Hindsight 2020 is a look back on 2020 and beyond to see what’s really there and what we need to change. It’s a place to reach out, to join our hands together across this land, restore our freedoms and take out the corruption that seeks to control us all. It’s time to rise and stand together for our freedom, our generation and those to come.
It’s a fun song with a catchy tune, but make no mistake, it’s to the point. It’s time to TAKE THE GARBAGE OUT!

Hindsight is twenty-twenty, but this is twenty-one.
Didn’t know what they were doing, but now let’s have some fun.
Let’s go around town and shake some trees.

We’ll let it all hang out…

Let’s join with our neighbors and take this garbage out. Read more
Sometimes not everything was lost of our dreams and relationships in the past. Sometimes there is still life and new growth where there once seemed total devastation and destruction. Perhaps we’ve really just been maturing for SUCH A TIME AS THIS! Sometimes the Lord’s restoration and healing work goes unnoticed to us and then, wow!
This video was filmed throughout Waldo Canyon on the Rampart Range Road, Pikes Peak and the Garden Of The Gods where a fire was so destructive in 2012 and threatened Colorado Springs. Now 9 years later there’s beauty again, the young Aspens flourishing, and there are lots of areas that never burned as you can see in the video. It’s like that in our lives. SUCH A TIME AS THIS!
Relationships can and should be fun and free. We should be free to enjoy each other and to still pursue our individual dreams while supporting each other. In this, we can soar together on the heights and support each other through the tough times, the valleys as well. Destiny… Purpose… Dreams…
Have you ever heard the term, “Laughter does good like a medicine?” Also, “the Lord laughs at [the wicked], for He sees that their own day [of defeat] is coming.” “The joy of the Lord is our strength!” Did you know that when we see things the way He does, we can join in with Him in the laughter and live in joy, knowing that no matter what comes our way, He has a way through it?
It’s time to shake off those things that have been holding us down, laugh again, party with friends and family, and just plain have some fun in the midst of our enemies. Jerry Savelle said, “If Satan can’t steal your joy, he can’t keep your goods.” Why would we want to let him keep our goods?
Come on America, it’s time to rise up and start dreaming again. AMERICA DARE TO DREAM Tour.
This song is so unlike many of my other songs. It’s a message from beyond the grave to loved ones caught in the horrible path of its devastation. There is hope! There is a way through it all! There is healing!
Out of having ministered to, counseled many who were either contemplating suicide or someone who lost someone to it’s ugly claws, this song was born. The devastation left behind for family, friends, and acquaintances to have to unexpectedly deal with, is sometimes so overwhelming that it shatters many more lives in its wake. The morning after one such conversation with one of my Lyft riders in San Antonio, Texas, who had recently lost a dear friend to suicide, these lyrics were born, so I walked down to the patio of the hotel with my guitar, wrote them down and added the music.
Have you read the story of when an evil presence/demon came into Janiece’s room, the room went from being lit by the sunlight outside to pitch black in moments. She saw something appear in the darkness that terrified and paralyze her. What did she do to get the victory? This was during the 7 years of her mental struggles in and out of the mental hospitals. It’s on page 273 of the new Limited Color Edition SDDL book. Has this happened to you or someone you know?
We’ll be doing scenes like this in the movie. Get your Special Limited Edition book and read the journey before the movie comes out. Guess which scenes will be in the movie. Perhaps we’ll do a contest or something. What are your thoughts? We might put some things in the movie that are not in the book.
Going to start off this new year here in Boerne, TX where I began last year in Colorado Springs, CO before the pandemic/feardemic shut everything down. We welcome your prayers as this is an ongoing battle to get through all of the hoops.
I am putting the DREAMER’S INK TASK FORCE into full throttle and we’re going to save some lives. This is Texas and no, we haven’t shut down. There has been too many deaths related to the shut downs and isolation that the media doesn’t even mention. I’m looking into places to hold these meetings, the Bevy hotel in Boerne has given me a good rate and I want to find some places in the neighboring areas as well, including San Antonio.
Suicide strikes without warning, one day we are talking to our friend, family member or peer and the next going to their funeral. I’ve had enough. The pandemic has only made this worse.
You can start your own Task Force no matter where you are with your family, friends, and/or work place or I can come and help you get started. Read more
On this Memorial Day, I just want to say thanks to all of our vets and military. Through all the bad things you might be facing, you can make it through. We support you.
I wrote this song to encourage you and your families. I’m working on creating and filming the music video to it. I need some vets, soldiers and their families to be a part of it. Perhaps we can include some short clips of you saying something to those out there that you want to encourage. I’d like to have it finished by Veteran’s Day. After the Lord gave me the song title, SOLDIER’S STORY, and story early one morning in and out of sleep, I awakened to hearing this, “Jesus, take the wheel!” so I included that line in the song.
I’d like to use some short video clips with you in uniform, being together with your family and/or your buddies, perhaps some video of some of the military equipment and planes. I have video I took here of the stealth bomber overhead that I put in DARE TO DREAM Music Video. I’ll let you know where and when we will be filming, and might do some of it while we’re traveling on tour.
Let me know if you’d like to help me in this project. You don’t have to be in the military to help. Use our contact page to message us. True Americans are proud of you! Don’t listen to the others.
