Today is the Day!

Ladies and gentlemen, I proudly present to you my new album.  Epiphany is officially available to download and stream on all of your favorite media platforms.


The best place to buy the physical album is on my BandCamp page.  You can get the CD and digital download for $10.  That’s a steal!

Special thanks to everyone who helped make this dream possible.  I couldn’t have done it without you.  I hope you enjoy Epiphany!


Buy the Album


Epiphany Arrived!

The reviews are in, and according to Cass Baker (one of my dogs),

“This CD is delicious. I tasted it myself.”


Pre-Order Epiphany Today

I can’t believe it!  This is all so surreal.  I mean, really, this was still in the idea-stage a few months ago.


Check back soon for more updates, as we get closer to Epiphany’s release!

We Did It!

For those of you who haven’t heard, we flew across the finish line last week.

Epiphany is fully funded!


This week I sent off the album to be manufactured into physical CDs, as well as to be globally distributed digitally on all of your favorite media platforms.

I am expecting the CDs to get here at the beginning of next month, which means those who donated toward the campaign will be getting their goodies mailed to them asap.  I’m thinking mid-March—prayers are appreciated!

Through the rest of the month of February, I am offering a CD and poster for a donation of $20.  You can make your donation on GoFundMe to pre-order, or send me a message for other options.  I have a limited supply of the posters, so don’t miss out on this deal! ❤


I will have the digital album available on iTunes for pre-order on March 7th.  So, for those of you who prefer downloading straight off the internet, mark your calendars!  The official release date of both the physical and digital album is:

March 14th

Epiphany Poster

I am so excited.  In the weeks ahead, be on the lookout for another music video in preparation of Epiphany‘s release.

Talk to you more soon!

Paper Chains

Oh, the possibilities . . . 

Paper Chains Video Cover

Good evening, friends!  I just wanted to let you know that I released another music video with a song off my upcoming album, Epiphany.

Paper Chains, much like Fallen Man, also includes some spoken word.  Check it out!


We are a little over 60% funded for the Epiphany Campaign.  For the month of February, everyone who gives a donation of $20 or more will receive a physical copy of the album (when it is released) AND a poster!  This is just for the month of February, so be sure not to miss out.

I just put in an order for the posters over the weekend, and I am so excited with how they turned out.  I can’t wait to show them to you!

Have a great week!

Epiphany Update: We Made it Over 50%!

We hit a big milestone over the weekend, friends!  My GoFundMe campaign (to raise funds to manufacture my new album) took a big jump and is now 61% funded.  That means, we only have $395 to go.


Here’s a video update I just posted with more details, as well as a silly little dog of mine making a cameo appearance—don’t blink or you’ll miss it!


For every donation of $20 or more, you will receive a copy of Epiphany when it is officially released.

Thank you so much for taking the time to watch my update.  Have a great week!

The Call of Love

I picked up a book this morning that I haven’t read in a bit. In fact, I finally unpacked my box of books a week ago for the first time since we moved last summer.

It’s called, “Come Away My Beloved” by Frances J. Roberts. My mother gave me the devotional for Christmas nearly a decade ago.   It is written in old English. So, bare with me if you are not as big a nerd as myself—I am, after all, the girl who decided to read all the works of Shakespeare one summer in high school (for fun).

I turned to the first section:

The Call of Love

I read it a few times, underlining a particular paragraph that I felt led to share with you today:

“Tarry not for an opportunity to have more time to be alone with Me. Take it, though ye leave the tasks at hand. Nothing will suffer. Things are of less importance than ye think. Our time together is like a garden full of flowers, whereas the time ye give to things is as a field full of stubble.”

I made a huge change recently. That change was unplugging from the internet more than 80% of the day. I used to multitask to the point where it was becoming detrimental to my routine.

When I left my day job to make Awake to Dream Studios my full time job, I had to eliminate everything that would keep me from staying focused.

It probably sounds odd.

