My Story-My Song

I never meant to share this album outside my little world.

In 1998, I suffered from esophageal problems. The pain, I often describe as a knife in my back and a shovel handle in my chest. Most days, my voice was hoarse. Worried, I may lose the ability to sing and to share my songs, I made plans to record the album for my family.

While in the recording studio, I struggled to hold certain notes. To this day, while listening to the songs, I cringe when I recognize those notes. Their sound, sending me back to those days of misery.

When the album came out in May 1999, I shared it with family and friends, and they began to share it with their family and friends. One friend carried it with her to Iraq.

In January 2002, I awoke to the words, “This is a time of rejoicing. I have restored health and healed your wounds.” I began praising the Lord. For several weeks the pain remained, my faith tested. But, I held to His promise and kept praising the Lord. I awoke one morning, and the pain was gone. Fifteen years later, it is still gone. Praise the Lord!

I share a couple of songs now because I’m far enough away from the pain it doesn’t hurt so much when listening to them. I hope when listening to the words, you will find hope, encouragement, and strength.

It Was Love

One More Miracle

He Lives

Heaven’s Lullaby

  1. Really enjoyed your songs! Praise God He healed you. He wasn’t finished with you yet. Music has always been a huge part of my life. My mom & her 3 sisters used to sing at church with my dad playing the guitar. You bring back such sweet memories. Praise God! Keep sharing & singing,

  2. Thanks for the follow. I followed back.
    I am so sorry for your pain. I have a lot of esophageal problems and developed Barrett’s esophagus because of it. I can empathize with your pain.
