Artists are sensitive.
And that’s a good thing. A real good thing.
Not everyone feels what we feel…
sees what we see…
hears what we hear.
So we need to help them feel. see. hear.
God placed his creative spirit inside each of us. For reasons beyond our comprehension, some have the capacity to hold more of that spirit than others. And that’s okay. We were all created with a unique ability to interpret the world around us. And each of us interprets this world a little differently. We can’t all be artists. The world needs scientists, engineers, and accountants, too.
See God is big and mysterious and beyond our understanding. Made in his image, each of us reflects a tiny glimpse of him. As we live our lives in the unique way he designed us to live, we reflect God’s glory to a lost, broken, and sometimes very dark world–desperately in need of His light, and glory, and goodness.
My passion is to encourage the artist, to nurture the creative spirit within, so that together we can reflect His radiant light.

Hi Jody, I am so excited!!! I was getting frustrated wondering what in the world to give my hubby of 46 years for Christmas – after all this time he has everything! Well as a new pastor he sure didn’t have your album and wow is he going to love his Christmas present! Your voice is incredible and I do hope he shares, 🙂
Oh I am so glad!!! I pray he is deeply blessed as he listens — that he is taken into the Lord’s presence in a deep and powerful way!!
