Face to Face
I could tell you all about where I was born and raised, and the rest of my life story, but I'd much rather just share the meaningful parts with you. I will tell you I've sung at Canterbury Cathedral in England and Notre Dame Cathedral in France. I also met Pope John Paul II at the Vatican in Rome. I live in southern Illinois with one very supportive husband who believes in me and two children who, although they don't always operate under the same mission statement as the rest of the household, are my very heartbeats. Singing is my security, my niche. It's helped me develop my sense of self and has always been incredibly therapeutic. For many years, it was a challenge for me to sing unless I took the kids with me... to practices and the actual events. I remember attending lots of late-night choir rehearsals holding my two sleeping young children on my shoulders and singing away. I thank God for the patience He gave to the other members of the choir. Fortunately, that period of my life is over, and I'm making up for lost time. Now I sing as much as I can and love every minute of it. My children still come with me sometimes, but now it's by choice, and I don't put them to sleep! I feel truly blessed to have been given this voice and the opportunities to share it. Enjoy!
