I\'m a 43yr old praise and worship leader, I\'ve been leading praise and worship at my church for 8yrs now and I love it! I\'m originally from Pasadena California, I now live in the beautiful Seattle area. I became a christian my last year of high school and have been pursuing a deeper intimacy with God ever since then. Along with more then a few bumps and pot holes in my journey, I\'m still pursuing God! I first started singing in our high school choir and actually won best soloist of the year, my last year of school. I come from very muscial family, my father is a gospel singer along with my now deceased grandparents. My mother also is a wonderful vocalist and pursued a career in music in the mid 70\'s. I\'m the second of four boys in my family. I believe that music is one of the most powerful tools that God uses, to reach the heart and soul of men and women, next to the word of God and His Holy Spirit of course. Music has a way of touching that part of you that only a great melody, the hypnotic grooves of a great instrument or a sweet powerful chorus or phrase can. Music also has a way of lifting a weary, tired and dispairing heart, right into a place of hope, peace and joy. This is truly my passion and purpose in the songs the Father gives me to write and sing. To remind you of our hope in Christ, and minister to that broken and frail part of every man, woman, boy and girl. My mission is to convey the Gospel of Jesus Christ, through song. To help mankind focus on the power of God for every situation in their lives, through intimacy with Jesus and the power of music, in praise and worship. I believe and trust, that this CD \'Inspired\' represents that. I called it Inspired because I never set down and purposely wrote any of the songs represented on this album. God in my everyday life, dropped these melodies, harmonies, lyric\'s, rhymes and rhythm\'s in my heart, for the purpose of ministry. It is truly \'Inspired\' of God, I say this with all humility. I believe this CD will make you wanna, dance, shout, cry, meditate, fall on your face or just be still in His presence. Each song is different and has it\'s own unique flavor to it. One thing I\'m certain you\'ll come away with, is that it\'s all about Jesus! I\'am amazed at His awesome handywork in my life, I strive to know the Father more and more each day. I\'am not perfect, I\'m a frail and broken man, who is always in desperate need of a Savior, everyday, every minute of the day. Thanks be to God, for Jesus! My hope and prayer is that as you listen to these songs, you would come away, lifted, enouraged, ministered too, and alot closer to our Heavenly Father. To God be all the Glory! Peace! Thomas Jenkins.
