I want to take a moment to implore you...
You see, God's leading and I want to follow,
But I can't do it on my own, hence this video.
I've got all the people and all the material in place to make an album.
Now all we need is the capital :)
God has opened a HUGE door as only He can, and now I humbly ask you to walk through it with me. You can read the whole story at jenstanbro.com.
By simply pre-ordering this CD at whatever pledge level works best for you, you become a key contributor in funding the project. Without you, this project isn't possible. You won't be charged a penny unless I reach my financial goal.
If I do receive the financial backing to move forward on this album...then I (a homeschool mom whose original music is heard only in my living room and at our church) will be collaborating with one of my favorite artists and songwriters of all time, Shane Bernard (of Shane & Shane)! Shane & Shane's music has ministered to me tremendously over the years. I'd be honored (and quite honestly beside myself!) if God would see fit to speak through the music He's given me, as He has spoken through the music He's given them.
I've had original songs sitting neatly in a folder for a very long time. The total has grown to over 30. I'm seeking the Lord's guidance to narrow these down and select the perfect song list for this album, to minister to those He already has in mind.
All this wonderfulness costs money...registering copyrights for an entire album, to start. There are production costs, and duplication costs (to manufacture and print the CD's). The talented people I'll be working with need to be compensated for their time and service. If this album is God's will, He will bring about the harvest of money necessary to fund His work. So I wait on Him.
The God who sees clear into my soul, has placed this incredible opportunity right in the middle of my path, and today that path has lead me to you. If you decide to pledge today, I'd be more grateful than words can say to have you walking along side me.
I cannot thank you enough for your contributions.
May your generosity be returned to you a hundredfold!
P.S. I have a few style & song samples available at jenstanbro.com/listen. You'll find a couple songs that will be on the album, but will sound MUCH better than the little I can do in my mini-studio at home.
Risks and challenges
The goal underlying absolutely everything I'm working toward is to make sure it begins and ends with Jesus. I think I'm driving my friends and family a little crazy as I'm seeking counsel and feedback every step of the way to ensure my motives are Christ's cause, nothing more, nothing less.
I'm not signing with a label and all the 'ready-made' aspects that go along with it...and that means more uncertainty on the road ahead, but also more opportunity for the Lord to move.
Quite simply put - I'm signing up for God's work, whatever that entails. And to be totally honest, He has made His expectations of me very clear so far, but I'm not sure where He would like to take this album from here.
Sooo, I'm seeking His direction to sift through all the possibilities, and figure out what He would have ME do, and what He would have me WAIT ON HIM to do in order to give as many people as possible access to this music.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
