A Ragamuffin Soul named Carlos

28 01 2010

I love the heart of Carlos Whittaker.  He is the real deal….never contrived or posed…always authentic…and completely sold out for God.  There is a new generation of worshipers coming up and I believe Los has created soundtrack for it with his new EP and upcoming LP.  Check out his story here:

Working with guys like Los is the fun part of this gig at Integrity Music.  Doing things like this 30 Day Give-Away make this career a calling.  Seeing Los hit number 1 on iTunes Christian Album Charts on his first day in the store makes me jump and shout!

God is touching lives through faithful servants like Los…and I thank Him often for letting me be a part of the team.  I work with some of the smartest guys in the business…and on days like this we celebrate a great team effort and victory!

Breathe In & Smile Out,

Chris

Quarterback Leadership

3 11 2009

I’m a bona fide Who Dat nation card carrying member. If you cut me, I bleed black & gold. Tonight’s game with my Saints battling the dirty birds of Atlanta I learned a couple of lessons in leadership from our star QB Drew Brees.

A great leader knows when to drop back in the pocket so he can read the field

Brees has a superstar, or great leader, ability to drop back and make the big play. He reads the field of opposition. He looks for the opportunity. Most importantly he places the utmost confidence on the receivers to catch the ball in the small windows he threads it through. Ultimately he rallies the team to rise to the occasion, sets the bar, and delivers the opportunity for success. In the the end the team celebrates the victory.

Breathe In & Smile Out,
Chris

Exodus 15:2-3

A Song of Deliverance

The Lord is my strength and my song;
he has given me victory.
This is my God, and I will praise him—
my father’s God, and I will exalt him!
The Lord is a warrior;
Yahweh is his name!
