I’m getting pretty excited; the launch date for River of Grace is a mere 7 weeks away! (It’s available now for pre-order on Amazon at a reduced price.) But there’s something else in the works too.
- Imagine that you are reading River of Grace and you find it really speaks to you.
- Now imagine that book accompanied by a musical soundtrack.
- A song for each chapter that will play in your head as you think about what you read.
- A way to carry that book with you all throughout the day.
I dreamed a dream …
I have been a professional singer for many years; four years ago I thought I had lost my voice forever. Yet somehow, miraculously, my voice did return. Ever since I have dreamt of having a collection of songs recorded to go along with River of Grace. These were the songs that came to mind as I wrote the book. Summarizing the stories and lessons, these songs are a great way to ponder and pray on the message of River of Grace, a message of the creative power of life and how each day can become an adventure even in the worst of circumstances.
What’s on the CD?
The CD will contain my take on two classics, the Quaker hymn “How Can I Keep from Singing” and a favorite of the Unitarian faith, “Spirit of Life.” I am re-imagining three of my own songs (one of which is the tribute to Louisa and Lizzie), and, I have two new songs I’ve written. Each song relates directly to a chapter in the book. Learning the song and listening to it in your head (or even singing it) is a wonderful way to think about what you have read.
How you can help
Recording a CD involves a lot of work and expense. While you can’t help with the work, you can help through your contribution to my Indiegogo campaign.
I am looking to raise $1600 in 30 days to cover the cost of producing this CD. No contribution is too small – $1, $5, whatever you feel moved to give. I’ve included some cool rewards for those of you who wish to contribute more—you can see it all here on my Indiegogo campaign page.
If you can’t contribute, you can still help by spreading the word to everyone you know—there are easy ways to share on my campaign page.
The campaign is introduced by a short video where I explain the project and provide samples of songs on the CD. I will be updating my progress on the CD through the 30-day period with additional videos and sound bites.
Excited? I am! Come on over to my Indiegogo campaign and let’s get started!
