I lead worship through song with Doxa, the band and vocal team at my church, Epiphany Fellowship.
On Tuesday 1/13/2015, we released “Hosanna,” the single from our debut album, Centered. It’s available on iTunes and Amazon.
Working on this project has been like raising a baby–really, two babies, since it has grown right alongside our own precious daughter!
The earliest budget draft was done before she was even conceived. We couldn’t move forward because we didn’t have adequate funding.
During a conversation with a group of worship pastors in January 2013, my husband and I shared our heart and vision for resourcing urban churches with more contextualized music. These generous men offered to pursue funding for the album. I was 6 months pregnant.
My husband & I were literally at the keyboard at home recording vocal parts for rehearsals (including songs from the album) when my water broke–the day before Mother’s Day!
Everything after that is a blur. 😄
Our baby girl turned 11 months old the day after the live recording in April 2014…and she turned 20 months the day the single was released.
Wow. Only. God.
For my husband and I, each of these moments is a “stone of remembrance,” reminding us of the faithfulness of God through the whole process. When we couldn’t see the end with our physical eyes, God gave us eyes of faith to trust Him to bring the project to completion. And those same eyes of faith are still fixing themselves on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of faith, and asking Him to use this album to bear fruit whose impact lingers into eternity.
Centered is available for digital pre-orders on iTunes and Amazon. The album will be released on Friday, 1/30/2015.
