WRITING AND SPEAKING OUT FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE AND CHANGE 

Over the last few months, my writing ministry has taken me in a direction that in one sense is unexpected and in another makes perfect sense: to write for, and raise awareness about writing for, social justice and change. I believe that we as writers have incredible potential and power in our hands to educate and influence for the betterment of society beyond sharing the gospel. 

I am so excited that this coming summer I will be leading a workshop for elementary-aged children on that very topic. Raising…

ALTERNATE BEGINNING FOR MY CHILDREN'S BOOK "THE TWO TREES" 


Although the story that eventually became the foundation of my first children’s picture book The Two Trees (2015) had been rattling around in my head for a while, I hadn't actually written anything down until I took an online course called “Write a Children’s Picture Book” from award-winning author Alice Kuipers a few years ago.

It was an incredibly exciting experience. So it’s no wonder that one of the first songs I wrote for my album was full of joy, anticipation, and…

"YOUR VOICE IS YOUR INSTRUMENT" 

Yesterday as I was choosing worship songs for our upcoming Sunday service, I came across the song “All Heaven Declares” by Noel & Tricia Richards (© 1987), inspired by Psalm 19:1. It stirred a memory in me, one that was infinitely significant in my journey as a musician. Let me explain.
 
In the mid-1990s, my husband, young children, and I moved to a new church and I was just starting to find my place there as a worship team member. Although I had been singing for a number of years on my own, I did not have…

MY SCARIEST MOMENT OF 2015, AND THE POWER OF PRAYER 

One Friday evening in the spring of 2015, my husband and I attended an author friend’s book launch in a cozy local coffee shop. It had been a long week and I was fatigued, but it was important for me to be there to support my friend. My husband and I ordered hot drinks—I had a cup of camomile tea, my favourite—and for a treat, I ordered a gluten-free muffin for me and some cake for my husband.
 
It was a gorgeous evening, and it was lovely to sit back and marvel at the colours of the sunset sky through the…
