ABOUT THE ARTIST
Lara's love for music was evident at an early age. Beginning in elementary school, she was involved in vocal competitions, concerts and ministries. While attending Cedarville University, she was part of a traveling singing team. Cedarville is also where she met her husband, Chris Gifford. Today, they are the proud parents of 3 children: 2 boys, Peyton and Palmer and a daughter, Parke. Parke hailed originally from the Guangdong province in China, and joined their family when she was almost a year old. Adoption is close to Chris and Lara's hearts as Chris is also adopted. As a couple, they have stayed involved in music and Church ministry. Recently, they have begun to do out-reach in their local community through music and testimony. Lara has been involved in several CD projects by various artists with Ascend Productions and is excited to have completed her first solo project, "The Wonder of God".
FROM THE ARTIST
My first calling is wife and mother and that is where I receive the most blessing and joy! I also love to sing and am grateful that God gave us the wonderful gift of music. I believe it can be a powerful tool in changing lives and pointing us to a greater intimacy with our Creator. I have always felt most comfortable sharing my heart through music. I am grateful for and humbled by every opportunity He provides. It has been so fun working on this project and I hope that those who hear the message of the songs will be drawn to the one who makes it all possible!
