No one can bring out their contagious belly laughs like you can. We adore you, @jacobsooter. Happy Father's Day.
Sure do love these friends. (And that feels like a MASSIVE understatement.) Thankful for the chance to serve together in Camarillo this weekend!
What a day writing with @jonasmyrin, one of the kindest, most welcoming, purest hearts I've come across. Ever. The presence of God was so thick in his home that I basically cried in my coffee the first hour, and while we were writing, a butterfly flew in the room and a hummingbird hovered by the window. Every part of today was a kiss from heaven. Oh, and the song is 🔥 too. ☺
It was such an honor to record #NeedingYouNow with my dear friend @wearemessengersmusic. I hope this song meets you right where you are ❤️ Watch the full video here: http://smarturl.it/NeedingYouNow
Jacob and I were so honored to serve alongside the @freechapeloc team this weekend. I thought the roof might catch fire last night when a room full of people showed up with their loud worship and Pastor @jentezen preached the house down. Love you, Free Chapel OC! Thanks so much for having us!
To all my Southern California friends...this is happening next weekend!! Come join us! 💃🏻
Honored to be a part of the @worshipcircle team. Loved my conversation with @toddfields1 and invite you to listen in! Link in profile.
This sweet little ballerina has my heart. ❤
Today was beautiful. New friends that immediately felt like family and 2 new songs that deeply stir my heart to worship. It's days like this I shake my head and whisper thanks again and again. ❤
Loved celebrating our friends last night with so many people we love in one place! Congrats, Steph and Peyton!! ❤
Two kids and a dream. May 23, 2008. Little did we know what a decade would hold...heck, we didn't know much at all...except that we loved each other and were better together. The last 10 years have been the most challenging, transforming, refining years of my life. So much beauty, so much revelation, plenty of HARD. Moments of bliss and moments of, I'm not sure we're gonna make it. We are not the same people now as the ones you see in these pictures. We have been gutted by grace and rebuilt by mercy. We have witnessed first-hand the bedrock faithfulness and steady promises of a delighted Father at every turn. And I'm just really grateful tonight...sitting on our hotel balcony listening to enthusiastic vacationers singing karaoke to Don't Stop Believing. I love you, @jacobsooter. I choose you...now and always.
Celebrating a decade married to this handsome man. ❤

Generally speaking, 4 am wake up calls to board 6 am flights is against everything I believe in, but to fly with this guy to Aruba for our 10 year anniversary, I'll make an exception.
This was about an hour before I led worship. Changed clothes, still smell like goat. So worth it. 😳🐐#goatyoga #KLTY #ladiesfirst
Yesterday was so sweet and so memorable for me. I've had the chance to serve at many @worship.leader events over the years, but this one was quite possibly my favorite. We did a stripped down set...Jacob on the Steinway, me with a mic and a couple floor wedges...and introduced 2 new songs in the mix of others I've been singing for years. Being in a room full of people who love the presence of God and come ready to worship is next level, and we encountered God in such a beautiful, tangible way yesterday. I'm not going to soon forget the worship leaders who sang their hearts out with me and the breathtaking moments we had together before the Throne. 📷: @loganjp12
Quick show in Ohio last night. Made it back this morning in time for breakfast at Pinewood Social and fun at Nashville Farmer's Market with my people. These days with them give me so much LIFE. Can't wait for church @thebelongingco tonight!
Loved loved LOVED jumping on this podcast with my new friend, @aprilsmckinney. Search for 20,000 Words and listen in on our honest conversation!
Last night was INSANE. Loved getting to worship with my @thebelongingco family and @gwyoungadults! 🙌🏼🔥
Surprise, kids...we're going to Dollywood!! 💃🏻😁
This woman embodies sweetness and grace. What a joy to serve with @karenkingsbury this weekend!
Basically I want to be like her when I grow up. Lisa Harper, you are FIERCE in the way you run after Jesus, love His Bride, and teach the Word like there ain't no tomorrow. So glad we're friends.
After school treats. 🍨
I know I'm a couple days late but EEEEEEEEP, IT'S HERE!!! I love this woman and what she carries, how she walks in such authority to speak liberating truth over hearts searching for identity. Alex preached a message this week based on her new book (which is obviously a message she's wrestled and walked out for years), and I sat in my chair weeping the ENTIRE TIME. Cannot WAIT to dive into this book by my friend and pastor, @alexseeley. ❤
Seriously, people. I am not exaggerating when I say this is one of the most important books I have EVER read. Pretty sure I need to read it every day for the rest of life. In a culture that so highly elevates and tirelessly chases celebrity, may we as Jesus followers not forget that He lived 90% of his earthly life in obscurity. THIRTY YEARS growing in favor, wisdom and intimacy with the Father, and no one knowing He was the Messiah. I never want to despise hidden years. Revelation comes from rest, wisdom from winter and waiting and wrestling with God. THIS BOOK CHANGED MY LIFE GO READ IT!! (Sorry for shouting. Love y'all. 😉❤)
We’re looking for churches to record their vocals to be mixed into a new project from @wordworshipmusic called #TheChurchWillSing - Hear the songs and sign up at TheChurchWillSing.com // I’m honored to be a part of one of the songs on this project called “One Pursuit” 🧡
Bob Goff is just the freaking best.
WHAT IS HAPPENING?! If you need me I'll be crying in a corner somewhere because my babies aren't babies anymore. 💔😭 📷:@hardenmyfrench
Our family in Chicago released a new album today! @jacobsooter and I were honored to serve alongside this team for over 10 years, and now we are cheering them on from Nashville. Their hearts are to see people encounter the presence of God and these songs are evidence of that. I was honored to write on After Your Heart and Strength of My Life, and my girls @tarawhatshername and @lsweens carry them so so beautifully. (The appropriate phrase would actually be CRUSHED IT.) Bright Faith Bold Future. So so good. 🔥🙌🏼❤
As of Sunday, we have officially added a sixth member to our family. On Easter afternoon, Jacob and his dad were driving to go play tennis when Jacob spotted a tiny creature on the side of the road, digging through a bag of trash. I don't know who could throw away such a sweet pup, but we were just glad Jacob found her when he did. We have been talking about getting a dog for months. Turns out Jesus had just the one for us with a redemption story all her own. Since she was rescued on Easter, we named her Lily. And we are in love. ☺❤🐶
