This album, A Walk Through Me, has been a lifetime in the making but when God called me to write my story I thought sure ok. Never did I think I would be putting it out to the world and as music!? But here we go…….it releases very soon and I am a bit scared! […]
Working out the kinks…
So it has been awhile, forgive me for dropping the ball and not recording this process better throughout the past few months. It is quite amazing what happens when you start to share your story with the whole world. The devil is quite good at bombarding you with doubts, fears and what ifs……he is not […]
Broken bodied but singing on…
I had the honor in serving on the worship team a few weeks ago, one of my most favorite things to do in the whole world actually. I love standing up and watching everyone sing to the Lord and just worship. There is something about music that gives you a freedom that nothing else could […]
Reflection on the past year (2017)
“We have no right to judge where we should be put, or to have preconceived notions as to what God is fitting us for. God engineers everything; wherever He puts us, our one great aim is to pour out a whole-hearted devotion to Him in that particular work. “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do […]
We all have them….those things that make us cringe when we think about the possibilities. What if I get up there and just loose it? I am totally not the right person for this? He should have called someone else because I really stink at this type of ministry. We can come up with […]
Thankfulness for the new normals….
“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to […]
Being real when it isn’t cool…
I mentioned in my last post how important it is to me to be real with my music, my story and His calling for me. Being real in a world of fake cheese, fake hair, fake leather, fake meat, and even fake people; is so important! Things can be sugar coated, painted over, and fixed […]
Something that once defined me…..
Depression really did once define me. I was so lost in that fog that life was just something I had to fake; although some days I couldn’t even do that. I know there are many of you out there who walk through this fog today like I did for most of my life. It […]
Behind the song Insanity
Continuing with my story, my song Insanity stems from years of depression. From the time I was five I would ask God to take my life so I could be with Him instead of here on earth. So young and hurt so bad I wanted to die. These feelings and thoughts continued for 25 years […]
Behind the song Grafted In
Grafted In came together after we got home from picking up our daughter Haddie (Hadassah) after a very long adoption process from Hyderabad, India. Four and a half years to be exact! We waited and imagined the day we would finally meet her. So much anticipation and wonder. The first verse talks about this time […]
