58% of my goal has been reached. Thank you everyone!
Hey friends - thanks for all of your support. Because of you, I've been able to raise 2/3 of the monies needed to finish the album. And, the rest will be covered by us. I will keep this GoFundMe page live until December 31. Then, we're going to be finished with the album. We're looking at a February 2014 release - due to a few delays in production. We are so excited! Here's a reminder of what's to come!

"Let God Be Praised" Song Story
This message is going out to everyone on mine and Eric's personal email lists. Some of you accidentally already received an email from me last week. We were still learning how to use GoFundMe and we apologize.
I wanted to personally ask you to consider donating to my campaign to make a new album of worship songs called "Let God Be Praised". If you've already given - THANK YOU!
By praying, sharing or donating, you will be a big part of helping us get these songs out into the church at large. One of my greatest desires is to reach the lost, the hurting and those suffering using the music God has given me to communicate the hope of Jesus to others. I believe He has given me this set of worship songs to minister in the church.
We are amazed at how God continues to use the song "Your Great Name" in peoples lives. And now, it's time to give new songs to the church that they can sing to release power to His people - praising Jesus and giving God glory for His faithfulness ALWAYS!
Thank you to our friends and family that have already funded this project by pre-ordering a CD using GoFundMe.com/KrissyNordhoff. All of the money you give goes directly to helping cover recording costs.
We are trying to raise $15,000 by the end of September with this campaign. There are plenty of donation options at all financial levels. You can give $5 - $10 and receive digital downloads of the new music when it's ready. You can donate to get tickets and CD/8x10 to attend the night of worship release party we are planning between $15 - $50. You can order packages of music too ($100 - $250 levels). Lastly, you can even book me and/or my band to lead worship in your church or home ($500+ levels).
Eric and I have exciting plans for 2014. I will begin leading worship and teaching at worship leader conferences and retreats across the US (and internationally).
Thank you, in advance, for being a part of this new project recording. After you donate, we will periodically give you updates during the recording process with new videos and song updates.
Most importantly, thank you for praying for me and for these songs. Thank you also for passing the word to your friends and family using Email, Twitter and Facebook - GoFundMe has some great tools you can use easily. And for prayerfully considering donating at whatever level works for you!
Blessings and Love,
PS - Eric and I will be careful to keep the emails to a minimum and not fill up your inbox. We may only send one more email about this project - if any.

We ended last night with family worship together. I was playing whatever words and music came to my heart - the boys and Eric singing. Nothing makes Anthem fall asleep faster than her family singing Jesus over her. Very sweet.
Have a great week everyone! I would like to hit 15% of my goal before Wednesday. Will you help by pre-ordering my new CD?
This picture of my daughter, Anthem reflects exactly how I feel when I play and sing and write! Music is my first love - I can't wait to share these new worship songs with you! Thanks for your support!
Anthem just like Mommy

Thought you'd want to hear the story behind the song "Your Great Name".
So good to be with Michael Farren last night watching my boys be part of the youth group singing on the Shelley Johnson project. We will do something similar with this new project soon!
I just posted the story behind the song "So Good To Me". "Just a taste" of what's to come...

Hear some of the new song demos here.
Hi, welcome to my GoFundMe campaign page. I'm so excited to share my new songs of worship with you!
You may be a friend, a family member or you may have sung my song Your Great Name
in church. However you know me, I'm so thankful you're here. I hope you'll prayerfully consider giving to my campaign to record my first music album in over 5 years.
I've written hundreds of songs since then and I'm eager to start getting them out into the church. My heart over the last four to five years has been writing songs for the church - worship songs in particular. Seeing people across the US singing Your Great Name
on YouTube or in person has really impacted how I write and sing.
I'm a mom raising 3 kids at home, so I don't get to go out as often as I would like and lead worship. However, I lead worship here locally. I also have a heart to teach and mentor other female songwriters, artists and worship leaders. We are located here in South Nashville and it is a perfect place to reach young writers eager to grow in their relationship with Jesus and in their God-given gifting as songwriters and singers.
This new album of worship recordings, tentatively titled Let God Be Praised
is a partnership with producer Michael Farren (best known as the lead singer of the worship band Pocket Full of Rocks
and the worship song Let It Rain
). We are working with an excellent crew of worship musicians including as Stu G (guitarist for the UK worship band Delirious?). SONG STORIES
The new songs on the album reflect my heart and passion to see God's healing spread throughout the church. I desire to see faith in Him rise up in the hearts of His people. These songs are born out of personal experiences - each one has its own story. Here are some of the stories I'm telling in the songs of this album.
* Music played in these videos are from demo recordings - final recordings are pending.
LET GOD BE PRAISED
YOUR GREAT NAME
SO GOOD TO ME
BRING ON THE KINGDOM
GOD BEFORE ME
When you become a supporter through GoFundMe, I will regularly update you on the progress of the recording process and share more stories as we get closer to release date!REWARD HIGHLIGHTS
I'm offering lots of different REWARDS for contributing. There are low $ amounts that give you digital copies of my music. At the $15 level we will send you the CD personally autographed when it's ready (January 2014).
At higher levels, you get autographed 8x10 photos along with my whole collection of CDs.
At $50, join us for a night of worship and release party where we'll sing all of the songs and more!
At higher levels get bulk quantities of CDs to give away to your friends and family. We're even throwing in my husband Eric's popular Quietime CDs
at some of the higher levels.
We would love to give back to you or your church if you'd like to have me and/or my band with me in to your home or church to lead worship for a morning or evening service. These are some of my favorite rewards because we get to worship together and see what God wants to do as we enter His presence together.
All of the funds raised will go directly to production of the album. It will cost us $15,000 to record and manufacture the album
, so it would be a huge blessing to have these costs covered by your support before the album is finished.
Thank you again, for your support, encouragement and friendship.
In His peace,
