Lisa founded the non-profit organization, Scarlett's Closet, in memory and honor of her granddaughter, who passed away of cancer in 2011.
This ministry provides care bags for families whose children are admitted into the hospital unexpectedly. Each bag contains various personal care items, a pen, a journal and a Bible.
In August 2018, Lisa published a book called Courage and Red Wagons. This book is dedicated to Scarlett, who showed Lisa what real courage looks like. Through this ministry, Scarlett is touching more lives than most people do in their entire lifetime.
David is a Christian concert artist and worship leader from Fayetteville, GA.
For many years, David’s family, “The Akins”, traveled around the country singing and preaching the good news of Jesus Christ together.
As David's family has expanded into new ministries of their own, David has begun the next chapter. He is continuing to follow Jesus into a brand new solo music ministry. He is not only writing new songs, but also planning to re-release many of his older songs that people have loved so much through the years.
