New Release – Rest (Matthew 11:28-30)

Finding yourself weak and weary? Disheartened, fearful, or forgotten? Condemned, falsely accused, or persecuted? I want to encourage you with a new song  released today called Rest, based on Matthew 11:28-30. Rest is a worshipful, contemporary hymn straight out of the Scripture with a creative twist reminiscent of the 70’s. It is a collaboration between myself, and veteran Nashville songwriters, Joe Beck & Chaz Bosarge, inviting you to come and find the rest you need.…

The Monster Just Outside

Because sexual abuse occurs more frequently than we want to admit: 1:6 boys, 1:4 girls, males are the least reported statistic...it's time to speak up! Support Mental Health Awareness Month (May).


One Life – demo (official lyric video)

Friends, we are in desperate times as a church right now to be authentic, genuine followers of Christ. As a believer in America where we have so much free access to the Bible and so many opportunities to share Christ, we can easily grow complacent, while other members of the Body around the world have been driven underground and risk their lives to live out the Gospel. I recently attended the screening of The Insanity…

A Place for You

I was listening to an interview between Michael Hyatt and Jen Hatmaker​ today on the online Influence & Impact Summit  (some great things to learn about this week for FREE). One of the things she said about how her platform of influence has grown (or “Secret Sauce”) is by putting “a much lower priority on self-preservation”. She wasn’t referring to NOT being a self-preservationist, but just making it a lower priority. It reminds me of…

Reflection on Being a Mom

I just want to share with you from today’s sermon at church.  It was very inspiring and I was filled with gratitude and joy about my future generations to come. To me, there is no greater joy and as well, no greater heartache, than when it comes to being a mom. And I love being a mom. It’s the highest calling in this life besides our purpose in it. We ALL have the same purpose…

Nashville Rescue Mission

Here it is, Feb 17, 2015, and while I am experiencing an ice storm and frigid temps in Nashville, TN, my son is back home mowing the lawn in 60 degree weather in the Pacific Northwest and my husband says the trees are starting to bud out. Such timing. Actually, I really do think it was excellent timing, because God’s timing is always perfect. He is always on time with His answers. Tonight I was…

Behind The Songs – A Still and Quiet Night

Christmas Single – A Still and Quiet Night One of the biggest (and I think), most difficult places to show the love of Christ is to our spouse: in which we have many opportunities to practice grace, allowing iron to sharpen iron to mature and prepare us for future glory. In marriage, many couples face an unintentional drift as they prepare for the Empty Nest. For many years the focus of the union has been…
