I’m sharing my prayer and song. It’s time for 2 Chronicles 7:14.
Pray for rescue and supernatural peace and protection for the 250 Syrian Christians who were captured by ISIL. Don’t allow yourself to get desensitized or overwhelmed to the point of shutting these things out. They need us to be with them. They are our family. Pray.
I posted this video on YouTube because I often get mixed up with Hannah Ford, the drummer, who is on tour with Prince. I am on a lifelong tour with the Prince of Peace and I’d love to hire her to play on one of my albums someday. Until that day I remain amused at how people mix us up and I made this little video to help clear things up for people on YouTube. It was filmed at the Soundhouse in Redding, CA, while recording my upcoming album. And no… I thankfully did not play the drums on the album! I was just messing around. :) Stay tuned!
I just found out last night that Holy Trinity Brompton Church in London has commissioned a dance team to dance to my song, “Healing is Flowing” at a healing conference there next week. I’m hoping that God blesses many through it and that He heals many, too! :) (HTB Church is where the Alpha Program began with Nicky Gumbel and where Tim Hughes is worship leader, for those of you that know about them.)
My Album #4 is on it’s way and it is getting better by the minute. I’m getting some songs mixed now and we’re excited about the progress! My production team also headed up “Bethel Tides”, “You Make Me Brave”, and “We Will Not Be Shaken”. Originally my album was going to have 10 worship songs but I had also written 3 other songs that were for people who need hope and encouragement through the hard times. So now there are 13 songs total! :) Please pray for God to bless these songs as they are being mixed and pray for God to use them powerfully and bring them to the people He wants to hear them. Also, I’m going to be raising money through a Kickstarter campaign to pay for the final album costs and to make some music videos! Pray for God’s provision and consider being a part of this exciting album that He’ll use. Thanks so much!
This is our winter in San Diego. I like walking around filling my phone up with flower pictures. We kind of have seasons. :)
I realized why my shoulder is sore. Yesterday at the the alzheimer’s home, one of the ladies wanted to dance. So for about a half an hour I sang, played guitar, and danced all around the room with her. It was our most hyper music hour yet and it was pure joy. :)
new record label! i’m the first artist on it :) seeds start little but then they grow roots, grow up, and bear fruit. then they produce more seeds and the process happens again bringing fruit to more and more people. praying for plenty of rain and sunshine. :)

I had such a fun time visiting my grandmother, two aunts, and an uncle in Virginia! I played the keyboard and sang for my grandmother every day in her living room. On Sunday, my dad was a guest preacher and I was a guest musician in her church. Special family memories! I’m so thankful! :)
I remember many years ago researching for my senior thesis in college. I chose to write on “The Effect of the Holocaust on Survivors’ Faith” and the details of what I learned shook me to the core and brought me to weeping. I prayed, “God! I wish I could hug one of these people. I just want to hug them.” I didn’t know that a couple of months later I would be walking in Budapest, Hungary through the halls of a Holocaust survivor hospital. We were bringing fruit baskets and we were told not to let our crosses show if we were wearing any. I forgot to tuck mine into my shirt and when I saw a certain man he pointed to my cross and began to speak many words in Hungarian that I didn’t understand. I called a translator over and she told me his words. “It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter what you believe. I lost all of my 9 brothers and sisters and my parents in the holocaust and I’m the only one who survived.” My heart was overwhelmed and I had no words but these- “I love you.” When the translator told him, he immediately hugged me. We held each other and cried for several minutes. I’m actually crying again now. God answered a prayer that I never thought he would. I got to hug one of these precious people. What a tragedy that he and his family lived. But what joy and love we shared that day. Only the LOVE of God can bring healing to this world. I pray that we are all used to spread His unconditional love, peace, and healing to this broken world.
Right before New Years it snowed in San Diego county at very low elevation levels. I have heard that it has been over 20 years since this has happened here! May the snowfall remind us of God’s grace that covers the old with purity and waters the ground for great growth in due time! Love, hannah
Happy 2015 everyone! I pray that it’s your best year EVER! ❤️hannah
