    The devotion of the day, So the verse in this devotion comes from Psalm 5:3 In the morning, LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait expectantly. What does this verse mean to you? Well, this is what it means to me. I believe that this verse means that in the morning you hear God’s voice and in the morning he lays what he wants for you to do. He is telling you what he wants you to do in the morning! Prayer: Dear Father God, Thank you for this day. We love you!

  • grace on May 10th, 2018 - 4:43pm

     

    @Everyone Hey everyone, Update on my leg: It’s gotten worse, please keep praying. I asked my mom if we would be going to the doctors soon and she hasn’t answered, but it’ll get better. Also, should I do a prayer blog where we all post our prayer requests and if we pray for the person we post that we did? The 5 people that pray the most will be acknowledged on the newest podcast. If you guys think I should just comment and I’ll decide by the end of the week. -Thanks, Everyone!

    Hello?


  • Tessa on May 31st, 2018 - 9:16am

     

    Bible verse of the day
    But your inequities have made a separation between you and your God,but and your sins have hidden his face from you so that He does not hear.
    Isaiah 59:2
    If any one needs advice ask me!
    I did this before we could just talk about a problem that happening and I can help you maybe.
    But the best answers come from the Bible!


  • Tessa on May 31st, 2018 - 9:20am

    Hi everyone, a couple reminders so we can keep comments on the blog! If your comments are not going through they are probably violating our Posting Guidelines, available here: https://www.whitsendblog.org/postingguidelines/
    Also, please remember that moderating is not our full-time job, we do it because we love this community and want to help. If a post is taking a long time to come through, and meets all the guidelines, it’s probably because we are busy making new episodes. Have a great day!

  • AgentX14 on April 4th, 2019 - 9:10am

     

    Alright Lu. First of all, I’m so freaking excited you’re here! Second, to answer your question, it’s the People title that makes me think of Don’t Stop Believing. You know how it goes ‘streetlights; people’? There are tons of other songs that word could have brought to my mind but for some reason that had to be the one. XD


  • AgentX14 on April 4th, 2019 - 9:14am

     

    Here’s an lol moment. I was in the car with my cousin at a wedding recently. (The cousin btw that I asked you to pray for. Don’t stop praying please. He needs it more than ever.) Anyhow so he had his Christian music list playing, since I was in the car with him, and Whole Heart started playing and I was like, yes,yes,yes,yes. Then he apparently got tired of it and skipped it. I don’t know him well enough anymore that I’d contradict him, but I was like, ugh, I wish Lu was with me for back up. (:


  • lusa on April 5th, 2019 - 7:57pm

     

    LOLOL


  • Lusa on April 6th, 2019 - 6:54pm

     

    lol no, I’ve never heard that entire song. I seriously can not get over their one-word titles, I mean, once you start putting some thought into them (and the album covers, I have a whole rant on Wonder if you wanna hear it) they make SO MUCH SENSE. Also, this is random, but I got around to watching the vids for all of them but Another in the Fire, and… am I the only one who gets the feeling Taya steals her hubby’s clothes? XP


  • Lusa on April 6th, 2019 - 6:56pm

     

    and lol, I woulda been like, “boi, put my jam back on!”
    on that note (no pun intended), As You Find Me makes me think of a girl I know (no details, but pray for her) who’s had some crazy ups and downs over the past years, and I’m thinking like, that is the song for her. I have no idea how she’s doing tbh, I’ve talked to her twice and know her bro better… tho I dunno how ok it would be for me to ask him about her…


  • Lusa on April 6th, 2019 - 7:00pm

     

    and… I could like, NOT figure out who the dude was leading Another In the Fire. I mean, he’s *very* obviously American. So i’m like… he sounds familiar… then I realized. It’s Chris Davenport. (I think) He’s the dude from Hillsong NYC. I was like “OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH” lol. I feel so weird being such a nerd about this stuff lol. I’m dying for the 26th to get here! tho, we’ll prolly get it the 25th, cos, IDL stuff. (IT”S TIME TRAVEL!!!)


  • Lusa on April 6th, 2019 - 8:23pm

     

    Lol actually that part in Don’t Stop Believing reminds me of the first verse of “Too Young” by Sabrina Carpenter.. “Streetlights/ people/ rushing to grow up before you know…” or smth like that, I haven’t heard it in like a year and a half lol. tbh Carpenter may not have the best style or lyrics, but her voice is ON POINT. not as good as Taya tho. 😉


  • AgentX14 on April 8th, 2019 - 9:41am

     

    I really shoulda but I tend to stay quiet in situations like that and then regret it later. Also lol, this exchange I had with someone a while back:

    “Hey! I heard you like music! What kind do you like? I really love Hillsong.” -Me

    “Yeah, I actually don’t like Hillsong very much but that’s just me.” -Her

    *…* -Me

    I’ve missed you. XD


  • AgentX14 on April 8th, 2019 - 9:47am

     

    I thought I might give you a few more specifics about that boy. Basically, he’s handsome. Like really handsome. When we were younger, he never really let the tons of girls falling at his feet phase him. Now that’s all changed. His job is a model, against his parents wishes. We, who were good friends in the past, can barely hold up a conversation now. At the moment, or as of a few weeks ago, he was on the brink of a big decision. I don’t know what he chose but he needs prayer. Lots of it.


  • AgentX14 on April 8th, 2019 - 9:50am

     

    I will pray for that girl.
    And excuse me if I don’t seem very coherent today. I have a raging fever and feel like a truck just came and drove over me.
    Also btw, Taya’s new hairstyle. LIT.


