This weekend really was life changing for me. From challenging writing exercises to co-writing sessions that taught me a lot about who I am and how I process inspiration and information from God and other people. I made friends and connections that I believe will last a lifetime and
wrote songs that I pray
will shift atmospheres.
Everything I learned and experienced was nothing I could imagine. From writing, singing, praying, receiving prayer, learning, eating, and meeting awesome people, it was the best decision I’ve made to be able to start writing and co-writing music! Thank
you for a great experience
I was able to take a whole weekend to “wake up” my inner songwriter in the safest space one could imagine. Coming out of the Songlab with 2 full songs was a kick-start to my confidence in myself and my creativity. I left
with not only the mentality of
“I think I CAN do this after
all!” But “I must do this, it
makes me come alive!”
Songwriting can be super vulnerable. But at the same time,
a song has the ability to move hearts like very few other things
can do. It's always a risk... but we believe that it's worth it!
So if you have been wanting a place to step out, grow your gift, and share
your heart-song, ask the Lord about joining us for a SongLab workshop!
