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

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.
