Her first single 'Hardest Time of Year' is close to her heart. It is a song meant to help us look outside of ourselves to see those who are hurting and to be there for them. The song was written the first year she became a single Mom to her six children, after 15 years in an abusive marriage. She has since found healing and restoration in her life, an amazing husband and 4 beautiful step-children. However, she never forgets the struggle and would like to encourage others. Christmas is a beautiful time of year, but for some it is the hardest time of year.
