NEW YEAR’S REFLECTIONS

Reflection often gives rise to sighing, some for joy, some for sadness. Perhaps like us, you find yourself breathing a bit heavily as this year winds down. Whatever your year may have been like, the close of a year provides us all with an opportunity to evaluate where we’ve placed our allegiance. It helps us clear off the table and ask what we might like to devote our heart and soul to in the next year, and how we might…

THE YEAR IN REVIEW FROM THE FOX BROTHERS

It has been an incredible year of blessings for The Fox Brothers. The group spent the year, criss-crossing the United States, performing at fairs; festivals; and other family-oriented venues.

BECOMING SOMETHING GREAT FOR GOD – Nothing

I moved to Nashville in 1993 believing that in about 3-6 months I would have a record deal and would be shaking up the planet for God.  Needless to say, I was a little naive.  But, instead of doing the typical wannabe artist thing and waiting tables, I decided that I would go out and prove to God and the world that I could have a ministry without sitting around waiting for a record company to snap me up.  Unfortunately,…
