It’s Monday, and we all know what that means. “Ask MercyMe” time.

This week it’s Mike. Mike plays guitar in the band, and promises to answer every single question you guys have for him. It can be about guitars, family, favorite foods, hair products, you name it.

Answers will be given on Friday. What do you want to know?

    Gabriel Amps. Are you digging them? Our guitar player covets one very badly but sadly has no cash…anyway, how are they? Which are you using? Hope to run into you guys at GMA.

    Hey Mike!

    How many flowers do honey bees have to visit in order to get enough nectar to make one pound of honey?

    Also, how long should a couple keep the couch they got when they were first married???

    Additionally, If a couple has had six girls and then a boy, what are the odds that they might have a second boy? (No…were not pregnant).

    Lastly, if a boys name is Ben, what’s the odds that he might marry a girl named Olivia?

    By the way…you sure are smart!

    We love you Mike!

    Mike,
    I love the guitar work on all the albums. It seems like there’s always one doing one thing and one doing another.

    Hi Mike. Love your music and guitar sounds. Have you ever tried a guitar processor like some kind of line 6 floor pod etc. to get your guitar sound instead of all of the pedals you use? Is there a down side to such pedals? Thanks for taking the time to read and answer questions! God bless you all!

    3. Reading your latest blogs?
    4. Playing drums on the steering wheel and air guitar while driving with your knees?

    Hello! I LOVE LOVE LOVE you guys!! :) Your music makes me so happy and sad at the same time (in a good way)! I listen to all of your cd’s everyday and just went to one of your concerts (Appelton, WI) for the first time, and it was the best concert I’ve EVER been to!! Thank you so much for your faith and sharing it with everyone! I have a question about your music though. I was wondering if I could put one of your songs on my website? I’m a photographer and need to put a song on and I wouldn’t want anyone else’s. Please please. Let me know! Thanks so much! :) God bless, Jennica! (wish I could take your band pictures soooooo badly)

    *My photography website will be up soon*
