Take a peek into my songwriting/recording process. This is my version of “how to write a song” Ah. There’s not really a specific process, it just kind of happens. It can happen in so many different ways. I hope this inspires you to write a tune! Would love to hear what you all have written! This was a little scary…but very rewarding. Please let me know if you would like more videos like these. I enjoyed putting this together.

This is a song I wrote back in 2012 that is one of my favorites I’ve written. It talks about my need for God to move me and my desires out of the way so I can be used by Him. Hope you enjoy it!
