A big part of Christian life is worship. While there are many different ways that we worship our Lord, music can create such an emotional way of connecting with God. When we go through different seasons, that can be even more important to lean on God through worship. This can grow your faith in a big way and in this episode, we are joined by award-winning recording artist, Ginny Owens to dive into this topic. Ginny shares her story of how God has shown up in her life through music and how God helped bring her through a season of burnout in her career.
Ginny has a new album and an accompanying book called Singing In The Dark. If you want to grow in how you worship, this is for you! You can get a copy of the book here.
