CrossHeart Ministries

CrossHeart Ministries is a support ministry for parents who have experienced the loss of a baby.  The ministry is close to my heart for several reasons:

  • My third child was a stillborn daughter who had inherited a ringed chromosome.
  • Robin, the founder of this group, has been a friend of mine since we attended high school together.
  • Robin and her husband are two amazing examples of humbly accepting God’s will in their lives and moving forward in His work.
  • CrossHeart’s support is open to dads, as well as moms.

A few months ago, Robin experienced another loss.  She talks about it on her blog.  I grieved with her through Facebook.

Robin’s loss happened at a time when I was being called to use the gifts that I have been given to better serve my Heavenly Father.  The result taxed the limits of my recording equipment and my guitar skills.  However, it’s still a gift from God that I hope has blessed Robin’s life, her ministry, and you.

It’s a song I call “Beauty for Ashes: Be Still and Know.”   You can right-click the images or text below to download — this one is free.

  1. I still feel the tears welling up when I listen to this song. But they are good tears.


  2. Elizabeth, this is a beautiful song! You are so very talented!

    1. Thank you both! It was hard for me to put the song online — I am my own worst critic, and I can’t stand to listen to myself perform it. However, I have a firm testimony that it is a gift from God, and I am grateful that I can help Robin in her ministry in some small way.
