January 11th 2003: Since I last wrote in my journal page I have lived a lifetime it seems. I have traveled thousands of miles and met about as many new folks. I love this part about singing Christian music. I get to meet some of the most incredible people in the world. I always come home thinking of them as new family. In the south, you can't have too many relatives.

The new year has begun and that means we are all supposed to be thinking of new beginnings, new challenges, even new directions. I have been thinking of all the new things planned for me this year personally and as an artist.

As far as new beginnings, I have recently become engaged to a wonderful guy. This is a decision that came with much prayer and soul searching. Most of all, love and faith. I truly believe that God has plans for us together.

New challenges come when you are asked to step out of your comfort zone. More and more I am being asked to speak and lead worship as well as sing. I really enjoy it. I am praying in my heart the whole time to do the best job I can. You see, I am so aware that all that is good in me comes from God and without His help, I would be a bit out of my comfort zone. So far, so good.

And as far as new directions, I have a new music project, CD and tape, about to be released hopefully to friendly ears. I have new songs that I have written that I pray you like. I have new pictures on the CD and tape. That's enough to make any girl a bit nervous. But most of all, I pray those who hear the music realize that I just want to praise and honor our Lord, Jesus. Music projects take so much time and effort to put together with the help of wonderfully talented musicians, singers, engineers and producers. I realize that without the blessings of the Father, it's just a bunch of songs.

I guess after all this thinking of the new things to come in this new year, the thought that keeps coming to my mind is, "just please the Father" or at least give it your best shot and He'll take care of everything else.
