Hi there,

Thanks for stopping by! It’s my life’s mission to share Christ’s hope freely through music and media that lifts.

Though at times I’ve shared hope through exercise videos, classes, and even self-help books, when it comes down to it, Jesus is really all the hope we need. When our efforts to fix life’s heartaches have failed, Christ’s hand reaches out to lift us. And since life is short – and because I’ve grown-up a little and don’t feel the need to please everyone as a Creative anymore – I’ve completely revamped my site and brand to reflect what matters most to me – Jesus. I’m happy to say neither UpliftingEva or RiseUpandSmile are my blog names because I don’t have all the answers. But Christ does. Any solutions I’ve ever had have always come from his light. Though I’ve tried to reflect that in my writing, I believe my new site and content make it abundantly clear – Jesus Christ is our Savior in every sense of the word.

As someone who’s struggled with depression, anxiety, and other health conditions, I’ve learned that when life is darkest my Heavenly Parents and brother, Jesus Christ, still love me and know me. That truth has helped more than any happy habit. This is why I want to speak and sing about those truths – at no cost to anyone. God’s motivation to me through music is a gift that’s meant to be paid forward. The only “payment” I can hope for is that you’ll share anything here that lifts you.

I pray the songs and stories here will help YOU feel our Heavenly Parents’ love. Christ comforts and carries all of us. Thank you for listening, reading, and helping spread his hope. Together, let’s learn to love and lift like Christ.
