When a Tour Ends...Part 2.


Charlotte, N.C.

So, I promised you all these fantastic photos of me with the other artists at Winter Jam.  And guess what?  I DIDN'T GET ANY.  Except for the extremely flattering picture above of me dancing onstage with Family Force 5 on the last night with about 75 other people from the tour. So there's that... :)

Here are some other recent shots that I thought you might like to see.  Enjoy! 

We took the kids to see the ducks at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis on their last day of the tour.  


These are my band guys.  They love scooters.  And coffee.  And they are cool.


Here they are again.  We apparently only wear the color black.  


Here are my kiddos in their For King and Country gear.  "Give me your best cool faces, guys." ;)


Rehearsals for the Bible Tour (which launched last week) started a few days after Winter Jam ended.



On Easter Sunday, I had the honor of playing the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville with Steven Curtis Chapman, Jason Crabb, Charles Esten, The Fairfield Four, The Mcrary Sisters, and Colony House.  It was an incredible night!


It was so special to have some of my best girls there!  Jodi, Jaime, and Lindsay, I love y'all so much! 

I can't believe the tour is over.  It was an incredible 3 months.  Winter Jam is truly one of the best tours in the world, and I'm so thankful I've had the chance to be a part of it three different times.  The ministry that goes on each night and the stories that we hear are incredible.  God moved in a mighty way all across the country, and its an honor to have been a small part of that. 

With WJ ending and Bible Tour starting immediately (and having one of the busiest routing schedules ever), I've been really slow on getting you posts.  Add to that real life, motherhood, and Blogger issues, and it's been rough.  Thanks for sticking with me as I get in the swing of things, and please keep reading!  Love you guys!

  1. Thanks so much for doing what you can for the blog! Even with your busy schedule you carve out time to write these posts! I was blessed enough to be able to see you perform at both Winter Jam and The Bible Tour. Both of which were incredibly amazing!! Maybe one of these days I'll be given the chance to meet you! But for now I'll just enjoy the music you have been so kind to share with all your fans!

  4. Franny, love seeing your blog posts. You are truly and amazing woman. I admire you. Could you please pray for me? I have several health issues including Lymes and Bartonella. I'm being treated but it's a long process. I did get to meet you once when you were in PA last Oct. I don't know if you remember or not but I had knitted you a grey cowl
