It’s not about Perfection, it’s about Expression

It’s not about Perfection, it’s about Expression….

Like most things, I may have thought I knew that, but I didn’t actually internalize it until I experienced it on a mission trip to Cuba. 
Members of our music team were working with the local musicians to prepare music for a church service.
We had everything carefully planned out in advance because we did not speak each other’s language and didn’t want to leave anything to chance. 
After playing the music we had planned and practiced, I thought we were done. 
Then the pastor walked up and asked me if I knew Amazing Grace. 
I said yes and before I knew it he was sitting at the keyboard playing. 
My brain was going bananas with excuses and protests….
I only know how to sing it in English, they won’t understand.
We’ve never practiced this, what if it sounds awful?  
I’m not even sure this is a good key for my voice……
And then…..I let go and started singing. 
What resulted is one of the most amazing musical experiences of my life. 
It’s not about perfection, it’s about expression.
Want to hear for yourself? Check out the video below…. at the 1:30 mark, we REALLY start having church! 🙌🏻

That’s why I created Singalong Switch, to encourage EVERYONE (yes, YOU) to embrace and use our voices to move from chaos to calm through the power of song.

Love Series, Ep. 13: No Chance at All, Be thou my Vision

If you are thinking (like me) that all of these wonderful concepts seem like great ideas in theory, but impossible in practice, this scripture is for all of us!

“We have no chance at all If we think we can pull it off ourselves, but every chance in the world if we trust God to do it.” ~ Matthew 19:26

Love Series, Ep. 12: An Undivided Heart, Love Divine

There is a tendency to think that God is on one side or another…

I don’t believe God is on a side.

I believe God wants us to see that we are all one.

We are all in this together.

And the sooner we can see that and work together toward a solution,

the better off we will be.

Love Series, Ep. 11: Use Your Freedom, Love Lifted Me

What if we’re all on the same side?

We all want to get our own way.

It’s a natural tendency, just hang out with a toddler!

The problem starts when we de-personalize those we perceive as standing in the way. 

Turning it into an “Us versus Them” situation. 

But what if we’re all on the same side?

Love Series, Ep. 10: Cultivate a Life in Common, Walk through the Valley in Peace

Today’s scripture sounds like a mom yelling at her kids:

“Please stop fighting and look at what you have in common!”

I love the relatability of that so much.


Side Note: If you haven’t already, check out The Message translation of the Bible, read a few passages and see how it speaks to you. It helps scripture to come alive for me in a new way (and I need all the help I can get!)

Love Series, Ep. 8: Bring out the Best, We’re All in this Together

It really doesn’t matter what the other person has said or done,

it is always our choice how to respond,

and we can respond in love.

Love Series, Ep. 7: Become at Home, Softly and Tenderly

“He Home!” is a new phrase our toddler says, and it makes me so happy because

when you are home, that means you belong.

Today’s scripture says that ‘love has the run of the house’ and that has become my prayer,

“Lord, let my home be filled with love.”