I mean, everything I do is internet based and requires access to social media. But I learned the value of pouring all of my brainpower into the tasks at hand. I began to plan out my posts and online strategies well in advance. I scheduled my updates to post automatically, which freed up my hands to work elsewhere.

In the end, I didn’t need my phone pinging every time I had a message or notification. I found out I could be much more productive by checking my profiles and email at a specific time in the day, and then moving on with my projects.

What did I end up with?

Quality time in my studio and more finished projects.

Also, my prayer life has greatly increased without the added distractions. That, to me, is way more important than any of my other endeavors. If that area suffers, so does every other part of my life.


So, I pondered that paragraph, waited on the Lord for a moment and turned to Proverbs.

I laughed as I read the title of the chapter in my bible:

The Call of Wisdom

“Wisdom cries aloud in the street, in the markets she raises her voice; at the head of the noisy streets she cries out; at the entrance of the city gates she speaks:

“How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple? How long will scoffers delight in their scoffing and fools hate knowledge? 

If you turn at my reproof, behold I will pour out my spirit to you; I will make my words known to you.”

—Proverbs 1:20-23

“Tarry not.”

All that we are longing for can be made fulfilled in His presence. Whatever we need, He already has supplied.

This is a call to a higher standard of living. He has already reached out, and is waiting, to meet with us.

The present is all we have, as we watch time melt away without delay.

These temporal things that capture our attention are nothing in comparison to the love and the wisdom that calls out to each one of us.

There is no promise of tomorrow. There is only today.

“Nothing will suffer. Things are of less importance than ye think.”

In Hindsight Unplugged Art


I wrote In Hindsight early this morning.  I’ve had an interesting few days.  Days filled with pondering decisions on opportunities that have been knocking at my door.

Last night, I sat in my car with tears streaming down my face and talked to my wonderful husband about music and my dreams that coincide with music.  We talked about past opportunities, offers, big doors that had swung open to me in my late teens and early twenties.

We talked about how I felt it was very good I had turned down certain opportunities.  How God had protected me so many times from walking down roads that would have left me empty and feeling compromised.

My twenty-eighth birthday is creeping around the corner, quickly, and I feel such a stillness in my heart about where I am and where God is leading me.

You see, I’ve had some opportunities open since the year began.  Doors that could lead me to places I probably would have lost my mind over when I was younger.

It’s almost been like God has opened these doors to solidify what He has already told me.

Apart from Him, nothing else matters.

Life is temporal, so I’m living for the eternal.

I trust that He will show me the doors I need to walk through, and that He will shut the doors I need to pass by.

That’s why I had tears last night.  Because I knew what He had promised was certain. I knew that if I honored Him with my music that He would honor my music.

I had tears because of that stillness.  I knew for certain that opportunities will come, but I don’t need to step out in desperation.

Perhaps this will bring courage to someone else.  That’s why I’m writing this.

I’m making In Hindsight available to download for FREE on NoiseTrade and SoundCloud.  I hope it brings some peace into your day.




Loving Beyond My Comfort Zone


Shasta Trees Fog_4190

This year my resolution is simple.

I want to love people more than I love my comfort zone.

You’re right, it’s not actually simple.  It requires me to step out in the face of discomfort and embrace the awkward moments.

You know what I’m talking about.

Those moments when you get an itch to take action in a way that feels completely out of the box.  You may appear crazy, but I guess . . . who cares if you look crazy?

I don’t.

As I get older, each year has brought an increased revelation of the fragility of life.  People have told me, all my life, that time seems to go faster with each season.

Life is too short to not take the risk of feeling awkward.

And people are worth more than time and energy combined.  They are precious.

The world is full of diamonds in the rough.

We can’t reach them all, I know.  But we can start by being faithful with the ones we have the pleasure of knowing.  Even if it’s only for a blip on the radar of our lives.  That blip matters.

Just by loving them more than your comfort zone.

Maybe your love will heal some of their brokenness.
