It is well with my soulHello, friends! I can't believe it's been three months since my last post! In that time so very much has happened...
As some of you may know, I lost my grandpa last month. He was such a special and important person to me, and I know I will never regret the time spent with him. I encourage you to spend time with your grandparents while they are still living-you will never regret it!
My grandpa gave me my start in music. I attribute all my guitar talent to him, who was so instrumental in getting me started on it, including giving me my first guitar! He encouraged me in my dream of singing, as well, and was one of my biggest fans when I was about ten years old and trying to find my way in the world of music. He made AWESOME homemade ice cream, and he grilled a mean hamburger on many a summer evening! ;) These are just a few of the special memories I have of him, and they are memories I will always treasure. ♥
My mom wrote a very beautiful tribute to him here. Many of her thoughts expressed in this post are similar to mine..."Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning."
Jesus has been with us in an amazing way, and given us peace, in spite of the sorrow. Love in spite of the pain.
Although I miss him so much, I can't wait to see him in heaven, and I am so thankful that he will never be in pain again, and is happy with Jesus.
A couple weeks after the funeral, I was blessed to be able to attend Winter Jam, a true soul-refresher! If ever you get the opportunity to go, GO! Definitely very timely after the recent trials I have been facing! I went with some sweet friends-these girls are so special to me!
One of my best friends, Tymbur!
Love these girls so much!

God is so good! I was so blessed to be able to meet some of the artists who have been a huge encouragement over the last several years.
