3. Favorite Periscope Broadcast | Worship with Brandon Holt

Brandon Holt is anointed! I heard about his nightly worship broadcast from Scott Williams. I watched for the first time this week. I was amazed at his voice and couldn’t stop watching. Brandon has a heavenly voice and sings all the popular gospel and inspirational songs. Viewers can make requests. I’ve seen people requesting prayer and testifying [in the comments/chat section]. It’s a really nice experience. You can follow Brandon on Twitter >> HERE. He tweets out links to his broadcasts.

    I absolutely love the sketch challenge. It seems like so much fun. I am officially following Brandon Holt…I had no idea that was even on periscope. Love it. Oh and Rhonna Designs is one of my all time fave apps…perfect for quick on-th-go images.

      Tiffany, thanks for the comment. I am really enjoying the sketch challenge. So much so, that I purchased new art supplies yesterday. You will love Brandon Holt. He is amazing. He sounds like Fred Hammond. I’m still working my way through Rhonna Designs, but I’m positive it will become a staple in my “toolbox.”

  3. Reginia Cordell

    Oh wow! I’m from Little Rock as well. You look very familiar. I think you may be lived near me as kids and went to school with my sister.

    Mattie has a lot of good information. You should also check out her sister and another guru < tons of good information.

      Reginia, wow. It’s great to see a fellow Little Rock native. We must connect to see how our paths have crossed over the years. Girl, I love Regina…Love, LOVE her. Maya Elious is great as well. I found Mattie and Maya through Periscope. I’ve been a follower of Regina since last fall.

      Let’s definitely talk about Little Rock soon!
