Christmas Tour

"...Til he appeared and the soul felt it's worth."

We are about to wrap up our celebration of Emanuel, God with us, and the immeasurable worth demonstrated when he showed up for us. We've said it in person, but thank you John T. for sharing your story with our audiences, and for being such a sincere witness to the beauty of the Christmas Story. And finally, thanks to everyone who showed up for us in real tangible ways by sitting in seats and singing along. We have one more stop in Clearwater, FL, and then we will head to Missouri for a Colbaugh Family Christmas.

Merry Christmas!

In Galviston I overheard Aaron practicing his pedal steel in the hotel room and at first thought it was REALLY GOOD, heavenly Muzak
Ben, also capable of heavenly Muzak

I found a set at Target that converts any table into a ping-pong table - here the boys try out the three round tables in Indy, and a configuration of 6' tables in Springfield, MO


  1. Next year you should have a stop in Virginia, many of us were hoping to see the Christmas series! God Bless

  2. And I thought last year was a blessing and it was but this year, I am so greatful. I use to actually wonder, how could I honor Lloyd and Nita for their years of caring for the "least of these." When you asked me to be a part of this year's tour and I saw Springfield on the list I knew I had to make it there. I also knew it was not what Lloyd would seek or desire but the rest of the world need to know about the Colbaugh's of the world who live out there Christian life by making a difference in the lives of others. Thank You Thank You Thank You. God Bless and Merry Christmas

  3. Hey Sara! I went to the show in Indy and loved it! It was a great way to start the Christmas season. I've been a fan of yours for 5 years but it was the first concert I've been able to come to. It was such a joy to hear you sing live.
    My only disappointment was that my family and I waited awhile after the show hoping we'd get to meet you. We'll be at your May concert in Louisville - hopefully we'll get a chance to meet you then:)
    Merry Christmas!

  4. Dear Sara,
    Thank you so much for quickly personalizing the CD's and songbook. They arrived yesterday in time to give out for Christmas. We wish you, Troy and your family a wonderful Christmas. Your ministries mean so much to us.
    Cliff and Debbie

  5. Hi Sara,

    My wife and I only recently discovered you, and are just delighted to find a Christian writing so thoughtfully, broadly and with such poetry!

    Would you ever put up a blog post about the music you listen to? Are there other Christian artists whose lyrics you particularly like?

  6. This doesn't have much to do with your blog, but I have a question about one of your songs. I am playing Generations st our church if just a couple weeks, and I'm not real sure about some of the chords. I was wondering where I could find those, or if you could post them. It would be a real big help! Thanks and God Bless!

  7. Hi Sara- I hope you are doing well. I was first introduced to your music at a mothers conference in Rochester about 4 years ago- when I first became a Christian. I have followed you and your albums since- I love your music. I am now a stay at home mom with the side job of managing a band for my dear friend from our church. (The Rock; Minneapolis) ( We have goals of sharing the Gospel through her music, and also encouraging fellow Christians through songs/concerts. I know you are incredibly busy- but it keeps coming to mind to ask your advice on how we can get some momentum going here. My friends band is hugely talented, and being in the same genre as you, in the same location, I'm just taking a shot in the dark and asking if you would have time to talk with us and tell us how you got going. our website is Is there a time we could speak on the phone, or meet up with you, or even your manager somewhere? We are humbly teachable and would treasure any of your advice.

    Because He lives!
