|Longing For Eden (the band)|

We've moved and have a new name!
In 2010, we decided to try to get the "gang" back together. Jeanne Miller, Gene Miller, Kevin Yoder, Lydia Yoder, and I had all played on a worship team together back in the 90's and there was such a neat chemistry among us. So, we formed a band and chose the name "Out Of The Ashes". So much had happened in all of our lives and the name "Out Of The Ashes" was quite appropriate. Marie Williams and Eric Turner have since joined the band and have added such depth and talent. We are now in the process of recording our first CD which will hopefully be released in the spring of 2014 and it became clear that we would need to change our name because there are a few other bands out there with the same name. So, the search began. We wanted a name that had some significance and defined who we are. A timely word from my Pastor's wife encouraged us to look forward..toward our destiny and one day, the name would come. And it did! Our new name is "Longing For Eden". We chose this name because we are coming to realize that God simply wantes to commune with His creation...as it was in Eden. What's really cool is that He "longs for Eden" more than you or I ever will and we want to take this simple but profoound message of God's abounding grace to the world through our music! Jesus died for you and I so we could come home, so we could love Him face to face...as it should be....As it was in Eden.
