Well friends, this is it! It's Time to Take this Step... 

This actually feels a lot more like a LEAP! 

I'm  finally gearing up to record my very first album. 

I've been writing and giving away rough in-home recordings of my original songs for years but I've  never  recorded a professional CD.

 I've gotten a couple of quality recordings over the years... For example, here's a song I wrote several years ago to begin processing the death of my mom. 

I've been dragging my feet for quite some time, afraid to take seriously the importance of sharing these songs... but I know that I can't ignore this any longer.

This album is my heart's journey. It's a pursuit of truth. It's a story of brokenness, loss, courage, and profound redemption!

My hope is that this will be an album I can give away and let spread and impact lives for many years to come. This isn't something that I'm able to do on my own.

      I'd like to invite you to consider helping make this a reality. 

The songs are picked out. I've made a game plan with an amazing producer named Brian Whitman. Now all I need is the funding.

Kickstarter is an awesome way for you to help fund this album and get really cool rewards in return!

It's an ALL or NOTHING deal, so if I don't reach my goal in time, you will not be charged anything. If I do raise my goal, you'll receive my album when it's finished!!

Thank you for your willingness to stand with me in this. 

May Jesus, the breathtakingly beautiful One who has healed and liberated my heart, be honored and celebrated in my life, 

Amber

The Music

Here are a couple more songs to give you an idea:

This one was professionally recorded and donated to a curriculum for women who have been sexually exploited through human-trafficking. Most of my very favorite songs have yet to be recorded well. Several of them have never even been heard.

Here's the song in my video. :)
