This album is dedicated to God's healing power: Romans 8:28. He works all things out for our good and His glory if we love Him and are called according to His purpose. In 1997, my heart was crushed from the unexpected death of my 22 year old sister, Sherri. I felt I could no longer play the piano: because "How can I play from a heart that is broken?" Through this tragic loss, the Lord began to teach me how we must be "broken" in order to be "spilled-out" and used of God. It is only because of the Lord, and His grace and healing power "to save a crushed spirit" that I am able to minister to other hearts today. (Psalm 34:18.)
"Every good and perfect gift comes from the Father above." James 1:17
"Without Him I can do nothing." John 15:5
Surrender is a collection of songs that each have a special "Story Behind the Song." From lullabies in the Precious Memories Medley arranged for my children on Mother's Day, to the tribute to my sister in Finally Home----they all have a special place in my heart, and I hope they will for you too! Listen carefully, and you'll hear a few tracks that include sound effects, such as wind, rain, thunder, streams, and even dolphins.
Using my Korg Triton Studio 88 keyboard, each track is recorded individually and mixed. Surrender was designed by Disc Makers, and mastered by The SoundLab at Disc Makers.
