It Is Well With My Soul

The first pastor to recognize gifts in me for ministry within the local church also recognized in me a passion for music, and did what she could to nurture the blend of passion and gifts in service to God.

Once, in Sunday morning worship, she let me play the prelude. I did an original arrangement of It Is Well With My Soul.

Today as I miss her, it is well with my soul when I think about her legacy, her mentoring of me and many other Baptist women in ministry, her ability to bring out gifts and passions in others.
