This is just an added bonus as to what we will be seeing throughout the ten-day journey! We will be doing special mini-concerts each day at the sites so we can customize our songs to the locations! This is going to be no ordinary trip; it is an investment into our spiritual lives! We are going to experience the presence of God unlike anything we have ever felt or seen before!

We are trying to make this the most special trip as possible for all that go with us. Over the years, we have praying about the right time to go to the Holy Land and get in the presence of God as we go through His holy places. Through prayers of our team and the prayers of the Isaacs’s team, we believe this is the right time to go! We want you to go with us and experience the awesomeness of God. We have just told you a tiny piece of what all we will be seeing and experiencing. Make sure you sign up with Karen Peck and New River as your HOST so that we can all ride the same bus as we go around Israel! Reserve your place now and when you sign with us, email us so that we can keep up with you over the coming months leading up to our awesome journey to the Holy Land! We want to know you are going with us! So, we thought it would be fun to create a special and exclusive way to communicate with you about this extraordinary, life-changing adventure. After reserving your spot, let us know by sending an email to this address (we set it up just for you!):

Tips to remember when making your reservation:

1. You can contact Inspiration Tours either by phone: 855-890-0674 or online at:
2. Make sure you let them know that KPNR is your HOST! (This will secure your spot on our bus as we travel the Holy Land).
3. Once again, we want to know you are going with us! So, we thought it would be fun to create a special and exclusive way to communicate with you about this extraordinary, life-changing adventure. —After reserving your spot, let us know by sending an email to this address (we set it up just for you!):
