Last December, our family started a new tradition where we have worship time each evening. I wanted my kids to understand the importance of worshipping the Lord, so they take turns picking a special song that's on their hearts to sing before bed. As well-intentioned as the time seems, there's plenty of fighting over whose turn is next, accompanied by dancing that leads to bumped heads- but I know God is working through the chaos.
Every night my sweet daughter, Genevieve, requests an Anne Wilson song. I think the lyrics of "Sunday Sermon" about being seven years old in church caught her attention and heart. This week was Genevieve's sixth birthday and coincidentally was Anne Wilson's debut album launch!
Thanks to Momentum Influencers, I got to be the coolest mom and join in for Anne Wilson's debut CD live stream event where we heard some of Anne's new music. My new favorite song, "Mama," is timed perfectly for mother's day, and features the lovely Hillary Scott of Lady A - such a fun surprise for us all!
As my girls watched with stars in their eyes, I was able to type a special question into the chat for Anne with the hope she might answer- and she did!
I asked her what advice she'd give to children who'd like to grow up and perform like her and she said:
"Those growing up wanting to be artists- work super hard at what you do. Never give up. Fix your eyes on Jesus."
What a great answer to accompany a lovely CD launch- I hope my kids hold that advice close to their hearts on each & every road they travel!
