Mindy Gledhill Concert for Christian and Stephanie!

My cousin Liz and I are posing for the camera (even though our make-up is all cried off from the touching concert!) It was an inspirational night listening to Mindy Gledhill sing and especially Christian and Stephanie's little girls, Claire and Jane, sing along with her. They also did a beautiful tribute to Doug Kinneard. He was the other pilot that was with them in the crash and passed away the day after.
Stephanie and Christian's little girls, Claire and Jane, flew in from Utah to sing with Mindy Gledhill on Saturday night. Mindy was a close friend to Stephanie and she flew down to Arizona to put on a benefit concert to raise money for the NieNie Recovery Fund! It was an incredible concert!
My Aunt Kristie, Mary Nielson (Christian's Mom and my Mom's cousin), my beautiful Mom, and my Aunt Patty! It was so fun to go and support their family and raise money for a good cause! 
Does it look like my Dad hogs baby Ava? He is such a great Papa to all of his grandkids!
Steve and I got to get our picture with Mindy Gledhill after the concert and she signed our cd's! She is SO GORGEOUS! She has such a great voice and really fun and cute personality!
We had to get a picture to show that we were all there! Brianne was there too... but she was off talking to someone when we took the pic! Sorry Brianney!
Courtney- a.k.a. Cjane Run (Stephanie's sister) came up on stage and sang "Smile" with Mindy Gledhill. It was rather hilarious! She reminded me of Kimmy on My Best Friends Wedding!
Claire and Jane held hands and sang along with Mindy! They had the whole audience in tears. It was precious! They are such cute little girls!
We were so excited because we got to sit in the front row with the Nielson family and the Clark family! It was such a great night! I highly recommend getting her cd! She has an amazing voice and her music is both inspirational and fun! We love you Christian and Stephanie and Doug Kinneard!


  1. The concert was a blast! Even if one of my most embarrassing moments happened there. Thanks for taking the pic without me!!! :(

  2. I had really looked forward to going to the concert. I feel bad I missed it but we needed to be at Sam & Jenn's Diwali Party. That was important to Berkeley & Atticus(maybe even Sam & Jenn,??) and it was a lot of fun, too. Sometimes it sure would be nice to be able to be in two places at one time. Good blogger coverage, Erin!! You're a real pro.

  3. That is so wonderful that people are helping the family in so many ways. I will have to look up that singer. I have not heard of hger before.

  4. I am so glad you went to support that. I wanted to go so bad but wasn't able to. Thats awesome you got front row seats! hows that?! Great pictures.

  5. That was such an awesome night, I am so glad I got to be there with family! Love the pictures - you do such a great job on your blog.

  6. bummer to miss it...wait, WHAT? i have to know brianne's embarassing moment.

    I LOVE Mindy...Gates had her CD on his mish so I took it when we got married--she IS beautiful!

  9. I loved that night. It's one of those times when you feel overwhelmed with compassion, charity, the spirit,... everything. Good post.
