Happy #FASFriday ! Rehearsal, Rehearsal, Rehearsal! That has been the word of the last few weeks! We have been working hard on the new music to bring you an FAS experience like never before. The album release has been occupying most of our time here in           FAS-Ville, as we campaign for the last portion of funding the new music. Don’t forget.. You can pre-order the new album right now from our Pledgemusic campaign, all while picking up some gnarly FAS exclusive gear! Get to it!


For this weeks thought of the day, I have a simple and  short  suggestion. It primarily stems from a challenge to myself. REST! 

    This is a crazy time it seems for all of us. Along with the new music, jobs, family, obligations, etc.. One word comes to mind. Tired. Speaking for myself... I’m tired. I could probably speak so boldly as to say that you are too. Our society is a Go, Go, Go obsessed culture that has simply forgotten the art of slowing down and valuing rest. We have glorified a “Hustle” mentality. As a result, family, relationships, health and many other things suffer. This is an age where everyone is reachable 24/7...and are almost expected to be so as well. 

 Don’t get me wrong.. a good work ethic is a valuable discipline... but so is knowing when to disconnect and to rest.

We find ourselves so consumed with things that must be done right away that we forget how to prioritize. We rush, and are not able to give what really matters our full attention. In the end.... nothing is being done well. 

    Put away the phone for some time. Really disconnect from work, to-do lists, task oriented thinking, and Rest! Use that time to re-connect with God, loved ones, and recharge. This is immensely important! 

  My challenge for you today, is to really set aside some time on a regular basis to make sure you can recharge. Your mind, your body and those closest to you will thank you for it! 

 -For I will satisfy the weary soul, and every languishing soul I will replenish.” Jeremiah 31:25

 -Better is a handful of quietness than two hands full of toil and a striving after wind. Ecclesiastes 4:6
