About the Book

Originally this was supposed to be a music album through the church Light of Glory Ministries that I was a member of, but in July 2017 when the church closed its doors, the project was shut down. For a year, the lyrics created, and the music recorded were just sitting around in the binder that I maintained gathering dust. In prayer, I asked God what I should do with this because a lot of time, effort, and work went into the creation of what had been accomplished. The idea of turning it into a book was given to me, and upon asking my former Pastor if he had any objections to me using the lyrics and having them copyrighted into a book, he said it sounded good to him.

The songs and book are formatted into sections like the four seasons of Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring. Within each season, I have shared some personal stories of what I have experienced in life, that are related to the songs created. Originally the project in music form was going to be titled Grounded, meaning everything we go through in life is manageable when you are grounded and connected by your relationship with God and Christ. Upon working on turning it into a book and getting acquainted with the lyrics and listening to the recordings I had saved, I was inspired to rename it Seasoned by the Seasons of Grace.
