CCM: How would you describe your style and sound?
JJ Heller: When people ask, I say singer/songwriter or
acoustic folk. My husband would say that it’s soft-spoken
CCM: You’ve given a lot of your time to World Vision.
How does that play into your music and mission?
Heller: I started sponsoring a little girl named Lydia
when I heard a musician talk about sponsorship from
the stage. It’s hard to believe, but that was
over ten years ago. I’m so amazed by how
far our small monthly donation can go to
provide for a child in poverty. Not only does
my gift go toward immediate needs, but it
also gives a child (and their community) a
reason to hope for the future. We’ve been so
impressed by World Vision’s ministry that we
now sponsor four children and do all we can
to encourage others to do the same.
CCM: How does being a mom play into your
music and ministry?
Heller: It definitely makes it a lot harder to
find time to write songs! Seriously though,
since our daughter, Lucy, was born, I’ve
experienced a whole new dimension of love.
It gives me a new glimpse into the heart of
our heavenly Father. My love for my daughter
has inspired a number of songs, and I’m sure
she’ll inspire many more to come.
