Corrie Ten Boom once said, "Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God." We know that is true, but it's not always easy, is it? You'll read below about some trials Chonda Pierce is going through, and also how our friends Joey and Rory Feek continue to trust God in the midst of recent challenges.

One thing that has helped Joey and Rory is singing the hymn, "I Need Thee Every Hour." Several Homecoming friends have recorded hymn projects in the last couple of years (Gaither Vocal Band, Guy Penrod, the Nelons, Michael W. Smith, etc.), and for good reason--those time-tested lyrics continue to ring true, bringing encouragement to so many of us.
