Bits of Stuff: May 29th, 2009

-Today I performed a medley of songs by the Jonas Brothers for Legacy Christian Academy's "Legacy's Got Talent" end-of-the-year assembly. Never even heard a Jonas Brothers song before, consciously, nor did I ever imagine playing their songs. We didn't even place in the top three.  We were beat out by two of the most popular teachers who did a great dance routine, a group of guys who performed "Don't Stop Believing" with Rock Band instruments and "chin faces" (if you don't know what that is, click HERE), and a very intelligent and handsome dog named Risky.

-I got lunch at Del Taco today, and walked in to the store while they were having like an all-employee meeting where they were going over some new Del Taco products. Despite it being a cheap fast-food joint, their training is very meticulous, and the dude leading the meeting was very thorough and detailed.  Did you know they have a target weight for every finished product?  It was strange, thinking of Del Taco as a career path for some, and aspiring to taco-greatness.

-I met with my buddy Rob the other day down at his new job in Panorama City.  He's doing graphic design stuff now, which he is perfect for.  When I arrived, he was working on artwork for the helmets that will be worn by the Canadian national bobsled team for the winter olympics. Pretty cool.

-Rehearsals for the Resolved Conference next month are going great.  Just a couple more and then we're off to Palm Springs.  3,500 college students; so cool.

I guess that's all for now!

Happy Third Anniversary

Today is our 3rd wedding anniversary!  Three years ago, Jess and I committed to love, serve, honor, and respect, and bear with each other for the rest of our lives as we follow Christ as our head.  We fail at all that stuff pretty regularly, but God's grace is huge, and we learn to forgive as he forgives, and to be patient as he is patient with us.

So much has happened in those three years; it's crazy.  But it's still just the beginning and so we raise our glass to the future and God's plans and provisions for us.

Happy Anniversary to us!

My Biggest Fan: Daniel Jo

There's this ultra cool family at our church: Phil and Rose Jo and their son Daniel.  Daniel is a youngster with the most unique little personality you've ever seen.  They are Korean, and so they all have a slight accent, which makes the following email even better (I received this from him today):

Paul ------- 

I need to share this with you…..Pretty funny man (at least to me).

It just happened…


Daniel was in bath tub, singing all his gospel songs as usual.

He goes “Dadda, Is today Friday?”

I told him “Yes, my son.”


He told me this exact sentence “Can you go to Pau Hooover’s Worship Blog?  I wanna listen to new Sunday songs.”

Pretty funny huh?  Or is it just me?


Well, have a great Friday evening my friend.


Father of Paul Hoover’s Biggest Fan,
