Album Notes
My album, "(A Different) State Of Mind" is my most personal yet. Personal, not only from my life, but from others who have shared with me. I wrote the title track from a poem I penned 15 years ago while in the midst of major depression. Though healed by the grace of God, I am still haunted by the scars of that painful time. My mind continues to be a daily battlefield and I ask God continually to take me to a different state (renewal) of my mind. Romans 12:2

I wrote the song "Second Chance" from a poem my Mom wrote after my Dad passed away in 2001. After nearly 40 years of marriage Mom found herself in unfamiliar surroundings - a second chance for love after the death of a spouse. The story unfolds as the chorus begins with "sometimes we go on with our lives thinking things will never change, then our life gets turned upside down and will never be the same....."!

The song "Don't Give Up" came to me after reading an email from a friend, when his 14 year old son's best friend had taken his own life! My heart sank and was broken becasue I remember thinking those same thoughts! This song was also inspired by yet another 14 year old who remembers being taken from his parents at the tender age of 4! "Don't give up, don't give up on your life, fight the Good fight, 'cause the pain and confusion can be turned into compassion....when we turn to Jesus, He will heal a heart that's beating"!

The rest of the songs on the CD round out the flavor from the up-tempo morsels "Praise You" & "I'm Looking Up", to the sultry sound of "A Line In The Sand", and the contemplative treat "Love's Calling Your Name". Listen for a musical full-course meal.
