In Jesus I found victory, joy, love, and peace. You name it and I'll claim it in Jesus! It is my sincere prayer that the songs herein will lead you to drink deeply from the well that never runs dry. It is my hope that this project will encourage you to know Christ and the power of His ressurection. Lastly, it is my earnest desire that these songs will aid you in your life journey so that you may come to discover that everything you'll ever need is in Jesus!
