Growing up in the small town of Townsend, Montana I have had the pleasure of living a simple country girl life. I like for things to be simple and to the point. God, I believe, is also simple and to the point and he has given me songs that implement life in an easy simple to understand way. I feel blessed everyday to have a personal relationship with my Lord and Savior. As a twelve year old girl God gave me the song, Home, which is on my first recording. As a little girl, I pondered a lot of questions, Why do we cry when people die? Why are we sad when we say goodbye, arenít we going to heaven someday? What is going to happen to me when I die? These questions are the same questions that everyone faces whether they are twelve or eighty years old. God answered my question through that song. If I except Jesus as my God then I will go to a place I call home, and spend eternity with my Heavenly Father.
God has a plan for everyone, it is whether you choose to follow it or not that matters.
In my walk with Christ, I have seen my path come together. I have had wonderful times and I have had tough times, but through it all God has shown me his love and grace and I am honored and privileged to be singing to my Father everyday. I donít know what God has planned for me at this point, but I do know that if I am willing to do as God has called, then He will use me in more ways than I can think of.I hope this CD gives you hope and encouragement that even though the world can be a scary place, we have something so great to look forward to that our minds canít even fathom it. A place I call Home
God Bless you
