My Faith Story

.. Spirituality has always intrigued me. As a child I would often lay awake at night pondering faith and eternity.  That's probably why a lot of my songs have eternity themes and explore what it means to live out the faith I profess.  

Some of my favorite memories of the wonder and emotion of music were at our children’s Christmas Eve services where we'd gather in front of church next to the huge lighted tree, recite scripture and sing carols about Jesus' birth in the warm glow of the candlelight.  As I grew older and experienced struggle and disappointment, I'd fill notebooks with lyrics and melodies,  wrapping my stories around notes and rhythms.  Fell in love with the stage as 'Annie' at a local playhouse the summer of my 12th year, where I met my first piano teacher.  I developed musical and vocal skills, love for performance, passion for spoken word and drama.  I also got practice having faith conversations with actors l worked with from various backgrounds. God was laying the groundwork for a future ministry and a life of bold conversations for Him.
My first CD of original songs was released in fall 1996, followed by four more over the next 20 years.  In the past 2 decades, I have traveled to hundreds of churches in 28 states sharing original songs with testimony in worship services and concerts with elements of drama.   During the week, I give private music instruction while taking care of my husband, two amazing teenagers and our home.  

My guitar has proven to be a great conversation starter.  I've been able to sing to strangers on planes and in airports, and share testimony about my Jesus and His goodness.  He covers my sin, gives me faith and trust, and showers me with love and blessings every moment of every day here while preparing me for a forever future with Him.  

When He says He's prepared good things in advance for me to do, I believe Him.  I have seen it time and time again.  When He says He is the life and the Way, and that I'm to go into all the world, teach all nations, and baptize in His name, I take that seriously. 'Therefore, in view of God's mercy, offer yourselves as living sacrifices' (Romans 12) - 'always be prepared to give an answer to anyone who asks you for the reason for the hope that you have' (I Peter 3:15)
So I seek to be boldly and continually vocal - ANYTIME,  ANYWHERE, with ANYONE!
