Rachel Moore: "Insanity" is actually the eighth song I wrote. Many years before I could physically sing again, I wrote a book - never published - about my life, what God has taught me through the trials and beauty, and with a purpose to help those reading trust. So, from the chapters, I started writing songs. So "Insanity" was chapter eight in my story.
Rachel: I went through 25 years of severe depression. Some of my earliest memories are of lying in bed asking Jesus to take me. "Insanity" comes from those years of feeling lost, alone, and hopeless. The end of the song only touches on the amazing grace and love God had for me during it all and the healing only He could give me.
Rachel: I have one other single out right now called "Grafted In," which is about our adoption process of our youngest daughter. As for a full-length album, we are hoping to get that out by the end of next year. This will give my audience a look into my story and view on how Christ took me through it all. I am both humbled and amazed at seeing what He does with it all.
Rachel: I have found that God has called me to both counsel through music and pastoral counseling, in which I am honored to have ministered to many throughout the years. The funny thing is that God does all the work; I am simply His servant. My hopes are to someday merge my music and counseling. It sounds odd, I know, but sometimes the things that seem so impossible are the things God uses to reach the unreachable.
Rachel: I am so thrilled that you asked this question. My husband, Andrew Moore, is amazing. Not only can he sit down and play any tune he hears, but he has the gift to compose some of the most glorious music I have ever heard. So when I started writing my story to sing, he read the lyrics and started creating the music to it. We are by no means professionals, but we have just allowed God to guide. Once I had the lyrics and he did his thing, I recorded my songs on GarageBand and sent them to Eric Copeland from Creative Soul Records. He then produced our music to what I could record vocals to professionally.
Rachel: Wow, that is a hard one, because I have a ton of favorites, but at the moment, two artists have my heart, so to say. The first artist would be Crowder. He has such passion. His style and use of the banjo in a lot of his songs are so pleasing to my musician soul. The second would be NF. I love how NF is so real with his songs. He shows the struggles we all fight with and always brings the glory back to God. That is my heart for my music: to touch on the taboo subjects and be real. Real for myself, my family, and those listening, but also share the real love God has for us.
Rachel: Yes, I would like to add that, even when we think we are so far gone from what we think, the world thinks, or the people closest to us think, we are not. God still loves us, cares for us, and is waiting to hold us. He is just waiting to give us a new song.
