Christian Songwriter’s Network

I just  came across this amazing resource yesterday, and absolutely must share it with you. As we’ve been going through the book “God songs” by Jimmy & Carol Owens & Paul Baloche on our podcast, this resource is extremely useful. There are a ton of great resources on the site, like songwriting tools links; songwriting resources; artist resources; etc. By far, the thing I am loving the best is the forum. They...

It is most definitely an art and a craft, one that I’m very passionate about. Kevin & I have been talking about doing a...

I couldn’t shake that idea of His Word changing us and our response to that truth. Out of that idea I started pulling images, ideas, and verses from the book of Hebrews to create a song that I...
