TO GOD BE THE GLORY
Montreal native and singer Kathy Veer has performed everywhere from churches to cafés to concert halls. She developed a keen interest for music at the tender age of four, listening to artists like Al Martino, Sarah Vaughn, Dionne Warwick, and the Supremes. At the age of eleven, she joined the school choir and it so inspired her, that she wrote her first song. Her music teacher was amazed, and sent her song to Anne Murray to be recorded. Though nothing materialized, Kathy did perform the song with the school choir at their year end concert.
At the age of fourteen, Kathy gained an interest in the drum set. The next year she was chosen to play drums for her high school’s nationally acclaimed big band (through the Canadian Stage Band Festival). She held that chair through grade twelve, and went on to play for the City of Edmonton big band for another year. At twenty, Miss Veer entered music school where she earned an associate’s degree in music composition. She also started singing with various jazz, pop, rock, and country groups and earned her living as a working musician through the 1980s.
Kathy enjoyed many musical opportunities, but the flip side of that was the fast lane and the night life. Her existence spiraled into an emptiness that over-shadowed her life in a profound way. She had met the Lord Jesus at age thirteen, but wasn’t ever serious about him until this crisis. At age twenty-seven, with no hope left for living, Kathy gave her heart to Jesus Christ. It was the best decision she ever made. Of course her life didn’t get tidied up in an instant. But before too long, God had set her feet on a straight path, and good things began to happen.
In 1992, Miss Veer felt God was calling her back to school. She went to study at Toccoa Falls College in Toccoa, Georgia, majoring in psychology and Christian counseling. After receiving her bachelor’s degree, she proceeded to work in this field over the next year. But she knew in her heart this was not the profession for her. She hadn’t made any other plans, and was listening intently for what God might have in store for her.
The Lord showed her His will in a mighty way when he brought a husband into her life. He was a minister and loved God. Soon, they knew the Lord was calling them to marry. They wed in 1997, and pursued various types of ministries over the years. Prison ministry has been a big part of their lives. Kathy set up a choir and rhythm section at Augusta State Medical Prison, and directed that group for about three years. Later, God opened the door for Kathy to direct a small church choir in Gibson, Georgia. She was there for five years.
Kathy Veer currently offers concerts in church sanctuary settings, and ministers along side her husband through various venues. But her greatest desire is to see people saved and walking in close fellowship with the Lord, Jesus Christ.

On the night of November 6, 1977, the lives of several hundred people were changed forever when a wall of water poured over the highest waterfall east of the Mississippi river.
Water dropped 186 feet onto automobile size boulders, then careened downstream 55 feet high, traveling 110 miles per hour.
It raged through a college campus, taking everything in its path, to Lake Hartwell, 20 miles away. Doug Veer was a survivor.
Within these pages you'll find the true account of what happened that stormy night in November in a small college town in North East Georgia. With God, all things are possible, even in the Valley of Death.

with Terri Gibbs
A wild, disobedient boy leaves his home near Chicago at the age of 14, believing he can do it all, alone. He signs up for Navy service where he finds danger, intrigue, and adventure. And like many other young people, he tries alcohol and drugs. Then Doug tries marriage; he makes more than one attempt at it. But each one goes bad. Then there’s the motorcycle gangs and the illicit relationships, but his future remains destined to destruction. He even decides to accept Jesus Christ as His Savior, but somehow his commitment is shallow, leading to more years of trouble.
Later in life, through a difficult divorce, Doug loses his children. It’s at that point that he’s driven to break the law, is convicted, and faces 13½ to 27 years in a federal penitentiary.
