Super Sentiments from Six Other States

Last month, we ran an article titled "Super Sentiments from Six States," with letters from California, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia. We just assembled six more recent emails and noticed afterward they were from six other states:
Passed on "Addicted To Christ" to my friend. She's a former addict and now a Christian rehab director here in Michigan. She LOVED it — said she is playing the YouTube clip for the girls in rehab on Monday. She's an awesome lady. She really loves the ladies she teaches and helps. It's her job, but it's not a job to her.

I just want you to know how helpful ApologetiX is to me. I grew up completely unchurched, at age 18 not knowing the connection between Christmas and Easter. Completely blinded. These songs are deep in my mind but now are redeemed. When I hear a tune in the store, I'm redirected to biblical thoughts. Bless you and your important ministry.
I was the youngest of five, so I got to hear all kinds of music, mainly because I didn't get my very own radio until I was around 15. So what I did listen to was "overruled" by my older siblings or other people. But, I have to say because of that I was given a wide range of music to listen to. Plus, I had been "beating" on things since I was 7. And it allowed me to have an ear for drums as I got older. My mom says that when I was around 3, they asked me what the Beatles sang and I repeated, "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah" LOL.
To this day, I still remember the apple on the label of the 45's, and my sister says they were her favorite band. I made her a copy of all the Beatles songs you have done and she is enjoying them because it gives her new, great memories of her favorites, plus helps her to find out what the songs you parodied are about. Thank you so much.
I've started listening to the new music, and as always, you guys do them well. It is so refreshing to hear the music I loved, now with lyrics I can love. I just finished "Broke A Loaf of Bread" and remembered that that "Locomotive Breath" was originally recorded in quadraphonic. My brother-in-law had a quadraphonic player and I remember sitting in the middle of four speakers listening to this song.
Anyway, your song brought back many memories, and now I can listen freely to your new words. Thanks for the music. And may God continue to bless you with Christ-honoring lyrics.
I wanted to take a minute to write and thank you for these parodies. Your lyrics have challenged me over the years, and I really appreciate that. I appreciate that you always include scripture in your lyrics. I will be praying for you guys.
Thanks again for all that you and the band are doing in reaching out to people in hopes that they will know that God loves them and desires a relationship with them. Press on, brother!
