Sarah Williams | Bridals

Sarah is a married woman and I am SO excited to share pictures from her bridal session!! This STUNNING bride had the most beautiful off the shoulder lace dress, and lush florals + flower crown created by the amazing Dayspring Design. She wanted to include her precious golden-doodle, Sam in her bridal session and I am so glad that she did!! He was so handsome sitting next to such a beautiful bride. His white fur and pink bow-tie totally brought the look together ;). The Garden Arts Center was a perfect location for Sarah’s session and we ended at out a golden wispy field as the sunset. It was such a beautiful and fun evening! Enjoy looking through Sarah’s bridal session!

I’m changing things up with today’s blog post. Today is a personal post about someone + something I am very passionate, excited, and expectant about, but first let me give you a bit of a backstory.

Meet my husband, Dusty Joplin.

10857215_898933650117865_1948391411531942334_oThis guy is my best friend, my teammate, and the funniest guy I know.

Dusty and I met at Church on The Rock in Lubbock, Tx in the winter of 2009. Since then, I have been blown away by this man and fell head over hills.. well maybe not the day I met him… but not too long after ;). Dusty became my husband in the summer of 2012, & since then we have made a lot of great memories, & gone on some wild adventures together – some fun and some not so fun, but necessary and victorious in the end.

My husband is a quality human being. He is child-like in his fun, but wise – strong- and influential in his leadership. He is imperfect & makes mistakes, but he is humble in his short-comings and is eager to have a teachable heart. He is a man of integrity, and confronts the hard things head on without fear, & with a heart of resolve and restoration. He is forgiving, gracious, and likes to shower things with humor. He is encouraging, a dreamer, and one of my favorite qualities – he is a worshiper.


Dusty has a deep belief in the Lord’s goodness, & it is not shifted by circumstances or seasons – which I have so appreciated as I’ve struggled more with this concept at times. He has such a beautiful perspective of the father’s heart & is not motivated towards love by works or performance which I can find difficult to do. My husband is a worshiper with every ounce of his being. He has such an inspiring and healthy perspective of how the Lord views him – us – and how great God’s love is for us all, which I believe allows him to love others well and with influence.

I believe God has used many area’s of Dusty’s life to mold him, shape him, and establish him “for such a time as this”. Like I said, my husband is a dreamer. Since I’ve known him he has had a dream to “Change the world”. We all know that to change the world, we start by influencing, loving, and leaving things better than the way we found it right here in our “places” and in our home. Changing the world starts with one person loving and changing another person’s life for the better. I am so excited to share a way that we can all partner together to change the world around us!! 



My husband has had the privilege of being the Worship Pastor at Church on the Rock for the past year and a half. This is his dream job, guys… something he didn’t think would ever happen. The Lord so graciously allowed his dream to come true, and in a very speedy fashion. Since stepping into this role, he has lead a team of volunteers with grace, humility, inspiration, encouragement, and grace for others and himself as nothing is ever perfect or easy. This team of volunteers is INCREDIBLE. They pour out countless of hours preparing & leading God’s children into worship. They carry vision, purpose, authority, and they honor the Lord with their hearts and offering of their gifts in worship. They serve, they sacrifice, they pursue the father’s heart, & are aware of the responsibility that they have to lead people into the throne room in genuine praise. Not a single one of them are perfect, or have it all together in life, but they come humble, surrendered, and expectant, & I believe that is one of the reasons why the Lord shows himself so beautifully to us as we worship him.

This team is called “pursue worship” and will be creating their very first worship album this year!! This is the exciting news… they are having the producers of Bethel Church’s worship album(s) to come and do a live recording of their album (hopefully in the fall). They are currently raising $50,000 in order to do this exciting project & get songs of hope, and of the gospel into the cars, iPhone’s, CD-Players, and onto the computers of people all around the world. In a very easy way, we can all be a part of something bigger than ourselves in sending the good news of Jesus Christ out in the most relatable and quickest way possible – through music. Starting today through Tuesday, May 24th, every dollar given will be MATCHED UP TO $10,000!!! This is HUGE as it will not only guarantee the first album to happen & be a success, but it will equip Pursue Worship to continue to create albums filled with impactful worship music that will change hearts & draw people to Jesus Christ for the years to come! I am SO EXCITED to see dreams come to fruition … to see the Lord pour himself out & show His favor & blessing to this team & what will be created. I believe the Lord is 500% behind this, and the songs that will be recorded will go out and literally influence & “change the world”. What an exciting thing to be be a part of, right?!?

Although I just did a major husband brag… all of this has nothing to do with him. And although our Pursue Worship team is stupid talented, has beautiful hearts, and are people full of Jesus, this has nothing to do with them. All together- We are just the vessels. They are being obedient with the vision, dream, and tools that the Lord has graciously placed in their hands. They are being his hands and feet.

It’s all about Jesus. The whole purpose of this album, is to send out the love and hope that Jesus gives. It started being about Jesus, it is currently about Jesus, and it will ALWAYS be about Jesus.


This is a good thing to partner with. You can never go wrong with partnering with Jesus and his Kingdom. Partnering with sharing his love, hope, grace and mercy. Can I encourage you, if you feel inspired, touched, or impacted to partner with the making of this album – will you considering giving to the project?? Today through Tuesday, every dollar will be matched, so there’s no better time to give than now!! Your gift is double the influence and impact!! Follow along with Pursue Worship and be praying for this team as they go on this Journey making the heart of Jesus known through music. Connecting the people of God to the heart of God.

Visit their website to learn more about Pursue Worship, the Album, and giving!

Visit their Facebook to keep up with what the Lord is doing through Pursue Worship, Live Album Recording dates, and more!


The Church on the Rock worship team, Pursue Worship, is currently in the process of writing, arranging, and recording a LIVE album, and we want YOU to be a part of helping us take the music and the message around the world! Daniel Mackenzie and Gabriel Wilson, Producers on Bethel Music’s Award-Winning, “For the Sake of the World”, “Tides” & “You Make Me Brave” albums, have already agreed to partner with COTR and the Pursue Worship Team, to help us create and capture the highest quality LIVE recording possible. Daniel and Gabriel are two of the best in the world, and we believe that with their help (and yours), we can create something that will have a eternal impact on the Kingdom of God, not only in Lubbock, TX, but around the world.

Why “Pursue Worship”?

Worship is where our pursuit of God, meets His pursuit of us. Our heart’s desire is simply to connect the people of God, with the presence of God, and in turn see lives changed. James writes that “if we draw near to God, He will draw near to us.” In other words, if we pursue God, He will pursue us. That is the purpose and vision of Pursue Worship; to give people the opportunity and the vocabulary, to draw near to heart of Jesus.

Why become a Pursue Partner?

Plato said, “Give me the music of a nation, and I will change that nation’s mind.” With today’s technology, music has the ability to take the Gospel of Jesus around the world faster than we could ever dream. The songs on this album are filled with the message of freedom, hope, unity, and surrender; songs that may have already impacted your life in a powerful way, such as “Free Indeed”, “Let It Begin”, “I Will Wait”, and many more. Every penny given to this project will go towards making the name of Jesus known and loved around the world. There is no greater investment, than in the Kingdom of God!
