"Your Glory"

Well the day has arrived.  We are really excited about the release of our first album, "Your Glory," available on itunes.

This is the culmination of almost two years of really hard work. And that is an understatement. We started out with one goal and that was to express our love for Christ, and our hope for others to find Him.

There has been a lot of sacrifice, prayer, and trial and error in this process. I read through the entire Bible for the second time trying to grow closer to God, and I desperately sought His will as I tried to write songs that not only reflect my journey to redemption, but are Biblically sound. There were so many times that I second-guessed the entire project. There were so many dark times when we both wanted to quit. But it never failed--a little glimmer of God's promises would come from nowhere to keep us going.

There are so many different styles on this recording, but that's who we are. We have both had so many different opportunities as musicians, but never one like this. This is truly a reflection of who we are today.

We both feel like God gave us a second chance, and we know there is someone else out there who just needs a little bit of encouragement to trust God to turn around a life that is going in the wrong direction.

There is a new world around us. A world that needs hope. We just want to share that hope in Christ.

All of theses songs are original except for "Blessed Assurance," "Down in the Valley to Pray," and "You Give Me Joy." All of the lyrics to the original songs are on the side bar.  The album "Your Glory" is available on itunes, and you can follow the link on the sidebar here and on our facebook page. I added "Be Near Me" to the tunecore player so you can listen here if you want. You can click on this link for itunes:

Our heartfelt thanks to all of you who have been so supportive and encouraging.  It is our hope that you find the way to Christ through our offering of praise.

Serving Christ,

Anita and Luis

I'm Yours...

Luis and I are SO excited to release the first single off our upcoming CD, "Your Glory," which will be available soon! "I'm Yours" is now available on itunes, at Amazon and Rhapsody. You can also listen to the whole song on the sidebar here.  We wrote this song together, and for that to be first single is really exciting for us.

This has been a long and difficult process from the beginning. We have spent the last year and a half writing, arranging, recording, mixing, then doing it all over again. In order to do that, we have traded or sold all the old gear we had and replaced it with one thing at a time. But God had been amazing, and has provided everything we needed to make this offering for Him.

We have been so blessed that between the two of us we could accomplish every part of this process ourselves thereby making it truly an "Indie" project. Along the way, my 11-year-old developed a serious interest in photography, so all the photos were taken by Miranda Pavey. Mastering was accomplished by Matthew Gray, who also did Hillsong's "God is Able" in English and Spanish.

We were initially inspired to do this project by Darlene Zschech. Her heart for God and for reaching people was so evident when we met her at a conference last year at The Cove, that we knew we had to do our part in using our gifts for Him.

We also appreciate so much the encouragement and prayer we received form Mike Harland, Director of Worship for Lifeway Christian Resources. 

We only want to encourage people to know Christ and His incredible sacrifice for us. This project has truly been a sacrifice for us, and for our families, so we dedicate it to our children: Miranda, Evelyn, Ana Maria, Lara and Cristian. We are so excited to give our 5 loaves and 2 fish as an offering to the God who can take it and use it for His glory.

We hope you are blessed!

Love in Christ,

Anita and Luis
