Wanda Young - Thursday, October 13th, 2011 3:09 PM CDT
I am so proud I found you on facebook. Didn't even know I had family here in Texas.
You are a very talented young man who loves God. That makes me so very proud of you Boyd.
Your post sometimes hits me where I need to be hit. I enjoy them so much. Keep em coming.

Virginia Nation - Thursday, October 13th, 2011 12:39 PM CDT
You are such an inspiration. God has used you to reach countless souls through your music, books and other writings. You radiate everything a Christian should be. God Bless you now and on future endeavors.

Love what you are doing. Your stories, music and ministry helps each of us to deal with our own shortcomings whether they be spiritual, mental or physical. Thank you for letting God use you to His Glory. Thank you for the inspiration you have been in my life. May God continue to rain Blessings down on you.

Mary Case - Friday, August 19th, 2011 7:49 PM CDT
I just found your web site and I love your music, especially "The Heart of a Man". I also read your biography and I, too, came to Christ through an adversity. God bless.

Gaylon Kath - Friday, May 6th, 2011 11:35 AM CDT
Hi Boyd
I read your epilogue. It gripped me like your book, Chasing The Wind; I just had to read on. I thank you for giving my granddaughter your book at her heart transplant benefit some time ago. If you had not done that, I may have missed the opportunity to read your book as well as other opportunities to witness for Christ. Your book, our conversation at the benefit, and Jessica‚??s strong will to survive her tragedies, has brought me much closer to God. I am very thankful for that. I was also inspired to write Jessica‚??s story. While writing it, I realized that you and she have some things in common. First, you both had medical mistakes that changed your lives forever. However, our Lord and Savior turned the bad around to create a wonderful ministry for each of you. For Jessica, it was touching hundreds if not thousands through prayers and compassion while she struggled with her many tragedies. I believe Jessica brought many closer to God through all of that. For you it is reaching hundreds and thousands through your music ministry, and that brings many closer to God as well. Keep up the good work and I am happy to see Brock joining you in your music ministry. I wish you and your family well.
Our God is an Awesome God

donna alexander - Friday, April 22nd, 2011 7:48 PM CDT
I met you a couple of weeks ago at burning hope baptist church.I was blessed by the song "thats what fathers do".My father had just went home to be with his heavenly father. I have read your book and have been double blessed.Your story really touched my heart.I pray that GOD continues his work in you. Thank you for helping me back. I think i had given up on GOD and myself. All i wanted to do was stay at the house and eat and sleep.I know God had a hand at getting me to revival.I also know he sent me a message through you.That i have to give my whole life to Christ not just the parts i think are broken. i thought i had but when i got sick i took it back and thought i could deal with it myself.How wrong was I!! anyways thank you and God bless

Joanne Lowe - Tuesday, March 15th, 2011 5:25 PM CDT

My name is Joanne Lowe. I live in Pensacola, FL. God has entrusted me with two ministries. One is encouraging pastors and the other is writing devotions when Jesus lays them on my heart. I would like to share my devotions with you in appreciation for your service to Jesus. If you will please reply to this email, I will send you one of my devotions. Be sure and type your name in the message so I know it is from you. Thank you.

Joyfully Serving Jesus,

Allen Risler - Monday, December 6th, 2010 9:06 PM CST
I run sound at Burning Hope Baptist Church and I loved your testimony and music last Sunday in Trinity. You were right when you described one of your lyrics as the most powerful. I too pray daily that I could be more like Him and less like me. I also wish I could find that song on your website on that special page where people go to find requested songs they heard you sing live.

I have 2 requests. One, sell singles online of all the songs you sing live especially that one. What is the name of that song?

Two, the next time you come to Trinity, please sing the National Anthem. Yes, I have read Chasing the Wind, and I know how much that song means to you. I think a prayer for an awakening for our country to return to the principles of our founding fathers, One Nation Under God, would also be much needed and appreciated.

Keep up His kingdom work,

Allen Risler

Gary Brightbill - Monday, December 6th, 2010 2:47 PM CST
Hi Boyd...

Yes, a voice out of the past(so to speak). I googled your name after thinking about you once again... I was pleasently surprised to see your accomplishments. I'm glad to see your change in life and career and thought I'd write to say hi!
You can reach me, if you wish, at the attached email address. It would be great to hear from you!

Amber Kelps - Monday, October 25th, 2010 8:15 PM CDT
Hello everyone...looking forward to using this site!

