New Album Coming!
I am so excited to announce that we are OFFICIALLY starting the recording process of my new album on MONDAY!! Our goal is to have it done in a few months! With that said, I don’t want to start any kind of funding page but I would like to ask you to consider partnering with us on this album. As many of you know it is very costly to do an album and anything would help. $10, $20, $100, $1000 or you can give $1 million and I will be able to do A LOT of albums :). If you are interested in knowing the total cost or any other information, you are welcome to message me directly. You contribution would be greatly appreciated! We would love to give you one of the first copies of the album!
Also, please partner with us in prayer. We believe that the presence of God will invade these songs and His heart will be rightly displayed.

I want to fill you in on the journey of how I got to this place.
I am going to be really vulnerable…
I have felt extremely discouraged when it came to recording music. It has felt like everything I tried to do fell through. I didn’t understand and ultimately…I hardened my heart to putting out music. I knew the pain that was involved in the process before and I didn’t want to endure it again. I was wrong. I know that now. Some of you know that I recorded a LIVE album a few years ago that never came out. It was an incredibly painful experience because I gave my heart to the songs on that album. I felt like a part of me died during the process. BUT JESUS…He brings life. I was so blessed when a couple of dear friends came along and helped me record my acoustic album (The Journey). I knew that it was God showing me that He had a purpose for these songs. For the past few years, I have been leading worship, singing songs, but hardly writing. For those of you who know me…you know me as someone who would write almost everyday. Even in my sleep…I breathed writing music. I had endless piles of papers that were covered with words. I felt like God was leading me to the end of my dream just to give it back to me. I was ready to be done, BUT He breathed life again.
Just a couple months ago I had a conversation with the Lord while I was on stage leading worship. I thought for sure He wanted me to die to the dream of doing another album. I did. I died on that stage. There’s something so upside down about the Kingdom of Heaven. You lose to gain and you die to live. I don’t always understand it, but I don’t need to. That’s what happened on that stage. Since then I have felt a push towards worship stronger than before. My heart is being filled with ideas, dreams, and vision…but mostly…HOPE!
I want to invite you to partner with my husband and I. I believe that these songs will ultimately bring glory to Him who is worthy of our worship. I believe they will invite people to enter into deeper communion with the One who is eagerly waiting for them to come and meet with Him.
