[045] How to Get Out of a Slump and Start Your Next Act with Singer/Songwriter Brianna Barnes

How did you start your 2020? Was it filled with hopes and dreams that came crashing in the very first quarter of it? The bible in the book of proverbs 16:9 says a man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps. Did God transform your plans into something greater and better?

In this episode, I have Brianna Barnes, a musical theater actor for the Broadway stage, Christian singer/songwriter, and a playwright. She believes it is through the power of the creative imagination that the world is transformed.

Listen in to learn how God worked in mysterious ways and led Brianna on the path of recording her very first music album after her dreams of making it to Broadway this year came crashing. You will also learn three ways you can get out of a funk and create your masterpiece.
