Congratulations, Dr. Forrest!

My husband successfully defended his dissertation yesterday and officially earned the title DR. Dan Forrest. I’m very proud of him for the work he’s done over the past 3 years, for the testimony he’s had for the Lord, and for how he’s given God the glory for every good gift we have received (and there have been many.)

By the way, his dissertation piece is just fabulous. I can’t wait for the world to hear it, and especially the Christian community, because it’s very moving and worshipful. The head of Dan’s dissertation committee asked Dan to sign his copy, because he’s confident it will be a piece that will live on and become famous. We’ll see. 🙂

  1. Great news! Congratulations to the new Doctor!

  2. I can’t wait to read it. When can I read it?

  3. Dana,

    Actually, instead of an academic paper, it is a 35-minute piece for chorus and orchestra with six movements. Dan used some of the Ascension Psalms and wrote a piece that moves from sadness and despair (“Out of the depths”) to rejoicing at the Lord’s deliverance (“If it had not been the Lord who was on our side…”)

    I’m sure it will be performed somewhere, at some point. (Can’t wait!)

  4. Oh, that’s what I get for skim-reading. Well, can’t wait to hear it!
