The Family Heritage

Some Glad Morning.. the first words in an amazing song known around the world…  “I’ll Fly Away”.  You might have heard it in “O’ Brother, Where Art Thou?” being sung by the amazing Alison Krauss or “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”  Or maybe at a funeral or on a bus or in church or…well there are endless possibilities of where you might know it from, as it is literally known

Brumley wrote “I’ll Fly Away” and “Rank  Strangers to Me” and about 798 other songs.

The Glad Morning Initiative™

This is where Glad Morning comes from.  Since they are the first words of her legacy and they are a wonderful message, they surely resonated with us.   But… we like to think of Glad Morning as now, every day, not in the future somewhere, so here we are … The Glad Morning Initiative™

In the belief that everything has power and counts we chose to give back by doing just that…giving something back, even if it is one person at a time.  After all, it takes a million individual folks to create that million.   The Glad Morning Initiative™  is now in our world.
