More About Kay and Andy
Kay is best known for more than 15 years as a tireless advocate for those living with mental illness, HIV&AIDS, and the orphaned and vulnerable children left behind. She has traveled to 19 countries, calling the faith community as well as the public and private sectors to respond with prevention, care, treatment and support. She speaks from the standpoint of Christ’s love and power to heal, in the context of her life raising a family, her ministry and travels; and the crucible of her own bouts with cancer and mild depression, and her son’s life-long struggle with mental illness and eventual suicide almost three years ago.
Kay Warren, cofounder of Saddleback Church with her husband, Rick, is an international speaker, best-selling author and Bible teacher who has a passion for inspiring and motivating others to make a difference with their lives.
Kay is author of several books including her newest Choose Joy: Because Happiness Isn’t Enough (Revell, 2012), Say Yes to God (Zondervan, 2010), and coauthor of Foundations: 11 Core Truths to Build Your Life On with Pastor Tom Holladay (Zondervan, 2004). Additionally, Kay has also written for Christianity Today, Purpose Driven Life, CNN.com and The Washington Post, and has been featured in Newsweek, Reader’s Digest, Guideposts, Sojourners, POZ and Today’s Christian Woman magazines, among others.
Some people were born to be on stage. Some people were made to have their name in lights. Some people were born incredibly attractive. Some people read. Andy is not any of those people.
Andy was born and raised in the rich musical climate of Austin, TX and then went to College at Belmont University in Nashville to join the legions of songwriters in the country music scene. After graduation, he spent a number of years as a staff writer for publishing companies while playing guitar on the road for singer/songwriter Jill Phillips (whom he happened to be married to).
In 2004, after realizing that his second child was on the way and that his wife would need to come off of the road, Andy released “Room to Breathe” and began performing his own shows again for the first time in 5 years. He has since released three more records – “Reinventing The Wheel” (2007), “The Law of Gravity” (2009) and “Christmas” (2010).
He now spends his time playing concerts and house shows across the country, accompanying other artists on the road, and providing his three kids with plenty of stories to tell their counselors in 20 years.
Andy was a Kerrville New Folk Winner in 2010 and was a runner-up at the 2009 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival.
