hroughout the second half of 2009, we worked to bring together the different entities that would enable us to record this album. From the CD manufacturer to travel arrangements to instrument dealers, one-by-one, venders began to partner with us in the aim of this project. All the while, Joseph, Jay and I continued to write songs for this album. After a couple setbacks, we finally made it up to Eaglemont Studio in Winthrop, WA with producer Brent Milligan and engineer Joe Causey at the beginning of 2010. It was a week of recording and “putting the hand to the plow” in an effort to see it all come to fruition. Because the album recording was delayed, it just so happened that I was 5 months pregnant during the tracking of the album. My voice was still surprisingly strong for having a child inhibiting my airflow :-) . I must say, it was really cool (and a Divine moment) to know that the very first week our son could hear, we were tracking a worship album for and about rescuing those who can't rescue themselves.
This album is a collection of songs we do every week in our local church (The Father’s House) as well as songs written specifically for this project – all with the aim of being tools that will draw you closer to God. I am who I am today because of songwriters and worship leaders who let their passion for God leak all over worship albums which were saturated in the presence of God. First and foremost, I hope this album is that for you.
But an additional, very important, aspect of this album is that it is music that does something.
All proceeds from the sale of this album will be donated to organizations aimed to end various forms of injustices in the world today.
t was brought to my attention how real and prevalent the issue of human/sex trafficking is today - not only around the globe, but right here in America. This is injustice. As I began to study in the Word, my spirit was awakened and I had to do something about it.
Through prayer and diligence, God has enabled us to build relationship with several organizations, both local and international, who are all about being the hands and feet of Jesus to those who are the victims of injustices such as:
- Human trafficking
- Sex trafficking
- Slavery (Adult & Child)
- ...and more
God is a God of justice. His heart breaks for the poor, needy, widow, orphan, enslaved, aborted, and victims of every sort of injustice. We cannot truly worship without touching His heart, and when we do, our hearts become more like His. So, true worship (I believe) is worship that starts with a pursuit of God and ends with our hearts being permeated with the heart of God.
