Sisters With You

  “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched–they must be felt with the heart.” ~Helen Keller   (Refrain) Sisters, I wanna be Sisters With you! We’ll have our trying times, Our tears and our laughs, Oh, I wanna be Sisters With you!   Verse One: I don’t…

The Surest One

  The last few months there has been some painful family drama.  Without going into details, I was recently thinking about one particular person involved in the whole thing and just feeling sadness and pain because of their choices and how those choices were affecting others and, in the long run, themselves. A lot of…

Quiet Listening

This is a song that I started last year August-September time. At the time things were rather tumultuous and I often felt that God was silent. Writing this song helped me remember that God is always listening to the deepest cries of my heart. I finished the last two verses within the last week sometime. Child: When…

I’m Free

This is actually a song that looks boring at first glance, but it is my  “declaration of independence” song. I wrote this in a time of brokenness last March. I was so very broken, but I could feel God pulling off the chains and the taste of sweet freedom was so contagious I couldn’t contain myself from…

I’ve Got a Baby

This is a song that I wrote when my first child was a baby. He calls it his “baby song”.  🙂 I’ve got a baby, He is cute, cute, cute, Cute, cute, cute, Cute, cute, cute. I’ve got a baby, He is cute, cute, cute And I love him oh! so much! I’ve got a…

Loving Arms

I wrote this song in 2012. My mom had called me to talk to me about one of my aunt’s, who was struggling with her mental health, to consult with me on what to do. Mom and I have worked on my own mental health through various means over the years. After the phone call I…

For Evy

This song has quite the story around it. This song was written while in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) with my second newborn son. The initial birth went well, in spite of the fact that I was extremely emotionally and physically exhausted, even before I went into labor. After he was born they put him…

Trust Jesus

This is a song I actually wrote last week. I was singing my kids their “baby songs” (I haven’t posted those yet, but will do that here soon) and my oldest piped up that there was no “trusting Jesus in my song”. I told him that I’d been thinking for a while of writing him…

Baby’s Coming

This song is one that I wrote for my first child when I was expecting my second. My first child was quite young when I found out I was expecting another, and I wanted to find a way to share the news with him that he might understand. I remember having him on my lap…

Resurrection

This is a song that I wrote a few years back. I was going through a lot at the time, and sometimes when I’m going through tough times, playing the piano is such a comfort to me. There have been a lot of times when I’ve sat down at the piano and somehow my fingers found a…

Jesus’ Favor On Me Beams

It’s been almost ten years since I wrote the words to this song. It was the result of my quiet time with God over the period of a few days. The verses are the same tune as the hymn “Softly Now the Light of Day“, but the chorus is my own. I hope you enjoy…

Brave Enough To Love

I want to be brave enough. I want to be strong enough. I want to be brave enough To love you The way that is needed And always stands on truth— The way that reaches into your heart. Brave enough to stand up tall. Brave enough to try. Brave enough to love again. Brave enough…
