This is a term we use a lot. But, our feeling of being at home is so dependent upon the people we love surrounding us. A support system that is a pillar in our lives.
This week Jael came home from Mexico. But, things were not to be as she expected. Even the weather was an adjustment. Processing all the changes of reverse culture shock plus stepping back into a world so familiar but strangely foreign. People change and places have seasons. The tossing about is something expected when returning from another culture.
Home definitely is where you feel safe. You are loved and not alone. Comforted when weeping and laughed at when silly. It’s where the acceptance of who you are reigns triumphant over what you do. The location can change but relationship is the anchor our life’s bow is connected to.
Above all home is where God has set you. He has set your heart desires to love what He has for you ,and where you belong.
This summer I have been taking a bit of a break, to work more on song writing. Thus also, an absence of updates on my website!
I am presently in Mexico working with Youth With A Mission, working with the worship team that leads songs for the groups of teens that come through to do work projects in that area.
I will return to Montana the third week of August. I decided that it would be great to pursue my college education then, and continue to build relationships back home in Kalispell..
Thank you for all the support, love, encouragement and all that sustains my music. I know a lot of you have purchased my songs to support my mission trip and I’m really grateful.
I miss performing, but there will be more time for that later.

So. I am going to take some time to tell all Y’all what I have been listening to as far as music goes lately.
I have been enjoying Pierce that Veil way too much lately. So good. Parental advisory though. I wouldn’t suggest it for the children, unless you want to explain a lot of things to them.. Yeah.
Also. Ingrid Michaelson. just YES. so great. A really great acoustic option.
But yeah. Mostly been listening to Pierce the Veil and Sleeping with Sirens.
Rock & Roll. \m/
In 2011 Jael sat down and wrote a song for a very dear friend. It was titled, “Unconditional”. It’s about the struggle a friend has on behalf of a friend that is going through tough times. The pursuit and tenacity to see that someone knows their value and that they are not alone. Even during the writing of this song, Jael herself felt very alone.
Last year she was asked to sing at Creationfest West on the Indie stage. There, with her band, she won 2012 Indie Artist of the year, and this song was chosen to be placed on a sampler CD to be distributed by those who purchase tickets to all Creation festivals and Sonshine Fest starting mid-May. They also want to offer it, via email, to anyone who has already purchased their tickets.
Although written two years ago, she wants to thank her producer Neil B. Young. Also Britt Espinosa, a friend who poured hours into pre-production, re-writing and editing. These guys polished it up for recording in 2012.
Jael is humbled by the privilege of being on this CD with so many other amazing Indie artists.
