New Day

This was beautiful. Thank you for sharing your heart. I am a writer - although I am not published- and I am in awe of song writers use of lyrics. Your language in speaking is aspiring.

I struggled with my faith in a similar, yet different way after my dad died. I grew up fundamental Baptist and lost my faith and fought to have a new relationship with my Creator.

One of my favorite songs in that time period was Madly in Love with You by Sean McConnell.

May you know that though we wander...our Creator is always right with us.

Binged all episodes in two days

After seeing Griffin play a perfect show at the Bluebird Cafe, I checked out this podcast and couldn’t stop until I’d listened to all six episodes. Of course the songs are great, but the real treat is getting a glimpse into the artist and stories behind them. I’ll be waiting impatiently for more!
