Our Need for Healing

This is one of my favorite podcasts I’ve ever recorded. I got to talk to Sr. Miriam Heidland, who is an amazing woman of God, and I got to do it in front of an amazing audience of priests and deacons at the Priests,… Continue Reading “Our Need for Healing”

Cheese Packers

As we finished this week’s episode of They That Hope, my friend and guitar player John Paul Von Arx came into the studio. “Hey, can you turn the camera off for me?” I asked. He looked at my iPhone on the tripod. “It wasn’t… Continue Reading “Cheese Packers”

A Night of Hope… and Healing

The “Night of Hope” that was live-streamed last evening from Franciscan University exceeded our wildest expectations. There were 30,000 individual viewers, over a million page hits, and many who didn’t watch it last evening are now watching the video and sharing it with friends.… Continue Reading “A Night of Hope… and Healing”

The Mercy of God

Though I’ve been delinquent in updating the site, Outside Da Box and the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston are doing a great job by creating new videos every month to help teens understand a different element of the Catechism, and I’ve the honor of writing the… Continue Reading “The Mercy of God”

The Little Ukulele Boy

Did you know in Hawaii that the story of “The Little Drummer Boy” is re-told as “The Little Ukelele Boy?” Probably not, because I just made that up. But if there was a story about “The Little Ukulele Boy,” it would star Kyle Heimann.… Continue Reading “The Little Ukulele Boy”

A Great Advent Book for Kids

I don’t normally do this, but sometimes you come across something too good not to share. And when it’s made by people you know, that makes it even more special. Theresa and Charles Pobee-Mensah just wrote a book together called, “Bible Characters for Advent.”… Continue Reading “A Great Advent Book for Kids”

I’m fasting from myself

When people ask me about my music, my usual joke is, “I’m a big fan of me. I have all my CDs.” The truth is that I rarely hear my own music unless 1) my kids ask for it, or 2) it comes up… Continue Reading “I’m fasting from myself”

Crazy. Busy. Good. (With cool video at the end!)

  Life. Is. Crazy. But in many ways, crazy good. Bobby just got out of surgery yesterday for his leg. Those who have followed by blog might remember that in February he broke his femur because of a weakened bone. So they put a… Continue Reading “Crazy. Busy. Good. (With cool video at the end!)”

I Got By With A Lot Of Help From My Friends

Regular readers of my blog (as well as Facebook friends and Twitter followers) know that for the past two months I’ve been fundraising for my newest CD, “The Gospel Accordion to Bob Rice.” It ended at 11:59 PM last night and the final total… Continue Reading “I Got By With A Lot Of Help From My Friends”

Psalm 95

This is the one “true” accordion song off the upcoming CD. What you hear is what it is (except I can play it better—it was a challenge to do a good take between napping baby, loud kids, etc!) Just a boy and his accordion,… Continue Reading “Psalm 95”
