PraiseToys is now Wellspring Praise. We welcome you. Look around and enjoy. – Bill & Kathy Latocki

We all are desiring more of God’s love and more answers to our prayers – it happens as we learn to sincerely praise Him. This Wellspring site is a community of believers sharing a resource center for praise training and equipping.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This site is temporarily shut down due to lack of time and help to run it. But it is still full of very helpful information and articles. So please enjoy what you see. Maybe someday it will be live and active again.

Donkey Day - a servant's proper perspective.

By Nathaniel Smith - Apr 30 2007

As a minister of the LORD, especially as a praise musician, it can be easy to think that the people are singing your praises. It is a common fallacy to misappropriate one’s success to one’s own skills…

Praise eternal song!

By Bert Thompson - Apr 19 2007

Once you hear the sounds of heaven you can never be the same; the very hearing of it ruins you to this world and all else in this life. No sound is quite so sweet and precious as the sound of . . .

Jesus & the Wack-A-Mole vision

Praise Report from Linda DiBiosso - Apr 9 2007

Our group was worshipping at Latocki’s house on Tuesday as always. I began to get a vision from the Lord. As I watched this “movie” develop and play in my spirit, I had to laugh at what I was seeing because it was so comical, yet I knew….

Transforming a region through “Praise, Prayer & Worship!”

By Rick Warzywak - Mar 30 2007

God is the author of sound, music and song. He inspires people as it resonates with our spiritual DNA through hymns of old; contemporary and the spontaneous new song. A town, city or nation can be transformed in a moments notice because God literally shows up. Our praise/prayer/worship can join heavens instantly as we turn our hearts towards Him. It is intimacy and relationship with God that we yearn for.

Measure Those Who Worship

By Francis Frangipane - Mar 28 2007

Worship rescues our spiritual efforts from routine, religiosity, pride and guilt; it takes our minds completely off ourselves and burrows us into the overwhelming life of God – Genuine worship causes us to become genuine Christians.

Vision during praise: "The Light is My Power"

Praise Report from Susan Brodowicz - Mar 21 2007

During praise Susan had a strong vision: “I realized then that they were not men, but warrior angels. There were not 100, not 1000, but hundreds of thousands – a voice said, “You didn’t realize how many warriors I have, did you? And these are only a small part of my army.”

Heaven can wait...Praise Him Now!!!

By Bert Thompson - Mar 1 2007

There are those who will tell you that when they get to heaven, they will be Praising God and singing songs to Him. Their idea of eternity is somewhere far off in the future – a finish line, a destination. Why wait, when we can come into His presence with Praise now?

Your Future is in Your Praise

By Pastor Michael Carter of Jamaica - Feb 14 2007

I stopped everyone and decided we would just join hands and sing unto God praises. As we did, this girl that was dumb and mentally deranged…was totally delivered by worship and praise. You see she could have remained like that forever but her future was altered by our singing praises unto God.

Up the Mountain of Worship and Visitation

By Donna Milham - Feb 8 2007

For on the mountain of worship is freedom for all who ascend – will you answer the call up the mountain – not in a perfect line of man’s prescribed ways – but in the unique and diverse expressions of true worship – abandoned and reckless – for those who worship Him must do so in Spirit and in Truth….

Rooftop JOY sign brings real joy.

Praise Report from Yvonne Rogers - Feb 4 2007

I obeyed…now have my own “JOY” sign on the roof of my garage. I am hoping that it provides the same blessing to others when they pass my house. God is so good and so willing to bless us … if we listen.

Praising your way into the Father's manifest presence

By Bert Thompson - Jan 20 2007

The thing that causes us to enter His presence is praise, not for what he can do for us or even what he has done, but just for WHO He is. Nothing touches the heart of the Father like praising Him just for WHO He is – it goes right into His father’s heart.

The Sound of Harvest

By Ray Hughes - Jan 11 2007

Virtually all the great revivals and harvests in past generations have had a musical sound that was unique to that move of God. At times it appeared that the music is what defined the revival, and at other times it seemed that the revival defined the music or sound.

Praise Jehovah Jireh for my miracle healing!

Praise Report from Page Himes - Jan 10 2007

A husband and wife agreed and believed together for the wife’s healing. They also both spoke faith-filled words over the situation. The results were a miracle and her doctor is getting “a second opinion”. Maybe he should ask the Master Doctor. Read her story…

Christmas poem: The Light on a Tree

By Linda DiBiosso - Nov 24 2006

In an obscure little town on a night like any other, an event took place that on one hand was very normal; and at the same time it was an event that would forever change lives, hearts, minds, cultures, and the course of history.

Private Praise is Intimate and Rewarding

Praise Report from Bonny Livernois - Nov 5 2006

The best times I have are with my piano and voice and I am praising the Lord with the song He put in my heart. It is very personal when I praise & worship alone with the King. I feel the presence of God so close to me.

The Importance Of Christian Music.

By Jackson Baugh - Oct 18 2006

Music was created in Heaven by God stricktly for the purpose of praise and worship. Music that man made up started out as praise to God. Gradually, it was twisted by the demonic influences. After our time here is over…there WILL BE music… in Heaven..and it will be for praise and worship.

We prayed, listened, believed – then God supplied.

Praise Report from John Poirier - Sep 29 2006

We had a knock on our hotel door. We looked out the window and saw a man who was waving money at us. I thought he was crazy. I did not recognize him at all. I thought he could even have a weapon and was tricking us into opening the door . . .

"Praise in the Park" changing city.

Praise Report from Bonny Livernois - Sep 25 2006

As the drums started beating louder, I was drawn to them. I walked up to the drummers and I felt the Lord saying that with every beat of the drum He was going to set a captive free.

Spontaneous praise ignites revival in New Mexico church

Praise Report from Susan LaClear - Sep 21 2006

We really worshiped Him “in the splendor of His majesty” until the Presence of God was thick. We had no song list, we just poured out our hearts in spontaneous psalms to the Lord. The Presence of God was incredibly thick.

Praise triggers vision of our nation under God's power.

By Dianne Sarvello - Sep 21 2006

How to "get with God" using Prayer, Praise, and Communion

By Bill Latocki - Aug 29 2006

Over the years, when things were going wrong, my precious wife Kathy would say to me – “time to get with God”. That was her loving way to say it’s time for me, the spiritual leader, to go pray, praise, and even have communion together – whatever, but to get with God and get an answer!

What I heard God say:

”First things first. The visitors to this site must first understand that I love them…if they do not get that revelation of My love for them deep into their hearts FIRST then all the rest of this site is going to be useless to them…it is that pure love-based praise that gets My ear, gets My attention, gets My results for their lives. Otherwise it is just religion and a waste of their time.” Read Entire Word