Connie Tomlinson - Thursday, August 12th, 2010 10:31 AM CDT
I read your bio, and wow, we have a little in common. I too was a preme although my mom carried me the full nine months along with my twin brother. She didn't know he was going to have 2 babies untill about 10 days before we came along. I was probably the equivalant of a 7 month baby. I had to stay in the hospital for like a month before they could take me home. I weighed 3 lbs& 3 oz & 16" when I was born. I inherrited a skin disorder called neurofibromatisis which is the result of a gene mutation. I never could run real fast myself because at 14 I had to have a by pass surgery on the aorta because it was narrowed like an hour glass, causing very high blood pressure, and I wasn't getting enough blood flow to lower organs and legs. Docs says it was part of the NF. Today I have tumors all over me and do have problems with spelling and math, have had since childhood; a part of the NF . this Friday 13 I will go in for some outpatient surgery to remove some of these tumors, one of which is on my neck area and close to some nerves. Pleas pray that God will guid the surgeon's hand and give me peace. I hate being put under and the side effects it causes. I trust the surgeon as it is the same one who did my by pass surgeryway back then, and he still remembers me. The only way we found out about the narrowed artery was because of me stepping on a nail while helping build the bond fire my freshman year at good ole Carrizo Springs High! Anyway just a little bit about me. I would like to buy the cd chasing the wind, and the other one that's just the single song on it talking about running the streets of gold. sorry for being long winded, I tried to buy online but I couldn't for some reason or another. My name is Connie. i graduated in 83, but remember you or hearing about you from school and church. Anyways pleas get back with me for info on how to buy and how much. thanks hope you get better soon!!

Bill Story - Wednesday, July 7th, 2010 6:36 PM CDT
Just read about the surgery hope your recovery is going great. will miss seeing you july the 9th and 10th. hope you enjoyed the book. LOVE you brother.

Nona Lowery - Wednesday, June 30th, 2010 7:22 AM CDT
I hope you remember me. I lived and taught in Carrizo Springs for forty years. I got your web site from a former student from CS.

I am so sorry your concerts have been cancelled for the summer. I live just down the road from Spring Branch and would love to see one of your concerts.

God bless you, take care and get back to singing God's praises on the road again.

John Harrison - Monday, June 28th, 2010 10:08 PM CDT
Boyd, we are praying for you. Praying the doctors hands are guided by God to create a fast healing. We know that all things are possible through God only if we believe and have faith.
God be with you and take away your pain.

John Harrison - Thursday, May 13th, 2010 8:17 PM CDT
Boyd, I like the new website. It is very friendly. I also want to thank you and rest of the quartet for the awesome contribution to the STGMA Annual Convention in San Marcos the 23,24th of April 2010. God truly blessed that weekend. I saw Him moving throughout the whole weekend.

Hey, I was here on April 21st at 3:26 p.m.
By the way, Emily text me this morning. Mady's favorite song now is Do Lord by SGQ. I had asked RD whose idea it was to put that on there and he said y'all kind of just decided together. Now we know. It was for Mady.

Debbie Moles - Wednesday, April 21st, 2010 2:30 PM CDT
Bro. Boyd, I wanted to let you know that I have visited your site and this isn't the first time either. lol The book is inspiring and I guess one of the things that I have really enjoyed while reading it is that you and your father in law have made peace with each other. God is good to change all of us who want and need to be changed. God bless you in all that you do for the Lord.

Jim Schuermann - Wednesday, April 21st, 2010 12:50 PM CDT

Our Sheiladawn loaned Ron your book to encourage him with his diability. I wound up reading the book non-stop. Totally ruined me - never used to read now I'm changed due to you. I'm reading all the time. Thank you. We've seen you perform twice and will see you tomorrow night (Oct 31) again in Pearsall @ "THE POINT" - all who are there will see God's grace and God's love through you. We are blessed to know you.

Gina Truelock - Wednesday, October 14th, 2009 12:08 AM CDT
William Boyd, I am on my home compter. Drenda told me the pictures from Pearsall were on Facebook. I don't have one but my son Court does. Anyway, I got on our home computer and I could not believe what I read under My Story. My son Court was born pre-mature in a Lubbock, Texas hospital and we spent the 1st 10 years of his life at the same hospital in Dallas. He was born with CP... only in his feet and have had surgery! Amazing! Gina

Linda Speed - Friday, October 9th, 2009 2:31 PM CDT
Been putting up flyers for your concert in Pearsall this weekend. We are so thrilled and blesed to have you and Southern Grace come to our little corner of Texas.

Hi. It's a masterpiece. I have never thought people can have such ideas and thoughts. You are great.

