“Best treatment of A MIGHTY FORTRESS my ears have consumed. That arrangement is sensational, John! Way to go, my friend! More, please!”
“I appreciate your stately arrangement of AMAZING GRACE. Others of my favorite arrangers have used rhythms that conflict with my interpretation of AMAZING GRACE. Of course, I know we all express worship differently, but yours is the first that “agrees” with how I play it. Thank you!”
Wow! Reading "Coming Home" was a roller coaster of different emotions! One minute I'm crying, the next I'm laughing, then I find myself on the edge of my seat! Most of all I found it inspiring and filled with love and God's mighty blessings on every page.