  • Lusa on April 8th, 2019 - 9:09pm

     

    First of all… I did not say LOLOL on Apr 5 lol. XD that was someone else I think. second, I will DEF pray for him… third, ikr. this exchange happened to me a while ago: Me: sitting with 3 other girls chatting and “nerdiness” come up* “I’m super nerdy about Hillsong” *Two of 3 other girls point at 4th girl* 4th girl: “Taya Smith!!” Me: “YUSSSSSSS” *internally: “you are my new best friend” *cue me and girl #4 spend rest of day intermittently geeking out about Hillsong and Taya’s hair. legit.


  • Lusa on April 8th, 2019 - 9:10pm

     

    ok here’s what I need to know: do you know the actual reason she shaved her head? bc when I realized I 1) laughed and 2) realized what a *Taya* thing to do that was. XD


  • Lusa on April 8th, 2019 - 9:12pm

     

    also, I must mention Laura Toggs from Y&F… she and Melodie Wagner-Makinen sound super similar, with one difference… Laura is Joel Houston’s sister, and her style is SOOOOOOOO similar to his lol.


  • AgentX14 on April 9th, 2019 - 11:42am

     

    oh wow thats awesome

  • AgentX14 on April 9th, 2019 - 1:42pm

     

    Okay can whoever that is please stop it? I did not say ‘oh wow thats awesome’


  • AgentX14 on April 9th, 2019 - 1:44pm

     

    Yeah I know, I laughed too when I figured that out about Taya’s hair. XD


  • AgentX14 on April 9th, 2019 - 1:45pm

     

    Ugh. I hate fever. Especially on the second day running. ):


  • AgentX14 on April 9th, 2019 - 1:52pm

     

    Okay so which new hairstyle did you mean? I thought it was that one with the small ponytail which I love, but I just happened to be browsing her facebook and saw she now has a bob haircut and that’s really cute too!


  • lusa on April 10th, 2019 - 8:07am

  • Lusa on April 11th, 2019 - 10:37am

     

    yeah, whoever-this-is, will you please stop? I didn’t say “IKR”.
    anywho, Serena, I meant the lil’ ponytail. (p.s. I find it highly amusing thst in almost every discussion I have with basically anyone else about Hillsong, Taya’s hair comes up somehow. I’m like… huh.) TWO WEEEEEKKKKSS (assuming we do in fact get People a day early, which would make sense since we’re in the US) IMMA DIE OF IMPATIENCE no not really but I am hyped. 😀

  • AgentX14 on April 16th, 2019 - 6:25pm

     

    Yes! Taya went on a posting streak on her fb since I checked last.
    Did you know her middle name is Elise? Random.
    Lol, she has this hilarious video of her singing Shout to the Lord to the tune of Flashlight. XD Classic.
    Ugh there’s a clip of Let Hope Rise here and I wanna watch it so bad!
    Omygoodness, there’s a clip of her singing Your Love is Relentless and that hairstyle was perfect! I love the ponytail!


  • AgentX14 on April 16th, 2019 - 6:26pm

     

    Okay so she has this awesome video of Oceans through the years. So good. So so good. And comparing her hair over the years is also kinda fun. XD


  • AgentX14 on April 16th, 2019 - 6:27pm

     

    Excuse the desperate posting. I just bombed her facebook. (:


  • AgentX14 on April 16th, 2019 - 6:34pm

     

    To finish out, here’s a quote about Taya. Isn’t it right?
    “Grateful for this girl. She dominates off the stage even more than she does on it and that’s saying something.”
    -Joel Houston.


  • AgentX37 on April 17th, 2019 - 12:18pm

     

    hi


  • Lusa on April 18th, 2019 - 1:16pm

     

    I’ve seen it like four times lol. I even made my parents watch it for a family movie night… kinda to prove to my dad that Taya is not weird. (he still thinks she is though lol)


  • AgentX14 on April 19th, 2019 - 3:32pm

     

    Lol, that reminds me of my sister. I asked her if she likes Hillsong and she’s just like, “no.” I asked why and she said ‘because they look like a bunch of gangsters.’ I was like, “No they don’t! I mean, yes they do but they aren’t!” XD


  • Lusa on April 20th, 2019 - 3:03pm

     

    I love her too much lol. But tbh, you don’t even need to look at dates for videos from them… if you can find Taya, you can tell when it’s from. XD I keep laughing cos she’s always chaning her hair up. also, I got the DVD of Open Heaven/River Wild, and it’s awesome. another also, you ever check out the Hillsong blog? it’s cool. if you do, just type “outcry” into the search and look through the tour pics. it’s from a few years ago, but some of the pics are amazing. and hilarious.


  • Lusa on April 20th, 2019 - 3:13pm

     

    I wonder if the moderators have any idea who these people are lol.

    I wonder if they think we’re weird about this.

    I wonder if Taya and Ben are ever gonna have kids.


  • Lusa on April 20th, 2019 - 3:15pm

     

    well that escalated quickly lol.

    I seriously need to shut up now before I make a fool of myself.

    btw, do you ever feel weird for fangirling about all this? I try and keep this separate from a normal fandom, cos, I mean, it’s real peeps and not made-up characters, but I feel like I come off super fangirly.


  • Lusa on April 20th, 2019 - 6:51pm

     

    wait, we ARE talking about the same “Flashlight”, right? the one from Pitch Perfect???


