thanks for stopping by!
Hello friends! Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my campaign. I am so excited to share this dream with you.
For as long as I can remember, I've loved nothing more than singing and playing music in a way that touches people's hearts and draws them close to Jesus. God's Word and Spirit working together to transform people from the inside out becomes a reality in congregational worship. He speaks. We respond and are changed. It's an amazing exchange!
For the past few months, I have been creating songs for a worship album. My goal has been to create an album to help people engage with God in real, tangible ways. God has given me a vision to record an album around the idea of giving God the reins in our lives. But really, it's a story of struggle -- the struggle of letting go, the fight to trust that an all-knowing, all-powerful creating God who LOVES us has us in the palm of His hand. But He does! He is faithful, all-knowing, and trustworthy, and that's why we need to sing about it.
I hope to share new songs for the church to sing -- new ways of expressing the struggle we have with sin and the surrendered heart God desires for us.
We need to raise $8K+ to make this album a reality... I know it sounds like a lot! It is. I mean it when I say that this project is not possible without your support. I am already incredibly thankful for those of you who have encouraged and believed in me! Even if you will simply commit to show this page to a friend or to pray for me on this journey, let this be the first of many, many thank you's.
Where will the money go?
- Studio Time/Engineer - I'll be working with the amazing Andy Toy and a couple of others to get this album recorded.
- Players - We'll be working with a few insanely talented musicians.
- Editing - It never comes out perfect in one take... you try, try and try again and then piece all the best parts together! But it takes a master.
- Mixing/Mastering - Super techy stuff, but this is what makes it sound good when you hear it.
- Artwork Graphics - To make it pretty.
- Duplication - This is the cost for printing the hard copy CD's, so you can keep one in your car!
I could not do this alone. I am thankful to have worked with some incredible people who have helped write songs for the album, so here's a special shout-out to Carolyn Marcotte, Vince Pierri and Devin Pogue for all of their help in getting this album ready to record.
how YOU can help:
1) Select a pledge and support me! I cannot do this on my own and if I don't raise the whole amount, I don't get any of it. Please consider giving whatever amount you can -- every penny counts!
3) Pray for me!
If you want a sneak peak of the type of stuff we will be recording, check out this video we made of my single "I Surrender all to Thee" a couple of months ago:
Thank you so much for being such a critical part of this journey. I am so excited to share these songs with you!
Risks and challenges
My hope is that you feel confident in supporting this project, knowing that with your help and God's direction, it will be completed by June 2015. However, there is always the chance that production could be delayed due to unforeseen circumstances. This date could also be altered slightly by studio production. Thank you in advance for your support and patience as we move confidently towards this goal!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
