So excited to announce that I'm making a new record and we started recording in January! 

        I really struggled with writing for this record because it's been a challenging year and I had major writers block for a while. I prayed for a long time that God would enable me and empower me to write, and that He would entrust me with songs that were HIS words and HIS melodies. I prayed that every song would make much of HIM and not me. I feel as though God gave me this chunk of Psalm 51  when I felt Him calling me to go and make another record. 

Bring me back from grey exile, put a fresh wind in my sails! Give me a job teaching rebels your ways so the lost can find their way home. Unbutton my lips, dear God; I’ll let loose with your praise!
Going through the motions doesn’t please you, a flawless performance is nothing to you. I learned God worship when my pride was shattered.
— Psalm 51: 12-17

God answered every prayer. He is so good and loving and faithful. He will enable and equip you to do what He has called you to do.   

Now all that being said... This is the verse I'm clinging to during this very exciting, stressful, emotional, challenging, inspiring, beautiful, and painful process of making this record. 

Let us strip off every sin that so cleverly entangles us and let us run with patient, steady, active, persistent endurance the appointed course that has been set before us. Looking away from all that distracts from Jesus.
— Hebrews 12: 1-2

I'm meditating on that and applying it to how I approach this next season of making new music. Stop being so easily held down with the unnecessary weight of sin! Envy, jealousy, bitterness, and gossip! whatever it is, i'm laying it at His feet so I can run the course set before me, looking away from everything that keeps my eyes on me, or others, and takes them off of Jesus.


I greatly appreciate your encouragement, support, and prayers and I'll keep you updated on this new adventure!
