Comment

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened." - Matt. 7:7-8

Above is my favorite passage from the Bible.  It is a promise from God to be faithful, a promise that He will answer prayer.  I pray this prayer before I ask for anything serious from God.  I prayed it for this Kickstarter campaign!

Beyond words is truly how I feel.  You are all responsible for making my dream of a Catholic record a total reality!  Every single one of you have touched my heart with your generosity and support.  I can FINALLY get to work on focusing entirely on this album and flying to the studio to record it!  I am on cloud nine right now!  Thank you everyone!!!!!!

We aren't finished yet however!  We have until 7pm tomorrow CST, and there may be many others who will back this project before then.  It will be interesting to see where we end at.  Hopefully we'll get to 150 backers :)

Usually a campaign will set stretch goals once the goal is reached to encourage further pledging and offer fun extras for backers.  Like I said on the main page I would love to hire some session players to bring stringed instruments(cello, violin, possibly upright bass) to a few songs!  If we reach the goal of $13,500 we will make that happen!

I want to thank my wife Kari for everything that she has done in this campaign!  She has put up with me staying up till all hours of the night emailing, posting, and working on it.  She has been an awesome advocate and partner in this whole process and has done so much to get this project seen and to make it look good.  I love you Kare, THANK YOU!  You are the best! 

God be with you all!  Thanks for making this year the most exciting one I have had yet!  With that I say goodnight.. I certainly can use the sleep :)
