Colton Dixon Plays Shipwreck or Poop Deck

Colton Dixon has a new song called Build a Boat.  I liked it so much it inspired me to play a round of “Shipwreck or Poop Deck” with him. I know when he woke up this morning this was certainly NOT on his “to do” list but he is always a great sport. video I was happy that Colton even stuck around for a serious conversation about the story and meaning behind his new song… … Continue reading

Preaching, Praying and Performing with Tauren Wells

My respect for Tauren goes way beyond his musical ability.  We sat down and talked about preaching, praying, and performing but, I really loved his take on restoration when it comes to people inside the faith that make mistakes like comedian, John Crist. I loved his quote about restoration! “We shouldn’t be so quick to hit the cancel button on people because the only cancelling Jesus did was of our sins.” – Tauren Wells  … … Continue reading

Betty’s Airbrush T-shirt Song

Betty Rock went to Dollywood and brought back a souvenir that I am sure she will pass down to her children’s children.  It was an airbrush T-shirt of Dolly Parton’s Face and she could not be more excited! This is the picture of what the shirt is supposed to look like??? “I know it’s trashy, but it’s so me!” –  Betty Rock … Continue reading

Photo Op: That’s Embarrassing

Photo Op is where Wally makes us send him the last photo we took on our phones and tell him the story behind it. Which photo do you like the best? Wally: This is what it looks like when you go shopping and forgot that you are in the store where you bought the outfit you are wearing. I could not resist pointing this out to my wife, Mardi.  I think women appreciate that kind… … Continue reading

Bullets + Backpacks = Broken

It’s an all too familiar site. Terrified looks on the faces of kids as they try to process what they have just seen. SWAT members trying to bring order to chaos. Worried parents crying as they are reunited with, or learn the fate of their child. It is yet another senseless school shooting. When you hear what happened at Robb Elementary school in TX or see the videos, you cannot help but feel something.You might… … Continue reading

Jordan St. Cyr Helps Heal Wally’s Heart

This was my first time talking to Christian artist, Jordan St. Cyr.  It is probably not the sign of a healthy person to dump your Jr. High trauma on someone you just met, but Jordan seemed to have a kind heart.  My suspicion was proven true when he wrote a song to help me heal from a horrific Jr. High wedgie. We also talked seriously about how music can help us through some of our… … Continue reading

Photo Op: What Betty Looks Like When She Concentrates

Photo Op is where Wally makes us send him the last photo we took on our phones and tell him the story behind it. Which photo do you like the best?  Recently we did a video shoot and Betty had to concentrate really hard.  I know this because when she does, her tongue always sticks out of the side of her mouth.  It is interesting that her concentratin’ face also looks a lot like her… … Continue reading

Pastor’s Wife Struggles with Doubt

Recently I got an email from a lady who asked two very big questions about God.  I too had these questions in the past so I wanted to let her know how I reconciled them with my faith: Hi Wally, I enjoy your thought provoking questions on FB.  I’m afraid to post my questions on my personal wall as I’m a pastor’s wife. I’ve been struggling with this quite a bit for a while. The… … Continue reading
