BILLY LORD

BL website 2

Billy was born in Chicago, IL.  His dad was a football coach so they moved a lot when he was growing up.  At a young age he realized that it wasn’t enough that his parents believed in God.  He knew that at some point he would have to make their faith his own.  So as best he could understand that at age 7, he prayed a simple prayer one night as his parents tucked him into bed.  He prayed, “Jesus come into my heart.”  God heard and answered that prayer.

Sports were a big part of Billy’s life.  In high school, he was an all-conference football player.  After high school he went to Liberty University on a football scholarship where he graduated with a degree in Business Administration.

He was married for 22 years with two sons when an unwanted divorce devastatingly ended the marriage.  The heartache and depression that followed was the hardest thing he had faced.  But God helped to put the pieces back together and he found a deeper understanding for other’s brokenness as he came to grips with his own.

He began to experience an even deeper faith and renewed sense of God’s calling on his life.  During this time he met Cassie.

CASSIE LORD

CL website

Cassie was born on Vance Air Force base in Oklahoma.  She grew up the oldest of 5 children.  Her family moved often in her childhood.  She came to the Lord at age 5 while living in government projects in Enid, OK.  The manager of the projects would gather up the children and hold “Sunday School” in the office where he would tell them about Jesus.  Cassie traded her make-believe friends for the most real friend she’s ever known.

And the simple message she was taught in that office about loving God and loving others, is the message that has shaped her entire life.  She is more passionate than ever about this love that changed her life.

Cassie has experience many hardships in her life.  She was molested at a young age.  She became a widow at age 21 when her husband, Randy, died from injuries sustained in a car accident.  Their daughter, Mandy, was only one.  She has known the pain of an abusive marriage, the heartache of divorce and the struggle of being a single mom with two children.

Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (NIV).  Because Cassie believed this truth so fully, she has known God’s joy and peace in all circumstances of her life.

Cassie was single for 11 years before she and Billy began dating.

In addition to being a singer / songwriter, Cassie is also a life coach and substitute teacher for Henry County.  She has an extensive daily “texting” ministry that encourages people in their walk with Christ.
