Hope Shines

Christmas is upon us, friends. I can’t believe I’m saying that!

Some of you know that I’m working on a new EP; I announced it a few months ago, but haven’t posted much since. WELL, that is because I’ve been working on the music for Hope Shines, this year’s Christmas production at The Woods Church!

The Woods Church is my home church; I grew up here, my first job was working here, and I’ve been volunteering on the worship team here since I was a wee 8th grader. Needless to say, it has a very special place in my heart. And of course I was THRILLED when they asked me to arrange the music for this! I’ve spent the past month at my computer recording & putting songs together, writing charts for the band to follow, and creating click tracks for the band to play along to when we play it all live. It’s been an absolute blast.

These kinds of projects always remind me how much I truly adore making and producing music. We all tend to lose sight of our callings once in awhile, don’t we?

If you’re around the Metro Detroit area, come see us! And if you’re not around here, The Woods Church will be livestreaming all of the services, so you really don’t have an excuse :)
