Pacific Gold's Sing My Welcome Home is out today! Get it here for $7.99.

Because of our careers in Music and ministry we have spent the last twelve years in bars, churches, tour buses, counseling sessions, wild parties, prayer circles, and circles of people doing drugs. It's given us a perspective that's too interesting to keep to ourselves, so we write about it on this Blog, and talk about it on this Podcast. We also have a Store with great music, books and clothing.
