I’ve been involved in music most of my life. As the daughter of a minister, I sang in church from the time I was a child. When I was a teenager, my brother and I formed a gospel quartet and we performed throughout Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. In 1979 some dear friends lost the only 2 children they had in an auto accident. At that time, I wrote a song called “We’re Safe In Jesus Arms” which became the title song for an album a year later. It was directed toward people who have lost children, and I dedicated it in memory of those children.
Raising four boys, I was unable to dedicate the time necessary to make music a career, but my heart was always there. I’ve written many songs through the years. Most of them were songs much like the ones on my album, written in hopes they can help someone who may be hurting.
As the years progressed, I could not have foreseen how the music would become what it has to me. For the first time in my life, I’m in a position where I have time to do what God put in my heart years ago. No one is more surprised than I to see what has occurred in recent months where a song I’ve written and produced actually hit the charts. I would have been thrilled with one, but I’ve had the song on three different charts so far. The doors are opening for me to introduce some of my own music to as many people as I can touch. I’m trusting God to take it where he sees fit.
