Catch Me Jesus
Jani Schaefer (Jani rhymes with rainy)has come full circle with the release of her album, Catch Me Jesus. Musical from an early age and a knack for harmonizing, she always took part in groups and choirs in her youth. Yet with marriage, raising a family and disillusionment with the message and music of the day she put it all away for quite some time. Drawing upon the experiences of others as well as her own, she searched the scriptures for the answers to the tough times brought on by life. Upon finding the answers or the encouragement there she always wanted to share what she had found. God began to give her lyrics and tunes she could call her own, sometimes light hearted-- sometimes soul wrenching. With a clear, crisp and easy listening vocal you will hear what those messages are. A recent trip to China with an a cappella choir gave her opportunity to share from her own music. It was received with great enthusiasm and she hopes to return someday with more of this album to share with the Chinese audiences whom she has come to love. She has been touched by the plight of the persecuted church around the world as you will hear in the epic ballad 'Safely Home' -track 7- and is pledging proceeds from the sales of Catch Me Jesus toward organizations aiding those around the world who are suffering for the name of Jesus. You will enjoy this collection as much as she enjoyed recording it. Her prayer is that the listener will be encouraged as well as challenged.
