I was raised in Arkansas around Country, Bluegrass, and Southern Gospel music. I started singing in church when I was about eight years old.
My Dad was the pastor and he played the piano for me. I grew up singing around the piano at home with my family. Music has always been a big part of my Dad and Mom's ministry, so it is just part of who I am. I spent seven years in full time ministry as a pastor and associate pastor, but I think the music has always been the most effective part of the ministry. I believe this is my calling, so I am pursuing it with my whole heart. I want to make a difference. I want to share music with a message of hope for a broken world. Religion about ruined my relationship with God, so I hope to be able to help people focus on relationship over religion. God REALLY wants us to know him! He really wants fellowship with us, and that is really what we need, not religious exercises that leave us empty and broken. Much love and God Bless!
