Christmas in September

This summer while most of us were celebrating warm, sunny weather and enjoying time with family, I was humming Christmas carols! I started working on some new Christmas music last spring, and producer Billy Smiley helped flesh out my ideas…

Happy Spring all my friends and prayer warriors out there!   

I thought I would send the latest 'video blog' from my 'back yard' to encourage anyone who is praying and believing for something or someone. Keep praying, keep believing…

the lowest place

Christmas came early for me last night, and my heart is completely full....no need for further celebration though there are still gifts to be exchanged and family gatherings to be enjoyed! For four years, I have travelled to Bellamy Creek…
