It is our joy to share with you the music, the art, the stories and love of creatively enjoying God in the everyday.  We hope that all of it will inspire and stir you to adore Jesus more, and that you may experience the renewal, restoration, comfort and profound love that is only found in His presence! We believe that as you allow your spirit to rejoice and worship Him, He will fulfill his promise “that as you draw near to God, He will draw near to you.” (James 4:8)

We have a loving Creator who wants us to enjoy nature and beauty and take time to notice the small things, smell the roses, and muse about His creation.  On this journey, we grow to look for the beauty God wants us to discover in the everyday life that we live.  Just as we are people with many facets and wear different hats, such as mom, piano teacher, artist, sound engineer, analyst, musician; no matter what activity becomes our profession, we are created to live connected to Him and keep His word in our hearts. And it’s only by His grace that we can even seek Him. For without Him, we can do nothing. (John 15:5). Still, He shows us His love every day and speaks gently to our hearts, to come away, to spend a little time with Him just as Jesus said in Matthew 11:28-29, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”

We pray that the scriptures, blog, art, and worship music offer a source of encouragement to you. We are truly blessed that you have come to visit us!
