Moving in our Grand Piano! Those babies are heavy!!! No theater is complete without one and Abigail's grand piano makes our new Branson theater feel even more like home. #SoThankfulForElevators
This is from a few weeks back when we were putting up our signs on our theater.
On the RADIO! We were so excited to do an hour-long radio interview on Good Morning Ozarks KLFC radio! Thank you to all those that listened on air!

BREAKING NEWS! Our music videos Carol of the Bells and Life is Hard each won the prestigious REMI GOLD award in their category at Worldfest Houston film festival!
You may have noticed that it's been a little quiet on social media these last couple of months. BIG and EXCITING plans are in the works, so stay tuned for a MAJOR announcement tomorrow!
Our Guatemalan concert tour last month was unforgettable in so many ways! Pictures can’t communicate the love, friendship, hospitality and sacrifice that was extended to us by these dear people – now friends. Our team leader, missionary TJ Hanken with Resourcing NOW, was a phenomenal partner to work with. We were so grateful for his knowledge of the country, language, and customs, not to mention his incredible driving and navigation skills as we bumped all over the country, from mountain switchbacks to inner city backroads. We did 20 performances in 11 days, and though almost half of us came down with a really nasty sickness from bacteria, we didn’t miss a single concert! We praise God for His protection, provision, answered prayers, and undeserved blessings that were evident on every side!

In just a few days we will walk through this airport as a family - bound for Guatemala! (The picture is from this summer when Karen flew out to VA for a string intensive program.) We ask for your prayers for this trip. We're excited to see what the Lord has in store!
We're pleased to announce that our music video, Life is Hard, has been accepted to the Christian Worldview Film Festival in San Antonio, TX! We've performed at this festival twice, and always appreciate enjoying a weekend of Christian movies and bumping shoulders with friends in the film making industry!
Currently this video is exclusively available on our DVD "House of the Johnson Strings".
