I’m forcing myself to do this right now. It’s late and I’m trying to be a morning person. But when the inspiration comes, it comes, and you just have to go with it.

I feel like I have a lot to say so bear with me because I don’t necessarily know where this is going, i just feel strongly that I'm supposed to write it all down. And maybe share it. Or not. I guess if you’re reading this I decided to share it.

2017 was a year I will never forget, one of the most monumental and exhilarating times of my life, but if I can be honest, the last several months have been some of the hardest and most trying times. It was like a big roller coaster ride, I finally got to the top, the view was incredible, my heart was full of anticipation, and then it just got stuck.

It’s ok that it got stuck. It happens, and not ever...

Luke 15:11-24 - The Prodigal Son

And he said, “There was a man who had two sons. And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of property that is coming to me.’ And he divided his property between them. Not many days later, the younger son gathered all he had and took a journey into a far country, and there he squandered his property in reckless living. And when he had spent everything, a severe famine arose in that country, and he began to be in need. So he went and hired himself out to one of the citizens of that country, who sent him into his fields to feed pigs. And he was longing to be fed with the pods that the pigs ate, and no one gave him anything.

 “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father's hired servants ha...

The first thing I thought of when writing about this song was the Israelites. I was thinking about how God saved them from slavery and captivity in Egypt, parted the red sea, rained manna from heaven...yet they still, time and time again, questioned his faithfulness.

The movie Prince of Egypt makes you feel all the butterflies at the end of the movie, but if you read all that happened after that, it’s SERIOUSLY frustrating.  You’re telling me that you watched God open the ocean for you and you’re going to COMPLAIN and DISOBEY and act like FOOLS?!

And we think that SURELY that would not be me, surely if I saw all of those wonders and miracles I would never question Him again.

But as I criticize and questioned that behavior, I find myself no different. I find myself as one of those who has seen God’s fait...

John 4:7-14:

When a Samaritan woman came to draw water, Jesus said to her, “Will you give me a drink?” (His disciples had gone into the town to buy food.) The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.) Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.” “Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his livestock?” Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I gi...

I wanted to do something a little different this week. I needed to sing this song, I needed to remind myself of truth that I had written. So, instead of a video of the story and a written blog I thought I'd share a more raw, acoustic, non edited version of this song with you and blog about the story. :)

I did not want to write this. It’s been a very hard week, to say the least. Maybe one day I'll get into it, but right now, I'll leave you in vague transparency. And even though I FEEL like it doesn’t make sense to do this right now, I KNOW that it actually makes the most sense. We don't always have to project a false reality that everything is perfect; sometimes its ok to not be ok and to say that you’re not ok. And I know that it was not by accident that this song was the next on my lis...

Hey, watch this first! ^

Isaiah 54:10: "Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,’ says the Lord, who has compassion on you.”

Re-read the scripture above. Instead of just skimming over it, ask God to make it come alive to you. Sometimes scriptures I’ve heard my whole life will in a moment become real to me. Sometimes we don’t need a bunch of eloquent words, we just need THE Word. It’s alive, it’s powerful, it has the ability to change and open hearts. It is a lamp to our feet, a light for our path.

“My unfailing love for you will not be shaken.” Even though things might feel shaky, or there may not seem to be a way out of your chaos, the truth is- our hope is not in our family, our hope is not in our cou...

Watch this ^ :)

In January 2016, my husband Maison and I took the first couple days and set aside time to get away to intentionally plan for the year ahead. We took an online goal setting class (we’re really that nerdy) and came up with our goals and action steps. My most daunting goal was recording my own music. I’ve always dreamed of it, but like most things if you’re not intentional about it, it doesn’t happen.

Fast forward to the last day in May (half the year has gone by) when I realized I had not written one single song and hadn’t done a thing to accomplish my goal. So, I decided I was going to take on a the task of writing a song every day for the whole month of June. While I didn’t actually write a complete song every single day, I tried. And I wrote a lot of bad songs which eventuall...

No matter how I start this, nothing seems to be good enough; no words suffice. It feels like the end of a hard and exhilarating season and also the beginning of a new era.

I feel like a bride who spent a year preparing for her wedding day. All of the planning and preparing and stress and excitement leading up to that day is over all too quickly, yet at the same time she has a lifetime of new adventures awaiting her.

I want to say to everyone reading this, that I am beyond humbled by your support. Encouraged is an understatement. God has used so many of you to speak life and belief into my SOUL. Thank you!

Many of you have been following along with me since November of last year as I announced my kickstarter campaign, raised the money, recorded in Nashville, anticipated and awaited the release, FINALLY r...

So here it is. I can’t believe I’m in this place. Great, I already have tears welling up and I’ve written one sentence.

God is so just faithful. He is so present. He is so persistent.

I can’t tell you how hard it was for me to get to this place of vulnerability: physically, emotionally, spiritually, ALL THE WAYS. But at every single step, he has mirrored it and proven Himself faithful. He doesn’t ask you to step out and not walk with you.

Something I’ve come back to and held onto throughout this process is one of my life’s quotes from Marianne Williamson:

“Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within...
