The Newest News. "But I Say Love" Spiritual Songs and Hymns.
But, over the years, my internal compass has started pointing me back to the place where my faith journey began. Now, I am beginning to "embrace the mystery" (But, I say Love). I sing these songs now, (which I couldn't have just a few years ago) not with assurance, but with actual faith and with deep gratitude. I am thankful for the gift of intuition, sensing, and feeling things that are True because God knew my weakness would be trust and needing proof . After a time when He stepped back and allowed me to feel his absence, He is making Himself more tangible for me through progressively coming nearer so I can sense the difference. It is both a blessing and a curse to feel as deeply as I do. I feel overstimulated in this crazy world but also feel the energetic life force coming from a tree.
The music flows from these depths. And the Holy Spirit within my fragile humanity still believes even when I am unable. He trusts on my behalf. And slowly but surely, like a frightened child, I am edging closer to faith's door. Not because I fear Him, but because I am learning I don't have to. My prayer, practically on my face, a decade ago was for God to show me the truth so clearly and to please, please be so gentle with me that I would never be afraid to trust or unable to believe again.
I wish you well on your faith journey. Don't rush. He's got you. I hope this music will comfort you as it does me. I hope "I Miss the Way" will break your heart like it does mine. And my most excited hope is that my own song, "But I Say Love" will help you know that it's ok to not get it and that you will sigh a big sigh of release and PEACE.
Please share all of this with your friends, not for the sake of the music, but for the sake of healing and Light in the world today.
I am proud to release a new Christian CD reminiscent of the days when my faith journey first began.

THIRD ALBUM GIVE IT A DAY IS NOW AVAILABLE ON ITUNES
Travelin’ Girl Productions proudly announces the release of Heather McCready’s third album, Give It A Day, a musical collage of deeply emotional, captivating songs, as well as blissful, imaginative melodies. With a voice that has been described as “angelic”, “distinctively pure”, and “simply gorgeous”, McCready truly shines with arguably her best release yet. The album is lighthearted, as well as deep and moving. As McCready continues to grow in artistry, she reveals immense talent that begs to be shared with the world.
“I am incredibly excited to release Give It A Day,” says McCready. “ My co-producer, Milo Deering, and I worked long and hard on this album, pouring so much heart and passion into every aspect of its creation. It takes a dedicated team to make a great record. I am fortunate that my band members and engineer put so much of themselves into this album, resulting in what we believe is an extraordinary record.”
Give It A Day showcases McCready’s distinctive sound as a singer-songwriter with her creative blend of bluegrass, Celtic, classical and folk sounds, intelligent and thoughtful lyrics and the harmonies that are central to her music. Heather truly understands the art of making music by focusing on detail, simplicity and purity of sound. The title track on the album, one of McCready’s favorite songs, captivates listeners with its catchy tune, instilling a sense of sheer happiness and hope as her cheerful tenor fills the audience with optimism. Other notable songs include: “You Came To Me”, an endearing track about finding your soul mate with descriptive analogies; “Hold Me Tender”, a fun Irish and bluegrass love song with a modern twist; and “Freefalling”, is an engaging and mystical tale so soothing it leaves you feeling as if you are freefalling yourself with the characters in the song.
