About

I am so excited about this project - It's taken a life of it's own, and I'm loving the direction it's headed in! It's something I know I could be happy doing for the rest of my life!

What is it? It's a new business I want to start in taking people's stories and setting them to music. 

Many of us have a story, but not everyone has a song.

Music is a powerful motivator. It can help inspire, give us energy and create a mindset that helps to move forward and keep going when life is hard.

Most songs we can only relate to a piece or part of the song, still it moves us forward, gives us energy and helps us to become. Imagine, however writing a song that was totally and completely about you. Every detail of the song summed up your story, what you've been through and helped others to be able to relate in their own ways.

For those that are still struggling, these songs can be tailor fit for you in order to help you improve your mindset, stay positive and to give you hope specifically to give you hope - in the ways that you want to hear it.

For those that have already been through hard things, these songs can help to share your story and your message. This can be the way that you truly make your life matter and leave a message with the world and with your posterity. 

I love hearing people's stories. I have a gift for drawing those stories out, seeing what types of messages would benefit the most, and helping people to use these songs to inspire and encourage hope for themselves and/or in others. The more difficult your life experiences are, the more potential a song has to inspire and encourage. Those are the types of songs I want to write!

To start, I'm planning to write 2 songs per month. Though I'm writing these songs for people, I'm planning to keep the copyright for them. I want to be able to showcase parts and pieces of these songs, create databases of inspiring music (on many different topics) and keep them in a members only place called The"Light" Room. In The "Light" Room members will be able to download all the songs and sheet music for not only the hope-filled songs I've written in the past, but also for all the songs that I'm planning to add in the future. It will be an amazing place to go for hope, inspiration and it just happens to be one of the rewards for helping me with this project!!! (I know you want this!!!) 

I'll also be offering monthly inspirational packages for people to download one of these songs each month. Depending on what level they subscribe to, they can also get the sheet music included (look for these rewards on the side as well!)

I'm so excited about this idea, I really think it has the potential to do well and to just take off! As things got bigger, I would love to expand this business to take on new songwriters, create inspiring music videos, create songs for businesses and events, etc. and to really make a difference in the world in inspiring hope.

I need your help to make it happen! Though I can write the songs, I'll need help initially to get the business up and running. I'll need a new website, equipment to make the recordings, and resources to hire help as I'm getting started. I want to finish my own personal CD of "Hope Songs" to inspire others and help people to know that I've been through my own trials and hardships. I want to share these songs with the world, and I need to do that first really before I can start sharing other people's music. I really would like your help in this endeavor!

I would love for you to be a part of this exciting venture in really helping the world through these "Hope Songs"

Thank you so much for your support!

Risks and challenges

For my "Hope Song" a month subscription (a reward I offer) I'm planning to share songs that I've already written and have given me much hope. Though I expect there won't be any problems with getting them recorded and out each month, as a single mother, there's always the chance that something will come up with one of my children (one of my sons has aortic stenosis) and it may change my focus for a time. If that happens, however, I'll still make sure that you get all 12 MP3's and most likely right on schedule. With 7 kids, I'm pretty good at multitasking, and I'm confident I can keep up with it all =)

    A personal song written to inspire you!

    I will compose a song to help inspire and help you with the things you are going through. Most of the words will come from 2 45-minute mentoring sessions (can be done over the phone) and the song can be personalized to fit your exact situation. A simple piano/vocal recording will be made that you can share with anyone you wish, post or make copies for friends and family for free. I will also send you the sheet music, so that you can play the song as well (if you play piano). You will not be allowed to sell copies of the song or post it on streaming sites like Spotify or Pandora, and Lindy will retain the copyright. We can talk more about concerns you may have, if you're thinking about this reward. You will also be given the Lifetime Membership to the "Light" Room, and receive the pre-release MP3's for the new vocal album. I would look forward to working with you!
