What happens when you take 10 people and: * Teach them to sing and play instruments ... * Put them on stage to perform 3+ times every week ... * Stuff them into a 15-passenger van for hours on end ... * And they're all related? Complete and utter chaos, that's what happens! No, this isn't a reality TV show ... this is reality for the 10-member Weaver family, also known as "The Weaver Believer Survival Revival." When the Weaver family first started singing, they didn't expect much to happen. Now traveling an average of 20 days a month and singing 200 shows yearly, the Weavers are committed to sharing God's word through song and encouragement. This book is a testament to the joys, pains, and strengths of family. You'll laugh at the outrageous antics, at their unbelievably true stories of life on the road, and you'll be left with a few thoughts to ponder when it's over. Watch what happens when God turns a ten-member family into a Bluegrass/Southern Gospel ministry.
About the Author
Anna discovered her love for writing at a very early age, when she wrote and entered a story in the local library's short story contest. When it won "first place," her discovery was affirmed. In high school, one of her stories received an "Honorable Men-tion" in Bob Jones University's "Inscriptions" annual writing competition. Anna has been performing with her family band, "The Weaver Believer Survival Revival" since the age of 14. Prior to that, she sang in church musicals, kids' choir, and for special occasions, before she went full-time with her family at age 16. Now at age 21, she sings and plays the acoustic bass guitar in the band. The flexibility of on-line college classes gives her the opportunity to further her education while still traveling in full-time ministry. She lives in the mountains of north Georgia with her family and pets.
