What did I get when I asked:

can you please record Psalm 23 in your mother tongue, I’ll send it back with music” ?

The Shepherd’s Song

I had to share this, I just couldn’t keep it to myself

75+ readers

80+ readers

across the globe, read the well-known Psalm 23 in their own language.

Each unique

2020 – The year I did something different for my birthday

I was wondering what I should do for my birthday. With only 3 weeks to go, there weren’t many options for social gathering given the lock down situation.

      Yeeees dear! And let it keep running over… and His goodness will follow you. I keep it playing in the background, sometimes 1 person on repeat, sometimes a full playlist. It’s amazing how the words jump out at me into my heart and brings encouragement.
      Thanks for reaching out my friend.

    Wow! The Lord planted a seed and you used the gifts He has given you to bring it to a full and beautiful fruition. Thank you.

      Hey Louise, it wasn’t without some enthusiastic friends who had friends. Every reader counted towards getting this done and each is sooo special. I really enjoyed taking the time to listen and play for each one. I’m convinced that each of us can use our gifts to touch 1 who will touch 1 who will touch 1 …. you get the idea. #LearningNotToHoldBack. 🙂

    This is another wonderful project Shaunelle. Its so calming listening to the piano and scripture in all the languages played and read from the heart. Really facilitates in setting the mind and flesh in a state for prayer, quiet time and worship. Thank you for sharing Shaunelle.
