Hello. My name is Kevin.
I mostly write music. Sometimes there are other things.
- Happily married (6+ years). We don’t have kids and do watch a lot of Netflix
- California native, Idaho once, Upstate NY grad, Washington state now
- I used to sing God songs in front of lots of people — what they call a “worship-leader”
- Business and art is raging inside me, one day I hope art wins

Hey, sorry to leave this in your reply box, but…
Thank you for following my blog – “A Way With Words” @
I’ve been having some trouble with WordPress. I’m still posting daily. Keep visiting and I hope to have things worked out shortly.
hi Kevin! Thanks for following and nice to meet you 🙂 The more I look at your posts, the more I want to visit San Luis Obispo!
I just realized I never responded to this! Thanks for checking out my posts as well. San Luis Obispo is a special place! Since you are a beach person, make sure and squeeze in Morro Bay! It’s just north of us, and very, very cool.
Here to say thanks for the visit. Appreciate it.
Kate and Steve Hobbs
No problem! Thanks for stopping by yourself! Let’s make sure and stay in touch.
Hey Kevin – Thanks for your helpful suggestion to add a different photo on my blog heading. I want to invite you to drop to see the new look and claim your prize –
Awesome. Thanks! By the way, I might be changing my blog layout soon. I’ll be looking for your advice (though I have nothing to give but much gratitude).
No problem. For you, I can work gratis. It’ll look good on my resume. 🙂
I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. http://adelineohvelarde.wordpress.com/2013/04/15/the-versatile-blogger-award/
Thanks for popping over to my blog! Just one comment here: why would you ever want to leave SLO? My husband, former Marine, was stationed in Camp Pendleton and explained to me how SLO is paradise 🙂
I know right? SLO is amazing. I think it was rated as “the happiest place on earth” by someone knowledgable in something. It’s great, but time again to move. I definitely recommend SLO to anyone looking for a good small town with great people.
Nice blog and story. Thanks for dropping by my blog!
Thank you! I’ve been really enjoying the pictures on your blog. Keep up the good work!
Let me know when you move to Rochester. I want to treat you to a Wednesday night large pizza (only $4.99) at Captain Tony’s.
Deal! That sounds wonderful. The East Coast pizza experience is pretty high on my “to do” list. Thanks, Tony.
Thank you for following my blog 🙂
Thank YOU for stopping by as well. Ever so kind.
I love CdA! Glad I found your blog … following 🙂
Thanks a million! Back atcha!
I’m rellay into it, thanks for this great stuff!
Was hiking in the freshly pressed woods and came across your blog. As a now part-time worship leader moving into the non-profit world, I can relate to many things you have shared. Thanks and hope all goes well with your move(s).
It’s nice to meet you. Thanks for stopping by! I’m looking forward to reading your blogs. Let’s be friends?
well, I find your blog very interesting. But I ask, why is it so important “to know” Jesus? Why not Buddha? Why not Love? In my mind Jesus’ message was one of love, so the name and the emotion go hand in had; but when you say know Jesus, it seems that the meaning changes, because .. Who can know him? Through studying the Bible? Maybe. If you can interpret it and somehow have the key to understand it 100%. Who can be so intelligent to do that? Can you trust other mortals to be up to the task? I don’t think so.
So maybe… The question should be something else. Which is it? we are all looking for answers even though we don’t know it. Probably that journey is a very solitary one and the answers and not in the four walls of a church.
Hey – join the movement!

YOU got it!
I ran across your blog from another site, and since Kevin is my favorite number, right after 12 and 43, I thought I would follow you. Plus, I really like the worship leader at my church, Matt Papa, so I figured you’re probably pretty cool.
So I love reading your posts and I wanted to nominate you for an award. I’m pretty new to how it works but I explain it in more detail in my post about it (link below) which features your blog in it!
All the best, I look forward to reading your answers for my questions!
I’m a little late, but thank you! You’re too kind.
Hey Kevin. I’ve nominated this awesome blog for an award it’s surely already outgrown–the Liebster Award. Check out my 11/1 entry. Cheers!
Allllright! Thanks, Mike. You’re too kind. Congrats on your award, too; you deserve it!
Aww shucks! (But thanks.) You have a really great blog…just want you to know how much I truly enjoy it. When you go big, I’ll be proud in the background.
I have awarded you a “Blog of the Year Award.” To read the details, visit –
Participate if you feel so led. Otherwise, just enjoy the blessing, my friend.
Nice! Thanks, thanks, thanks! Your award is very well deserved.
Such a small world! I have been offline for awhile, but saw that you have moved to ROC and are working with Leah at 585 Magazine. I know Leah and her family and work with Leah at Roberts. Great people! Welcome to Rochester!
No way! That is so cool!
And welcome back to the interwebs.
