2018 has been a challenging year here at Worship Artistry. I guess I shouldnâ€™t be surprised. Great ambition always meets great resistance. Time to learn some lessons.
This year we had a lot on the docket, not the least of which was a full mobile update. When Worship Artistry started, Netflix was still sending you DVDs in the mail and you could reach every corner of your smartphone screen with your thumb. This year we've been developing our mobile site. Developing it is kind of an understatement. We're reinventing the way you will learn songs online and guess what? Weâ€™re 85% of the way there! We could probably release it right now, but our motto isnâ€™t â€œBring your good enough." Itâ€™s â€œBring your best." Weâ€™re bringing ours and the wait is going to be worth it. Still, I hate waiting.
Our motto isn't "Bring your good enough."
This year we also began production on vocal lessons with Shelby Rollins. Shelby isnâ€™t just a great singer. Sheâ€™s a pro vocal coach. Her lessons are incredible and we canâ€™t wait to launch them. The launch is just around the corner, but I want it to be here now. Iâ€™m sure youâ€™ve never felt like that.
Great ambition always meets great resistance.
2018 also brought it share of personal struggles. We're not some big company who only cares about the bottom line. We're a small, tightknit team that cares deeply about one another. When one hurts we all feel it and we've all taken turns lifting one another up this year. Life happens and sometimes it slows you down. It's okay.
So Iâ€™m learning patience. Iâ€™m learning God sees the big picture and Heâ€™s strengthening us for that sprint across the finish line. Itâ€™s right there. Momentum is building. Worship Artistry is going to look really different this time next year. Weâ€™re grateful for the community we have here and we're committed to serving you better everyday. We couldnâ€™t do it without you. Thanks for cheering us on. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
