About Me
"About Me" is a misnomer. It's not about me. It is about God and God's work through me to lead and inspire others because it is God who has blessed me.
"If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!"
(2 Corinthians 5:17)

Inspiration
My inspiration is from God, and my music is from my heart. Music is my
"occupassion."

Favorite Scripture
“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank him for his answers. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus.” -- Philippians 4:6-7 (The Living Bible)

Mission Scripture

"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms." -- 1 Peter 4:10 (NIV)