  • AgentX14 on April 22nd, 2019 - 6:32pm

     

    Yeah, that Flashlight. And about Taya having kids, sometimes I do panic for a while and I’m like she would never quit singing for Hillsong would she if she did? I wouldn’t think, but you never know. *cue me and Lu having nightmares tonight*


  • AgentX14 on April 22nd, 2019 - 6:36pm

     

    She had a few pictures posted and was asking which is everyone’s favorite dance move. Some awesome pictures there. My personal favorite dance move of hers is that one where she puts her head down and idk how do you say this… throws her hair back and forth if that made sense. (:


  • AgentX14 on April 22nd, 2019 - 7:04pm

     

    Sitting here watching a rerun of Hillsong’s performance of Good Grace on Good Morning America today. So good.


  • AgentX14 on April 22nd, 2019 - 7:09pm

     

    She posted a clip of a video of her singing Forever (you know from Bethel Music). Amazing. I absolutely adore that song.


  • Lusa on April 22nd, 2019 - 7:16pm

     

    That’s honestly sorta true. I mean, SOMETIMES they do. (btw, is it just me or does Joel look REALLY strange with a beard?) and… between us, I really wish Taya would lay off all the eye makeup lol. XD
    anywho… my little sis likes them sometimes. It depends on the song. I think she kinda knows it’s my thing, but I do know that Joel is her favourite of them. we were laughing together a while back about him totally interjecting into Another In the Fire. XP


  • sonludus on April 22nd, 2019 - 7:53pm

     

    No, it’s not really the original Sonludus. Someone asked me to do something tho and told me to use this as a cover.

    well none of the rest did… I mean, almost all of them have kids. (on that note, JD’s kids have THE BEST NAMES EVER. Indie Bo and Sailor Rose. and I be like, oh my word.)

    dude I would cry.


  • Lusa on April 25th, 2019 - 2:27pm

     

    I keep looking at my world clock and I’m like “UUUUGGGGHHHHHH TIME GO FASTER” currently it’s only like 7:2o-smth am tomorrow (the 26th) in Sydney.. and it’s like 1:20-smth today (25th) here in AK….. COME ON PEOPLE (no pun intended I only realized that after typing it out)


  • Lusa on April 25th, 2019 - 2:30pm

     

    my bucket list:
    get social media when I turn 18
    go to Hillsong Conference

    .
    .
    .
    I’m still bitter about the People tour. and the fact that I CAN”T GO. every time I hear one of the songs from Live In Miami (you listened to that album? it’s earlier than I typically listen to, but only by a year — 2012 — and rly good) I want to cry because I’m like, “I wanna be a part of that”


  • Lusa on April 25th, 2019 - 2:34pm

     

    random question but what even is Taya’s range? cos she sings lower keys a lot (like a lot of her songs are in A and C, though personally I think E is a really good key for her voice) but still manages to sing SO DANG HIGH it hurts my voice to sing along with her!!! (I can sing in A and C both, unless it’s high-octave… which it typically is. ;-;)


  • Lusa on April 25th, 2019 - 5:46pm

     

    Maybe they actually meant tomorrow?

    Sonludus: oh. okay. hi anyway, though!


  • Lusa on April 25th, 2019 - 7:43pm

     

    Ser: as in, “the ground began to shake/ the stone was rolled away/ His perfect love could not/ be overcome”? cos honestly. I can never tag that song onto Bryan Johnson. I only ever listen to the Kari Jobe one lol. But mw yes I bet that was awesome. ya know what I wanna hear? I want Joel and Taya (cos for some reason they sound AMAZING together) to do Raise a Hallelujah. yes. I need this now.


  • Lusa on April 25th, 2019 - 8:36pm

     

    it’s out on their website. I guess Amazon isn’t getting it til tomorrow. or ya know, midnight. which I will TOTALLY be awake for (legit, I always end up awake late)… UGHHHHHHHH the pics tho. they’ve got a new header and… Matty’s bored, I’m not used to Joel’s beard, Jad is short, Tenni still looks like a nerd, where’s Jihea, and one of these days Taya’s adorableness is gonna convince me to cut my hair short.


  • Lusa on April 25th, 2019 - 8:42pm

     

    I just realised they’re on tour right now. it hurts.

    also just realised that my computer doesn’t like me trying to spell things the Queen’s English way.


  • AgentX14 on April 26th, 2019 - 6:01am

     

    Ohmygoodness we all know what today is! Unfortunately won’t be able to listen to it till next week. (me over here sobbing desperately) But still exciting!


  • Lusa on April 27th, 2019 - 12:02pm

     

    so, does nothing update over the weekend or something?


  • Lusa on April 27th, 2019 - 5:38pm

     

    SERENA!!!!! I’m on United’s site rn looking at lyrics (and who wrote them lol) and…. Clean??? first of all, great song, even if I’m not the hugest fan of vox chop, but… guess who one of the writers was? Taya herself! like, that makes all of two songs (Clean and Transfiguration) that she’s helped write. 😀


  • Lusa on April 29th, 2019 - 11:56am

     

    Serena, where’d you go? I totally blew this place up!


  • AgentX14 on April 29th, 2019 - 6:57pm

     

    No they don’t post comments on Saturday and Sunday. We were also gone at the biggest event (horse eventing) in the U.S. which was an absolute blast. Look it up. It’s incredible. I got a picture with Boyd Martin which has always been a bucket list thing for me. Not because he is eventing world renowned for being handsome or anything. I don’t think anyhow. LOL
    SO ANYHOW. It’s over and I have letdown and depression that is unbeatable. Seriously, I had such a blast. A new album does help.


  • AgentX14 on April 29th, 2019 - 7:00pm

     

    YES I KNOW. As soon as I saw she had helped write that song I was like, yeeeeeeeeeessss. That is super cool. As for her vocal range, I saw a video where someone asked her and she said she doesn’t know. I can usually reach her high notes, but singing high is my specialty. Some parts of some of her songs are a little low for me though.


