Dedications

I would like to dedicate this soundtrack to my "best friend" who at the time, was my solid rock. He helped me realize I was heading down the wrong path. Without him, I honestly doubt I would be breathing today. I would also like to dedicate this to my boyfriend of one year now, with hopefully many more to come. he makes me laugh when I don't even want to smile. I cannot wait to begin our life together. Most importantly, I dedicate this soundtrack to my amazing mother. She is my shoulder to cry on, my safe place when I need to hide. I can always count on her to love me and support me with whatever decisions I make in life. I'm so thankful for her pursuing me in my walk with Christ, and time after time showing me that with God, anything is possible.

Great Plans

Cloverton // 4:39
Great Plans

I've always been a part of ministries at my church, but after going to Guatemala I feel called to be a part of something so much bigger than my home. My heart hurts for those who live in fear or pain. I want to experience new places and meet new people, but give glory to God while I do it. I want to share His word with those who may never have the chance to hear it. I want to be His feet and His hands. I want to commit my life to serving those that the rest of the world wants to forget. I believe this is my calling, I am terrified but so anxious to see what He has in store for me, and how He wants to use me.

Oceans

Hillsong United // 5:50
Hillsong United - "Oceans" (Live at RELEVANT)
This song makes my heart ache. It reminds me of His power. I know I never have to live in fear. When I feel broken and sad He gives me peace. No matter how many times I get distracted and lost in the world, He loves me unconditionally.

Cat Lady

Cat Lady - CHAD
My boyfriend wrote and recorded this about my obsession with cats. He picks on me all the time about how I will be an old cat lady... He's probably right though.

You'll Be In My Heart

Phil Collins // 4:18
Tarzan Soundtrack - You'll be in my heart by Phil Collins
Tarzan was one of my favorite movies when I was a kid. Well, still is. It reminds me of how crazily in love I am with my little Guatemalan babies, despite our many differences and distance.

Give Me Your Eyes

Brandon Heath // 4:02
Brandon Heath - Give Me Your Eyes
I wish I could see every thing that he does, the true needs of those people. They need housing and medication and money. But it's so much more than that. They need love, unconditional love. They need to see Jesus. And who else will show them if I don't? It's so easy to forget that. I need God to use me, to show them that He is there in their broken homes and He loves them.

Top Of The World

Imagine Dragons // 4:01
Imagine Dragons - On Top Of The World (Official Music Video)
Heading to Guatemala the first time, this song played twice while we were in the airport waiting to board. And then driving through Guatemala I had a "deer in the headlights" look on my face the entire four hours. I was so tired and desperately wanted sleep, but everything was so new. The people, the culture, the colors. It was all so beautiful and surreal. It was so hard to realize that I was actually even there, but so easy to fall in love with it. This is my Guatemalan song, because I was there, and it was amazing. I feel invincible. Every time I hear this song, I see big purple grapes hanging on trees by the street and children sleeping in big brightly colored hammocks. I feel the warm sun on my face and can smell the fresh pineapple. I miss it more than anything.

White Flag

Chris Tomlin // 5:03
White Flag: Passion 2012 - Atlanta, GA
In January, I went with my youth group to Atlanta for a weekend of worship. I met some amazing people, who I now call friends and fell completely in love the power of God all over again. The auditorium went dark, and they began to sing this song. By the first few verses, every single hand was in the air and we all sung-screamed the words in unison. It was so incredible. God was there, in that auditorium with us. We could hear him in our voices that shouted his name. The power in that room was overwhelming. It sent chills down my spine. I worship an amazing God.

In That Home

Newsboys // 4:41
Newsboys - That Home (A Tribute To Moms)(Lyric Video)
Over the past six years, my family has been through so much. My parents got divorced, we've had health scares, my dad has constantly had different girlfriends/wives, I've struggled with depression, my brother with anger and my mom has continuously struggled with money. I've trusted the wrong people, and been let down by what feels like everyone. But my mother has ALWAYS been real with me. She made mistakes, but she didn't hide them from me. She is raising four insane children without any help and she messes up sometimes but she is doing a pretty damn good job. I trust her with my life, she is the one person who has never ever hurt me. She hurts for me, that I've gone through so much. But she never even thinks about herself. She has been betrayed and lied to and has felt completely alone for a very long time and she never cries. She is so, so strong. she is my rock. I am forever grateful that God has blessed me with such an incredible human being that I get to call mom.

Bloom

The Paper Kites - Bloom (Official Music Video)
This song made me realize that it is okay to start over. I heard this song when I was struggling with a lot, and for some reason it has just stuck with me. It's a constant reminder that everything will be alright.

You've Got A Friend In Me

Randy Newman // 2:04
toy story - you've got a friend in me music
This song is for my little brothers and sister. We irritate each other to no end and usually ignore each other but they have always been there. I'm their big sister, they can always count on me and I will always support them. They are my best friends.

Kiss Me

Ed Sheeran // 4:36
Kiss Me - Ed Sheeran (with lyrics)
This past year has been the best year of my life. Chad Slone was my best friend, but has become so much more than that. We fight and hardly ever agree on things, but it is impossible to stay mad at him. He makes me feel so safe and beautiful. I thank God everyday for this dorky red-head, and hopefully will soon be able to call him my husband.

Sister

Dave Matthews Band // 3:56
Dave Matthews - Sister - Music Video
My sister is one of the most important people in the world to me. She has seen me at my very worst and still calls me her best friend. Our bond is unbreakable. It hurts to know that some sisters hate each other, or don't even talk. I don't understand how that is even possible. I couldn't have made it without her. My sister is my back bone, she keeps me standing tall, and I keep her standing taller.
