When I was six years old, I sang on stage in my first solo competition in front of an audience of about 300 people. Receiving an award of a First place, blue ribbon and silver cup, made me feel as though I was a star! Growing up, my neighbors had to endure my singing as loud as I could through the top pipe of my backyard swingset. Probably a good thing that I lived in the country. I wrote down my first song when I was nine years old. Constantly, my head was filled with little jingles about everyday life. Finally, when I was sixteen, I realized I should be writing this stuff down. My home had an old upright piano that was almost always way out of tune, but, I managed to create music for my songs. I have written over 200 songs. God has blessed me with the opportunity to work with the children of our church. It was an awesome opportunity to work as the children's worship and music leader for 5 years. During that time, I wrote and directed plays and songs for them to perform. God has also blessed me with the opportunity to record my first CD "Freedom of the Heart" in 2003. Friends and family supported me by purchasing my CD before it was made. THANK YOU! Currently, I served on our praise and worship team for about five years. It has been a wonderful experience! And, what could top singing on stage with "BUILDING 429" in Mt. Pleasant, MI. Thank you guys, I had so much fun!! I am a single mom with 2 teenage boys and an adult son. It has been my lifelong dream to make a living just doing what I love, writing and singing. I am not sure what God is going to bless me with next. But, I know I'm going to love it!

Favorite Bible Verses / Passages:
I know what is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through,Him who gives me strength. Phillipians 4:12-13
