A note from Eric…
There was a time in my life when everything seemed hopeless.  I dare not forget that I was terribly lost and heading down the completely wrong path.  In fact, my first studio recording was titled “Lost” and the first track on the tape was called Past the Point of No Return.  But on November 3, 1994, at the age of 17, my best friend led me to accept Jesus as my personal savior.   Shortly after that, I quit my rock band and began leading worship for the youth services at the church down the street from my house.  I was mentored by a worship team member, and grew as a guitar player and a worship leader. Now, after serving several local churches as the full time worship leader, I am using my talents to teach, train and encourage other worship leaders and Christian musicians.  If you are unsure about where you are headed, read the track that I read that changed my life.
4 Spiritual Laws

Psalm 40:3
I waited patiently for the Lord; He turned to me and heard my cry.  He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.  Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord.
