I Will Rise (Memorial For Cheryl Taylor) 2-20-2014

In February we lost a great lady who really loved Jesus. We knew she loved Jesus by the way she loved others so well. This morning I was given a card that she had written for me before she passed away that the family didn’t know was in a drawer at home. The card had a beautiful encouragement for me and my wife Jenn that we were being used by God to minister to others. It caused me to stop and thank God again for Cheryl Conover Taylor, her life, and her ministry which has extended even beyond her death. I’m grateful to have been able to share one of her favorite songs at her memorial service last February. This is the audio from that service where I played and sang, “I Will Rise” by Chris Tomlin.
