We’ve got to let those around us know we are believers in Jesus Christ, so I do my best to do that in my songs.”  She expresses that philosophy in her music as well.  Read the lyrics from “Blowing Kisses/Love Divine”:

Walkin’ down Broadway I saw a mom and her baby She came up to me And asked me for a dime I said now come on I’ll take you to this diner Gave her more than food It cost me 6 o’ 5

People don’t need just money, people need love and time Spent a little time with the hurting honey and got myself love-a-fied Now I’m

(Chorus) Blowin’ kisses to the one I love Blowin’ kisses to the father above Helpin’ others to feel His touch Blowin’ kisses to the one I love
