Renew My Heart Today

Songwriting is deeply personal. Though most of the songs I write are meant to encourage others, they are written out of my own experience and often come around to lift my spirits time and time again. The song Hold Me, from my new album Encore, has been a powerful prayer for me recently. I thought I’d share it with you.
Hold Me
(Verse 1)
Early in the morning
I turn my thoughts to You
Empower me to follow in Your ways
You know all the hard things
I’m facing to get through
Revive my soul to trust in You today
Caring for the world that You love
Sharing with them healing from above
Hold me, Hold me
Create in me a clean heart O God
Renew my heart today
Give it a listen on YouTube or use your favorite music app (like Spotify). You can purchase a digital copy of my Encore album at

Thank you for your continued prayers and support! My you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. There’s so much to be thankful for!
