Meet Dove Award winning singer-songwriter Meredith Andrews at MOMcon 2014! Meredith and her husband Jacob have two sons, Maverick and Remy. Balancing music and family can sometimes be a challenge, yet motherhood has impacted her art in unexpected ways.
“I was always a people pleaser and I feel like now that I’m a mom, I’m not anymore. I’m just over it,” she says with a smile. “I’m not trying to please anybody. I just want to please the Lord and love people.”
“I know my relationship with the Lord has changed since I had the boys,” she continues. “If they are throwing food at me or laughing and talking to me, my love for them doesn’t change. How much greater is God’s love for us? It’s not based on our performance. God doesn’t love us more on our good days and less on our bad, and that was revolutionary for me.”
“When I think of other moms listening to these songs, I just hope that whether they are at home with their kids or in the car driving to soccer practice or whatever that even just for three minutes, they can sense the presence of the Lord and God’s love for them. We need that recharge. We need to get plugged into the source and have that time with the Lord. That’s my prayer.”
