The goodness of God never ceases to amaze me, and music illustrates the point for me. Our awesome God designs His children in such a way that using their gifts glorifies Him, delights others, and brings great joy to them. If it is true that “God is most glorified in me when I am most satisfied in Him,” then my satisfaction in and enjoyment of music in all its dimensions surely must praise and honor Him.

I have loved all kinds of music for as long as I can remember. Whether making up songs, falling asleep with the radio tucked under my pillow, dancing, or playing the piano, music has long been an outlet for personal pleasure as well as worship. Cutting “Testimony of Grace” with Adam fulfilled a dream encouraged for years by friends and family who, for some reason, always wanted us to sing, and keep singing. I’m grateful for the investment of teachers and critics from my days of playing “Chopsticks” on the piano and wisping through “Tan Shoes and Pink Shoelaces” to directing the EXCEL choir and singing with our friends at Park Cities Presbyterian Church.

When not singing, I enjoy spending time with family and friends (made all that more delightful when it involves coffee), reading everything from John Piper to Elizabeth Peters (especially when it’s cold and rainy outside and I’m curled up under a fleecy blanket), and exercising (whether it’s jogging, Pilates, or downhill skiing). My goals for this year include continuing to pursue a Masters degree through Westminster Seminary, getting my manuscript published – finally! – and singing as much as possible.
