Two weeks ago I went up to the Premier Christian Radio studios in London to record an interview and a song (accompanied by Bill Sherrington) for the Unsigned Show hosted by Lorretta Andrews. The interview is being aired tonight (Sat 4th March) at 6pm on Premier Gospel and 9pm on Premier Radio.
I am continually amazed at the journey God has been leading me on since I felt God put it on my heart to not hide my songs behind four walls. I have always loved encouraging people and for me music, song writing and singing is such a wonderful tool to do this. I’m able to share my journey, my struggles and the way God leads me through it all, and remind people that they are not on their own – there is a God who knows them by name and loves them very much.
It was a new and exciting experience going to a radio station, and recording in the studio. It was slightly surreal, but I am so blessed to be getting my music “out there” and to be able to encourage more people. I’m grateful to those who see or hear something in me and give me opportunities to share.
One of the exciting things over the last few years is that I have set up ‘Kat Mills Ministries’. This is a non-profit banner that supports, encourages, and invests in worship leaders and Christian artists. Through it I am able to give people opportunities to grow in their faith and grow in their God-given gifts through teaching, lessons, and opportunities to record. In my life I have faced discouragement and God has turned this around into a passion to see people encouraged, lifted up and believed in.
I remember an amazing music teacher at my school who believed in me, and saw past my difficulties and struggles and saw the potential in me. She gave me chances to grow musically, and as a person and for that I am so grateful and hope I can be that person for other people.
So last Saturday I took Rachael Smith into the Crown Lane Studios to do some recording. Rachael is a very gifted singer songwriter I met several years ago. It has been a privilege to be part of her song writing journey, and see her grow and thrive in this beautiful gift. It was a great session and she recorded four songs that clearly displayed her faith and love of God. I know these songs will bless many people. (I will post some on my blog soon!) I am excited to see what God will do through this beautiful woman of God.
I just want to encourage you in whatever you do to not to underestimate how much you can impact someone’s life through encouragement, kindness or just being there.
Wishing you a blessed weekend.
