In the Shadow of the Cross (Get Up)
With a true heart and passion for Christ, "In the Shadow of the Cross", is truly an inspiring and original CD of what one woman can do with what she believes in. From the worst of times to the best of times, every song on this CD tell's a story of one woman's struggle thru life's journey and is enveloped thru a passion for Christ, his love and power that carries us through every step we take. We are not alone............... Having done it all thru her life, Trish has delved into the "Blues, Celtic, Folk Rock, and Contemporary Christian over the last 30 years. One thing that has never waivered is her love for God, people and her ability to witness thru the words and songs she writes. Filled with lyrics that will stir your heart up and melodies that will have you "get up" and want to sing and worship to, theirs is no lack of genres in this great compilation. From unique keyboards, to acoustic guitar, and to throw in some great electric leads and wonderful symphonic sounds, you will not lack for any style and message that will touch your heart. "In the Shadow of the Cross" deals with the struggling times when the weight of the world seems to be on our shoulders and there is truly one place we can run: In the shadow of the Cross. "There are good days and then there are those moment's in life when we wonder if we will survive it, " but Trish's true testimony is that thru the most universal language that God has given, we can share and support each other in this roller coaster ride we call life. Every song on this CD is a special, intimate moment in life, some happy, some sad, but the end result is that between the rare vocals and heart driven songs, you will find yourself understanding, sharing, and listening to one of a kind tunes that will stay with your heart and mind throughout the entire day. Song's that will lead you into a wonderful worship and true testament of the Lord. Trish's simple mission statement is this: "I have worked with wonderful musicians all of my life, but it seems that I have been brought to a place now where I am asked to walk one on one with the Lord. He gives me the songs through my seasons in life. They are real and very dear to my heart. I write, record and produce them myself with his wonderful hand covering every step. There is so much music and musician's out in the world today, but in my heart, I believe that every song is written for "someone". Someone that the Lord has placed to witness to through music. We should never rival ourselves against one another, but come together for a greater cause in music: Touching souls and staying as original in our music as God has created us. This is our only way to touch everyone in the world and to offer a solution to solitude and suffering. Life has been a hard road for Trish, from an 18 year marriage ending, to trying to survive with absolutely nothing left to raise her children on. By the grace of God, he was there every step of the way and supplied exactly what was needed. He even went above and beyond what Trish had ever expected. A dream that was to truly be able to serve him in music ministry and to be able to share her testimony thru music with the world in hopes of a healing for others. "I have learned strength in my trials, and mercy in my downfalls, but I do know that there is a reason for everything that happens in life, and there is one person that will bring you out of the deepest parts of your darkest hours. Jesus Christ." With an even higher passion for serving now, Trish has accepted a position as Praise and Worship leader at a local community church and is using her music ministry to witness to as many people as she can. "We all live an everyday life, or at least most of us do, but the one thing I know to be true is that, no matter where we are in this life, there is a message in music that can always help us through times when we feel we can't go on, especially in the crisis our world is in today. My sincere prayer is that the music will touch your heart and soul and give you hope, healing and saving grace for our Lord Jesus Christ. "Love conquers all, and we can do ALL things thru Christ our Lord".......
