Last night, I stepped out of my comfort zone and took part in a 12 hour worship burn…where we offered God praise and worship for 12 hours straight. Six teams, 2 hours each. As a vocalist, usually two hours is a good maximum for keeping your voice strong without too much strain. I had theContinue reading “in His strength”
