Our guests are the multi-talented
Christian recording artists The Woodsmen Quartet.
These talented singers agreed to sit down
exclusively with Your Life Matters prior to a
performance here in Westport. We were assisted in
the interview by Rev Mike Bartlett of the Westport
Christian Church. You will also hear their music
during the interview.
Driving down the road on a hot summer afternoon, Tim
Woods heard the voice of the Lord. He said it
sounded like God was sitting right in the cab of my
truck with me. In years past Tim, his four sisters
and Mom traveled as the “Singing Woods Family”.
As most families do, they got bigger and schedules
get harder to work with so after 25 years of singing
together the “Singing Woods Family” stopped.
Tim started a successful trucking company but
working lots of long hours in the process took his
eyes off of what was important, Jesus Christ.
Tim said that he let everything come between him and
his relationship with God.
Years later Tim’s youngest sister was diagnosed with
having brain tumor. It shook him to his very
core. “My sister needed prayer and I could not
pray for her until I prayed for myself.” as Tim
voice breaks with emotion. So he got on his knees
and prayed and asked he Lord to forgive him and to
restore the joy of his salvation, and as Christ
promises in His word, he did restore Tim.
Not long after he had rededicated his life to the
Lord, Tim heard the voice of the Lord calling him
back to the music ministry. God laid on his heart
to put an all male quartet together. Through
this ministry they could reach peoples hearts.
He first contacted local gospel deejay, Jim Hutson,
who has traveled and sang for years. Jim remembers,
“Tim called and told me that God has laid it upon
his heart to get a quartet together and for me to
hire whoever I needed to put the all male quartet on
the road.” now some time has passed and the
group looks and sounds different, the goal is still
the same to uplift Christ, to show joy and love to
bring honor to his Holy name
Full Speed ahead
The Woodsmen Quartet have been traveling and singing
just over three years. They have shared the
platform with the best in gospel music, such as, The
Gold City, The Kingsmen, Signature Sound, Dixie
Melody Boys, and Dove Brothers, but most important
to this ministry are the lives that have been
touched--- from a grandmother who needs a healing
touch from the Master physician to a father who
needs to rededicate his life to the Lord, to maybe a
teenager who gave her life to the Lord at a Woodsmen
Qt. concert. It all starts with a song.
