I'm open to ideas. I want to come to you to share my story and my songs!!!
... songs and messages are awesome. You show such passion through your music
Hey buddy, thank you so much for sending your CD. I just wanted to tell you how amazing I think the project is. The musicianship, the performances, the songwriting, the quality of the recording and mastering, even the packaging is all spectacular! Congratulations to you on a fabulous project my friend. All the best,
-SOL KNOPF (singer/songwriter, "My Baby Girl")
I especially loved that when we were listening to "Word, Sent to Save" my six year old asked to get a Bible out and found the story of Mary hearing that she was with child. He's listening and connecting. Thanks Grier! And to all friends, please check out Feed HIS Sheep! Not only is the music good but the proceeds go to helping two infant nutrition centers in the DR Congo!
I have listened to your CD three times and found more wonderful musical surprises each time. I think it should be played on Christian radio stations.

I welcome constructive criticism, some of which I might just put on this site.
I'm happy to answer your questions, privately and/or publicly.
Perhaps you're a JEOPARDY fan. Send me anticipated answers from which I might be able to give you your question.
Around 2011, I discovered that God was putting on my heart song writing ideas. I had never written
before - despite my musical background - nor would I intentionally sit down and write a song over the next five years
without feeling called upon by God! I started recording these eight songs that would become a CD entitled "Feed HIS Sheep."
From the beginning of the recording process, I recalled my missions work experience of 2005 in the
Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Pictures of orphans, a homeless man, and families at infant
nutrition centers were engrained in my brain. As we started recording these songs, it became evident
how I was to use them. Proceeds from sales would go to the two nutrition centers
in the city of Kananga; in so doing, I would bring honor and glory to GOD!!!
John - chapter 21
1 John 3:16-18
Depending on your source, unemployment rates in the Democratic Republic of Congo vary from slightly below 50% to around 80%. Economically, the country has recently been hit with a
50% inflation rate. A 2014 estimate puts 63% of its
population below the poverty line. As a result, the
homeless rely on the generosity of the village.
Fundraising drives this project: proceeds from all sales are
meant to benefit two infant nutrition centers in Kananga, DR Congo!

25 is the chapter; 40, the verse.
From the gospel according to
Matthew: “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of THE LEAST of THESE
brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ " (NIV)
Starting with verse 31, Jesus tells a parable to teach us how we are to treat those in need. When with little thought to our actions that reflect an unconditional love, we serve the hungry, house the homeless, provide water for those who thirst, visit the imprisoned, and care for the sick, we are ultimately serving our LORD and SAVIOR.
Let me know if you'd like to support The 25-40 project by purchasing my CD "Feed HIS Sheep."
