I literally wrote this song because of all of my conversations in driving for Lyft here in Colorado Springs, Colorado and from our many divine encounters over the last 6 years of traveling with my Follow Your Dreams Tour across the country and Alaska.
I didn’t realize at the time that I included the instrumental track for America The Beautiful that Pikes Peak was the mountain that inspired that song. I had already planned to put the mountain in the background so it just made it that much more special to me as I stood on top of Pulpit Rock for the filming of this video.
My passion in writing, singing and in wanting to see our country come back together where we become Americans again, helping one another, and encouraging each other, was the driving force behind the creation of this song.
I’m tired of hearing people telling me they’re on the edge of giving up, or helping others pick up the pieces from a loved one who chose to go the way of suicide. I want to be on the other side of this. I want to talk about dreams and hope. Come on neighbors we are better than this. We’ve risen to the challenge in all the wars we’ve fought over the years when we were challenged. We’ve come together as a country and we became stronger. Let’s not let this generation be the one that let’s it all fall apart from within.
We must become the change we want to see, not just keep pointing out the faults and blaming others. I hear immigrants tell me all the time that this is the greatest country in the world. Sure we have short comings, but we can overcome them. We The People are responsible for this country, not the politicians. If real freedom is what really matters to us, then we must stand up, united, and proclaim it. Then we must join our hands together and walk with each other until it becomes a reality. It has taken people to this point of division in our country, but we can be better than they are and we can and must rise above it.
We can change our nation and become that which our ancestors fought so hard to start, the land of the free and home of the brave. Dare we let their blood be in vain? No! I say, “Let us DARE TO DREAM again.”
I was in Charleston, SC the day of the shooting there. That town rejected the hate message and instead, 15,000 of us spanned the 1.9 miles of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge to show the love. That day, love won. The media were flying helicopters over us and filming. There were folks from all over the world and many different cultures. We were talking to each other and hugging each other. We didn’t even know each other, but it was the passion of love that spurred us on. Love wins! Blessings to you in your journey and Dare To Dream again. Let’s do this.
One of my dreams is to sing this song live in Washington DC, July 4, 2020, to declare these words over America. Let Freedom Ring! Someone once said it’s better to shoot for the stars and land on the moon than never to have dreamed at all. Yes! Let’s see how far we can go! Dreams! They change everything!

Some training and encouragement this morning. HEALING | DELIVERANCE | WARRIOR STATUS. We talk to a lot of folks we see in our travels who want to know more about us and how we walk with the Lord. It is evident, they don’t have access to the teaching and training we’ve had and share, so I’m starting to use these videos to do that. Because of our current living situation here in Colorado Springs, I don’t have a set time and day to do these. The hotel is letting me use another room to film these. So grateful.
If you’d like to get the notifications when I’m LIVE, please like this FB page. If you like what you hear, please pass it on to others. Where are we in our walk with the King? Are we the warriors He’s called us to be, or do we simply follow others? Choices!
Here is the poem I read from in my LIVE video TEND TO YOUR GARDEN this morning from here in Colorado Springs, MAN OF CLAY. I’ve created an art print of it for those of you who want purchase it for yourself or a gift for encouragement or to encourage. The sunset is from a recent photo I took with Pikes Peak in the center. The prints are available now in three sizes. You can also buy a frame, change the paper weight and gloss, plus customize it. We were born with a clean slate with a dream Father wrote for us in a book in heaven, Psalm 139. Many have had their influence in our lives, some for good and some not so much. Father desires to remold and reshape us so that we can attain to the wonderful purpose He created us for. Well, following are the words to the poem and links. The print is available on my Zazzle store for now. The proceeds will help us with our transition to find a place in CO and also in the outreaches/tour. Blessings and may the Lord bless you abundantly.

Sometimes a praise report can change everything, especially for us today. When we left Atlanta on the 1st, we knew we needed to head west, possibly California to get medical testing for Janiece. When we entered Texas, we got a call to pray for a friend in a coma in San Antonio. Most of you have read that post and prayed with us. This morning we got a call saying our friend is out of ICU, is responsive, has taken the “do not resuscitate” status off, and is saying she knows the Lord still has work for her to do. We are beyond thankful and so honored the Lord would send us to help. We know we weren’t the only ones praying, but I know the words He had me declare over her in that state made a huge difference and you are part of that. Suicide avoided and another dream of His has a chance to be fulfilled along with the rest of us in His Kingdom. This is why we go, even for one. I just wanted to share this to encourage those of you who are praying with us and you who are helping to support us financially. You are so appreciated.
So it seems that Easter is on April 1 this coming year. Going to be interesting, just saying.
I was looking at the Calendar to set up some bookings around the country this year. Looking at Nebraska, Oklahoma, Kansas, and possibly surrounding states (Colorado & Arkansas, etc?) for later in April and early May. Florida and area in February or March or possibly Arizona & New Mexico and area in January & February. Just throwing some things out there in case some of you live in those areas. We have some connections in these areas, but would love to have more to help us get the word out there. Read more

A Message Of Hope Along A Lonely Road! | In Memory Of… Web Page
After discussing this with some friends and ministers about this and getting very positive feedback, I decided to go with it. I didn’t want people to think we’re trying to make money off of someone else’s grief. This is a delicate subject and I want to treat it with respect.
Many folks want to help in preventing suicide but don’t know how. So many have lost loved ones to suicide, drug overdose, or simply lost someone too soon, and want to reach out to others to make a difference, but don’t have a way. Just one simple voice with a loving message might just make a difference in a life or death decision as someone skims through cyberspace looking for a reason to live!
We have provided a way to do both on Joseph James’ website and soon, Sentenced To Death, Destined for Life website as well. For a minimum $10 monthly or $120 yearly donation, we will place the name of the loved one you lost, your name, and a short message you want to add on the websites. It can be a famous person as well. This will serve a three-fold purpose.
#1. It will help us to reach out with our concerts|productions|outreaches to those who need encouragement and help keep our costs down. Traveling and paying for venues is very expensive. We are joining with other organizations in each community to make sure that those who need help, get it.
#2. You will be able to tell someone else a short story about how much your loved one meant to you. Perhaps this will make a difference to someone who reads your memory. Perhaps it will convince them that their loved ones care for them as well. Sometimes it doesn’t take much to change one’s mind.
#3. Your memory is an ongoing testimony to everyone who reads it, of a life that was taken too soon, no matter the reason. Everyone matters and has a destiny to fulfill!
We thank you for your support and help. We’ve been traveling for four years, paying our own way but together we can do even more. Eventually, we’ll be traveling with a production and cast.
Here is the link to the page. There are some sample posts there now. You can click on the link on that page to help sponsor the outreach tour: https://www.joseph-james.net/JJ10/index.php/sponsors/in-memory-of/
We’ll be adding this page to http://www.sentencedtodeathdestinedforlife.com as soon as we can.
