Welcome!

Hello, everyone!  Welcome to my new web site.  If you had told me years ago that instead of a career in classical music, God would call me into ministry, I would have had a hard time believing it.  But life is full of surprises, isn’t it?  Through these blog entries, I’ll be sharing honest reflections on the challenges, triumphs and surprises I’m experiencing as I continue to follow my calling to sing, even though my destination has changed.

On many occasions when I’ve presented ministry programs, people have been most interested in what following the dream has taught me and how it has changed who I am and what my future holds.

Here I will openly and honestly share answers to some of those questions, and the surprising realization that the depth of that conversation has eclipsed even my love of opera. Oh, don”t get me wrong. I will never stop singing and enjoying my beloved arias and the passionate stories from which they came. However, the deeper journey of what I”ve learned beyond the arias, about myself and my relationship with God, intrigues me even more.

The film, “Laundry and Tosca,” which chronicled my pursuit of a career in music and the experiences surrounding the film have changed my life in many ways I never could have imagined. Though my aspirations have led me to places I did not expect, I urge you, if you have a dream, to take risks and follow that dream with all your effort and courage. You may find that your life will become more deeply enriched than you could ever have expected and that your relationship with God will grow deeper and more intimate as a result.
