Joy in the Morning

Verse of the Day

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Aaron Shust

Aaron Shust wrote his first hit songs for his church - never thinking they would be more than a chance to lead his local congregation in worship. My Savior, My God went on to top six different charts at once on its way to becoming the most played song on Christian radio in 2006!

In early 2010 he and his wife made the decision to pull up stakes from Atlanta and move their young family back to Aaron’s Pennsylvania hometown, where he was invited to take on the role of worship leader in the very church he had grown up in. Now they call Pittsburgh “home.” So they could use your prayers...

The past few years have been an emotional roller coaster for the father of three young sons, yet amongst the challenges there have been miracles with each trial and tribulation. Aaron's second son, Nicky, was extremely ill as an infant and then when their third son, Michael was born, they faced a new set of challenges. He had a heart condition and was diagnosed with Down Syndrome.

“I feel like every day is an adventure. Every day presents a challenge. How do we tackle this one? How do we approach this one? The answer is by the grace of God. In everything that comes our way, whenever we start to find ourselves overwhelmed, the mighty hand of God reaches down and picks us up. I feel that. His hand sustains us and we feel very lifted.”
- Aaron Shust

Christmas: This year Aaron released his first ever full-length Christmas album called Unto Us!

ARTIST OF THE DAY
7eventh Time Down

The guys of 7eventh Time Down grew up as best friends in Kentucky. They picked up instruments together. They wrote songs together - and now they get to tour and lead worship together! It’s a story that every Christian garage-band dreams of - and it is the story 7eventh Time Down gets to live.

For 7eventh Time Down, every song is an opportunity for ministry. The band has toured with a long list of impressive artists, including Newsboys, for King & Country, KJ-52, Manafest, Fireflight and Stellar Kart. They are on the road over 100 days a year chasing every opportunity to inspire and point people towards Jesus.

In an effort to expand their ministry beyond their music, the band partners with CURE International, a non-profit that operates hospitals and programs in 27 countries worldwide where patients receive surgical treatment and have the opportunity to hear the Gospel. During the “Club Awesome Tour” alone, more than 38 surgeries were funded.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Finding Favour

Hailing from Georgia, each of the band's members were raised in Christian homes and felt a calling to music ministry. After playing at many youth camps across the country, the band signed a record deal, and is quickly gaining momentum.

"We were trying to figure out what kind of band we wanted, what kind of songs we wanted, and figure out what we wanted our message to be,” says lead singer Blake NeeSmith. “We felt like God was continually speaking to us, saying, Don't worry about being cool. Just write songs that minister to my people."

Missions: Band member Dustin Daniels spent 13 years as a missionary in Chile, South America.

Line-Up:
Blake NeeSmith (lead singer/vocals)
Dustin Daniels (bass/guitar/vocals)

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Sidewalk Prophets

Integrating worship with real life - that is one of the simple truths Sidewalk Prophets has learned to live by. Dave Frey and Ben McDonald founded the band in college, having no idea that in a short time they would have a successful record and a loaded touring schedule. A demo tape landed them in a campus talent contest, which somehow connected them to Audio Adrenaline's Will McGinniss, landing them an opening gig for Audio Adrenaline which formed the template for their life now spent on the road over 150 days of the year.

Sounds like a fun life, right? Sure, if you want to leave family and friends to live on the road for half of each year, sleeping in the janitor’s closet at some venues, and making due with beans and cornbread, while trying to practice, write and record in between shows.

Exhausting? Yes.
Worth it? To Sidewalk Prophets, they'd have it no other way!

Dave and Ben rounded out their band with a bassist and drummer they found on Craigslist. So you never know who will respond to your ad!

One church, from the far corner of the earth has single-handedly inspired three generations worth of worship music. Hillsong. How did a single church connect with the global Church in such a meaningful way? Well they have always (and continue to) raise up leaders and encourage diversity in worship.

Every year the worship ministry produces a live worship album that includes hundreds of leaders from across the globe. This year’s release No Other Name is decidedly special. Blending the sounds of their variety of worship teams - including Dove Award nominees UNITED and Young & Free - the collection of original worship songs will no doubt inspire and enable worship teams and churches from all corners of the world.

ARTIST OF THE DAY
Michael W. Smith

Michael Whitaker Smith was born October 7, 1957 to Paul and Barbara Smith in Kenova, West Virginia. Michael was your typical Southern boy – active in baseball, his family’s church activities, and playing piano. He wrote his first song at age 5 (I’m sure it was precious) - but as a child, he longed to be a professional baseball player!

In 1982, Michael was asked to play keyboards in a band that was backing up Christian & Pop sensation, Amy Grant. Michael toured and wrote with Amy for years before launching his own solo career. In 1989 his song Go West Young Man began what would become one of the most legendary careers in Christian music.

From pavement pounding superstar of the 1990s, to record label founding, mega-producer artist who jets around the world on private planes - Smitty has sung for Presidents and orphans alike! According to his Twitter feed, this week he’s working on a new Christmas album with Country superstars Lady Antebellum. But that’s just another day in the life of a guy who’s sold more than 15 million albums, scored 28 No. 1 hits, earning three GRAMMYs and more than 40 Dove Awards.
