About the Project
Resurrect the Hymns breathes new life into the long-forgotten lyrical beauty of music from a bygone era. Each hymn is represented by a single line that captures the heart of the song handwritten in modern calligraphy-style letters.
A deep love of words has always propelled me forward in the world of creating. Although other forms of art are satisfying and beautiful, my first love has forever been the unspoken feelings created by reading a thought captured and laid out before others. Handwriting has been a passion of mine from a young age, however finding an outlet to express the joy that comes from putting pen to paper had proven to be difficult. While looking through the pages of a hymnal I realized the words between the covers were slowly being forgotten and all but unknown to younger generations. The poetic nature of these lyrics were calling out for new life and fresh eyes to read them, to enjoy them, find comfort or encouragement in them, be inspired by them, grieve with them, or maybe find peace within them. The idea that I can use my own hands to bring these words to a fresh medium means I can share a piece of what touches my heart with others.
- Amazing Grace "And grace will lead me home"
- Be Thou my Vision "Heart of my own heart, whatever befall"
- Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing "Bind my wandering heart to Thee"
- Come Thou Long Expected Jesus "Born to set Thy people free"
- Great is Thy Faithfulness "Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide"
- Hark! the Herald Angels Sing "Light and life to all He brings"
- Holy Holy Holy "Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee"
- It is Well with my Soul "It is well with my soul"
- Joy to the World "Let every heart prepare Him room"
- O Come All Ye Faithful "O come let us adore Him"
- Rock of Ages, Cleft for Me "Rock of ages, cleft for me Let me hide myself in Thee"
- Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus "Oh for grace, to trust Him more"

On the brink of a new decade of life, I still find myself wondering: "Will I ever become more than a 'jack of all-trades and master of none?'" My resume includes being a female person, a friend, mother, teacher, theologian, wife, observer of people, house renovator, furniture flipper, traveler, reader, and lover of the arts. While all of these things have been a part of my life, I can claim mastery of none of them. Yet the passion to create beautiful things helps me to press onward.
