Laura Hackett Park: Sing Your Way Into the Truth

God broke in and said, 'I know you’re concerned about your story, but do you want to be a part of My story?

So many of us are used to life being about us and our story, but through hours of prayer and worship at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, Laura Hackett Park heard a word from the Lord. He simply asked her to be a part of His story.

“Singing your way into the truth” is a beautiful devotional story by this passionate and talented worship leader who has put in the hours to build a truly special relationship with Jesus. Laura has spent the last 20 years singing anywhere between 15 and 18 hours a week. Her sets are two hours at a time and they mostly sing spontaneously from the Bible. Every day they pick a passage as a team and turn that scripture into a worship set.

With that much time in prayerful worship, Laura has so much to share with our audience of worship teams and worshippers.
