Joined choir under the direction of Kay Fogg
Favorite things about singing in the choir is the sense of harmony & family
Thoughts on her music ministry:
For Jeanie, music is pure worship.
Doesn't sing a song unless she feels God calling her through the holy spirit to sing a particular solo.
Her music is a vehicle, used by God to draw others closer to God or to bring comfort through the Holy Spirit. (This is what leads her to sing at funerals)
Summing up her ministry:
Jeanie's ministry is one of encouragement
Helping people to be all they can be in the Lord.