Gina Truelock - Sunday, August 23rd, 2009 12:13 AM CDT
Marlinda (Dunkin) Hengst told me about your web site. You have an aboslutely gorgeous voice. I really enjoyed it.
Also, by the way my best friend is Marlinda's sister, Drenda.

Cheryl Bell-Earls - Sunday, August 9th, 2009 9:34 AM CDT
My sister, Jackie Bell-Rector, found you on Facebook and shared your website with me. I don't know if you remember me, but we grew up together in Carrizo Springs and you used to ride our school bus and you used to go to Teen Town where you would visit with my sisters and others. My sisters are Brenda Bell and Susan Bell. Susan and I live in Arkansas and we are planning to visit you in Ashdown, AR during your performance. I hope to get to chat with you.

Hope to see you soon. Blessings,

Cheryl Bell-Earls

Brenda (Bell) King - Thursday, July 16th, 2009 9:09 PM CDT
Hello Boyd, I'm sure you remember me from Carrizo Springs. We went to school together and even rode the same school bus. I live in Lewisville now and just heard from my sister about your web site. I am so very proud of what the Lord has done in your life. I still remember you singing on the bus after school, and the National Anthem at the football games (go Wildcats). May GOD continue to Bless you and your family.

Greg Gilbert - Saturday, July 4th, 2009 12:15 PM CDT
Boyd, Just finished your book this AM. It hit me in the face at 1AM so I put it to the side to finish this AM. What an inspiring book! It was like writing a song. If it doesn't generate mad, sad or glad, we haven't done our job as a songwriter. Your book hit all of these emotions many times. Happy 4th. gg

Tobie Sims - Friday, June 12th, 2009 9:45 PM CDT
How is Brock doing, we are sending our prayers and love to you all. Tobie

Greg Gilbert - Sunday, June 7th, 2009 2:35 PM CDT

We enjoyed your visit so much this morning at Old Liberty. We all received a blessing. Looking forward to reading your book. God has truly blessed your ministry.
Greg Gilbert

Tony Strickland - Tuesday, May 12th, 2009 12:35 PM CDT
Hello Boyd,
I just finished your book "Chasing the Wind". Your Aunt Shirley loaned me her copy that she said that she has read numerous times and that it was marked up in several places.

Shirley is married to my uncle and I was visiting with them for a couple of days and knowing my love of reading a good book, she offered her copy to me. Your story is compelling and thank you for sharing your Faith and your life with others.

I will keep an eye on your schedule and will look forward to the next time you are performing in the DFW area and hopefully make one of your upcoming events.

God bless you and your family,

Kem Schultz - Tuesday, May 12th, 2009 12:08 PM CDT
I'll Run With You is a great song!

Twyla Menzies - Thursday, May 7th, 2009 6:23 PM CDT
Brother BOYD!
I emailed you about a couple who came to our church. She was never to walk again, and when you would go to her website, you would hear footsteps! It was the neatest thing in the world.
I'm thinking on YOUR website.. a person should hear someone RUNNING.. RUNNING FOOTSTEPS!
Signed, one of your RUNNING PARTNERS,

Jerry & Billie Allen - Sunday, May 3rd, 2009 7:51 PM CDT
Mr. Chisum,
Billie and I got a wonderful blessing tonight.
As you and Southern Grace brought your songs and testomonies to us. May God bless you all and know
we will be running at your side when we get home.
Much love and many blessing.

Hey Boyd, just looked over your site again. What a blessing it is to know you and to be your friend. Thanks for sharing your testimony and I'll Run With You everywhere you go. What a powerful 1-2 punch. I'm so happy that people are being touched through this song. Can't wait to hear more stories from the Texas Connection. God is sooo good!!

Hi William. What a moving story and what a true blessing you have been and continue to be to others. I listened to your sample music and truly enjoyed all of the tunes. My husband met John Thompson who gave us your web address and said to contact you for information on recording some of our original Christian tunes. My husband was a volunteer for the Southern Baptist Association and passed on my desire to record the tunes. If you do have a moment please contact me.

