00chriscook Throw-way-back today. I keep this priceless picture of my mom and me in my Bible and pull it out when I spend time with the Lord. She taught me to have a hunger for the "active, sharper than a two-edged sword" Word and to always keep first things first: God's presence, period. As a young boy, she taught me to not settle into "comfortable" Christianity but to press-in to see the manifestation of what He paid for upon the cross. Jesus is the center of her life, and I say "is" because she is with Him presently. This has been a week of profoundly missing her. There is so much I wish I could talk to her about right now. I've learned that grief definitely is a journey, and until you've experienced it firsthand, it's truly indescribable. This I know, the Holy Spirit is a very present help in a time of need. Love and miss you, momma. 2w
  •   melissakymlanes1 Yes brother "truly indescribable." Love you & I will miss you while I am in Cabo next week!! XO 2w
  •   alishasaigh Love this and love you, brother friend. 2w
  •   fab4_momma Yes it is, Chris. I love you. I am most certain, momma and Jesus intercede for you and Carm, often. 1w

00chriscook Happy Birthday to my amazing aunt Ann. She's my momma's baby sister and was her best friend. Tonight, we made my mom's lasagna and had dinner as a family. I'm so grateful for her love and encouragement. She's one of the most important people in my life. XO 4w

00chriscook I've anticipated this for many years. Jennifer is more than one of my best friends, she's family. Her debut single, "On Fire," was released today, produced by my good friend, @shanegrush and mixed by the one and only @grantmohrman. I was privileged to play keys and bass on the record. The song hits iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and other outlets very soon, but in the meantime, listen to the song via jenniferazzato.com. 1mon

00chriscook One of the greatest privileges I have ever had is to be entrusted to speak into the lives of young adults and help build their lives for significance. Recently, I've been vocal coaching an extraordinary young lady as she prepares to sing a Bruno Mars hit for her high school singing competition next month. I'm so proud of her hard work and know that she'll do so well. Her family gave me this amazing mug and a few other things for Christmas. It truly means so much. As a musician, what means even more is knowing that I've added value to her and her sister's life. It's an incredible honor that I'll never take for granted. So blessed by this gift. Love you, Chiappelli's!! 2mon
  •   00chriscook @serenachiappelli love you back! I am SO proud of you and Chloe. You're two of my favorite people. You're gonna smash "Grenade." 2mon
