album art 3My first full-length solo album, “Where God Is”, was released on December 4, 2014. It has been quite a journey getting here, but I wouldn’t change it!

Music has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. I loved my years of training in classical piano, and I tried my hand at a few other instruments. I went off to university and studied other things, but no matter what I have done since then, the music kept calling me, and has stayed with me. I enjoy my role in music ministry at two local churches, and I get to share my love of music with hundreds of students as an elementary school music teacher. Seven years in a local band led me to discover my voice, and a love for songwriting. Going solo several years ago allowed me to focus on my own music and spend more time with my family. I’m very thankful to my husband and my four children for their patience and their support! Last spring, I was lucky enough to meet the right people to form a new band. They are a talented, dedicated and creative bunch, and they were a great asset as we developed this album. I couldn’t have done it without them–thanks, Del, Eugene and Jim! I know there are plenty of musical good times ahead!

Music is my way to recharge, to be creative, to express my faith experience, and to connect with people. Sometimes creativity (and life!) is messy, and doesn’t fit into neat little boxes, which is where my blog comes in. Whatever brings you here, thank you for stopping by, and I hope you pick up a little something to take with you on your way. May God bless you in everything you do!

  1. I love your blog. I believe in and love my Lord and Saviour, but it is has been awhile since I have been to church and it is like I can feel his embrace in your music/blog. What a wonderful feeling. May the Lord continue to bless you.

  2. So Tina, you decided to join the small clan of Uncle Spike followers, sometimes known as The Spikey’s….

    I really appreciate you wanting to become a new follower, after all, there are many many interesting and entertaining blogs out there.

    Anyway, I hope you like my upcoming posts and if you get bored one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too.I have added plenty of categories now to help readers.

  3. Tina, thank you SO much for following Petals Unfolding. I am honored that you chose to do so!

    If you want posts from me in your email box, you have to check instant posts in your reader. Otherwise you won’t get any.

    And I do think outside of the box. Just letting you know. I am diverse and have come to realize God comes in many forms and with many names. I am able to communicate with so many people in this way, for I have come to understand God is God, no matter what someone calls God. And yes, I think deep, sometimes so much so that many “don’t get it”.

    And last, but certainly not least, thank YOU for nominating me with an award. I just glanced at it and without coffee yet, I know it begins with an “L” and it kind of looks like lobster. LOL Don’t mind me. What you see is what you get. Honest Aim! ME!

    OK. Enough prattling. I have to get up to feed my cats. AND coffee for me! Dear Heavens……I need coffee!!! LOL

    Love and gratitude,

  5. Had 10 years as resident in Chatham. Met Jesus there and a bunch of gracious believers. Music there often included the likes of Gary Kivell. May you find seasons of blessing in many places as you redeem the time with your music ..Doug Blair