Jo Bean - Thursday, December 18th, 2008 8:54 PM CST
Boyd: I can't believe this is happening. My parents were the Coxes from La Pryor, You knew our daughter Pam and you were in our home near Houston. I have a tape of you singing and playing the guitar in our home in the 70's. I have wondered many times what happened to you and if you were using your voice for the Lord. What a joy it is to know that you are in the ministry and using your talents for Him. May God bless you and your family... Sincerely... Jo

Dear Boyd,
Your website looks great !
Lots of love,

- Monday, December 1st, 2008 10:06 AM CST
Well, last night I read until 2:30 a.m. This book is one of the best I've ever read in my entire life of 58 years! INCREDIBLE!
This is the Christmas season. With your family living in Dallas, Nena may already be hooked up with, and have a big supply of Mary Kay. Let her know I have anything she wants for FREE, a gift from me.. all she has to do is go to my website, pick out what she wants, and I'll send it to her, free and postage paid. What a woman! So glad we got to see photos of her on this website. That's the ONE thing the book lacked.. NOT ENOUGH PICTURES! Upon reprinting, please add the photos of you as a child in the hospital, and your family photo.
God bless your family, and when we are there for Seminar in the summer, I would love to see your family. Perhaps you'll have a booking there, locally, that we can attend. If so, I'll bring my entire UNIT! So be watching for the MENZIES MOUNTAIN MOVERS ;c)
Twyla Menzies

Twyla Menzies - Monday, December 1st, 2008 1:15 AM CST
It's after 1 a.m., and that's just the way it's been going, ever since I started reading William Boyd Chisum's book, CHASING THE WIND! It's a BIG book, and not one you can read in one setting, but you can't wait until you get back to it!

You were a guest at the church my dad pioneered, 55 years ago, and we still attend that church, and so does my father, Rev. C. J. Greer, who pastored the church for 40 years... BRIGHTON HIGHWAY ASSEMBLY OF GOD, in Brighton, Missouri. In fact, my dad and my youngest sister are also reading this book. I'm just DELIGHTED that it's going to be made into a movie.

I've made a "deal" with my son.. He finishes THE SHACK this week, and I'll trade him that for CHASING THE WIND... My son is going to relate BIG TIME to this book, and has himself, chased the wind, and he is coming back, FULL FORCE to Jesus!

Thanks for sharing this book, and what an inCREDIBLE writer you are!

Twyla (Greer) Menzies

Carol Edrington - Thursday, September 4th, 2008 8:27 PM CDT
I just finished your book, I could not stop reading it. I have learned so much from your story and I am going to try to live my life that way too. you had a hard time when you were young, I never knew that part. I never knew you did not get to live with your family. I did know what a special person you were and what a beautiful voice you had. You have been thru a lot Boyd and I admire you for being able to get thru it all. Even the darkest part, Some people dont get lucky in that area and get past it. We know a boy that went thru with it and everything you said in the book was true, what it has done to the family is horrible. Thank God you saw the light and stopped. The world needs you in it, you are admired by many. Thank you for writing this book, I laughed, I cried and i prayed while reading it. It really moved me Boyd. God bless you and your family. It was great seeing you at the Thompson boys weddings.

PENNY WILLIAMSON - Monday, July 28th, 2008 2:42 PM CDT
I feel truly blessed to have been a part this past Sunday at Temple Baptist. Your's and John's testimony through words and music was awesome. It was so good to see you and James. Looking forward to hearing from you and keeping in touch with you. God Bless you all and will keep you in prayers! Love the CD's and can't wait to start reading your book.

We have purchased your books for our church library (Buchanan First Baptist in Texarkana, TX). They are being enjoyed by many. We are looking forward to hearing when you will be in the Texarkana or surrounding area. We are anxiously waiting hearing when the movie will be done. That will be wonderful! God bless you and your family and your ministry. Nelda Adams

I listened to your CD all day at work, then played it for some people at church this evening. Everyone loves it. I'm looking forward to the possibility of you coming to Abilene.

Boyd, Wow, I read your book in 1 day, then I had my 19 year old daughter read it, then my husband read it. We were all so touched and blessed by your witness. God calls each of us to go and be fishers of men, and your obedience inspires each and everyone of us who want to give up.God is to receive all the glory in all we do and in your book He did. Thank you and God Bless you and your family ! Vicki Blazek Ennis, Texas

Thank you so much for being with us. Your music, your witness, and the grace with which you sing and tell them both is a gift that I pray will
touch many others.

May God richly bless
you with every good and perfect gift.

My wife and I enjoyed hearing your songs and the Grace-filled witness that you shared. You have always amazed me with your strength and dedication toward helping others. Life can deal us unfair challenges and tragedy. Upon hearing your witness and unbending faith in Our Lord Jesus I was reminded of Job.
You have done well!!

I read your book tonight, three hours of tears, assurance, and revelations -- God loves you Boyd Chisum!

Amazing story - thank you for the part about Keith, Jack's transformation, the high school teacher, Nena, Roy Dale (I know him), the story of your son's laughter, his singing with you, your journey. And yes, I'm still crying -- May God bless you...and keep the star shining brightly for others to see Christ in your music.