  • AgentX14 on April 29th, 2019 - 7:03pm

     

    XD, yeah I love the new picture. Seriously, I am tempted once in a while to just chop my hair of and go with a Taya style (though, how to choose which one???) but then I let my hair out and look at it and I’m like, nope. Not happening. My hair is fairly exceptionally thick and long though. One thing I did notice was that Hillsong desperately needs a few more girls!!


  • AgentX14 on April 29th, 2019 - 7:05pm

     

    Yeah, it was that Forever. And your Bucket List is totally mine, except I have about 3 million other things on it. XD


  • AgentX14 on April 29th, 2019 - 7:07pm

     

    Just looking through her facebook pictures of the tour so far. I’m not crying. I’m not crying…


  • Lusa on May 1st, 2019 - 5:49pm

     

    my mom (who is always trying to convince me to lop my hair off) says that if I cut it short (like how Taya had it a few years back) mine’d get all curly like hers did, but tbh i’m not sure… I might have to give it a shot someday, though… I feel like I’d prolly cry if I cut my hair short, just cos I love it so much, but…


  • Lusa on May 1st, 2019 - 5:52pm

     

    also, ik. United legit has two (2!!!) girls: Taya and their bass player, Jihea Oh (who I love bc one, FEMALE. BASS. PLAYER. and two bc she’s such a tiny short lil’ Korean girl playin’ this big ol’ American Standard bass lol. plus she’s SUPER GOOD and she’s so bouncy too.). I think most of the gals are with Y&F (Melodie, Laura, Karina, Hannah) and Brooke’s crew (how I think of WOrship lol. they’ve got Brooke, Annie Garratt — who used to sing for United) and a few more…)


  • Lusa on May 1st, 2019 - 5:54pm

     

    some of the pics from the 2016 OUTCRY tour legit made me scream. there’s one of them where Taya (this was back when she had her hair all blonde and curly and just generally gorgeous… I never got over those curls lol) is just standing there holding her phone and she looks so horrified by smth, and Ben Fielding (the tall skinny dude who sins In Control and Be Still and Calvary and such) is just ther in the foreground looking like he’s trying to do the “smolder” lol. I died.XD


  • Lusa on May 1st, 2019 - 5:56pm

     

    I keep laughing at the new pic cos Matt looks so honestly unenthused lol. XD also, random, but Joel’s wife if hilarious. she’s done a couple blog thingies and omw I laughed, she legit talks like either a teenager or someone off of Tumblr. XP


  • Lusa on May 1st, 2019 - 5:58pm

     

    I feel like she’d probably be either the high end of Alto or the lower end of Mezzo-soprano…. but what do I know?


  • Kaylynne on May 2nd, 2019 - 10:54am

     

    Hey girls! How’s it going?

    Not to bomb your fangirling, but do you know that Hillsong believes in evolution (i.e. “So Will I”) and supports organizations with (highly) questionable morals? Not telling you what to like at all, I was just wondering if you were aware…


  • Lusa on May 2nd, 2019 - 11:48am

     

    Kaylynne: well, here’s the thing… that particular song definitely needs some work lol. but I’ve read some of their stuff (like blog posts and such) and I don’t think it’s like that. second… like, World Vision? cos my church (as a whole, not my family specifically) also supports them, I think…. my fam personally doesn’t, though.


  • Lusa on May 2nd, 2019 - 11:49am

     

    Oh, so, Serena! totally not what we were discussing AT ALL, but one of my friends got to meet the guys from Dude Perfect. and they gave my youth group a shoutout.


  • AgentX14 on May 2nd, 2019 - 11:51am

     

    Kaylynne: Hi! The line I believe you’re referring to is ‘Evolving in pursuit of what you said’ or something like that. That is not referring to evolution per say. But things have ‘evolved’ in a different way. Over the years, horses have gotten bigger for instance. Monkeys have not turned into humans, but that’s not what the song is talking about. Joel Houston himself said this: “i believe God created humanity out of the dust.. and breathed his breath/Spirit into us.”


  • Lusa on May 2nd, 2019 - 12:01pm

     

    Serennnaaaaaaaaaa do you know what WorshipTogether is? IF you do, you probs know there’s some sort of subscription involved… yeah, but you can ALSO access a ton of stuff (lyrics, chord charts, bloggy thingies) WITHOUT a subscription. INCLUDING>>>> (drumroll) A PODCAST!!!!!! and they interview different worship peeps, like Melodie Malone from Passion, and their most recent one is with Taya!!!!!!!!!!!! I screamed (I didn’t even know there WAS a podcast!!)


  • Lusa on May 2nd, 2019 - 12:02pm

     

    now excuse me as I go hide in the corner with my coffee and listen to a podcast. 😀


  • AgentX14 on May 2nd, 2019 - 12:04pm

     

    Kaylynne: Just to clarify if it sounded snappy, I’m not mad at all and I absolutely respect it if you feel differently.


  • Lusa on May 2nd, 2019 - 12:20pm

     

    It makes me laugh that even though this podcast is headed with her married name, the host didn’t even TRY to pronounce it lol. X’D
    Kaylynne and Ser: horses… breeding has made em’ get bigger, and more breeds have developed and such… (I’m a horsey nerd…….)


  • Kaylynne on May 2nd, 2019 - 12:59pm

     

    Both of y’all,

    Yes, that’s the song. And yeah, things have a evolved in that way, but don’t you find it strange that it says “in PURSUIT of what you said”? Like, as if after God spoke the words, He had to wait for creation to evolve into what He told it to? Idk.

