Moments With Mercy - Interview With Kennedy Hayes!

Hey y'all, It's been a little bit since I've been able to do an interview on here, and I'm so excited to share the one I did with Kennedy!  We first heard the Mylon Hayes Family sing a few years ago at NQC and really enjoyed them.  We've heard them many times since and are always glad when we get the chance to see them.  Kennedy is one of the most talented young ladies in Southern Gospel Music (music period), and I know y'all will enjoy learning a little bit more about her just like I did.  So, let me tell you a little bit about the Hayes family and then we'll get started!

"The Mylon Hayes Family, from Hudson, NC, is a complete family ministering on full time basis. Mylon is originally from Boone, NC and has sung most of his life with his family, The Hayes Famil
y.
Wendy is originally from Morganton, NC and sang solo’s in her church throughout her life as well. Mylon and Wendy were married in 1995. God has blessed them with 3 wonderful teenagers, twin boys Conner and Bailey who are now 18 years old and a daughter Kennedy that is 14. The kids are homeschooled allowing them the flexibility they need to travel. This family’s desire is to lift up the Lord with the music they sing, pointing people to the Cross. Jesus said in John 12:32 “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me”. He was lifted up on that cross and took our punishment because of His great love for us all. The Mylon Hayes Family hope you see Jesus and realize His great love for you in the songs they sing and the words they say."

And now for the interview.

1. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
"Well, here goes! I turn 15 this year and I'm the lead / soprano singer with The Mylon Hayes Family! I love playing piano and singing with my family!"

2. When did you get saved?
"I got saved when I was 8 years old after a revival service!"

3. What is your favorite part of singing with your family?
"Ugh, hard question. There's so much I love! But I love traveling and seeing new places! And I love to see young people still enjoying this music!"

4. What is your favorite song to sing?
"Current favorite is probably " I Choose To Stand"

5. What do you like to do in your free time?
"SHOP!!!!"

6. What is something most people don't know about you?
"I may seem like your typical girly girl but I LOVE to fish!!! But I get my brothers to bait my hook haha!"

7. If you could meet anyone (in the past or present) who would it be?
"To say I'm a huge " Little House on the Prairie" fan is an understatement so probably Laura Ingalls Wilder!"

8. Who is your Biblical hero?
"It would have to be Noah. Not just because of the fun story, but because he wasn't afraid to step out in faith!"

9. What is the hardest part of being on the road as a young person?
"Trying to keep up with my schoolwork and traveling is not so easy but I make it work since I'm homeschooled!"

10. Where do you call home?
