The Story Behind the Song #6 : You Are My Advocate  

For about three or four years we attended a small local fellowship here in middle Tennessee where the men had the freedom to share from the pulpit at the beginning of the service. One Sunday a young man got up and simply read a list of the various names and attributes of God in alphabetical order. I made a mental note to one day write a song using that list. Several years later I finally made the time to pray about it and this was the result. The children and I have also attempted to do sign language with the various names. The neat thing about sign language is that the sign itself often helps you to remember the meaning. I also think it would be neat to do a Bible study on all of these names one day.  (Note:  This photo was taken in November of 2005 when Todd and I took our first trip to Florida together to see his family after we were married.)