    And, no not World Vision. I tried to type it before but the mods for whatever reason didn’t approve it. Basically, Hillsong supports homosexuality (sorry if that’s a trigger word or something mods). And that I am not impressed with….


  • Lusa on May 2nd, 2019 - 1:01pm

     

    [Taya to a guy from Nashville about Australian critter sounds] “You’re thinking, one, ‘am I gonna get attacked?’, two, ‘are drop bears real and are they gonna drop?’, and three, ‘how big is that thing?!'” (I died laughing)


  • Kaylynne on May 2nd, 2019 - 1:05pm

     

    …continued

    And some of the things they say just don’t line up with the Bible. I’m not trying to start an argument here. I am just trying to understand why so many good Christian teens fall for the group. I’ve never been a fan of them, even in the *beginning* but now it seems they are showing their true colors.

    Please don’t take anything I’ve said in offense. I’m not saying that its a sin for you to like them or anything dumb like that. I just figured you didn’t know.


  • Lusa on May 2nd, 2019 - 1:12pm

     

    Ser: (you don’t mind me nicknaming you, do ya?) okay, so, if you have any kind of podcast app (I have this purple one that idk what it’s called…. you can access ALLLLLLLL the WorshipTogether podcasts. On the website you can only get a few of them.


  • Lusa on May 2nd, 2019 - 4:33pm

     

    UGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHHHHH!!!!! worship podcast = happy Lu. 🙂


  • Anonymous on May 2nd, 2019 - 8:12pm

     

    Funny, Zach brought up that same subject today.


  • Lusa on May 2nd, 2019 - 8:31pm

     

    uh, Kaylynne, I actually just recently read a blog post by the Hillsong senior pastor, Brian Houston, about how Hillsong as a church does ABSOLUTELY NOT support homosexuality. not trying to argue, either.


  • AgentX14 on May 3rd, 2019 - 7:07am

     

    Lu: Yeah I do know about worshiptogether. I don’t have a podcast app because, honestly, I listen to so few that I just listen to what I can online. I will though listen to the one with Taya if I can get it. The sad thing about worshiptogether is that I used to be able to access pretty much all the Hillsong songs for free to and I guess they cut that off now. Yeah well.


  • AgentX14 on May 3rd, 2019 - 7:09am

     

    Lu: and sure you can nickname me. No different from me saying Lu. XD


  • AgentX14 on May 3rd, 2019 - 7:10am

     

    Yeah, that’s basically what I meant by evolving. As more and more people breed horses to be bigger (or smaller, we also have a 26 inch pony), they start, as a whole to be generally bigger and as time goes on, more and more so.


  • AgentX14 on May 3rd, 2019 - 7:20am

     

    Lusa: speaking of which, do you still ride? I have an adorable little pony that that I’m teaching how to jump. He’s only 13.3 hands. I finally resigned myself to being short and bought myself something my size and I gotta say, it’s fun having a horse my legs can reach past halfway down the stomach on. XD I have the toughest time finding stirrup leathers though. Kids leathers are to short and adult leathers are too long.


  • Lusa on May 3rd, 2019 - 7:14pm

     

    Ser: are you ever gonna get the AIOC again? (btw, we aren’t allowed to use Agency code here, are we?) and… I’m out. don’t be surprised if my posting is spotty for a few days.


  • AgentX14 on May 6th, 2019 - 5:19pm

     

    Lu: Not exactly sure what you mean by agency code… but yeah, I hope to get the AIOC sometime this month. If things don’t work out for this month, I probably won’t get it till July. But I hope it works out. The problem with this year is that I’m saving up for something else but my birthday is coming up so I’m hoping for someone to get me a month or two. (someone usually does)


  • Lusa on May 6th, 2019 - 8:11pm

     

    (Kay I can breathe) well #1, apparently that particular song IS supposed to be referring to “Theistic Evolution” or some such… and I just be like, dangit Joel. (tho that’s the only thing I’ve ever seen like that so i’ll let it slide)… also, I just use WorshipTogether for chord sharts and such, tbh, and I CAN PLAY NONE OF THE NEW SONGS AAAAAHHHH. WEIRD chords. and.. I haven’t ridden in so long tbh…


  • Lusa on May 6th, 2019 - 8:13pm

     

    Ser: you can get that particular podcast epi right on their website, that’s what I did. (it’s so good… tho there were a couple times she said smth and I was just like, huh? lol.) dyk that JD of all people officiated at her wedding? I died. XD and her talking about how all the guys from United are all protective of her… okok I’ll be quiet now.


  • AgentX14 on May 7th, 2019 - 11:45am

     

    Lu: lol yeah I did get to listen to it then. Soawesome.


  • Lusa on May 8th, 2019 - 6:10pm

     

    so many things that made me laugh/squeal… like her friendzoning her hubby lol. XD I died. and tbh one of the things I love about Hillsong is just how awesome the team culture is. like, I love how much they’re all just like family (and I wish my church’s teams were like that……………)


  • AgentX14 on May 9th, 2019 - 11:13am

     

    I know. I can only dream about that kinda team happening in my church.


  • Lusa on May 9th, 2019 - 12:46pm

     

    from the perspective of a Front-Of-House person, I can really say that the term “creative team” as opposed to things like “worship team” and “media team” and et cetera is WAAAAYYYYYY more welcoming. cos I mean, the person running the lyrics is playing a part in leading worship too, ya know?


  • AgentX14 on May 9th, 2019 - 6:29pm

     

    I’m just catching up on the comments in the aioclub and whoa. the mess on 65 was real. I wanted to let you know that you aren’t alone. I don’t know that I lied on the club (though its possible) but there was a point a few years ago where pretty much anything I said was a lie. It was my response to everything: to get out of trouble or impress someone etc. Anyhow, it really comforts me when I see that other people had the same problem so I thought I’d tell you. Kudos to you for telling everybody.


