What to Expect
I pray that everyone can experience God through my singing. I sing for Him and Him alone. I want to reach others for Christ. He gave me my gift and I want to use it for Him.
A love for music has always been in my blood. Since I was 5 years old, I have been singing, whether it was in my bedroom “belting” out Sandy Patti’s songs or singing in my church choir. Music has always been a part of my life.
As a young child, I felt the Lord tugging on my heart telling me that I was created to glorify His name through song. Being that I was so young, I didn’t believe yet that there was a plan in the making. My love for singing became stronger due to my children’s choir director I had. She was the first person to encourage me to continue singing and begin vocal training. Even at a young age, she recognized that I had a God-given gift. It was because of her that I began to believe singing could be my ministry.
Throughout high school, I was part of the school choir as well as a specialty choir, “Swing Choir.” I also participated in the school talent show, “Hello Texas.” Music competitions also took up a lot of time during high school. Through those competitions, I learned how to control my nerves. It forced me to reconcile my fears of singing solos in front of strangers. I took voice lessons throughout my high school years which prepared me even more for what was to come.
In 2000, I participated in the Austrian Music Festival with my ensemble, “Close to Hymn.” That was an experience I will never forget. I was able to sing at the top of a mountain and feel God’s presence. I felt like I could just touch Him. This experience made the tug on my heart even stronger, but I was still insecure about my gift and thought I was ridiculous to think that He could use me to His glory. The Lord continued to knock, but I ignored Him.
Over the years, I have participated in community musicals, sung at many weddings, and sung many solos at different churches. Every time I sing for my church, I am told that they can see the anointing on me. I sing for Jesus Christ and Him alone. I have been told that my singing has changed lives, and that people who have turned their back on the Lord have been brought to tears. That is what my ministry is about…leading people to Jesus Christ. If He can use me to lead others to Christ, what more could I ask for?
Although I had all of these wonderful experiences to draw from, I still doubted and was afraid to take that “leap of faith.” I didn’t believe what the Lord was trying to tell me…I still could not believe.
The Lord’s knocking has become ever louder and stronger every day. I can no longer ignore Him or what He has planned for me. I have been training with a new vocal coach for the last couple of years, and he has helped me so much. My range has grown tremendously due to this new training. My confidence has grown due to my training. I no longer question if, but when. I cannot squander this gift, and I believe I was born to minister through song. God has been opening many doors to me, and I will keep walking through them until He shuts them.
