Happy New Year!

Happy New Year Everyone!

I wanted to give you an update on the albums progress as we begin 2015. 

We recorded the bulk of the album at the Nutt House recording studio in October and Tony (the producer) has been mastering it in his studio in Mississippi. We have been polishing each track, re-recording some parts, recording new parts and adding background vocals. It has taken a little longer than we originally planned but we are trying to make the best mix possible. 

We are looking at a projected end edit date of January 15th. Then we will have the mastered tracks pressed into disk and we will send out all the rewards you have so patiently been waiting for. We will also have the calendar open to all of you who have a concert coming your way. Please begin to send us some projected date ideas. (john@johndavidcrowe.com) 

I'm so thankful you have helped us get this far. Thanks for your support! 

God bless you all and have a great New Years!

Hello everyone!

I am so happy to announce the birth of our baby daughter Jovie Alexandra Crowe

Jovie Alexandra Crowe
Jovie Alexandra Crowe

She weighed in at 5lb, 8oz. and is 18 1/2 inches. She is beautiful! She was born Thursday morning, Sept. 11th at 12:09 am. Check out our welcome video here http://vimeo.com/105867580

The doctors moved her due date up several weeks due to some complications Jessica was having. This caused me to reschedule our studio reservations for the project. 

I wanted to update you on our progress. We have reserved the Nutt House Studio in Muscle Shoals Alabama for Monday October 13th through Thursday October 16th.  Jimmy Nutt will be the house engineer. Tony Hooper is producing and he has been organized a superb set of musicians who are going to help bring this project to life. Several seasoned studio musicians with credits on many hit albums are coming in to contribute. 

We are excited about getting this recording finished. God has already opened some big doors with several radio stations here in Alabama. We also have many opportunities before us to go and share this ministry already. I can't wait to see how many people God allows us to share our story and songs with. 

Thank you for partnering with us to reach out to the hurting and discouraged. As we get closer to recording please pray for us. 

If you have any questions about when you can expect rewards or to schedule an event with us please contact me at John@johndavidcrowe.com or contact me through the website www.johndavidcrowe.com

God Bless!

Dear friends, 

I'm so humbled by the generosity and support given to us as we move ahead in this ministry. Thank you so much for your willingness to participate in the plan we feel God has for us. 

Noah passed away two years and three months ago. Since that time in my grief and disappointment, I haven't really asked God for anything "big" with any expectancy that He would say yes. My faith was shaken when Noah passed, and it's been hard to ask Him for anything. 

God has been so patient with me, leading me out of despair and grief. He has made a way for me to know His love and that He still has a purpose for me. 

Months ago when I first started feeling the nudge to start this new chapter in my life, I was so scared. I had no clue what would happen  (if anything)  if I stepped out in faith to follow the desires God had placed in my heart. It was a difficult thing to start asking God for any desires again.

He worked on my heart, sent some amazing people to help me traverse through grief and has been strengthening my faith in Him again. I am thankful that God loves us through the process of walking by faith. 

We have asked and God has answered through your gifts. Now we are stepping into a new season in our life where we will begin to see the vision God placed on our hearts come to pass. We are preparing to go into the studio and make this album and watch God use it to reach the hearts of so many who need the comfort and grace that He gives. We are waiting for God to open the doors of opportunity to speak to the people He is sending us to. This journey is just beginning and we still have a log way to go!

You have been such an important part in making this possible. You are the answer to so many prayers. Thank you for saying yes!

I will be sending you another email about when you can expect your rewards and updates on the progress of the project very soon. 

We love you and thank God for you!

Hello friends!

Let me start by saying how much I appreciate your support of this project. This is a leap of faith for us and God is using you to launch this ministry into it's next season. I am so grateful for your investment. 

This campaign ends on August 19th, (Tuesday evening) at 9:19pm. We have 3 days to pray, pray, pray! 

1) Pray that this campaign will continue to spread out so that those who are hurting and have been damaged by tragedy could hear the story and song and be ministered to in their pain right where they are. 

2) Pray for those who are considering making a pledge that God will lead their hearts. Pray that they will be cheerful givers and that God will provide all of our our needs.

3) Pray for Gods wisdom and guidance as we move forward. We want to stay in the right lane and do what we are called to do. We want to stay faithful to the vision He has placed on our hearts. 

Keep spreading the word through your networks. A lot of support will come if we just introduce the project to some and gently nudge some others : ) 

Some key points to share are 

1) Kickstarter is an all or nothing campaign, so if we do not reach 100% we will not fund the project.

2) We have a very generous donor who has pledged to match all donations given from August 12th forward until we reach 100% funding!

Again, thanks for partnering with us and investing in the lives of the people this ministry will touch.

Hello friends,

Thank you so much for investing in this project! We are grateful for every one of you. 

Today I received an email from a very special couple that would like to match any pledges from this date, 8/12/14, to the end of the campaign up till we've met the goal needed to fund the  project.

For the next 6 days, please help me get the word out to everyone you know and let's inspire others to join us! Our vision and goal is to bring the message of hope, healing and comfort to the brokenhearted and those who have been devastated by tragedy. God is a restorer and comforter and He wants to bring LIFE to those who have walked away from Him in disappointment. 

Copy this link and paste it into your email, Facebook and twitter feeds. This will direct people to the Kickstarter page.
