Stage Fright~

Quite an interesting topic this issue of stage freight…



I don’t know any worship leader who doesn’t have it or at least struggled with it at some point and yet, there really doesn’t seem to be a concrete 12 step program for over coming it. This topic was brought up at our worship training session and our pastor opened the floor to suggestions; I don’t think any one of us had a good concrete answer. I thought I would jot down some of my thoughts on the topic and hopefully some of you… Continue

The heart of a worship leader is: Psalm 90

So, as I mentioned in my previous post: Today is my day to be a Mary, and just sit at the feet of Jesus to learn and to meditate and pray. I am taking a large portion of my day today to listen to the main speakers from the National Worship Leader Conference. Just now I finished watching the speaker Scotty Smith. Prior to that I watched most of David Nasser’s talk except it got cut off somewhere near the end.



Anyhow, Scotty’s talk was for the heart of the worship leader. I know there… Continue

Take some time to BE THERE, Swing a bit and eat some fruit ;-)

So, in the recent weeks, I suppose it was about two weeks ago, our senior pastor gave a sermon that really reached into my heart. He was speaking about being more like Mary, because in this culture we are very much like Martha…doing doing doing. ( I am an extreme Martha who thrives on serving and doing)Well God allowed me to catch the latest Cold/flu virus that’s going around. Yes, God called me to be a Mary today. And funny coincidence (ok, definitely not a coincidence) My worship pastor put… Continue

Last night at the meeting.....God hit me over the head with an Electric guitarist :-)

We have just started doing a new thing at our church. Once a month worship discipleship meetings. Last night, the team members who were able to attend the National Worship Leaders Conference in KS this year each spoke about what they learned at the conference.



It’s so funny how God uses people to reach right into our soul. Our Electric guitarist was making facebook posts about how he had no idea what to say at the meeting. Of course I gave him a hard time and teased him a ton. So,… Continue

Falling at His Feet

I was re-reading one of my favorite books on Worship yesterday entitled “Face Down” by Matt Redman. I reached a certain page that stood out to me, though it really hadn’t on previous readings. I would like to share it with you all if I could:



~ Each time we gather together as a worshipping community, we must find way to reflect these aspects of the nature and character of God. The songs are one thing. But it goes way beyond the music. It’s our whole approach. Are we preparing our… Continue

How Worship Got Me Through It...

It was a week during the summer. My husband had gone off to Las Vegas to a convention for work and I left to go to the Arts conference at Willow Creek in Barrington IL. We had been trying to conceive our first child for over two years without much luck, mostly because I have PCOS, that is, Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome. So I was really excited to find out I had finally gotten pregnant!

I had a really great time to connect with God in worship that week at the conference. There were great… Continue

Wow!

Wow, what a neat place. My worship pastor seemed to have run accross this site and became a fan on facebook. I was curious about the name...I mean ..worship the Rock? Woah.. not nature worship right? Well little did I know that I've found a blogging site for worshippers! Whoo hoo! I've got about two years worth of blogs regarding worship on my xanga site. ( and the most recent years about motherhood) But it is really neat that there is a place where there is a community of people that are… Continue
