The Stutzman Family has been singing together since 1993. The girls started in giving programs in Iowa prison institutions at the tender age of 3, and have been singing ever since, and this is one of their best. Travelling around the US and Canada, they have written and picked up a collection of both new and older songs for this project. Being involved in prisons and with hurting, wounded souls of every kind, they have learned to incorporate hope and freedom into their music, done with the tight family harmony that makes Southern Gospel music work. This recording was produced with a desire that can be felt right through your earphones…. A desire to glorify Jesus Christ and make Him known.
Stephen and Dorcas , Tanisha, Gianna, Jevan, Jalon, and Karina made their home in Kalona Iowa where they ran a small business for 15 years. In 2006 the business was sold and the family headed off into ministry, singing, counseling and teaching. They moved to NC, near Ashville, where they made their home near the offices of Door of Hope and Gospel Express, the organizations they had worked under since 2000. They lived there for 3 years, made several recordings, developed material for prisons, and began reaching into Canada with their music. In 2010, they launched a ministry of their own called Strait Paths Foundation, that they currently work under. This ministry is dedicated to reaching the shattered lives of the world (and the church), both through music and other forms of ministry.
In 2011 the Ministry Headquarters was relocated to Lancaster, PA, where the Stutzmans now reside. They are anticipating the marriage of the first of their children. Aside from the production of music, they also do some writing and material production, along with many teaching seminars.
