Getting to Know Me More
Tell us your earliest childhood memory.
I loved eating at my grandmother’s house. I loved her chicken and dumplings, and her cornbread was the best!
What was the best compliment you’ve ever received?
My husband, David, told me that he “fell in love with the God in me!”
What’s something on your bucket list someone might not know?
I want to go see Celine Dion in concert!
What was cool when you were young but isn’t cool now?
Probably my hip hugger bell bottoms.
What’s the kindest act you have ever seen done (either to you, by you, or another)?
I’ve seen so many in my lifetime. But recently, when Hurricane Harvey flooded our place in Beaumont, Texas, someone we hardly know offered a fully furnished house with a pool for us to stay in as long as we needed and would not let us pay them anything.
If a news article was written about you, what would the title be and why?
She’s An Overcomer: What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger. Life has thrown some hard situations my way, but God’s faithfulness has always pulled me up and brought me through. Mercy and grace have overtaken me, and I have been able to see the goodness of God in the midst of hardship. Life has truly become an adventure! Hey, I even ride a Harley now with my husband, David!
What are some of the things you like to do in your free time?
My happiest moments are when I’m with my family! I love the experience of great food and really enjoy anything that allows me to be creative. Whether that’s cooking, decorating, fashion, or landscaping in my yard, I love it all!
How did you become a Daystar Singer?
Joni and I have been “besties” for over 30 years! I’ve also been singing on television and doing ministry for a long time, so we share a special bond through our love of worshipping God. My first experience as a Daystar Singer was helping the team at the Refreshing Times Conference in 2004. Soon after that, I moved to Fort Worth and Joni asked me to come on board full-time and join the Daystar Singers as one of the sopranos. I said, “yes,” and the rest is history! I’ve been a part of the team now for 12 years!
What is your favorite memory as a Daystar Singer, and why?
I would say our trips to Israel are my favorite memories. I love that land, and being able to sing and minister there has meant so very much to me.
Tell us about a time when God has been great in your life.
Actually, God has always been great in my life! Watching Him care for my sons through the tragic event of their father going to prison has been one of the most life-changing experiences I can remember. Their dad has been in prison for over 16 years now, and the Lord has been so faithful to my boys and me through it all. I’ve remarried an amazing man of God, David Murdock, and my sons have continued pursuing the Lord with all of their hearts. God has used them to inspire me as I’ve watched them grow and flourish in their gifts and callings in spite of experiencing so much loss. Yes, He has truly been great in our lives!
