About the book
As a student sitting in a church music class one day, I had an epiphany – the act of worship is meant for an audience of one – THE One – God alone and no one else.
Now, that may not be a profound thought to you, but as an actor, singer, dancer, director, writer who had been the loudest kid in the choir and on center stage in the church from the beginning, worship services were a production, a chance to perform for a crowd and, oh yeah, God too. I did have an understanding that I was meant to lead others and “set the stage” for worship to happen, but what about me and MY worship experience? Was I really worshipping? On that day, I realized that I had to change my perspective and it changed my life.
In this book, I offer some Bible based devotions that may help you start your time with God, whether alone, in a small group, or as you lead a congregation to worship. I know that it is not always easy to think about worship when life is getting in the way, when work is hard, money is tight, people are leaving and your heart is hurting. We all experience loss and feelings of separation. Losing both my parents too early, I felt disconnected from my past. A divorce was the loss of a desired future. Having cancer interrupted my present as a daily reminder of the realities of mortal life. The only thing I have found to bridge the separation is joyful faith, believing that no matter what is taken, there is One who always gives more than I could ever lose.
Even in a crowd, worship is personal. I hope Worship for One books will help you experience the joy of worship for One by one in your daily life.

Excerpt from the book
Grow Up, Grow Deep
Now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. -
Paul was telling the Corinthians to press on to maturity in Christ – to grow up and grow deeper, moving past the superficial. Once we become Christians, we have a zeal to please the Lord, but we also have to remember that God looks at our hearts not just our actions. If our hearts are not filled with faith, hope and love, then the acts we do will be hollow, empty attempts to earn His love. We must reach past the actions to the One who can empower them. Stop trying to do what is right and focus on the One who is right. When it comes from your heart, then you will please the Father and truly know who Jesus is.
