This record is a culmination of songs written in response to joys & challenges (ultimately, all blessings) over 8 years. Glory to God!
I realize that I would be nothing without the Lord. My faith defines who I am. Jesus Christ is my personal Lord and Savior. He is the reason I am here, He is my source of strength, He is my Rock, and without Him I can do nothing. My life verse is Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
I was born in 1974 with the congenital birth defect Spina Bifida. The physicians at the time told my parents to be prepared for the worst and warned them to not set their hopes too high regarding my mobility, nor my success in life. However, they weren’t giving thought to the power of the Lord, nor considering how faith in Him can move mountains. I was blessed to grow up in a Christian home with loving, supportive parents who, on a daily basis, taught me, through guidance and example, about the goodness of God, His grace, His power, and His unconditional love.
We are all called to be ambassadors of His love, and to spread the Gospel to the world in word and deed. In Matthew 5:14-16, we read, “You are the light of the world – like a city on a mountain, glowing in the night for all to see. Don’t hide your light under a basket! Instead, put it on a stand and let it shine for all. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.” And in James 1:2-5, we are reminded of how, through faith in the Lord, we are able to persevere - that no matter what life may throw at us, as long as we allow ourselves to accept His embrace, we overcome. “Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
I have a passion for music, especially music that directly glorifies the Lord. I have heard it said that, when we sing, we praise twice – once through the lyrics, and another through the melody. Music has an awesome power and is a wonderful way to express our faith (for example, the Psalms). I am involved in a songwriter’s ministry, and I continue to stand in awe of the ways the Lord works and the methods by which He imparts His peace and joy through music.
I have been called by the Lord to undertake part of that responsibility as Worship Leader. I am currently serving the Lord at Pender United Methodist Church with the Common Ground ministry. I also feel called by the Lord to add music to lyrics He provides me as a Christian songwriter. This is my first album - my first answer to His calling to proclaim His greatness through music beyond the walls of the church. As I mentioned, serving in music ministry is a tremendous responsibility, but oh, what a joy and a blessing!
Thank you for partnering with me and making this a reality!
