music at a time like this (CD)

Some choose and others are forced to re-story their lives. Either way, this entails hard work.

music at a time like this is a song collection extrapolated from research material that is intended for “times like these” when the sea is rough, the road bumpy, and the spaces between the rocks and hard places grow tight.

Don’t just listen. Please sing along.
May these songs ease your load.
May your face be such that all the world will be happy.
