  • Blue cake. Serious celebration for my favorite little boy on this planet. ❤ His imagination. Kindness. Courage. Subtlety. Lightness. And LOVE...perpetual gifts. I remember eating cake on this day 8 years ago. How fast it goes. Like every grain of sand...

  • Art imitates life. Portugal. #ARochaForum
  • I am spending a fruitful week near Lisbon, Portugal for the @arochaint forum. I am learning so much from the A Rocha family about creation care, celebration and lament--oh, and singability, too!  It's been a joy to sing together.  With 90 folks from 20 countries, we are finding out which songs we share and learning new ones. #arochaint
  • My new Alclair custom headphones arrived 🎶 just in time for my trip to Portugal. My solo international travel adventures just got more musical.

  • Self-care does not fix our problems of identity & insecurity but God's Spirit often will expose and heal our brokenness within this practice. Silence and solitude are space-makers, making room for the Spirit to do his healing work in our hearts. "Therefore, my out your own salvation with fear and trembling,
for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure." Philippians 2:12-13
  • I have a personal pre-show hat stylist. Custom ribbons and pink feathers. Join us for a songwriter round tonight at The Well in Brentwood, TN 7:30 pm The Local Show
