The story behind Little Bit of Faith
Karen put heart and soul into this original lyrical collection that takes listeners on a journey through grief to hope. Her story:
I am a writer, but when my husband, Bob, died of cancer at age 38, I had no words. For months I couldn't write, not even in a journal. Then one night while standing in my kitchen trying to cook dinner, I began to sing. I sang about our stories, about celebrating life. I loved telling Bob's stories, our stories. Yet I desperately missed his touch, his smell, his laugh. Could our stories bridge Heaven and Earth? Could they connect us on this journey?
Bob was a music connoisseur. Music filled our lives together. I was sure this song that played over and over in my head was a gift from Bob in Heaven. As the months went by, I had more questions about life, after life, destiny. Writing songs helped me ask my questions, express my grief, and heal.
Music is such a powerful healer. I wanted to share the words I'd found with someone else who might need them. This journey of grief is full of sorrow, but also joy and hope and grace. A little bit of faith brought me through. I hope this CD will inspire you and bring a little bit of faith for your journey, too.
