Have you ever wondered what it would be like to hear God's voice more frequently?
Do you feel like you need a deeper sense of calm??
Could you use a boost of love?

In every heart there lies a deep need to be known. To know that you are loved and that you matter. For some of us, this is easy. We were surrounded by people who love us. But even in that sense of safety and love, there is a hunger for something more.
Some of us never knew safety and love. Some of us struggle to know who we are and what our purpose in life is.
I’m somewhere in between the soft place and the rough place. The soft place is living in a culture that is safe. I did not grow up in a war or real poverty. I had the freedom to dream and expect that my dreams could be accomplished.
I had a lot of dreams in my younger days of being an artist of some kind. I loved creating music and creating other works of art like photography and drawing and storytelling.
I had my journey all figured out too. From a world perspective, it was obvious that I should pursue a career in the arts. I studied songwriting and drama and photography. I went to the Mecca cities of Los Angeles and Nashville and was about to go to the final Mecca of New York to pursue a career and acting – singing – theatre.
Searching for more …
What I didn’t know was that I was searching. Searching for some kind of meaning. I wanted to touch souls in a beautiful way through the arts, but I also wanted to feel alive. Being on stage made me feel alive. In a backward sort of way, it made me feel loved. It made me feel important. Isn’t that what we are all searching for? To feel important and to feel loved?
As I was about to cross the bridge to New York, and to what I thought was going to be fulfillment, I was about to cross another bridge that I didn’t know existed.
To say that I didn’t know God was not true. I did know him, but it was more like I just knew who he was. I knew he was all around and with me, but I didn’t know him. I was searching for him in my own way. I searched for him in many places. In people, in books, on TV, in movies, and entertainers.
I grew up going to church, but it was something that I had put behind me as antiquated and not fulfilling. I couldn’t appreciate it at the time, but later I saw that It was a great foundation that I was standing on. But, had no understanding of the real purpose of it, or the main event …
The main event is one simple thing. Relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Intimacy with God.
That’s what I’m about. Though I write songs, create stories and art prints, sweet intimacy with God is by far my favorite subject. Creating a space where I’m connecting with my creator, father, and friend.
