My New Single "You Only Die Once" is HERE!


You know what’s exciting?? I got a couple of new pairs of socks with my Nikes. They’re made out of bamboo and sooo comfortable. Yep. NO I’M KIDDING I MEAN THAT’S COOL TOO BUT FOR GOSH SAKES I’M RELEASING A SONG TODAY AND I’M A LITTLE BIT HAPPIER ABOUT THAT. ahem.

I’m not going to blab endlessly – because I like the music to speak for itself – but I am going to scream about a couple of things.

First, I’ve scheduled the release of this song to take place on a dear friend’s birthday. She was the only person other than my family whom I shared lyrics with/squealed with before the release of this song! THIS ONE’S FOR YOU, GIRL. I hope you have the most fabulous of birthdays. (Also consider it my apology for falling off the face of the earth. xD)

Second, this song is really close to me. It’s one of those love letter songs – the kind where I feel Jesus’ hands moving around in my heart and I have no choice but to write down the words. This is a song about a life that is greater than anything we’ve ever dared to imagine. This is a song about only dying once – on the cross with our Savior.

“For the love of Christ compels us,
having concluded this,
that One has died for all,
therefore all have died.”
- 2 Corinthians 5:14

The cosmos have been singing about it forever. I’m just joining in. :) LISTEN AND ENJOY, YOU GUYS. Your feedback keeps me going, dreaming, smiling, and feeling like the most blessed girl on the face of the earth. thank you. xx

  5. Oh, Abbiee, I want to grab your hands and skip around the room! This is so amazing! Your wisdom and grace penetrates the song, but not as much as God's wisdom and grace. This song is one that I think I will have to listen to multiple times to fully appreciate and understand, and so I already added it on Spotify.

    I AM SO STINKIN PROUD OF YOU AND EXCITED FOR YOU AND GAH!

    For it is so true that we have already died and the life we not live we live in Christ (see pretty much all of Romans). So if we've already died, why do we live in fear of death? If Christ's death on the cross is our death and His life is our life, why do not we live the full and missional lives that God gives us? Oh, the grace and joy that awaits us when we start to /live/.

    Thank you for your song. Keep going girl. I'll be listening.

  16. I'm just so impressed that you've been able to achieve actually getting your music out there like this! Also, the sermon excerpt at the beginning was an interesting and effective touch; it really went with the message of the song. I have a suggestion- when you're done with the better blogger series, you should do an article or two on the process of actually recording and releasing music. I'd like to try and do the same but I have no idea where to begin!! Anyways, nice job and congrats!

    1. GAH THANK YOU SO MUCH, NINA!! Also, that is a great idea!! thank you for the suggestion. :) I love requests for posts/series and that sounds like something I'd be super interested in doing!! I collaborated with Sophia @ The Teentreprenuer blog a little while ago, where I wrote a post about how I got started on my indie music career and I talk a bit about how the recording process goes -- if you want to check that out, it's right here. But otherwise, I'd love love love to do a series about how I record music and get it out there on the internet and would love for my knowledge on the topic to be helpful to someone!! So thank you for that. ;) Look for it on my blog in the future!! ♥
