WELCOME!

Welcome to my blog! I hope to be a resource to help you in your walk with God. Now more than ever we need to get back to the basic fundamentals of moral living and take a stand for what is right and truthful with God as our ultimate authority. His Word is reliable and preserved and can be trusted, so that is the basis for my advice and teaching. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or topics you would like me to cover. I look forward to sharing what God has placed on my heart. See my website at http://www.dawnfoss.tateauthor.com and http://www.dawnfoss.com/ for books and music I have written that will enrich your life!

Ezekiel 22:30: "And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none." Let's stand in the gap together!

Praise the Lord!

I had a wonderful time today at a ladies seminar at Middletown Bible Church in Middletown, CT.  One thing that stood out to me that I wanted to share was something they mentioned from Pastor Parsons: when you think "depression", say to yourself, "Do Press On! Praise God!"  Got it? Depression - do press on - praise God!  Turn those feelings around and get your mind back.

I love the song by Russ Taff called, "Praise the Lord." The chorus says, "Praise the Lord! He can work through those who praise Him, praise the Lord!  For our God inhabits praise. Praise the Lord!  For the chains that seem to bind you, serve only to remind you that they drop powerless behind you when you praise Him!"

It is so true!  If you sing praises to God during your difficult times, it changes your perspective and attitude.  Praise Him in the good times, praise Him in the bad times, praise Him all the time!

Psalm 22:3: "But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel."
Psalm 113:1: "Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD."

Click on the link below to hear the song, "Praise the Lord", and watch a water fountain show!  I hope it encourages you today.

MUST READ about Fifty Shades of Grey

This article is spot on when it comes to healthy vs. unhealthy relationships.  This article is by a pediatrician and child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist, as well as a mother.  Please read this short article for an evaluation of this unhealthy movie.  It's expected to be one of the most attended movies ever on Valentines Day, but it's preaching something to you that can harm you and your future.  We need to make wise choices in our entertainment.

A movie called, "Old Fashioned", shown today in some states, is a much better alternative, showing what a healthy relationship looks like.  It looks like a wonderful film to watch that promotes respect to women and a caring relationship.

Today is my Release Date for Beauty in Pain!

I am very pleased to announce that today is my release date for my Beauty in Pain album!  You now have more options than just ordering it through Tate Publishing  Buy CD from Tate Publishing, or through Tate Music Group See electronic press kit, or by coming to one of my book signings or concerts (for event listing, see link above "See electronic press kit" under "events").

As of right now, I see it online through amazon.com and have noticed it on the American site, French, German, UK, and Japanese sites.  Amazon has samples that you can listen to, to get an idea of the style and tone of my music/voice.  You can also download singles, or the entire album if you choose.  It's also available on many other sites, but I've listed three links below.

I hope you are encouraged and blessed by listening to my songs!  I am currently writing my 4th book, and it's about music.  The working title is: "Choosing Music Wisely: Revolutionizing Christian Music in the 21st Century."  I am hoping to submit my manuscript by the end of the month.  My hope and dream is to create and encourage other artists and performers to create God-honoring music, music in which God is pleased and glorified, without carnality.  There is a balance, as we can take music to two extremes, and I lay practical guidelines out using God's Word, some great resources, and 30 years of music experience in ministry as my guide.

God bless you!
