River in My Heart

I am really excited about this new blog!  
This blog is dedicated to my creative self.  
It is a channel for the 
river in my heart 
to flow out and be heard.  

Since I was a little girl I have loved music.  I love to sing write songs and poetry and I even love visual art.  Over the past few years I have dedicated almost all my energy towards founding a ministry, my other passion.  I have given my heart and soul towards sharing the love of the Father with children in need.  You can read all about that story here on my other blog.  While my experience serving in Africa has brought me so much joy and has been so enriching to my life, I began to neglect the river of creativity that was flowing inside of me.  I began to create less and less.  When I did try to create, it wasn't from the same place.  

Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.  ~Victor Hugo

However, I am coming back to the river, to swim and drink and let it flow again!  :)  And Im so happy about it.  I can feel the smile of God on this too.  God told me recently that I made one of my greatest passions a side dish instead of a main course in my life, so this is one of my first steps back towards living as the artist that I am.  

I am also thankful for all the experiences I have had working as a missionary the past several years.  I know these deep and rich experiences will continue to fuel my writing as well.  May I  be a voice for the voiceless!  

This blog is going to be my journey...messy wild and free.  I invite you to come with me as I journey back to this place and back to using a gift of writing and creativity again.  Back to a place of soaking in the rivers within and letting them flow out and create life.  Here I'll post my poetry, song lyrics, my thoughts on the process, and any other random things that flow out.  :)  I would love your feedback and comments along the way!  Feel free to subscribe and comment or leave me any resources or links that might help me out as I go.  

I recorded and released a project in 2009 which you can purchase now on itunes here.  I hope to have new projects not too far in the future!  This feel so good!  

Here we go!!!!!  Get excited!!!  I know I am!  :)
