Art has the power to render sorrow beautiful, make loneliness a shared experience and transform despair into hope.Brene Brown
The process of putting emotion to song bypasses our tendency to analyze and shut down our feelings before we express them.
Singing gives us freedom to acknowledge what we think and feel, releasing us from the shame of *Should*.
Night of Songs was born out of a place of yearning. My heart needed something my mind couldn’t grab hold of, so I sat on my back porch in the sunshine with my guitar and a cup of coffee by my side, and I sang… for years. I sang my pain, I sang my longing, I sang my joy and hope and need. And out of that place of unhindered, unscripted song I discovered truth about how I really saw God, the world, myself, and everything in between. And in the process I found God, I found out who I am, and I found healing.
We meet once a month to sing our hearts out in spontaneous song, spoken word, story telling, poetry, or whatever expression brings your heart to life. Bring your journal and your voice and we will explore and discover together.
My first love is music – it always will be. There is something about the release that happens when you allow your voice to leave your body that is unlike anything else I’ve discovered. Let it Grow Stronger is one of my favorite all time songs I’ve written (and it happens to be my husband’s favorite, too) I wrote it to sing at a dear friend’s wedding – and I wrote it for my love – It is also about the deep intimate connection we can have with God. There is always more to know about the One you love.
