Biography

I am a 26 year old singer songwriter from Conway, AR. I sing and I play the piano. It's a fun habit to have! I love music that "feels" the way that I do. A few of my influences are Natalie Grant, Nichole Nordeman, KT Tunstall, Colbie Callait. I really enjoy creating music and writing lyrics that might open the minds of those who listen...even create a sense of urgency or excitement about whatever I am writing about. I've been fortunate enough to be surrounded by music all of my life. I've learned, performed and taught it since I could remember. The beauty of it all is that with God in the picture everything makes sense. He created me to be me and the part of me that lives the most is the part that is creative. I started writing children's books when I was young, thirsty with the thought of another idea, thought or story of somewhere far away. Then the music took over. I learned, I taught, I performed and then one day the two intertwind.

Lyrics

A Little Time

Written By: Ellen Westerman

In Your presence there is calm,
a hiding place,
In Your presence peace abideth long.
Because Your presence is a place,
where I can be myself.
And in Your eyes, my child-like faith is strong.

I've got to be in Your presence,
speechless and amazed,
Lord in Your presence is where I want to stay.
With peace, assurance, I know I will make it through,
Because I've spent a little time with You.

My eyes have yet to look upon,
Your smiling face,
Though I know that You're there,
to guide me all the way,
It seems my life is such a maze,
of unexpected pace
And the only way to make it through,
Is by spending time with You.

I've gotta be in Your presence,
speechless and amazed,
Lord in Your presence is where I want to stay.
With peace, assurance, I know I will make it through,
Because I've spent a little time with You.

And when all I do seems wrong,
I become in You so strong,
You lead me to a place that is quiet
You whisper telling me, "Child be silent...."

I've gotta be in Your presence,
speechless and amazed,
Lord in Your presence is where I want to stay.
With peace, assurance, I know I will make it through,
Because I've spent a little time with You.
