I am Kevin Lynn Woodall, from Hubbard, Texas. Christian Country recording artist, husband and father of six. My wife, Trecia, and I have, through much prayer, started CrossW Ministries to spread the Gospel of Jesus. Our journey has not been an easy one, but The Lord has blessed us immensely and we want to share those blessings with others.
My life was a country song. Bad decisions, a failed marriage and a long line of just being "stuck on stupid," for lack of a better phrase, defined me. I had been around the world in the Army, but never found the true love and forgiveness only Jesus Christ could give. I literally was "looking for love in all the wrong places."
My passion for music lead me to front a rock band for about five years, but when asked to front a local country band, I took it. Singing and playing guitar in the country band took me back to my youth of growing up in a small central Texas town. In the country band, I had the opportunity to open for great bands that had influenced me growing up...The Marshall Tucker Band, Restless Heart, Little Texas and The Bellamy Brothers. I was having fun, but I wasn't happy. I didn't aspire to be famous, I have six kids and I had to work for a living. I did want to write and I did compose a few songs, but it was usually challenging and I never felt inspired.
A pastor asked me to play at a local Cowboy Church that was starting up. I was hesitant, as I said, I wasn't exactly a Saint, but I finally gave in. I had been saved at 12 years old, but I had turned to the world. I hadn't been to church regularly in 20 years. My wife had asked, but I didn't want to face God with what I was doing. I eventually quit the country band and only played in the church band. I began to write Christian country songs. The cowboy church band truly blessed me, but I was not turning my life completely over to the Lord and I quit playing completely. God was still working on me though because I was still inspired to write Christan country songs.
My second marriage was on the verge of collapse. It was then and only then, that I realized that I had to stop, to change, to give in to the call. With the help of my ever loving, wonderful, forgiving wife and a few true friends, I again found the Savior of my youth. I was born again...again. Hallelujah! Music flowed, words appeared and for the first time in my life, I know love, the greatest gift of all. My call, I believe, is to spread God's love and grace through testimony and music to anyone who will hear. I am truly blessed with wonderful children and a beautiful loving wife. I will be recording my first project soon with God's grace and mercy.
...but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen. 2 Peter 3:18 NKJV
