We Know

We are moving right along in the Coltrane Immergence Week and I am so thankful. Day 4 was another success. This week has flown by and I have been super productive.

Help Me Resolve

Moving on in the Coltrane Challenge, and day 3 was another success. Listened to a variety of Coltrane and enjoyed every note! Blessed to have been granted another piece based off the lyrics to A Love Supreme. Enjoy! “God is all/ Help us resolve our fears and weaknesses/ In you all things are possible/ Thank […]