Dear brother William,

My husband and I attended the Ivan Parker concert in Hooks, TX last week. That was the first time we had heard you sing. We enjoyed it so very much. Today I read your story on internet and found it so interesting. God bless you and your ministry.

Major Mark Israel - Tuesday, September 11th, 2007 1:37 PM CDT
It was my privilege to meet and be with your family. What a treat it was for all of us. Your ministry was powerful and I heard many good comments about the Saturday night Gospel Fest.

I like to be there.

Major April Taylor - Friday, September 7th, 2007 9:03 AM CDT
I just back from Atlanta today. I read your book on the way there and back. It took about 6 hours. Just wanted to let you know what I thought.

I felt like you were sitting in my living room and you were just chatting with us. You opened up a window in your life and just let me peek in and see how things were and now are I would imagine. I felt your pains of surgery and joys of healing, your passion for Jesus and your family. You say many times that you are now changed and you will never be the same, I feel just a little of that in the respect that I am blessed to have shared these last few hours reading your story and now I will not be the same either. Your story is being passed on to my friend tomorrow who I know needs to read those words and understand the amazing mercy of Jesus and the mighty Victory of His unfathomable and faithful love.
I'm a better person for meeting you.

God Bless You and Your dear family!

Dear Mr. Chisum,

I wanted to thank you very much for mailing me your book and CD. I am a friend of Karin Skold from Sweden. Your story is so inspiring. The suffering you went through was tremendous. When I started the book I couldn't put it down and read it all in one day!

Just wanted you to know your testimony is powerful and touched me. God Bless you and your wife and son!

Pastor Roy Ford - Thursday, May 10th, 2007 12:00 PM CDT
In thirty-nine years as a Baptist pastor, I've seen lots of evangelists, counselors, artists, entertainers, etc., in churches. Some have blessed my life and my church while others have left me wishing I was some place else. I've had them all from unknown locals to Gaither Homecoming regulars (these are great). But recently we were blessed to have William Boyd Chisum for the first time. I'll assure you it's not the last!

Everything about Boyd-personality, talent, and mostly his Godly Spirit-will cause your people to laugh, cry, be challenged, encouraged and inspired. But more importantly, Boyd Chisum will bring your people into the presence of God with all these things.

Boyd's story "Chasing The Wind" should be read by EVERYONE.

I thank God for William Boyd Chisum, and I thank Boyd for his submissive spirit before God. Any pastor will do his people a favor by having William Boyd Chisum share his music and testimony with the church.

Paul Woodland SonRise Radio U.K. - Saturday, November 18th, 2006 9:44 AM CST
From an early age, it is apparrent that Boyd is not about to be beaten. Boyds book will take you on a trip through his life, his highs, his lows, along the way introducing you to people who helped shape his life. This book will make you laugh, and on occasions you may even want to cry, but what you won't want to do is put the book down until you have finished it.
Thanks Boyd!

I only met you recently through my association with your dad, and our short visits have been a blessing and inspiration in my life.

My life has been even more enriched after reading Chasing the Wind and listening to your music.

I know your talents and faith in God will continue to influence others for the Glory of God.

Thank you for the writings, the music and for being my friend.

God bless you and your family.

Ann - Tuesday, October 24th, 2006 12:14 PM CDT
Well no surprise that I have even greater respect for you after reading about your time in the hopital. Courage, real courage! We know God had a plan and I know we are both glad that your at that point and place He wants you to be. So glad to be part of your blessing as a friend and sister for eternity. God has been good to us.

Karin Skold, Sweden - Sunday, September 3rd, 2006 4:14 AM CDT
I really loved reading your story here on your website. And listening to your songs from this site, and also on The SunRise Radio in UK.
Your songs send out a voice from God to us all, around the world. Thank you !
Look so much forward to work with you, illustrating your work.
All the best to you and your family,
In Christ

Dad - Monday, July 3rd, 2006 3:40 PM CDT
I relived your childhood as I read the book and all the old memories came to light again. I recommend your book to all and I feel sure those who read it will find a part of their life in this book. May God continue to bless you, Nena and Brock.

Sheila Murdock - Wednesday, June 28th, 2006 3:52 PM CDT
Your music is so inspiring to me each time I listen to it. There is a message in each song and you can just feel God's presence when you are listening to the songs. "The Storm Won't Last Forever" has become my saying to myself on a daily basis. Many thanks to you for sharing your love for Jesus with the world and reminding us that God Still Moves the Stones..
God Bless you and your family and keep singing his praises.
Your Friend in Christ,
Sheila Murdock
