Singing has always been a part of my life. I don’t remember a time it wasn’t. I was born in Grand Island, Nebraska in 1980 on August 24th! My dad reminded me today that I was “planned!” He said that the Lord told him it was time to have another baby. And so it was meant to be!
I was raised most of my life in a small town called Norton in the north west corner of Kansas. One of my favorite parts about that is my church, Norton Christian Church. I spent more days than I can count there and basically lived in a 15 passenger van traveling on Bible Bowl, Youth Group, Youth Choir, and Missions trips. I spent my summers at Church Camp and every other day in between doing something with my youth group friends. And when I wasn’t singing I was dancing. When I was little I would blast either 50’s rock or Tina Turner and I made up my own choreography. Of course it was amazing!!
It may surprise some people to find this out but I was always a little bit shy about performing in front of people. Somehow though I would get over it and go ahead and sing the solo or lead the worship. I still feel like this sometimes. Something happened to me at a young age (3 to be exact) that marked me for life. My mom told me about Jesus. She said He would be with me always and that I would never be alone. I said yes to that friendship and I have never been the same. He has won my heart. And that is who I sing to and for! I want to share these songs that he has put inside of me. There has been a lot of joy in my life but with it there has been a lot of pain. For me singing has been the greatest relief and release of both of those things. God knew what He was doing when He made me and the same goes for you!

I think the most interesting thing about loss is the way each one is different. I lost my Mom suddenly in a car accident in 2006 and my Dad slowly through cancer starting in 2017. And a month ago today we lost our baby in the womb to miscarriage. It is so weird to me …
Where do you go when you are in pain, sad, frustrated, hurting. Who do you run to? I often run to food, send a voice mail, numb out on my phone. Last week I spoke at a conference and found the words tumbling out of my mouth. I challenged everyone listening to pause in those …
