Bowen's Heart

Many of you continue to ask about "baby Bowen" - the little boy Matt & Sarah Hammit (Matt is the lead singer of Sanctus Real) are expecting in about 6 weeks. Bowen has been diagnosed with a serious heart defect known as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome.  Bowen will need to have several heart surgeries the first couple years of his life, including one within the first five days.  Continue to pray for Matt, Sarah and their entire family.  In the midst of all the uncertainty and this difficult time, the Hammitt's are seeing God at work every day and are thankful for all of your support and prayers.

You can reach out to the family and follow their journey, by checking out a special blog Matt & Sarah have set up (here)

To hear our interview with Matt, including his update on Bowen, Sanctus Real "onesies" and his recent experience in Chic Fil A, check out the links below the picture.

David Crowder

It's always a good time when David Crowder comes by and today's visit did not disappoint.  David debuted his new song "Oh, Happiness" from his "Church Music" album and, among other things, discussed one of his band's favorite pastimes - spotting random celebrities while on the road (hear the hilarious audio here).  Check out the picture below of David hugging Richard Simmons. :-)
