I will never forget July 4th 2001 as the day I set forth towards my own independence. I made a decision that I needed to discover who I was as a person, and who I am in Christ. It was the hardest, yet best decision I ever made as it meant leaving home and entering into a the unknown world of making independent choices. If I never "stepped out from the boat" in faith, I would have never made the journey to Brasov, Romania, nor entered into a world-wide music ministry.
I am thankful to be an American, and I am thankful to Jesus for the freedom He gives to all who believes.
