Tell us abouT your new album.
My new album is called Glorious mess (Crimson
Pink/New Day) and it releases March 30th, 2010 on
iTunes as well as LifeWay and other Christian retailers. This
album has something for everyone from the varying styles
of music to the messages the songs convey.
How would you describe THe music on
The music on this album is an eclectic mix that
reflects the journey that God has brought me through while
making this project. The styles run the gambit from edgy
rock to relaxed acoustic brought together cohesively by the
message of the faithfulness of God, be it in the struggles we
go through in life to the value we find in His unfailing love.
How do you approacH sonGwriTinG?
I have been writing since I was a child starting
with the practice of journaling that my mother
encouraged me to do. From that has grown a repertoire
of poems, short stories and song lyrics stemming from
the personal experiences that God has allowed me to be
a part of.
Whatever I happen to be working on creatively, be it a song
lyric, poem or monologue, I find that I draw on things that
not only are relevant to my experiences at the moment but
also experiences and influences that span my entire life.
wHaT inspires you?
Overcoming challenges inspires me. When
I have found myself in situations that
have seemed hopeless or overwhelming, I have
found that digging in and leaning into Christ
during these times can bring about the most
beautiful things. In fact, I recently had the
opportunity to be introduced the work of
Mercy Ministries. The incredible challenges that
these young women are facing, yet experiencing
victory through Christ in is incredibly motivating and
inspiring to me. I can identify with many of the issues
Mercy deals with. It’s always exciting to see people face
the issues that threaten to defeat them head-on with
the truth of Christ.
wHaT life evenTs of laTe Have Helped To
sHape your perspecTive and, in Turn,
In the last several years I have faced losing my sister to
a terminal illness, my husband losing his job and other
personal family issues that have created an atmosphere
where I have had to grow in my dependence on Christ.
Because of this I feel like the songs on this album as well
as the emotion and performance comes from an honest
place of desperation and ultimately redemption and
peace found in Christ.
