    THE GUIDEBOOK: The “Bundle” plus a free download of what I’m calling the “guidebook” for now. Part devotional, part companion piece, part “deluxe” liner notes, it will include the story and biblical context behind each song, the scripture passages used, and a short explanation of how this song has affected me personally. The guidebook may also include photos from recording and really cool extras that I haven’t even thought of yet!

    THE AUTOGRAPH: Everything in the “Bigger Bundle” package, plus a frameable, 8x8 album cover or photograph signed by producer Josh Moore, the musicians that will be a part of the album (they’ll be cool and there may be some surprise special guests!), and me (but I’ll probably be the least cool person signing it!). You’ll also be invited to a really fun CD release celebration party (see "The Party" package below).

    THE PARTY: Everything in the “Bigger Bundle” package, plus an invitation to an intimate CD release celebration party (location TBD, but it will probably be in Tyler, Dallas, or Houston), which will be almost exclusively for Kickstarter backers that give at this level or more.

    THE SHARE THE STORY, PART I: Everything in “The Party” package for you, plus 5 physical copies of the album and a free download of the “guidebook” sent to a ministry or missionary of your choosing, for them to give away as they please. I will even happily ship the CD’s overseas. The heart behind this is that ministries or missionaries would be able to share “the Story” in a fresh, creative, and hopefully non-threatening way. If you don't know anyone to send this to, I have some great missionaries in mind!

    THE HOUSE SHOW: Everything in "The Party” package, plus an intimate house show for you and your friends. At the house show, you and your friends will be able to sit and listen to the story of scripture through the songs that I share, and I’ll be sure to include context and stories behind each song to help connect the dots. The new album will also be “name-your-own-price”, so everyone will be able to walk out of your home with the new album (or two!) in hand.... P.S. I’m willing to go anywhere inside the continental US, but we would have to get creative regarding travel and lodging costs if it’s further than 250 miles away from Tyler, TX.

    SHARE THE STORY, PART II: Everything in "The Party" plus I will come play a show at your church, youth group, ministry, school chapel, or organization! At each show, I will share the story of scripture through song, being sure to include the biblical context and stories behind each song so that I communicate the full picture, and I will tailor it to the specific audience. P.S. - I’m willing to go anywhere inside the continental US, but we would have to get creative regarding travel and lodging costs if it’s further than 250 miles away from Tyler, TX.

    THE SONG: Everything in “The House Show” and "Share the Story, Part I", plus I will write a brand new song just for you, based on a scripture passage/story of your choosing. Before I write the song, I will talk with you specifically about the passage and what it means to you so that I can make the song as personal as possible. I can also write this song for your child, your friend, etc. and you could give it to them as a gift. You will receive a demo of this song and I will also upload a video to YouTube for you to share with your friends if you'd like. If I ever record the song, I will thank you in the liner notes for your inspiration!

    THE DOUBLE: Everything in "The Song" but DOUBLED (at least kind of). I will write one additional song for you from a scripture passage/story of your choosing AND give you an additional House Show for you to give away to someone else. So, you’ll get not just one - but TWO - songs. And you’ll get not just one - but TWO - house shows. See? Doubled! I'm also happy to work with you to customize a reward package just for you.

    THE NAMESAKE: Everything in “The Double” plus we will name our next child after you. No, seriously. Well, maybe not, but we will strongly consider it. Ok, but seriously... If you back at this level, you will almost-cover the cost of recording, mixing, and mastering one full song, so we will be forever grateful. So, this is what we'll do: we'll turn "The Double" into "The Triple" (i.e. 3 house shows, 3 songs, plus everything else), I'll throw in a "Share the Story, Part I", and I will specifically thank you in the liner notes (if you want). I'm also happy to work with you to customize a reward package just for you.
