I would like to thank my family and friends who have supported me in my passion of wholesome music, and hope this collection of songs will evoke spiritual awakenings within your soul, create a greater desire to worship in truth and spirit the God who gave us life, and inspire you to trust, serve, and love God with all your heart, might, mind and strength. Most of all, I thank the Lord for granting me the gift of harmony in my life, for instilling in me the love of a righteous song of the heart, and for teaching me all I need to know about life through the principles taught in music. Surely, we can all do great things, and while our lives cannot be entirely constructed of major chords, as there will surely be minor difficulties, trials and snares, we can still have a song in our heart and move forward with God as the Master Orchestrator and Conductor of our lives.
