HE'S MORE THAN JUST...

A video gamer...

My son has also been blessed with the talent of playing a guitar!

We love hearing him play his guitar...and he plays for the Lord! It's only been 3 years since he started, and he's had no formal lessons. That's totally all God! He alternates worship for our home fellowship, and in June, he and my daughter will start to lead worship for the Jr. High group at our church. I love that he's so humble when he plays. He doesn't expect praise or admiration because he knows that this is all for Gods glory!

He's still shy about singing in front of certain people, so he didn't want to sing on video. But, he does have a beautiful voice too!

Alicia the Lord has given all of your children wonderful gifts. And they are using them to praise Him.

Such a talented young man, I love that song.

Lisa said...

Great guitar playing, that is so wonderful that he leads worship at your home and will then start with the youth,...that is where I am hoping AJ will end up...for now he will be using his saxophone.
Tito's family always gets out the music when we visit and it is such good practice for AJ and Emily...I hope to one day move closer to them. I love music and instruments.

I couldn't play the video but I'm sure he sounded great. I think all kids should learn how to play an instrument.

The Farmer Files said...

My boys heard me playing this on the laptop downstairs and came running downstairs to listen. They are 4 and 2. The 4 year old clapped at the end and said, "YAY! What's the next song!"

King J's Queen said...

Beautiful! Well done! He's definitely got a lot of talent.

That boy is talented.
My kids play middle eastern drums and a casio keyboard.
I love to hear their music. It must make your heart want to burst when you hear your child play like that.
