Chapter 10: Entering the Hold

Unfortunately, life doesn’t go by check lists.

The boarding school was located in a secluded area in beautiful Virginia. In many ways, it was a wilderness.

What does this part of life have to do with the NarroWay story?


Maybe it made us realize:
If hell is worse than this, we don’t want anyone to go there!!

That’s it!

When the time isn’t right or there’s something left to learn, God puts us in a HOLDING PATTERN.

Holding Pattern: "the flight path maintained by a plane awaiting permission to land."

Chapter 11: The NarroWay Mindset


birdie clown costumeI Corinthians 9:22: "I have WILL become all things to all men, that by all means I might save some." This is one of Birdie's and Rebecca's life principles which became part of the NarroWay mindset.REBECCA –
We headed back to Kentucky to become what we said we never wanted to be: church staff!

Birdie was Music & Youth. I was Education & Youth.

My first priority was to build the music program. At my first rehearsal I had 12 choir members.

And I was one of them!

Chapter 12: The Footprints of God


basset hound in snowBIRDIE –
Rebecca and I served in two churches, the first for five years, the second for ten. But both of these churches also served us.

They let us dream big! They allowed us to be unique! They were willing to try new things and do things in a new way!

They took ownership in the vision and gave us the space, resources, and support we needed to hone our skills.

They were the guinea pigs, for which we are eternally grateful!

When we look back, NOW we can clearly see specific things God did to prepare us for NarroWay. As it was happening, it just seemed like “small stuff.”
