This album tells a story of heartbreak, surrender, and hope! A journey of healing and finding peace in a way you wouldn’t expect.
This is what we’ve all been waiting for! I’m so excited to have you all be apart of my first Nashville record! I’ve been waiting for YEARS to be able to have a project I could call my own and watch God use music to minister to those I meet. The Bible tells us to use our talents, so here I go. 🙂
From the video, you’ll see that the record has much to do with a specific phase of my life. Three years ago, my older sister Laura was diagnosed with a rare form of stage 4 lung cancer. Finding out she was in the hospital and there wasn’t much the doctors could do was devastating. However, I knew God would be there through it all. Laura struggled only for a few weeks before the disease claimed her earthly body. However, it would be more than those few weeks that my family and I would grieve and struggle will our loss.
Laura was my cheerleader, and she always found ways to challenge and encourage me to keep chasing my dream and sing loud. It only made sense that my first record would somehow be for her. Her illness pushed me toward my relationship with God like nothing had before, and her death plumetted me into relying on Jesus for every day. “The Giving Up” is my release of emotion and the healing process of losing someone I loved so dearly. This album encompasses my side of the journey, and hopefully offers help to others that have tasted similar pain.
We will be recording a 6 song EP to share some of my story and put out some great music! Writing with other great musicians, along with my husband has been a wonderful experience. I’ve learned a lot about song writing, music and even myself that I wouldn’t have learned without going through the process.
It IS expensive! I need your help to make it a success! We set our goal at 8,000 dollars, but we’re hoping to blow that out of the water to provide the best quality and carry on the ministry long after the record is complete! Careful! I know someone that raised 70 grand, so the standard is set high…(wink, wink). The big risk comes if we do not raise a minimum of 8,000 dollars, none of the money will come through and you won’t be charged for your donation. So please get out there and spread this page like wildfire all over Facebook, Twitter, and tell all of your grandmas that we need their help!
The rewards are worth it! We want to make sure you are getting something great (even though you should pay a worthy sum just for the awesome music)! We will be good stewards of your funds, and will respect everyone’s decision to make sure you get the best for your buck! You are important, and this ministry wouldn’t be anything without YOU.
Thank you, THANK YOU for all of your support and your prayers!
