Two nights ago, I got up in front of an audience and told my testimony as part of a concert we put together. It was way out of the box for me, but I made myself do it anyway. Oh, I don’t get nervous playing the music—I’ve been on the piano since I was nine—but the talking part is another thing altogether.

I am so thankful for this group of people who a) put in a lot of hours practicing and working on the tech side of things, b) encouraged me every step of the way, c) cried while I did my testimony, d) tolerated my picture-taking 😏, and e) love Jesus.

I keep asking God, “Are You sure You want me to keep going to Nashville and record music?” I talked with my producer for over an hour today and told him, “I think I’m going to run out of ideas.” He laughed and said, “You said that six or seven songs ago.” 😂😂😂

About Marie de Haan

Marie is a gifted pianist, playing since the age of nine. As a teenager, she composed mainly instrumental piano music. She released her powerful debut single, “I Am Broken,” on October 22, 2020, a song whose creation drew heavily upon the trauma she endured as a victim of childhood sexual abuse. Marie held a benefit concert on September 10, 2021, in Skagit County. A portion of the proceeds went to CrossRoads Youth Ranch; this local organization—through equine therapy—empowers “at-risk and sexually exploited youth to heal, grow, and thrive.” She has continued to write music: Christian, folk, and country. Marie loves hiking, gardening, and photography. The Pacific Northwest—where she lives with her husband—is the backdrop for her favorite activities.
