Inspiring concert at the Thrive Conference. Between you ladies and Frances, I was blown away. Can't wait for the next time I can hear you again. For now - I'm wearing out my CD.

I attended your concert at Bethany Baptist Women's Ministry Dinner December 8th 2011. You guy's were "AWSOME". I purchased a CD and tee shirt and listen to the CD daily. Your music truly brings me ito God's presence

Let me just say OH MY GOODNESS! I am just thrilled and pleased I got the chance to hear this wonderful music. My mom got me hooked after listening to you guys at a conference meeting she was having and the songs "Shout Your Fame" and "Revive Us Again" really got my attention. I hope you all continue to grow in your ministry and just do what God has called you to do.

Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us at the Women's Get-Together in Gatlinburg. Also, thank you for your prayers for our pastor's wife on Saturday night. She is a true treasure to our church. She is battling a blood disease and so far has not gotten good results with the treatment she is taking. She has had several battles over the past few years including losing a daughter to cancer. But no matter what the situation, she always keeps on smiling and laughing.
Again, thank you so much for your prayers and for giving us such inspiration with your music.

I attended the Women's Get Together this year in Gatlinburg, TN. This is the first time that I have attended the women's instead of the teens. I enjoyed being with the adults and the conferences really spoke to me but most of all your music touched my heart. You all have powerful voices and in them you can see the work of the Holy Spirit. I bought your CD and can't stop listening. Thank you for being a blessing to all of us that attended and may God continue to bless you and your families in your ministry. Let me know if you come to Nashville to perform. I will be there!


March 26, 2009

I was at the missions get-together in Gatlinburg, TN. Thank you so much for your worship time. It touched me so much. I pray that the Lord continues to bless you.


March 26, 2009

was wondering were a person could get sheet music for the cd? would love to sing these songs in church and also play them on my guitar as well.


March 26, 2009

Thank-you for loving the Lord and for shareing your voices with everyone. May the Lord continue to bless each of you and your families.

You girls are great! I loved you from the first song I heard at the Missions Get-Together in Gatlinburg, TN. Point of Grace has been my all time favorite for years and I now find myself saying "I like you better". I will be watching for you on the music charts. Thank you for submitting to God's call. Blessings to all of you,

I heard you for the first time at the Missions Get-Together Conference in Gatlinburg, TN, you what a blessing I received! Our Lord is definitely using you to spread his message and it was great talking to you all. Darlene, thank you for your words of encouragement to just hand the nervousness over to the Lord and to just sing for our Lord. By Design has blessed and encouraged me so much. I hope to hear of another album coming out soon! God bless you and keep you safe.

Hi Girls,
The first time I heard you all sing was at Hebron when Ester Burrows spoke. Oh, how you touched my heart and my life. I had accepted Jesus Christ only days before and I had as they say an "Explosion of Faith". I along with my good friend laughed and cried that night. Along with Esther's wisdom, I took home you CD. I have been listening and singing my heart out ever since. My 6 yr old has two favorites, My Redeemer Lives and Shout! We must look crazy in the car beacuse we turn it up real loud and sing and clap. I Thank you for your uplifting words and songs. I have shared your music with everyone I know and will continue to do so. Thank you for the work you do and God Bless you and your families.

I was not able to go to the women's conference in Columbia, SC this year, but received a copy of "Where Hope Remains" from my friends that did go. I cannot stop listening to the CD! You girls are awesome! The words of your songs have brought me closer to God!

This has been a rough week for me. I lost a very dear friend in an automobile accident on March 7th. He and his wife along with their son have been friends of my family for around 18 years. I just want to share that your music has been my constant during this time of grief. The one song especially was STILL. On the morning we all gathered at Fire Headquarters to travel to Hartwell for our beloved Lieutenant's funeral, several of us joined in and listened to this song to remind us of God's love and promise that he will always be with us to hold us during the storms in our life. May God continue to bless you. I love you so much. Please keep Lt. Don Kirkpatrick's family in your prayers. Love, Sue

No words can express our gratitude to all of you for singing at Hailey and John Neal's wedding. I know you do not normally sing at weddings but your music added that special spirit. That was the prettiest version of "O Holy Night" I've ever heard. We had so many friends and family comment on how beautiful you sang. God has truly blessed each one of you with a beautiful voice.
Thank you so much! May God's blessing be with you all.
Love, Sherry and Steve

You have been blessed with such an extraordinary gift. Your rendition of "Where Joy and Sorrow Meets" is one of the most beautiful I have ever heard!! It brings me to tears each time I hear it. Thank you so much for sharing your gift. I hope you will make it to California someday!! Thank you again!

We are former members of Hebron and have enjoyed watching your ministry become sweeter as the days have gone by. Hey! I think that's a song, maybe you gals should work that one up! :))
You have blessed Randall and I in such a way and we pray for each of you, your ministries and your precious famalies.
I know God has so much in store for you girls and I get excited just thinking what he is going to use By Desing in such a mighty way.
