A BRAVE, AWARD-WINNING SONGSTRESS IN OUR MIDST
September 14, 2010 --- I met with Kristin Schweain today as part of a series weíre putting together on Women and Infants.  She "moved into" the hospital in early June due to having a high-risk pregnancy. Sheís since made her room an extension of her home back in Jackson, MO Ė photos of loved ones, lots of pictures colored by her young daughter, books and other comfort items that can transform a hospital room...

BEHIND THE SONGS, DAY #9
June 09, 2008 --- Have you ever been given a gift by someone that was absolutely perfect? You may have thought or said, "How did you know?" That's the feeling behind this song. I started writing this song when ZOEgirl was on the Free Experience Tour. I had been thinking about when Jesus was praying in the Garden of Gethsemane on the night of his betrayal. Growing up I had learned that in that moment... [full story]

BEHIND THE SONGS, DAY #8
June 08, 2008 --- This song came to me after I had been looking back over some journals I had written right after high school and during my early college years. I had been involved in some youth ministries and was so amazed at the things I witnessed God doing in other peoples' lives. I saw such a passion and excitement for God. I... [full story]

BEHIND THE SONGS, DAY #7
June 07, 2008 --- I have always loved hymns, probably because I grew up singing them. One of my favorites has always been Onward Christian Soldiers. Growing up, there was something about that song that always made me feel better. I think because I pictured a group of people all marching together, supporting one another, united in their stance for Christ. Like anyone, I was comforted to know that I'm not "in this alone." I guess you could say this is sort of my modern day version of that hymn... [full story]

BEHIND THE SONGS, DAY #6
June 06, 2008 --- I started getting the idea for this song one morning after attending my Bible Study group. It's a small group for women with young children, and I have been so blessed to have them in my life. In our study we had been talking about finding balance in our lives, and how the idea of the perfect balance can be deceiving because it sometimes causes us to focus too much on outward "togetherness" which can really be masking inward turmoil....

BEHIND THE SONGS, DAY #5
June 05, 2008 --- This song was inspired after someone I care very deeply for described to me a powerful encounter with God they experienced after praying for the first time. It was a moment that provided hope and sparked a new outlook, and it affected me very deeply... [full story]

BEHIND THE SONGS, DAY #4
June 04, 2008 --- I like to consider myself a pretty positive person when it comes to my outlook on life. Well, I have my moments though, like anyone else when I have trouble seeing the bright side, or trusting that things will all work out. I wrote this song a couple of years ago after hearing someone mention the phrase, "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade." I sat down at my keyboard with... [full story]

BEHIND THE SONGS, DAY #3
June 03, 2008 --- I wonder a lot about what is as the root of this cultural epidemic that leads so many of us to a path of self loathing and self destruction. What causes me to focus so intently on the flaws I see in myself, so much so that it's all I see? What causes people to feel so alone and inadequate? There must be some type of validation that we are missing, something to let us know that we can in some way make our mark... [full story]

BEHIND THE SONGS, DAY #2
June 02, 2008 --- This song is sort of complicated for me to describe. It makes perfect sense to me, but when Iím trying to explain itís origin to people, I often feel that unless they had a birdís eye view inside of my mind and heart, they may not grasp that itís message is kind of two-fold. So, here goes my explanation. To me, life isnít just a color, its many shades of that color, layer upon layer. (I prefer to think in terms of blue.) Take the... [full story]

KRISTIN SCHWEAIN TO RECORD FULL ALBUM
December 06, 2007 --- I am so excited to announce that I've decided to forgo the idea of just making an EP and do a full album! I've been so overwhelmed (in a good way!) with all of your feedback and comments on the first few songs. Thank you so much! Many of you kept saying that you couldn't wait to hear the rest of the album... and that got me thinking, "Why am I not just doing a full album?!" I can't begin to tell you how incredible it feels to be able to share this music with you. [full story]
