Hey Ya'll!

Hope you had a glorious Spring weekend!  The temps are climbing in AZ now....high 90's (last weekend 104!) and it won't be long before we'll be above triple digits non stop until about October (yikes!). So, hallelujah, I'm enjoying every moment of Spring in the Arizona desert....glorious!

Ok ya'll, today I've got my brag on...I unashamedly admit it!  So many of ya'll have the most adorable photos/stories of your grands and since I don't have grands YET, I just gotta tell you what my son is doing. But first, though, I must say that I am so blessed to have the most awesome son and daughter, Chris and Katie, and doubly blessed to have a sil, Bryan who's just like a son to us and who serves our country in the U.S. military and dil Laraine who is such a blessing to our family!  Chris, Laraine, Katie and Bryan......You make us proud....I am one blessed mama!  Yay God!

Caution:  You are now entering the brag zone :))!  
My son Chris is a voice over artist and has been blessed with a growing career in that field.  You've probably heard his voice on many national and regional commercials such as McDonald's, Planet Fitness, Google, Microsoft and many others as well as Travel Channel, Kenneth Copeland Ministries, Franklin Graham/Samaritan's Purse, MGM Grand Hotel Las Vegas, and the voice for pop artist Beyonce' tour - just to brag about name a few :))!  BUT, I just gotta share the one ad that's my fav.....uh, maybe you might recognize it....

                             Chris & Tim

Yep!  My son's voice is the voice you hear with Tim Tebow in the Jockey stay cool commercials currently running!  Soooo, with a big smile on my face and  in the most proud braggadocios mama's way everrrrrr, I invite you to listen to a sample (click below) of Chris and Tebow in two national Jockey stay cool commercials !  Whoot! Whoot! :)))))

Who'd of thought it!  Two Godly guys with entirely different talents, callings and careers, both raised in Jacksonville Florida (ironically) and their "voices" would cross paths now......God did!!!! God thang, ya'll! God thang!

I'm sure Tim's mama couldn't be any prouder of her boy than I am of mine!  God's using our/His guys for His glory....and that's what it's all about to me! 
Me and Chris at 3 yrs old going to church.
(I cannot believe I was ever that thin!)
Bryan, Katie, Chris and Laraine.....My blessings!

Well, thanks for listening and letting me brag a little lot, :))!

Hope you have a wonderful week!

In all your ways acknowledge Him,
and He shall direct your paths.
Prov. 3:6

Oh, I almost forgot....when I do have my grand-babies, IT'S ON, let me tell ya.....I'm gonna plaster my whole blog (almost) with my cuties, just you wait and see!! :)))


Hugs and Sweet Blessings!

Pin It!

Years ago I wouldn't have thought of voiceover voices as a career, then I met someone who did a video game character voice. Glad you shared/bragged about your son. His voice does sound familiar! Awesome! Blessings!

Debbie said...

Good morning! Can't tell you how neat I think this is! No wonder you are so excited! Who wouldn't be? Brag away...haha....I love it! Have a wonderful day! HUGS

It seems you have plenty to brag about...and why not?...enjoy!! Joan

Unknown said...

Mark me down as a fan! What a neat profession! I know how it is to be proud of your adult children. There doesn't seem to be much of a venue for bragging on our "big" kids, but a mama never stops feeling proud, especially when she sees God doing something mighty good in her child's life. Thanks for sharing! I enjoyed that.

Sandy said...

That's soooo cool, Jackie! Now I'll be able to tell everyone I know that my blogging sister Jackie's cute Christian son,Chris, is the voice on so many commercials! I'd be bragging too if I were you! May the Lord continue to prosper both Chris and Tim!

How neat Jackie!! It would be hard not to love BOTH of these guys!! :)


elaine @ peace for the journey said...

Way cool! I might just brag on your son as well. And to think... my path has crossed paths with his momma.

Blessings, sweet one.


BARBIE said...

How cool is that! I do recognize your son's voice.

Our son and daughter-in-law have been trying to have a child for two years...so I am with you, when I finally get that first grand it is on!!

Oh I love this on your son and Tebow...we are fans of Tebow and McCoy and Bradford...I have written post on these three Godly men, who have gone against the tide of sports by exalting the name of the Lord.

I will be sharing this with my son...who is in high school sports...and yes, both Godly men and yes, both important in the kingdom...and yes, both proud mothers...in fact that is the point of my post today.

So enjoyed this post and welcome back.

Jackie, I'm so glad you shared your son's work with us. I loved every minute of it!

Beth E. said...

That's awesome! I don't blame you a bit for bragging. I'm now a fan, too! :-)

Karen said...

I think it is written somewhere that moms have the right to brag at any time...well, if it's not, it should be...we just can't help ourselves!

Nothing wrong with being proud of our kids...thanks for sharing this! I feel certain your children are very proud of their mom!

RCUBEs said...

Awesome sister Jackie! Thanks for introducing us to your talented son's voice! I admire those who are courageous to use what God has given them back to Him! I pray that more opportunities will come his way!

God bless you always.

chris said...

Hey Mom, I'm probably more proud of you than you are of me!

I Love you Mom.

Nezzy (Cow Patty Surprise) said...

You go right ahead Miss Jackie and pop those proud mama buttons!!! You have every right to.

God bless ya and have a fantastic day sweetie!

This is sooooo cool!!! :o)

Just Be Real said...

Oh wow Jackie, this is soooo cool. Please do brag my dear. This is an opportunity not to miss. Blessings and hugs.

Kathleen said...

I dare say you've got GOOD REASON to brag. I can only imagine the route your son has taken to garner a career that is so rich on so many levels - sort of like the best of the entertainment industry without all the pitfalls.

Cora from Hidden Riches said...

I'm so glad you stopped by my blog today. . . just so I could meet YOU! I find it amazing that we can be in this bloggy world and not cross paths with another beautiful soul! But here we are!

And yes, you deserve all the bragging rights. This is just so neat. It's funny how you never even think about the voice in an ad, except when it is a famous voice that you recognize from other places.

So glad I stopped by today. I'll be back!

Farm Girl said...

I made it over here, that is so awesome. Your son has a awesome voice. I bet you are so proud, I know I would be. What a great job!
Thanks for stopping by and I got to meet you.
Bye for now,
Kim@ My Field of Dreams.

Hi Jackie! That's so fun! I love your son's voice!

Wanda said...

Hi Jackie, now that's certainly something to brag about. Love the inviting photo of the rocking chairs on the side of your blog. Makes me want to grab a seat :)

Andrea said...

Awesome! Thanks for sharing!
Blessings, hugs, and prayers,

Farida said...

It is indeed a blessing to have a son who does things for His greater glory... Looking forward to post about your grandchildren. God bless :)

Chatty Crone said...

I haven't heard from you in like ever. Glad you are back.

And that is so cool with your son - congrats. That is awesome.


Homeschool on the Croft said...

Wow... feel free to brag! You have definite bragging rights, methinks ;)

And can you please say Hi to your son-in-law. I pray for 'your' soldiers every day along with 'our own' (UK) soldiers, so unknowingly, he has been included in my prayers. Blessings to every one of them x
