I made a map of my life on my 40th birthday, and remembered in broad strokes the first 20 years of my life, and then the second. Drawn out in a sort of graph, I was amazed that there was rarely just one monolithic line, plummeting and rising, but that in the darker hours, there was almost always a counter-rise – this hard thing was happening, but at the same time, this other (sometimes completely unrelated) wonderful thing was happening. Coming-of-age vulnerability alongside finding genuine, life-giving mentors (and authors), young adult angst alongside finding a voice, marriage joy alongside marriage pain, birth alongside depression, sin and self alongside truly breathtaking revelations of grace, tearing relational missteps alongside burgeoning life-long friendships. You know what I’m talking about because when I go out and sing, you come and tell me about your plummeting and rising, and these songs that mark each turn in the line. Here we have done our best to compile a group of songs to follow that line and 15 years of making music! Thank you for listening – we are profoundly grateful for you!

  • We haven't been using the bus much lately. Troy has a new job, and I am flying more. There was a time when this was more home than my house.  I'm so grateful for this big machine that served us so well and carried my family hither and yon! It's good to be back on board for a couple of days.
