Singing and Songwriting Journey
"I have been singing for as long as I can remember. As a three year-old, I recall adding new lyrics to my nursery rhymes. My family always encouraged my love for the arts, and allowed me to go to various auditions for shows, plays, and small feature films. In college, I was in a reggae band, a jazz band, and a gospel choir called Judah Chorale. Then I joined the worship team for Chi Alpha, a campus ministry, and I became a member of the choir at my church in Arkansas, The Church Alive.
Writing music began as a way to convey my feelings about some of the painful things that I had experienced in life. I did not always feel comfortable sharing my thoughts and emotions, but I desperately needed a way to express myself. I started with poetry and progressed to songwriting. I have found that some of my deepest longings are met in moments of artistic release. I feel heard and held and safe."
"Growing up, I thought I had a perfect family life⎯⎯my father played professional football and my mother owned two successful businesses⎯⎯ then turbulence hit. My parents started having relationship problems and I ended up with a mysterious illness that left me unable to walk. Doctors gave me a 50/50 chance of living.
I remember my mom sitting next to my bed, and saying, “Meghan, if I could trade places and take this sickness upon myself I would.” I responded, “Mom, it’s okay. When I die, I’m going to heaven!” She just started bawling. As she left the room, I heard God’s voice for the first time, and He said, “Meghan, that is selfish for you to want to be with me now. Your Mommy and Daddy need you.” I was shocked to think that wanting to be in heaven was selfish. After thinking it through, I replied, “God, if it’s okay with you, please let me live so my Mom and Dad won’t be sad.”
