Free Worship Songs of the week
New Song Discovery
Nico: Garrett and I met at WorshipMob a few years ago and we became really good friends. It’s funny that Garrett never really did any songwriting at all, and I was just starting to get into and loving to do. Garrett writes poetry about God, and one day I was at his house and he was sharing some of what he had written and I loved it. That began the process of us writing songs together. It was a first for me as I took lyrics that someone else had written and put it to music.
Latest Worship Tips & Reviews
Years ago, I was asked to lead worship at a summer camp for a small church. I felt elated to help kids experience God, and hammered out the details with their youth pastor over the phone. The next day he called back and cancelled, because the church board wanted him to go with someone else. He felt bad telling me, but I gleaned that they weren’t comfortable because having me there didn’t seem to line up with their traditional structure for leadership. Translation: a female in a key role was a no-go.
We’ve all heard it - the introductory words of the worship leader: “We’ll all stand to worship”. It’s usually at this point I’m trying to stifle the impish desire to shout out, pantomime style: “Oh no we won’t!”

This may be hard to believe, especially when I tell you I grew up a pastor’s kid, but up until I was about 25, the only hymn I knew was “Amazing Grace”. We just didn’t really sing them in the churches I grew up in. However, when I moved to DC, and started leading worship at NCC, I quickly realized I was missing a massive part of the worship legacy by not knowing them. So I started to dive in to the depths of Hymnland.
