It's not for his Glory, but for the one who died on a cross hundereds of year ago so that our sins could be forgiven. This song "Come and Follow Me" was oringinally written by my dad Dennie Reagan Sr. and then Stephen took and redone to fit his voice.

He has a son 12 named Jacob Skidmore from a previous marriage, and a step on name Alex Shrader and daugther named Sierra Shrader. He is married to Crystal Skidmore and have been happily married for 4 years. God is his influence because of the way he has touched his life and the many blessings he has given him.

Lyrics

Come and Follow Me

Written By: Stephen Skidmore

Verse 1
As I walked into that church, and I sat down on that pew
The choir was singing praises about the one I never knew
I could feel his love all around me as a tear rolled down my face And the song that they were singing was that sweet Amazing Grace

Chorus
Jesus said Come and Follow Me
At the cross of Calvary
Don’t be afraid of me my son
For I have set you free
The world will come against you
Satan will try and tear you down
So just hold on to my promises
For I am with you now

Verse 2
The preacher finished his sermon
And he gave that altar call
Something was convicting me as I walked down that isle
Jesus was calling me, as I knelt down on my knees
How sweet his grace was that saved a wretch like me

Chorus
Jesus said Come and Follow Me
At the cross of Calvary
Don’t be afraid of me my son
For I have set you free
The world will come against you
Satan will try and tear you down
So just hold on to my promises
For I am with you now

Verse 3
As I walked out of the church
A fire rose up in me
And I went into the world to tell how Jesus set me free
He said tell them that I love them and how I died upon that tree
And now their sins have been forgiven and Jesus is the KING

Chorus
Jesus said Come and Follow Me
At the cross of Calvary
Don’t be afraid of me my son
For I have set you free
The world will come against you
Satan will try and tear you down
So just hold on to my promises
For I am with you now
