KL Cleaning N More Where did it all start?

When I was growing up my mom would clean house and crank up some old country music on 8 tracks.  I guess back then it wasn’t old and today its called Classic Country.  I know it was real country for sure.  I remember hearing songs by Red Sovine, Hank Williams SR., Patsy Cline and more.  See I told you it was real country lol.

This song right here was one of my favorites

The other song that I loved so much and still do was Kaw-Liga

Man I want to dance around when I hear this song.  My point is these were fond memories.  My mom would put her hair back in a bandanna and get to cleaning the house and it just made such a neat atmosphere in the house.  You know I really do not remember helping her but I am sure I did.  What I do know is I learned by watching her and I started enjoying those days.


When I was in Jr High we moved across the street from Pat Nigh from Bluejacket OK.  AKA MAMA PAT.  Pat hired me to help her spring clean one year and she trained me to do things such as washing down walls, pulling curtains off the walls and taking cushions off couch to clean.  I would take the cushions and put them in a large strong trash bag and stick the vacuum hose down in the bag.  If you hold it tight around the hose it will collapse the cushion sucking out all the air and removing dust and dead skin cells…ewe…

I got to going over to Mama Pats on Saturdays which was her cleaning days.  At this time in my life my mom was working at the family feed store which they later owned and ran.  Anyways on those days guess what we had that good ol country music playing on cassette tapes and even cds as the years passed.  We played some of the classics and we listened to a lot of George Straight and Reba.  Songs such as the Chair and Whoever s in New England

I lived across from her from 8th grade till I graduated.  I continued to work for her and even still do from time to time.


So as you can see I have had two amazing women inspire me and teach me to clean…


Cleaning…well cleaning makes me feel good.  It has great memories connected to it.  I get a good work out, feel I accomplished something and help someone else.


I have been cleaning homes for a living or extra money now for 27 years.  WOW… I once had a full time job in the corporate world.  I cleaned the office floors, kitchens, fitness center, and corporate apartment.  I have to say even with the great benefits that it was not the same feeling.  I really did not see the faces of the people I was helping and it was not personal at all.  I love developing relationships and friendships with my clients.  I still have some here or there that really are not any more than business at least on their end of it.  I still feel like I am somehow making their lives better by just doing my job.


KL Cleaning N More

You know I have tried out a couple of different names and this one stuck.  What is funny is my name is Cassie Gilman so that would be CG.  In all these years since I started using this name(I think 2007) I have only had two people ask me what does KL stand for?.  OKAY SO HERE IT IS!!! LOL




Cleaning N More=care giving, errands, windows, etc…

So what does Kingdom Living mean to me where this business is concerned?  Good question…

Integrity, Loyalty, Honesty, Promptness, Compassion, Caring…

It also is Matthew 6:33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.


I believe if I keep my focus on God, He will bring me into the right clients lives, businesses, and homes.  He will also be the One meeting my needs financially through the hands of my clients.


Now today when I clean houses I listen to Reba still but I mainly listen to these two artist…Wyatt Nations and Carol Hogner.



So now you know where KL Cleaning N More Comes from.


Thank you mom and mama Pat for inspiring part of my purpose.

What’s New with Russ Nottingham

I was so blessed last year to interview Russ Nottingham as one of my first artist.  I met Russ and his wife Jeri last year at the 2014 ICM Awards.  I am blessed to call them my friends.

I asked Russ a few questions to see what’s new with Russ Nottingham in 2015.  If you have not already read his interview from last year please take a moment and click on this link below.




1.  Russ what would you say has been your biggest achievement over this last year since we first met at the 2014 ICM Awards?

We met a lot of great new Christian friends during the ICM Awards last year and have also been able to minister with them since then.  Just recently, the door has been opened for us to step into a full time music ministry.
2.  Where do you feel like this next year will be taking you in your ministry and music?
Prayerfully, we are believing that God will allow us to travel across the U.S. to help spread the good news of hope and salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
3.  Do you have any new projects you are working on as far as a new cd or single release?
Not at this time, but once we get moved and settled in, we are hoping to get back into the recording studio
4.  If you could encourage the other artist out there with one thing you have learned over this last year; what would you say to them?
Well, I’ve seen the enemy attack many others throughout this past year in one way or another and have actually experienced it for ourselves, but one thing that I’ve learned and would like to encourage others with, is Don’t give up!!! No matter what obstacles he (the devil) may through our way, God is in control! He’s got our back! As it says in Rom. 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
A word from Russ and Jeri on some exciting news they have been telling everyone they had for them:  Well, here’s the news that we told you we’d share! We feel that God has opened this door for us, so we are going to step out by faith and see where He leads. We are excited to announce that we have sold our place here in Ohio and are planning on moving to Florida, Oct. 1st. If all things go as planned, we’re also going to purchase an RV and prayerfully pursue a full time music ministry. YeeHaw!!! It has always been a prayer and a dream of ours to do this. So we are asking that all of you pastors, fairs, festivals, special event coordinators, campground owners and etc, (also friends and family members as well) please prayerfully consider having us in to minister, because we are looking for and scheduling places to share the positive message of hope and salvation though song, testimony and His word. We will travel anywhere that God opens the doors. Please help us spread the word about our ministry to others. Also, please keep us in your prayers as we get about the fathers business and step into this new and exciting chapter of our lives. To learn more about our ministry or to hear some of our music, please visit our website at www.russnottinghamministries.com. Thank you all so much for your continued prayers and support! We love you all!!!
God bless,
Russ and Jeri

Interview with Rendall Caviness


Last year in October I was blessed to help Carol Hogner put on her First Anual Carol’s Benefit Concert.  I was in charge of lining up artist.  I invited a group from a church we had been to for her to sing.  There was an amazing harmonica player there with this band.  When I watched him playing with his leather harmonica strap on with all those harmonicas I was very impressed.  One I had no idea there was more than one key of harmonicas not to mention enough you had to have a belt on that looked like a large ammo belt.  Two they call harmonicas harps! HUH LOL

You know I do not believe in coincidences but I do believe in divine connections.  It was not long after this event that Rendall started playing back up harp for Carol and we all started traveling together.  We have been blessed to go to many churches and events and Rendall keeps people mesmerized with his big ammo belt and harp playing.


Rendall picked up harp playing about 40 years ago.  He was told it would help put babies to sleep. “I had three sons.  I wanted some peace of mind. It worked, kinda sorta.” Their mom would play the piano, and I would play the harp along with her.  At that time we mostly played church music.  Back in that day folks entertained themselves with music.

Rendall accidentally taught himself to play harp upside down.  He said “its like a left handed guitar player playing a right handed guitar.”  His dad was a pastor and they moved pretty often.  Rendall grew up from about 5th grade in the Mississippi Delta.  In the Mississippi Delta area there was always a lot of harp players and guitar players.  In the 50’s the color barrier meant that he was not allowed to attend most of the shows.  Rendall would listen to these programs on the radio and fell in love with this style of music.  Rendall learned to practice with the radio and does this even today.


I was able to do a live interview with Rendall at an event a few weeks back.  I hope you all will take a short moment and listen in.


Rendall is available for recording with artist and playing back up for you or in your band.  Be sure to check out a few of these videos.  He recently backed up Jimmy Jones in concert.  I have added a video of one of their songs as well as few others.

Be sure to go like Rendall’s Facebook page at Harping4U.  Be watching for more videos and recordings coming soon.
