I am a wife, a mom of three daughters, Tex-Mex & coffee lover - and a worship leader based out of the Houston, TX area. I have been leading worship over the past 14 years and I love encouraging others to a deeper understanding and connection to their Creator through God honoring, Spirit filled environments. The presence of the Lord has the ability to captivate our hearts, to shape us and form us to be more like Him, and spur us to greater things. We find it when we seek, trust, and obey. The more we seek, even if its wrestling with God, the more we are filled up by His power and encouraged to rejoice in the joy of knowing Jesus.
I love that God has given us music and song to express ourselves to Him. Writing music for me has always been something I desired to do from a young age, but it wasn’t until the past few years that God gave me songs to write. I am so glad He has been gracious enough to allow me to not only write them, but also record and share them with you and continue writing.
In addition to leading worship, I am passionate about encouraging and developing the leadership skills of those in worship ministry. It is not an easy job, and my personal journey as a worship leader has had a lot of ups and downs including wanting to quit just a short year ago. While I am grateful the Lord had other plans, one thing I realized through that time was the desire He placed on my heart to come alongside others in ministry and support and create worship ministries that are genuinely focused on the pursuit of the Lord through the intentional development of skills, living in community, and encouragement.
I’m so thrilled to share Changing Still with you. From writing these songs to recording them, the journey the Lord has taken me on in the last two years has been life changing. I hope these songs He has given me to share encourage you wherever you are. My prayer is that you will see and hear the Lord as you listen to these songs and hymns...that I would become less and He would be made known and revealed to you.
"But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God."