  • AgentX14 on May 9th, 2019 - 6:51pm

     

    Lu: Just a suggestion here, I may not be thinking realistically or anything but, Jake came on with his game right when a time of turmoil was going on. I guess now wouldn’t be the time for the agency to step in and bring the minds back to God with something similar? I realize it would take A LOT of footwork and commitment, but it just occurred to me as I read that if ever there was a time to bring that back, it’s now.


  • AgentX14 on May 9th, 2019 - 7:16pm

     

    I found Seas posts on here. I’m sorry if I shouldn’t have looked. Sometimes I’m unsure how much a part of the agency I am with me being on and off and please do tell me if I’m intruding too far. Yet, I’m glad I found it because I plan on praying desperately for her. I hope the agency can stay alive without her and if there’s anything I can do to help, lemme know. I agree with your the agency has turned to a Bible study thing. Maybe if we could pull it off the thing I suggested above would help?


  • lusa on May 9th, 2019 - 8:34pm

     

    Ser: You got the Club again!!


  • agenx37 on May 10th, 2019 - 1:03pm

     

    come to the academy!


  • Lusa on May 10th, 2019 - 7:15pm

     

    idk when this’ll post, and imma say it on the Club, too, but you’re just as much a part of the Agency as I am, or as X49 is, or as Mia was. (Oh, I didn’t tell you… Mia isn’t doing the Agency anymore) so that’s totally fine. and… yeah, you may be right (though of course sometimes it was, you know, Jake himself who was in the center of the turmoil lol… *cough cough* the TobyMac thing. ;P)


  • AgentX14 on May 10th, 2019 - 7:46pm

     

    I’m just rooting through People and formulating my opinion of it now so you get to hear it whether you want to or not. XD I usually wait a few weeks to actually decide if I like it or not because my reaction at first is always ohmygoodness I love it whether it’s good or not.
    The songs I think of first when I think of this album are Good Grace and Clean so I think those have gotta be my top two. As for below that, Here’s to the One, Ready or Not, Highlands, Holy Ground.


  • AgentX14 on May 10th, 2019 - 7:48pm

     

    The others come in no particular order under that. I never thought I would say this about a Taya song and don’t kill but Whole Heart has started kinda getting on my nerves or something. Either way, it was a good album. Now let me just go cry again because they’re touring the fricking USA and I can’t go see them. We were just talking the other evening about visiting Australia sometime though…


  • AgentX14 on May 13th, 2019 - 7:57am

     

    Ugh, don’t remind me. Yeah, that’s true. I’m considering rallying the agents on here and bombing the place if I can come up with a good enough thing to do it with. Can you let me know on the agency page on the club (not on here because I wouldn’t want anyone to find it) the specifics of the code Jake used? I remember somewhat, lucky that I actually managed to be on there at that time!, but it was long enough ago that it’s fuzzy in my head. I was thinking I might play with it a little and use it.


  • AgentX14 on May 13th, 2019 - 7:58am

     

    Speaking of which, did you wanna post lessons sometimes on here? If so, how often?


  • Lusa on May 16th, 2019 - 11:49am

     

    Why is it so important to you? What are your ideas???


  • AgentX14 on May 16th, 2019 - 5:36pm

     

    Not sure what you mean ‘why is it so important to you?’ Basically I don’t care what you do on the club, but I’ve wanted to hit this agency with something big for a while to get the agency name more ‘out there’.
    And also btw, if you’re asking why I care period…I fear that both agencies could die with Sea leaving and this one being a little shaky on and off. I would hate to see that happen. At the very least, we should keep it for Jake. Or because of Jake. Whatever. You get what I mean.


  • AgentX14 on May 16th, 2019 - 5:40pm

     

    Taya just posted a video of her singing So Will I. Omygoodness. She is just so good, she makes me tear up every time. If I could just be brave enough to use my voice like she uses hers, I wonder what I could do. Now excuse me while I go practice that song. XD


  • AgentX14 on May 16th, 2019 - 5:59pm

     

    And disregard the comment about Whole Heart because I just listened to it again and heard it in a whole new way suddenly. I now love it.


  • Lusa on May 24th, 2019 - 10:45pm

     

    I did NOT say “why is it so important to you”!!!!!


  • Lusa on May 24th, 2019 - 10:51pm

     

    People by the numbers: my song order: Another in the Fire, Highlands and Ready or Not tied,Whole Heart and As You Find Me, Clean, Might Sound Wild, Good Grace (and by extension Echoes, imma just jam those two back together where they’re meant to be), Holy Ground. Matty Crocker’s great and I ususally love his stuff, but other than that being the only real easy congregational song, Holy Ground isn’t one of those “play on repeat” songs for me.


  • Lusa on May 24th, 2019 - 10:53pm

     

    songs I need Taya to sing: What A Beautiful Name (I know she’s done it at some point!), her and Joel need to team up and do Raise a Hallelujha, she needs to do Goodness of God (Jenn Johnson, I mean common, Ben Fielding wrote it anyway!)


  • Lusa on May 25th, 2019 - 6:52pm

     

    ya know what would be legit? Taya singing Goodness of God (the Jenn Johnson one), cos I mean, Ben Fielding wrote it anyway, and he’s one of the Hillsong guys… and that song is just so awesome. And I hold to my conviction that if Joel and Taya ever did Raise A Hallelujah, it’d be SO GOOD.


