Glimpses of You
I never intended to write an album. But while enjoying Christmas with my family in Iowa, God woke me up very early one morning with an insatiable desire to write. I began writing that very moment and over the next 13 months wrote 10 new songs!
The previous album, Amazing Grace, recorded during a trial, soothes the soul in comfort and grace as the songs point to the Counselor, Healer, Shepard, and Comforter, so needed when one is suffering.
This new album is a reflection of life after the trial.
God has taken me by the hand and pulled me out of the bondage of depression. God helped me focus on the power of His Word as a tool to bring me freedom, joy, and abundant life, even when depression pays a visit. I believe you will be able to hear my transformed, reclaimed life through this album.
What a testimony to the power of God!
We spared no expense on this project. The project started at Faith Music Missions with Ed Russ and David Chamberlain where we recorded vocals and piano. Some of the harmony vocals we recorded are mine, but you will also hear the lovely voice of Maria Komisky.
We then hired Nashville composer Steve Mauldin to write string arrangements for the album. A really cool tidbit about Steve is that he has worked on the last two Kendrick brothers’ movies! (Overcomer and War Room). Even cooler is what Steve emailed me after we finished recording.
“Thank you for using me on your project.
I only hope it will enhance the worship value of your music
and point listeners to the glory of God.“
What a privilege to work with God-loving people!
My husband Todd and I flew to Nashville to The Library recording studio to listen while the strings were recorded onto the album. Visit the gallery for pictures and videos!
On “Yet Still”, my oldest son Dakota Cotugno adds his rich cello playing to this powerful song about Christ’s willingness to love us still, despite His suffering.
This album took almost three years to complete. Smack dab in the middle of the process was a severe vocal issue, a car accident, concussion, four months of physical therapy, a financial crisis and a five-month complete stop of all work on the CD. God taught me so much in that time, and He especially increased my capacity to trust while waiting. Ironically, two songs on the album are about waiting!
I pray God will use this album to bring you close to Him and to make you love Him even more.
It sure does that for me!
