“Give Us This Day Our Daily Guinness” - DAY 5 Germany has a winter tradition of brewing a dark-strong beer called an "Eisbock" (pronounced Ice-Bock... yes... Ice is actually involved) But here's the real kicker: Tradition is to heat up an iron rod till it gets red hot and 'poke' your beer by sticking it in for a split second. The reaction is an instant boiling frothy head, a toasty aroma and the rest of the beer stays cold. I've never seen it done in person, so when Sarah found out Joel...

Mark Heimermann is one of the most brilliant song-writers, producers and mentors that I’ve had the honor of getting to work with. Producing, writing and touring with artists like Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Jaci Velazquez and DC Talk, Mark seems to ,seemingly single-handedly, be responsible for creating the soundtrack of my earlier years while growing up in a home that only allowed listening to 'christian’ music. Why would someone at the height of their career and success decide to...