  • Lusa on May 28th, 2019 - 9:08pm

     

    oh also, totally random but I need to know where Jihea went because I spotted her in ONE video from People and she isn’t even in any of their new pics or anything… where is my #tinybassplayer??!


  • AgentX14 on May 29th, 2019 - 2:22pm

     

    I think Jihea was on Good Morning America with the rest if them…


  • AgentX14 on May 29th, 2019 - 2:26pm

     

    That would be awesome. I actually just watched a video of her singing What A Beautiful name and she was totally losing her mind the whole time. XD I’ve always wanted to hear her sing You Raise Me Up by Josh Groban. I really like that song, but it takes a very talented woman to sing that because it’s obviously written for a man and is insanely low one minute and insanely high the next minute when women attempt it. But Taya could do it if anyone could.


  • Lusa on May 29th, 2019 - 9:07pm

     

    Oh I bet she was. and yeah, she’s got a pretty big range for a worship vocalist (usually jazz vox have the bigger ranges, I guess) and… ooh, what if she did Holy Ground by Passion??!?!? THAT BRIDGE THO.


  • AgentX14 on May 30th, 2019 - 11:46am

     

    That would be so totally cool! We should get together a list and send it to her and be like, “please do this for your biggest fans?” XD


  • AgentX14 on May 30th, 2019 - 12:13pm

     

    Just watched a new video on Taya’s fb and Jihea’s hair is fire engine red! Taya also appears to be letting her hair grow out which is awesome but I’m of the firm opinion that if she wants to do that, she needs to dye it a different color lol.


  • AgentX14 on May 30th, 2019 - 5:08pm

     

    Lol, never fail, the beginning cords of Grace to Grace make me think I’m actually listening to Rachel Platten’s Fight Song. XD


  • Lusa on May 31st, 2019 - 1:39pm

     

    Um. wow. nobody’s gonna miss her now lol. XD and.. yes. Idk if the color would be a huge deal, but my conviction is that she needs to do it curly again. Why does Grace to Grace make you think you’re listening to Fight Song? the intro to Beautiful Exchange always makes me confuse it with Like Incense/Sometimes By Step. do you ever listen to the old stuff?


  • Lusa on May 31st, 2019 - 1:41pm

     

    I swear, Serena, you set me up for success. “Live up to your hair” has become my new life inspiration. XD


  • AgentX14 on May 31st, 2019 - 6:24pm

     

    The very beginning chords of Grace to Grace just always remind me of Fight Song. I’ll be sitting there singing “like a small boat in the ocean…” and then it finally changes.


  • AgentX14 on May 31st, 2019 - 6:25pm

     

    Here and there I listen to the old stuff but they just weren’t as good before Taya. XD


  • AgentX14 on June 5th, 2019 - 7:47pm

     

    The other day in the car I was singing O Holy Night (because why not?). It was just me and my sister and I was singing the evermore part like Taya does with two instead of one. My sister looked at me like I was crazy and I had to play the song to convince her that I was right. I gotta admit, I was going to just sing it the traditional way there, but I forgot how to, after listening to Taya’s version so often! So the second evermore came out with a little bit of a question mark lol.


  • AgentX14 on June 5th, 2019 - 8:00pm

     

    I was just catching up on the comments on the main page and Mia’s farewell verses… I’m not crying, there just happens to be a lot of dust here right now.

    Okay, I’m crying.


  • AgentX14 on June 6th, 2019 - 7:25am

     

    lol, I’m glad I inspired you! XD


  • Lusa on June 10th, 2019 - 12:45pm

     

    So Will I. That part where it talks about “a work of art called love” I always sing how Taya did it live. Lol I feel that way sometimes…. I have a soft spot for the old stuff though, especially I Heart, cos that was one of the first Christian musics (new word there lol) I ever heard.


  • Lusa on June 10th, 2019 - 12:47pm

     

    I’m so jealous of those people at my church who got to go see them. I legit had to hold back tears for a second when they were telling me about it. tho they were telling me about Taya jumping around with a tambourine and that made me smile.


  • AgentX14 on June 10th, 2019 - 6:01pm

     

    Lu: I have to hold back tears whenever I hear about anyone hearing them. It’s just so not fair. But one day. One day I will hear Taya sing live, whether it’s at Hillsong church, conference, or concert. I will hear her sometime. I keep promising myself that.


  • Jake on June 11th, 2019 - 5:03am

     

    Yo, girls, what’s up? Someone told me you’d be here.

    Jake: wait, what… ???


  • AgentX14 on June 12th, 2019 - 4:45am

     

    Lu: ugh, my club just ended.


  • AgentX14 on June 12th, 2019 - 2:25pm

     

    Jake: are you… the Jake? Who used to be on the club?


  • Lusa on June 12th, 2019 - 10:54pm

     

    Jake: how’s your health stuff been? also, since when do you greet people, especially me, with “yo”? and have you checked in with X49? she should be around here somewhere. one more thing, could you please remind me what your very first Agent codename was, before X47?


  • Jake on June 14th, 2019 - 5:00am

     

    @lusa: sorry, lol. I didn’t think this would post. I’ve been trying to post this for weeks, and the mods kept not approving, I guess. I thought this would be like every other time. Anyways. Sorry again 🙂


  • Jake on June 14th, 2019 - 5:02am

     

    Oh, and I’m sorry to bust in on you like this. Very ungentlemanly. I should have knocked first.


  • Lusa on June 14th, 2019 - 11:42pm

     

    so… can you please answer my other questions, because OH MY WORD. It has been WAY too long. how dare you drop a bomb like that and LEAVE?!?!?!?!? (jk, I’m not mad for real, just teasing.) but seriously. ANSWER ME JAKE. *stares at you*


  • Jake on June 17th, 2019 - 12:28pm

     

    Calm down. *gives you a hug* don’t flip.

