About Me


I am a singer/songwriter from the South of England. From a young age I have played the violin and piano and later picked up the guitar as a teenager. Although I grew up in a Christian home I didn’t have a deep understanding of what it meant to be a follower of Christ and that I am saved by God’s grace through faith in Jesus. I came to this realisation at the age of 16 when I first attended Calvary Chapel Portsmouth. As I would learn more about the Lord I would express through song what God was revealing to me. My hunger for the Lord grew and I attended a Bible College in Austria and from there went on a missions to trip to Kosovo. Little did I know that God would be calling me to Kosovo to spend the next six years of my life at the age of 19! Proverbs 16:9 says “ A man plans his ways but the Lord directs his steps”.

 

God taught me innumerable lessons during this time and blessed me with a wonderful husband, Ilir. We served in the children’s ministry and would often write songs together in Ilir’s native language Albanian for the church and children’s ministry. We returned to live in England in 2007. In recent years, following the addition to our family of 2 children; James and Kaitlin, the Lord once again began to give me new songs as I meditated on scriptures. In the last 3 years I have written over 20 songs. While I did not know the purpose of these songs, the Lord has brought wonderful friends along the way to encourage me to share them. Ruth Hill has been a great source of encouragement and has worked tirelessly to produce beautiful videos for my songs on youtube. In recent months I have felt the prompting of the Lord to continue this walk of faith by having my songs re-mastered and put into a format available for people to buy. It is my prayer that these songs may minister to you. It is with thanks to Leon Davey that this has been made possible by creating this website. We give all the glory to Jesus! Thank you for joining me on this journey! God bless you richly,
