My Story

God had a better plan…

God works in mysterious ways. After college, I decided to pursue a singing/song-writing career in L.A., played in a few bands, did studio work when I could get it, and tried with all of my might to “make it’ in the Music business. Making music was the most important thing in my life at that time, and I just wasn’t getting anywhere. After a few years, I felt really discouraged. I met the love of my life, my husband Jack, and  continued singing and playing a little until my son was almost four. In 1995, I just threw in the towel. I didn’t sing, play the piano, or write. I buried my talent, really didn’t talk about my career, but felt bitter and unhappy about my lack of success. I contented myself with being a good mom for my son, whom I love to pieces, doing Church work and helping my husband. (Remember the parable in the Bible about what happens to a servant who buries his “talent?”)

In 2000, I started to have a severe pain throughout my body, and I was very afraid. I hid this condition from the world, but my husband was aware of it. I have always loved God, and have had wonderful healing through prayer, but this problem grew worse and worse over a three year period, until one night I woke up in such terrible pain, that didn’t think I could go on any more. I got out of bed and made my way downstairs, sat at my desk crying uncontrollably and reaching out to God with every fiber of my being for help. As I sat there, I kept hearing in my head, “you are loved, you are loved” over and over until I picked up a pen and started writing down what I was hearing. I don’t know how long I was there, but by the time I had stopped crying and writing, the pain was gone, and I had written the title song of my first CD, You Are Loved.

Within a few months of that experience, in 2003, I was completely healed of that condition and was “reborn” musically, this time writing only for God. Since that time, I have a passion for writing, singing and playing that I have never known before. I just love the music and the message, but know that I am only the messenger. No ego involved. I just write down what God gives me. I am so grateful to be able to share this music with you. My hope is that you will feel the inspiration that has brought me to my “new birth”. I know first-hand that there is nothing that God can’t do.

God bless and keep you all. Lots of love…Cherie.
