The Scandal: The Story Behind our First Spoken Word...
"The Scandal" - our latest music video - is a bit of a departure for us - vulnerable, honest and unique, maybe even a little bit defiant - in this episode of the WRD Experience, Kailah and Zach talk about what inspired us to take a risk and release this song in the first place...
The Cost of Faith: What They Don't Always Tell You
We talk a lot about the "free gift" of forgiveness and freedom available through Jesus - we're passionate about this message and about sharing it with the world. But in the Bible, Jesus talks a lot about the COST of following Him. In John 14:15 He says, “If you love me, you will keep my commands.” It’s a highly controversial message in today’s culture: Christianity without obedience to Jesus’ words…. just isn’t authentic Christianity.
Essentially, we’re talking about a “free gift” that will ultimately cost everything. In this episode of the WRD experience, we tackle this challenging subject and explain why we absolutely believe that the cost of following Jesus is completely worth it.
Freedom through Surrender: An Interview with Ravelie-Shanda Derilus
Sooo... we recently had the opportunity of interviewing one of our favorite humans on the planet: Ravelie-Shanda Derilus - we feel that the wisdom and perspective she brings to the table is priceless and we are so excited to share it with all of you.
In this episode of the WRD Experience, Shanda shares some deep, life-changing wisdom about the true source of life and love, what "rest" and "humility" really mean, and the secret to real freedom.
Also, the weird chemistry that Shanda and Sierra share is entertaining to say the least - we hope you enjoy it as much as we do...
Why the WRD Song "COME BACK" is So Important to Us
The last several months have truly been a profound season of re-calibration for us.
From March to June, in the midst of the upheaval that has affected the entire world, we found ourselves unexpectedly stranded overseas - shows were cancelled or postponed, plans were put on hold…
And we found ourselves CHALLENGED to continue in our mission to share the love of Jesus - even if it meant finding new ways to do it during a time of global crisis.
We began to brainstorm - we wrote new music and started a podcast…
AND we discovered the rugged, beautiful coastline of Biarritz, France, and decided to start filming.
Our goal was to use the windswept cliffs of France as a backdrop to tell some of the heartfelt musical stories from our latest album.
On FRIDAY, JULY 17th, we released our first “story,” the music video for “COME BACK” one of favorite songs from our latest album, “Through It.”

In this episode, Zach sits down with Sierra to explore the heart behind this vulnerable song...
Dealing with Anxiety in Unpredictable Times
Struggling with anxiety? You are most definitely not alone: the world as a whole is in an undeniable state of upheaval...
Which is why we felt it was crucial to have this conversation right now. In fact, if you're battling worry and fear, this may be one of the most important messages you hear this year - God is offering us peace, but it won't come without a fight.
Join WRD's Kailah and Zach for an in-depth look at the very real war for personal peace being waged in our lives right now - along with practical strategies for experiencing the freedom from fear that is available in Jesus.
Who Is My Brother?
For the last few days we've been watching reports of the racial turmoil in the United States from across the ocean here in France, and it's been weighing heavily on our hearts. So much pain - so much brokenness: this issue is affecting many people that we love deeply.
So we decided to have a public conversation about it - to record a podcast about Jesus’ heart for reconciliation.
...And after recording the episode, we left the studio with tears in our eyes.
We don’t claim to have all the answers, but in the midst of the turmoil, we’re seeing a glimmer of hope for the country we call home - we've been noticing strong voices of love and reconciliation speaking out in the Christian church - voices from many different races honoring God and each other, speaking honestly about deep hurts without sacrificing love and respect.
And to us it looks like a "light on a hill" - a visible demonstration of the supernatural love of Jesus in action.
We believe that the love, life and message Jesus is still the answer for every instance of brokenness, injustice and pain in the world - Jesus loves you, friends, and we hope this episode is an encouragement to you no matter what you're facing today.
