How being a member of the choir has changed my life!

Posted Saturday, 10 March 2012, 12.34pm

Diane France is one of our Soloists. She heard us sing at a concert and just had to find out more. She auditioned and joined the choir and is now a great source of inspiration; a music leader for the Sopranos and a Soloist. Here is what she has to say about her decision to join the Lakes Gospel choir -

Without the lakes Gospel Choir, my life would be so completely different. God is in the middle of changing me as a Christian, in the way I walk with Him, in my friendships, in the way I see the world and the people around me and also in my understanding of Him and just how powerful and wonderful He is!

God has moved in my life and the lives of my family in such a wonderful way this year but it has been incredibly hard. Paul and I started the year as we do every other year, doing the day in - day out things that we normally do, taking each other for granted, struggling with finances, struggling with each other and generally existing. But God had bigger plans for us and has certainly shown me how to love my husband the way He intended me to, and has restored our marriage. He has shown us how to love each other like we did when we first fell in love, to talk to one another and to worship together.

Through the choir I have learned what true worship is and God is using that in such a huge way, it's actually quite scary but very exciting!! 

Seeing the faces of the people who come to hear us is a privilege, when we smile, they smile with us, when we cry, they cry with us and vice versa. I feel honoured and incredibly blessed to be a part of Lakes Gospel Choir!

I really believe that 2012 is going to be a very exciting year for the choir. And I can't wait to see what God has in store.
