A Night with Brandon Heath


So a few weeks ago I got an email. Instead of telling you about it, I'm just gonna show ya...

Hey Kat!  My name is Brandon Heath.  I'm a Contemporary Christian artist.  I found you on Pinterest (yes I admit I go on there every once in a while) as I was trying to find something cool to do with old pallets and saw Mitch's ceiling that he did.  Then I started reading your blog.  Just want you to know I'm a fan of your creativity and may even start that ceiling project soon.  Tell Mitch I want to be him when I grow up.  Thanks, Brandon

ps. I saw that Mitch liked Matt Redman so I thought he might know who I was.  Now I feel like a stalker.  

Did your jaw just hit the floor? 'Cause mine totally did after I read that email for the first time. Mitch was over at his friend's house at the time and I think I sent him like 27 texts in 30 seconds telling him what just happened. Pretty dang cool, isn't it? So this was my reply to Mr. Heath.


Hey Brandon! Um...first of all, I can't believe you emailed me. Of course we know who you are! Secondly, I'm glad Mitch isn't the only guy who peruses Pinterest from time to time;) Glad we could inspire you. The pallet ceiling was a great project and we think it turned out really cool so I totally encourage you to give it a shot. You really can't lose--it looks awesome and it's free. Win/win. 

I just saw that you're coming to Lancaster in March (now who's the stalker!) so maybe we'll have to check ya out in concert. Thanks for stopping by the blog and for shootin' me the email. Made my night:) Take care.

So a few emails later, Brandon offered Mitch and I tickets to see him in concert and I also asked him if I could give a couple away on this here blog. Thankfully he loved my idea so here we are. One of YOU are coming with us to meet Brandon Heath in concert! He's coming to Lancaster on March 10 along with Mandisa and Laura Story for the 3 in 1 Tour. So I'm giving away two meet and greet tickets to one lucky reader of MLST. And this is how it works.

For one entry, "like" Maple Leaves & Sycamore Trees on Facebook. And leave a comment at the end of this post telling me you're a liker. If you already like the page, just leave a comment and tell me.


And because I want as many people as possible to know about this giveaway, for an extra entry "share" this post on your Facebook page and leave a separate comment telling me you did. Just go to the end of this post and look for the FB icon.


I really want to get the word out about this, so can you guys please help me out?? Brandon is so awesome for doing this, isn't he? I'll leave you with this: a YouTube video of Brandon doin' his thang.
GOOD LUCK!
