I Am A Whosoever: Lacey

Years ago I used to tell people from stage, everyone dies, we just don’t know when or where or how. You shouldn’t be shocked that people die, you should be surprised that you’re still alive. I said it in a bold way. It was with a hint of exhaustion, because I was tired of people taking their lives for granted, not realizing life is a gift. But then my friend Rich died in a car accident, I was shocked. When the time came to say this part in the 1st show I played after his death, there was no boldness or exhaustion. I trembled when I said it. I preached it to myself. In that moment, I knew that valuing my life, like I preached to others, meant I needed to go home and figure out how to love my growing family. Four years and many miracles later, we have written songs with our friends in their houses and in our living room and basement, and we have been learning a lot about love and not taking life for granted. We’ve learned that if we have the miracle of breath in our lungs and a voice in our heart, then we should use it for love…read more @ilovejoshsturm #IAmAWhosoever 📷 @joshdel

High School Tour In Full Swing

By: The Whosoevers

As we pulled up to the first high school and started to unload I knew this was going to be a big day. We’d planned and prayed for months and we were finally here.

The school bell rang and the band started its set. Some of the lyrics were about suicide, addiction, and self harm and it caught the attention of the students. All too often they are hearing words like these but usually with no explanation or answers until now. Each Whosoever performing had a powerful story and with such a desire to reach these students for Christ, they shared about the honest struggles that they faced in life with the hope that these students will never chose to go down the wrong path but instead accept Jesus in their hearts and follow the purpose and path God intended for them.


As the band played a few songs the lead singer shared about being tormented with thoughts of suicide for many years. When the band concluded Ryan talked about living an empty life filled with money, women, and drugs only to have his friends find him overdosed in a hotel room barely hanging onto his life. These stories of rock bottom breaking moments and the turning point where God met them had the students floored and curious. As the event closed Ryan asked the students to stick a thumbs up if they wanted to accept Jesus into their lives. Thumbs went flying up and voices reverberated across the quad as the students said a prayer inviting Jesus into their lives.

As I started packing up I realized there was still a sea of students that didn’t want to leave yet. The Whosoevers crew came around to hang out. We stayed for hours; nobody was in a hurry it’s was all about those kids that afternoon.

I was moved as I could see the openness and change in many hearts. As I drove home I prayed for that school and for the other schools we were going to visit in the coming weeks, there was a huge need and we were filling it.

I Am A Whosoever: Brian

I got involved with #TheWhosoevers because I love Jesus more than anything in life. He is God and he is irresistible. Everything in life makes sense when you really get to know Jesus and his character. I would easily take a bullet before renouncing Jesus. He is more real to me than any human relationship I’ve ever been in.  A lot of people think anything to do with Jesus is B.S., and I can’t blame them since organized religion has been dragging His name through the mud for centuries. But as soon as every single human beings spirit leaves their body on death’s day, all the mocking will stop. But the real question is this…who will receive the biggest spanking? The sinners, or the bitter judgmental religious people who caused so many to mock his name? Hmmm…Food for thought. @brianheadwelch #IAmAWhosoever

The Whosoevers in Costa Mesa

Last week I had the opportunity to speak a couple times in Costa Mesa, California. I headed to The Beach City Sports Networking event and got to chop it up with a cool group. A couple days after I met up with Christine Brant from “One Choice Destroys You” and we spoke together at Lifelines, an addiction recovery program.

After being out at these two events it just reminded me of the huge need that exists across our country and it inspired me to book another speaking tour. If you’d like me come out and speak email info@thewhosoevers.com or call (844) 428-6275


Book Now! Israel Trip Dates April 5-17, 2016

We only have 50 seats on our 2016 Israel trip so reserve your spot today at http://inspiredtravel.com/tours/whosoevers2016

Here’s what some had to say about our last trip…

“The 2014 Whosoever Israel Trip allowed me to re-examine my life and my walk with God. I can say now that my walk is stronger than ever and I met many people while on this trip, and they are now my life-long family!” – Selina Barela

“I had been walking with the Lord for 19 years when He presented me with the opportunity to go to Israel with the Whosoevers. In the 9 days we spent in Israel, God changed more in me than I had allowed Him to change in 19 years!!! I will never be the same!!!” – Nick York

“There is not enough space or words to adequately describe what God did for me personally on this trip. But much like everything else in life, if you let Him, God will use this trip to turn your faith inside out and change your life forever!” – Carl Trost

“Bring in the presence of our Lord and Savior was amazing!” – Lisa Garcia

“I have been a Christian my whole life. I grew up in a Christian home, went to a Christian high school, and the majority of my family are Christians. But I have a lot of bitterness in my heart towards other Christians who had wronged me in the past and it was that bitterness that hardened my heart. When I set out for this trip my main goal was to gain a tenderness in my heart. I wanted the emotional experience that could bring grown men to tears. I wanted the Holy Spirit to move me and I can honestly say that it did. God has softened my heart.” – Natalie Frisby
