These past few years have truly been a painful time of wrestling with what I really believe about God, discovering who I am and who I was created to be, and overcoming the nagging temptation to quit. In the midst of the various ups and downs, both traumatic and joyous, I’ve experienced the beauty of maturing, growing, and resolving to NOT grow bitter and always choosing to love. This second album is an unashamed statement of who I am and a picture of who I’ve found God to truly be as I’ve experienced Him. I really feel as though I’ve come up ‘On The Other Side’ of this past season and can rejoice in my faith and in who I am. I’ve determined to not let death, bitterness, and disillusionment steal my joy and hope. God is real. God is love. God NEVER forsakes. He alone can define you.