    I don’t wanna say a lot here…it’s pretty public. Literally anyone could read this… 🙁


  • Jake on June 17th, 2019 - 1:46pm

     

    Oh and I don’t want it to be a big deal that I’m here, so don’t announce it to the agency, ok? There’s a lot going on in my life right now and I just don’t want a big thing.

    I hope all 3 of my replies are going through.

    I’ve missed you.


  • Lusa on June 18th, 2019 - 11:53pm

     

    Jake: Ok, listen. Imma be honest here. I’m super super skeptical. we’ve had a ton of really annoying impersonatpors hanging around here lately. so if you would please just tell me your ORIGINAL Agent name, that would help. also, hate to be rude, but I don’t hug boys. ;-; just sayin’. but I appreciate the thought.


  • AgentX14 on June 21st, 2019 - 7:16pm

     

    ANYHOW. Now that we got that out of the way, (great job by the way. I now officially never wanna get on your bad side XD) I’m severely stuck on ODAG right now. Even When It Hurts. Feelz.

    I love Bobbie so much. I was watching one worship service and Taya was wearing these glittery sparkly purple bell bottom pants. Bobbie was up there with all her energy talking about how she loves church and why she loves church and suddenly all in one straight sentence: “We are a church who loves possibilities. Do we not love possibilities? Taya, I love your pants. Amazing.” Taya was up on the stage trying desperately to not burst into laughter and failing miserably.

    Do you have a problem with your notes disappearing on the bible app? It seems that unless someone else puts a note on, they disappear after about a day. If I post something else under them, they show up again.


  • AgentX14 on June 25th, 2019 - 7:23am

     

    Is it just me or did you think about it too that Brooke in the Starts and Ends video seems to be taking after Taya in her clothing choices. XD


  • AgentX14 on June 25th, 2019 - 8:10am

     

    You read the Hillsong blog on their website right? Well I just happened upon a article with Taya’s top 5 favorite Christmas songs and on the bottom was a picture of Taya at maybe 4 or 5 with her sisters and omygoodness she was the most adorable child ever!


  • AgentX14 on June 28th, 2019 - 6:30pm

     

    Oh shoot! I just backed into my dad’s prized vehicle with our gator and made a sizable dent in the door. Dad, bless his heart, is just trying to make me feel better about it but I’m shaking all over and totally torn up. Ugh. Bad day.


  • AgentX14 on June 30th, 2019 - 5:39am

     

    I discovered that my notes on the bible app are not gone on my page, just on the main one where everyone’s activity is grouped together. No clue why.


  • AgentX14 on June 30th, 2019 - 12:08pm

     

    Yay! You’re coming back this week!


  • AgentX14 on July 2nd, 2019 - 4:58am

     

    Taya posted a video on her fb, labeling it ‘the greatest miracle is a changed life’. It showed her career before Hillsong and after. It looked like she was a rapper or something similar before Hillsong. The video showed her up on the stage rapping her heart out with another band then panned on to her singing Whole Heart with Hillsong. So good. Tho, I gotta say, her voice wasn’t made for rapping. It didn’t even really sound very good.


  • Lusa on July 2nd, 2019 - 7:05pm

     

    lol Miss Bobbie is the best. and YES I’ve seen that blog post!! have you seen the ones from OUTCRY in 2016? THE PICS ARE LIT


  • Lusa on July 2nd, 2019 - 7:22pm

     

    DID YOU READ THE NEW POST?!?!?!?! ugh I wanna listen to that podcast epi so bad… oddly enough I’ve never listened to the Worship & Creative podcast….


  • Lusa on July 3rd, 2019 - 12:17pm

     

    Ser, help me! My mom said she’d take me to the concert in Oklahoma, but that it would have to be my entire birthday present AND most of my Christmas presents…. but here’s the thing. she said that if I decide to do this, she’d get us VIP tickets.. which honestly I dunno if I like the thought of that, cos I’ve always hated coming off as super fangirly…. I need your opinion here.


  • Lusa on July 3rd, 2019 - 7:20pm

     

    that’s funny though, because her voice is otherwise one of the most versatile out there. oh hey, while I was in Peru, one of my friends (one who I consider my irl “best friend”) kept singing Not Today under her breath and she sounded just like Taya. it was weird. but omw, this girl has the most beautiful singing voice ever… possibly tied with Taya for my favourite voice, honestly. but mayhaps I’m biased.


  • Lusa on July 3rd, 2019 - 7:21pm

     

    also, look up Kaylee + Erica… I just accidentally found them today, but they’re so good!


  • AgentX14 on July 8th, 2019 - 6:08pm

     

    I did see the outcry post. So cool.


  • Lusa on July 10th, 2019 - 3:51pm

     

    that one pic tho of Taya with that horrified expression and Fielding over there trying to do the smolder lol…. it’s my fav. tour things lol


  • AgentX14 on July 15th, 2019 - 5:03pm

     

    Yeah and that one where Taya’s hair is framing her face and there’s red light behind it that makes her look like she has red hair is gorgeous too.


  • Lusa on July 16th, 2019 - 5:07pm

     

    yussss it’s so pretty… and I love the one of Jihea in the back of a huge amp or something (I still dunno what is was lol) and omw she’s SO CUTE with glasses!!! Tho, Jihea is pretty much adorable all the time, so…


  • AgentX14 on July 20th, 2019 - 11:30am

     

    She is adorable. But WHY is the conference recap still not out???


  • Lusa on July 29th, 2019 - 7:27pm
