Welcome to the FAQ Section

Thanks for checking out my FAQ section! Due to my schedule craziness, it is often impossible to respond to each of the inquiries I receive...but I definitely do want to answer as many of your questions as I'm able. Here are some of my responses to the most frequent questions I receive. I'll try to add to this as time permits. Thanks for your interest! God bless you & your grooving...


Career / Ministry

Hey Norm,

I'm a worship bass player, too. How do I get people to take me seriously?


Hey J.D.-

I'd say make sure that everything within your control is dialed in; playing, gear, reading (depending upon the needs of the particular "gig", of course), being responsible, on time, a fun hang, etc., etc. If all of those considerations are happening, then prayerfully proceed through the doors that God opens. If a door closes, it's quite possibly the Lord protecting you from something you're not intended to be involved with. In my own life, I've found that God is supremely capable of opening doors to where He wants me to be. The big challenge is being cool w/ His timeframe (usually differs from mine) and methods (again, usually not what I had in mind). :^) Gotta run! Have a good one...Norm
