The Prologue is Released

April 5 was a big day for me! My five-song EP, The Prologue, was released on Amazon.

Tons of people asked me what it felt like. Honestly, it felt like I had given birth to my baby, a big fat baby that I'd been carrying for a solid number of months! And yes, like all moms, I think my baby is pretty goshdarn beautiful haha. Here she is:

This whole thing has been a whirlwind for me. I'm just so thankful that I'm finally stepping out and pursuing my dream. God is so amazing. I thought I had everything when I pursued what the world told me I wanted. But He called me back to Him. It's funny because I thought I gave up everything up to follow Him. But what I've gotten from Him has been worth so much more than what I've left behind. He's given me back my dreams.

Now, I have more than I could ever hope for because I know who I am and what I'm supposed to do in this life. I feel like these two things had gotten lost somewhere along the way, and it took a series of divine encounters to bring me back to life, the life that I was born to live.

There's this one book that I love. It's for kids, so I love it. It's called Today I Will Fly:

The pig thinks it will fly one day. The elephant is convinced that the pig is crazy. I used to feel like I was both the pig and the elephant at the same time, with both passion and practicality battling each other out. I used to tell myself some mornings, "Today, I'm gonna fly!" Shoot, I still have to tell myself that sometimes. I think it's a daily thing, a conscious choice to let go of fears and hold onto faith. But I feel like I'm finally doing it, and that, to me, is greater than any number of CDs I sell. I was born to sing, to make music, to love God, and to help others. I know these things. There were times when I was walking forward in complete darkness, not knowing where I was going or how I was going to get there. But I'm glad I kept walking. Because I kept trusting and walking, I've seen things come together miraculously, both in my life and in the making of this EP.

I was at the park the other day, and I saw this written in my swing:

It straight up says, "Miracle." How appropriate. This CD is a miracle. My salvation is a miracle. And I know that I can expect more miracles to come.

So yes, go ahead and get through life believing in your dreams.

I'm getting your album! Those clips sound awesome. And that pig there reminds me of an author's motto: Ad Astra Per Alia Porci - John Steinberg God bless.

Is the album out in Asia? I can't get your album on iTunes because my US credit card expired! :( I'll have to wait to get it sent from Amazon. Meantime, I can only feed on those 1 min clips.
