That’s Not Something You Do Every Day #22

January 26, 2024

Ken, me, and Elijah

Skip dinner on a Friday night and spend four hours in the recording studio instead with this talented musician and goofball? Why, yes please.

Man, I love my life.

What can I say about Elijah? A year ago, I brought one of my songs to him to ask his opinion, he helped me put a worship night together, and he was very encouraging when I did my first concert.

He’s also an awesome worship leader, great singer, and good friend. Methinks the two of us need to write a song together so we can record some more.


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.
