I love almost any kind of music. My favorite instrument is the saxophone although I can only play the piano and guitar. I love Latin and Jamaican music, jazz anything with rhythm!
From a young age all I wanted to do in our church was to preach, but most of all, I just want to worship.
As with most of my life, things didn’t just happen for me, I was pregnant with our first baby girl and at four and a half months I had a miscarriage. It became a vicious cycle, the joy of pregnancy and then the loss of a baby. In between the doctor put me on fertility tablets and on top of the loss of my babies I picked up kilo by kilo! In my heart, I was questioning God the Father and I really wondered if He ever loved me. I couldn’t understand how everybody around me had it so easy – you know that me , myself and I?! We were working for the Lord, yet we were having this battle.
We were fortunate to meet Dr. Chris Niemandt, the most amazing gynecologist at the Wilgers hospital in Pretoria. He took the time to evaluate me, diagnose the problem and the subsequent pregnancy became our first born. (I went into the hospital a staggering 138.5kg! That is a story for another time).
After our move to White River, I had a new gynecologist which turned out disastrous for me and I had two more miscarriages!
This time something changed in me and the result was that this pain ignited something deeper in me and stirred an urgency in my heart to express myself through songs and music. I made a sound decision that I will not let what I was thinking in my heart come out of my mouth! So, instead of words of anger and hurt, I focused on praising the Lord. It was hard, very, very hard but looking back and knowing the wonderful blessing of my three sons, out of all these tears something amazing emerged.
